Waking up this morning, jumping in my car and heading out to complete one of the longest runs I’ve done, I wasn’t exactly 100% excited. Kinda sleepy, pretty cold, and definitely sore. After parking my car and picking a play list I quickly asked myself “what is the other option?”. Yes I could have slept a little more, taken the morning easy, watched some tv and just stayed in. But that would not improve my running and that would not keep my dreams alive. I am new to the running thing but the goals I have set are what’s keeping me happy. I’d rather suffer a little bit and be chasing after something everyday, than enjoying my hot coffee and comfy couch. I got to doing my run, I completed it, and I’ll do it all again tomorrow. 👟👟 #morningmiles#RunHappy

I am still fighting a nice chest cold-just some chest tightness and a mild cough but I actually feel ok. so I just kept it a little slower so I could get my miles in and not be wiped out.
And it felt good to get some fresh air and get rained on for the beginning part of this run.
I know some runners focus on miles, + I do too if I'm training. 🏃♀️ But there's something so enjoyable about simply getting outside, pushing my pace + observing nature all around. 🍃 .
Finding how we enjoy moving is so important to our health. 🙏 You can force yourself to workout but if you hate it, it may not be sustainable. With all the options we have at our fingertips these days we are sure to find some way of moving our bodies that we can enjoy! .
K&K adventures continue👯♀️☺️ Love this girl💜 Today felt sooo good!! It was literally the most effortless run and weather couldn’t have been more perfect. Threw in a few strides at the end.
✨Listened to @rambling_runner ‘s episode with @ryanhall3 yesterday and I literally can not wait to read his book!! It’s about running the mile you’re in and finding God in every step!!!🙌🏻 AMEN!
My Thursday “8 before 6” runs are quickly becoming my favorite. ⭐️🌙 Sure, it’s tough waking up at 4:15—and keeping my eyes open through the workday!—but I love getting the miles knocked out nice and early, and I love doing it with a group of strong, supportive women. 👯♀️ Running has been going pretty well, but kinda feels like everything else is falling apart. Glad I’ve got a good crew to help me stay sane. ☺️ Also, spring has officially sprung, so seeking out the beautiful parts of life feels a little easier. 🌷

5 rainy miles this morning. I won’t lie it took me a bit to get out of my car to run in the rain but once I started I remembered how relaxing it really is.
Looks like I’ll be having a few more rainy runs this coming week if I want to hit 100 miles for April. I have about 28 miles to go👍🏽
Happy Thursday! 🏃🏽♀️
That feeling you get when you knock out 5 miles before work!

Reason number 152 why I love running early in the morning. The sunrise this am was amazing and even reflected off the western cloudy sky which made a ring of color.
The run this morning felt great too. Ran with the #530fanatics crew and pace with @sclay49. With a half mile to go we both said we were trying to keep up with eachother for the whole run!! It made for a good strong run and we felt great at the end. Now it's time for coffee and a stretch.
