Everything you’ve ever wanted is on the other side of FEAR. It’s crossing that bridge into the happiness that exists on the other side that will take a leap of faith. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t scared. Every. Single. Day. How many battles am I willing to fight against the same demons of my past before I realize that I can simply cross the bridge and leave them behind?
Take the power away from your fears. Just walk away and leave them behind. If you were strong enough to face it once, know that you are strong enough to face it again. No good will come of continuously fighting the battles of your past in your mind and your heart.
Take a leap of faith. Cross the bridge.

Boston Marathon 2019: not the day I imagined in terms of speed, but wonderful every mile. The day after this race I was looking at registering for another marathon to chase down my dream finishing time. I thought my training was solid and pointed me towards a hefty PR. After asking more experienced marathoners how to do this, I decided it wasn’t a good idea for me. I’m 44, and for the last 2 summers I’ve had lower leg injuries (probably overuse), and couldn’t run for most of July. Which was terrible for me, a teacher on summer break. I’m now gently training (with awesome guidance from @anna_weber413) for a fall marathon, and one of my main goals is to NOT be injured all summer. With help from a coach I’m actually running fewer miles, but more specific training. Marathon runners have to be patient: those finish lines only happen a few times each year, and to catch your dream experience (whether a time or effort level or something else), so many thing have to fall into place. Can’t wait to race again, when the time is right. #oisellevolée#bostonmarathon2019#fasterasamaster

I met over 50 superstars, fans, and friends that afternoon. Some I had known for years, others had been silently following me. Many of the runners I met thanked me for talking to them, but I just wanna say to them (and there are just a small handful of pictures here), THANK YOU for making me feel ALIVE, for giving me a purpose and meaning to what I do. You may think I help you, but you have NO IDEA how much you help me too!
Some faces you may recognize, like the lady who literally changed my whole world when she finally made me see how I was eating (Nancy Clark), the wonderful Nate Helming of @therunexperience and his team, who I have known for YEARS, my friend @fitzgerald.matt who hand delivered his new book, and the lovely @bhumika.patel1 who has been a guest on my podcast (such an inspiration!). Bhumika even brought me some goodies from India, how kind.
Hello snow! Felt like Christmas morning when I woke, hubby said look outside 😳❄️ I said I’m running out in that today, ❄️ It surprisingly didn’t feel that bad——————————-————
W01D4A......30 minute recovery run. Did it feel like i did an easy run? Nope! Again Like yesterday this was another cant breath feel exhausted run. What is going on with this body? I don’t feel sick. I’m getting plenty of rest and sleep! I have motivation so I don’t believe I’m exhausted. I literally feel like I’m starting over here. I even took an easier route today (less elevation gain) but I guess it didn’t matter. ——————————————— I have part B of my training run tonight and I’ll be sticking to the TM for this one. Let’s pray it goes better. #nau#runflagstaff#elevationtraining#runaz#runninginthesnow#flagstaff#runlikeagirl#marathontraining#garminfenix5#brooksrunning#adidas#bostonmarathon2019

2019 Boston Marathon 🦄🏃🏾♀️💛💙🏅 I can’t believe it’s already been over a month. 26.2 miles and $7,787 later.
With this being my first marathon, my only goal was to finish. I was determined to embrace the experience without adding pressures of paces or expectations on my performance and I couldn't be more pleased with the result. .
Thank you @susanhurley262 for allowing me to be apart of the @charityteams family and giving me the opportunity to do what some people only dream of doing. It was a huge honor to run and fundraise on behalf of the Boston Public Library (@bplboston)’s first marathon team and I am forever grateful. .
@pioneersrc and @unnamedruncrew no amount of words will ever sum up my feelings of gratitude. I still can’t describe what it felt like to see all of you at mile 20.5 just when I needed it most. Thank you all for your support and helping me get through the journey from the day I found out I had the opportunity to run to the day I crossed the finish line.
Lastly, thank you to EVERYONE who helped make this journey possible and supported my efforts in so many different ways over the past five months. Thanks to you all, not only am I now a marathoner, but I’m a BOSTON marathoner! .
I needed a little break from social media, but I’m looking forward to catching up with everyone, getting back into the swing of things and getting in some fun runs this summer before chasing new goals in the fall. 💙💛
3 more days until I'll complete the set and get my @wmmajors 6 star!! 18 months in, over $30k raised for @firstname.lastname@example.org@yambamalawi and @runforautism - what an incredible ride! And what a pleasure to finish it with my first ever race in my home country, at the @londonmarathon
Truly thank you to everyone that has donated at any point along the way. It means so much to me and to the people it helps.

#transformationtuesday - July 2013 ➡️April 2019
I decided to make a change my senior year in high school which ended up being a decision that has changed my life since.
▪️250 lbs to a 2:45 marathon
▪️Top 1% in Boston Marathon
▪️654 out of 26632
▪️6th overall from Tennessee
I probably couldn't even run a mile back in 2013. The funny thing is, I had no idea how unhealthy I actually was until I started adapting to a better lifestyle.
I remember when I started to lose the weight I would hop on the treadmill and run 1-2 miles at a 11 minute pace per mile. Fast forward to today, I was able to hold a 6:17 pace per mile in Boston.
My main takeaway- put the work in and in time.... progress will come. I'm excited to see where this running journey takes me.
