Let's talk about determination and not giving up! I encourage all of you to chase down what you want and don't stop till you get it! I may look happy in this picture but I was actually pretty disappointed. ---------------------- Marine corps marathon was my 2nd marathon, a year after my first. I knew I had trained really hard and was hitting good paces in all my workouts. Openly I said my goal was just to PR (marathon 1 was 3:51) but my secret internal goal was to BQ 🦄 Race day came and I went out blazing. I meant just to hit 8:00/mi but got caught up and ran a few sub 8:00s in the beginning. I fell off the pace at mile 18 and stumbled across the finish in 3:41 - a 10 minute PR. ------------------------------------------ I had such a mix of emotions when I finished - I was of course happy, a 10 min PR isn't too shabby at all, but in my heart, I KNEW I could have hit my crazy ambitious goal, so I was disappointed. ----------------------------------------- What did I do? I celebrated the accomplishment of finishing MCM but the next day I registered for another local small marathon that took place 5 weeks later. I kept training. I kept going. I didn't give up. I ran that second fall marathon and I made sure not to go out too fast, I made sure to hit those splits, and sure enough I crossed that finish line in 3:31:08. I knew I could do it and I did. My friends thought I was crazy signing up for another race, but craziness and determination paid off and hopefully I'll get to participate in Boston 2019 💙💛 . . . . . . . #marathon #marathontraining #halfmarathontraining #halfmarathon #runstagram #instarun #run #distancerunning #runnersofinstagram #runner #runnergirl #womensrunningcommunity #runlikeagirl #fitness

#clientspotlight -- Stephanie shares her favorite tips to fuel for long distance running and half marathon training. - "My favorite things that help me best prepare for an upcoming race, trim down, and speed up include eating healthy well-balanced meals (thank you @simplyfitmeals for making this SO easy) and @advocare Spark to give me the energy to manage working, studenting, wifing and running. This dynamic duo with my @dallas_iron_fitness workouts led me to a PR half marathon in October and hopefully another one next month! 🏃🏻‍♀️" - #training #advocare #onlineprogramming #simplyfitmeals #crosstraining #distancerunning #swipeleft

Disney Princess weekend is upon us!!! Flash back to last years Disney princess half! 2nd overall 1:24:53... This year will be one of the warmest to date, I guess it’s a good thing I live in Florida!! Lol. Trying to go into this with no expectations and enjoy the experience. Thousands of women, and 13.1 miles, can’t get much better than that, right?! Lol 😂 👸🏼🏃🏼‍♀️💫 • • • #rundisney #disneyprincesshalf #disneyworld #teamrundisney #halfmarathon #wdw #newtonrunning #zensah #xendurance #tifosioptics #rollrecovery #trackshack #nuun #kttape #floridarunner #picklejuicesport #runhappy #runitfast #instarunners #igrunner

Holy hell...not even that fast but I'm shot after my run yesterday...10mph winds, sore/tired legs, and a knee bothering me...probably not a great idea but hey what the hell. #nike #nikerunning #NRC #arewerunningtoday #distancerunning #speedkills #earnit #nothingisgiven @nike @nikerunning @kevinhart4real

Pour une fois, j'ai réalisé quelques accélérations en milieu urbain ce soir. Le froid est de plus en plus sensible (3°C, 💨 21kmh N) mais la séance ne fut pas désagréable. Néanmoins, je suis content de ne pas avoir poussé la machine car l'air froid n'est pas bon pour les poumons (tout comme la pollution...) . . . For the first time, I made some accelerations in urban area tonight. The weather is colder (3°C, 💨 21kmh N) but the run wasn't bad. However, I'm happy not having gone in the red zone because the cold air isn't good for the lungs (as the pollution) #courseapied #coureur #course #courir #running #run #runner #fitness #hardloop #hardloper #hardlopen #grandheadbands #denvertrackclub #loopmaatjes #nevernotrunning #prorunnl #urbanrunnersnl #rotterdamrunningrebels #distancerunning #stravarun #stravashares #runningcommunity #laufen #laufer #fartlek #runinparis #couriraparis
