Earned my first medal of 2017 at the #carlsbadhalfmarathon 🎉 The course was really pretty and the spectators were amazing! Technically my next half is in April but we'll see if I can actually wait until then, I want to earn more bling😝🏅 #carlsbadhalf #medalmonday #earnit #runner #runningcommunity #runnersofinstagram #marathon #halfmarathon #goaldigger #morebling #racebling #triplecrown #triplecrownbound #runsandiego #sandiegorunners #fitfam #fitness #carlsbad

When I got up this morning I didn't want to run. I'm so glad my mind convinced the rest of my body to run. #iloverunning #justdoit #runsandiego #run #running #getoutthere #beactive #wanderingtheunknown

Perfect amount of cloud coverage to run the @carlsbadmarathon we had a nice group of chairs @teamhoytsd and @jdeaton15 killing it today! It's a blessing to run with them. They inspire me and push and run harder! #meteorologist #carlsbad #carlsbadhalfmarathon #runsandiego #runners #runnerscommunity #running #halfmarathon #fitfam

"Starting something can be easy, it is finishing it that is the highest hurdle."
Today wasn't my day. In truth, there was a point between miles 8 and 10 that I thought I'd get my first DNF. I am grateful to have friends who sent me messages and support to remind me that I was capable of finishing. It's not about one race, rather the sum of yours races that creates you experience.

Today I ran my first half marathon since my knee surgeries and coincidentally 4 years today I tore my ACL and meniscus! My surgeon said I probably wouldn't be able to distance run anymore, but I'm proving him wrong one marathon at a time! #carlsbadhalfmarathon down, two more to go to earn that triple crown! 🏃🏽‍♀️👑❤️

I am so proud of myself for accomplishing one of my long term goals! It wasn't perfect, and I cramped really badly about halfway through, but I crossed the finish line. #triplecrownbound2017 #onedowntwotogo #carlsbadhalfmarathon #runsandiego #carlsbad

Instead of the Houston 1/2 marathon I ran the San Diego 1/6th marathon this morning. Slightly better views than Allen Parkway. #runsandiego

To be honest, I've been slacking on my workouts this week. Skipped a day (or 2) and made them up the following day. It's tough getting back into a daily/weekly routine when I have a serious case of the "lazies!" Today, I had 20 minutes to spare so I went for a run at the lake. It was a nice change up from the treadmills I've been running on lately because of the drizzling weather. It was super sunny out this afternoon with a cool breeze, beautiful view, and the refreshing air just got me jetting off. At the end of it, I didn't feel like I was dying in exhaustion but did try to push myself to make it back on time. I normally average 10 minute miles and am happy to even settle for that. Today, when I finished and viewed my final average, it was only 9 minutes! 🙀😬😏🤑I realized that progress is obtainable. Maybe my few runs lately already increased my endurance and quicken my pacing. Maybe running outdoors along other random people pushed me to run faster. Maybe this shit ain't all that bad and instead of dreading my exercises, I should "shut up and just workout" because the aftermath always feels like gold! Can't wait to push myself to be more consistent next week, so that I not only have to do double the work the next day, but to also endure all of those endorphin-filled goodvibes that I felt today after my glorious run. 👅👍🏃‍♀️#thefeels #golddigger #shutupandrun #runhappy #runnershigh #runtastic #runsd #runsandiego #100happyFITdaysWonTon #100happyday6
