Stronger Strength Training Playlist

Need to mix up your strength training routine? The next time you are working on your arms, pushing those legs or strengthening your core ... push yourself to my Stronger Strength training playlist.



     

Replacing your running shoes

Ever wondered how often you should be replacing your running shoes?  This is a general guide to figure out when it's time for a new pair - based on your mileage. Always consult a professional at your local running store and listen to your body to prevent injury. The general rule is to replace your running shoes every 300-600 miles. Walking and running mileage both count towards wear.



Hey moms, you are worth it!!



Did you set a crazy goal after the new year ... think you can't achieve it? 
Did you register for a race that scared you ... are you still scared?
Think you're too busy with everyone else's commitments ... that there's no time left for you?


I'm here to show you that your goals are possible. Your dreams can be a reality - and will be. And that you are worth it. The time is there, you just have to find it.


I'm a busy mom of three with two day jobs, a thriving coaching business, three busy kids (ranging from 2-14 yrs) and an understanding spouse who supports it all. I am not a natural-born runner, but have completed more than 60 half marathons & 14 marathons in the past decade. I love showing other women that they are capable of anything and motivating them throughout their journey.


If you're in need of a custom training program - running, walking or for that scary first marathon - I'd love to work together to develop a schedule that will work with your family's schedule. I will also check in with you weekly for the duration of your program.
Message me or comment below to get started.

Girl, Wash Your Face | Book Review

If you are looking for some motivation during the dreary month of February, "Girl, Wash Your Face" gave me a kick in the butt.  Rachel Hollis is the lifestyle author at The Chic Site and I've been identifying with her words for the past couple of weeks. I received an advance review copy of her new book and .... it rocks, people! I eagerly flipped through page after page until this mama was up way too late past her bedtime.

Girl, Wash Your Face by Rachel Hollis
In each chapter Hollis reveals a lie she once believed about herself. Self-doubts as a mother, wife, friend ... woman. She shares the deepest stories of struggle and triumph and then reveals her tips that helped her overcome those feelings about herself.  I laughed and I even cried a little bit as I read her raw emotions on paper.

I identified with her as a busy mompreneur and long-distance runner who is constantly learning about herself, how to push boundaries and how to "do it all" while making your family, your spouse .... and yourself happy in the process.  I loved this book and already know who I'm sharing my copy with.

Whether you are struggling with finding a fitness routine, finding balance or finding yourself ... you will enjoy "Girl, Wash Your Face". Rachel has shared her gifts of honesty, humor and motivation all in one book. Go enjoy it ...

Not talented; just tough.

I came across this quote (from Gymaholic) recently and I can't stop thinking about it. I really identify with it.

Quote: Gymaholic

Like many of us, I hated running the mile in gym class. I thought it was because I wasn't a "runner" or an athlete. I told myself that it was too hard and it must be easier for everyone else. That little girl just didn't know how to push herself outside of her comfort zone. I was too shy to try out for extra-curricular activities, until my parents nudged me along to do so. Even then I only went through the motions and never really put in the effort. I am not a naturally-gifted athlete. I didn't like playing basketball in junior high school. My stomach turned as I was in line to bat in gym class. I was awkward on the tumbling mat. I was not coordinated enough to hit a tennis ball. I was not driven enough to chase a soccer ball down the field either. 

As an adult, I've learned a lot about myself.  I was right ... I am NOT a naturally-talented runner. I'm not a gifted athlete. The awkwardness and the fight are what make the journey so rewarding for me. I work hard at it every day. I show up. I push. I struggle. I improve. I see results.

I put in the work.  I do what I ask of myself. I can do "hard stuff".

Life has thrown me several curve balls over the past decade -- in and out of my running shoes. I've struggled, I've learned, I've grown. But I never gave up. Running has proved to me that I am stronger than any obstacle that stands in my way. I don't have to better than anyone else. I don't have to be faster than the girl next to me at the gym. I don't have to outrun everyone else on the trail. I'm competing with myself and the obstacles that stand in my way.

I'm not talented. I'm tough.

2017 Mileage

So ... I ran a total of 1,550 miles in 2017. This was my highest mileage year ... ever (in twelve years) ... despite being forced to rest for seven weeks this fall. I use to feel really accomplished if I reached 100 miles in a month, maybe closer to 130 with good weather and an open schedule. But I hovered around or above 150 miles during many months this past year. I'm proud of all I accomplished and learned. I had a good pace (pun intended!) up until the point of my injury mid-October. I coached ... a lot. I ran about 5-6 days a week, sometimes 2-3 times a day with clients. I ran 2-3 hours most days, but only got in 4-6 miles during that time. Running was different for me last year. Mileage by myself was limited, except for a long run approximately once a month and some low miles with the stroller.

I am thankful for 2017 and for all who joined me during some of my 1,550 miles. Thank you for joining me and for allowing me to be a part of your journey.

Congratulations to Darcey B, who won a free entry into the January Women Working on Wellness Accountability group, by guessing 1,500. You all set the bar REALLY high with your guesses at my mileage!

February - 127
March - 143
April - 174
May - 178

Neighbor // Client // Friend

These flowers arrived on my doorstep this morning while I was busy vacuuming and folding laundry. They were from a client that I crossed paths with one year ago.  One year ago this week. 



She had been my neighbor for several years. But we only crossed paths when out walking with our dogs or chasing kids around the neighborhood. When I opened up my studio last fall she reached out to me to start running and walking together. 

She’s a mother of four and homeschools her kids and early mornings worked best for her.  We would typically run together once a week at 5:30 am and this continued as the months passed by. We started with one minute intervals and continued on that path throughout much of the winter.  Occasionally we would add in longer periods of running at the end of her workout.

She wasn’t interested in running outdoors or having anyone at the gym see her running (Can anyone relate?). But, once spring hit, I encouraged her that she should be proud of what she was doing – so we ventured outside.  We ran around our neighborhood and soon I was showing her our city in a different way – on foot at various parks and trails. I could tell that something was changing her. She wasn’t dreading her workouts or asking for breaks. She was craving the workout – and the time for herself.  It wasn’t so much of a chore anymore. I would see her out running when I was out with my family and it made me so happy.  Others in the neighborhood noticed her lifestyle change, too.

During the time we got to know each other, she went through a difficult international adoption process. This involved her husband traveling for several weeks throughout the year. When early mornings didn’t work, we would run together with our toddlers in the strollers. She still made herself a priority.


During the adoption process, she also learned that she would need to have surgery. We met immediately before surgery and immediately after she was given the ok to return to exercise. She continued to keep her routine throughout all of this.

After these two situations were finalized and family routine was setting in, I saw another breakthrough. She was pushing herself longer distances. Going to the gym and running on her own. She was really becoming proud of what SHE was doing. And she craved more. 

She asked me to schedule a 10K together on the week of our one year anniversary – of our first running date. Since I was sidelined with injury, we met at the gym at 5:15 am this morning and she ran alongside me while I walked.  We outlasted everyone at the gym.  She did that.  The treadmill stopped because she hit the time limit and she had to switch machines.  She did that. I saw another breakthrough this morning.  Tears welling up around mile 5.5 and then more emotions as she approached mile 6. She realized that she could do that.  She did that.  Doubt was gone. And she is capable of even more.  Because she chose to make herself a priority – and feel good about herself again.

I’m so happy that this neighbor became a client and then a close friend. Over the past year we have run together about sixty times. That’s a lot of miles and catching up and sharing.

When you think you don’t have enough time. Don’t have the energy. Don’t have the support. Think again.  It’s there – you just need to find it and commit. You have it! Look around. Support is all around you.  It could be right next door. But you won’t know if you don’t look.
