Winter morning in Melbourne...I will take it ☀️☀️☀️☀️Darebin Trail from home to City...now to turn around and tick off this 4 hour run #running #runnersofinstagram #trailrunning #melbournerunning #melbourne #over40andfit #discoveryourawesome

After 11 1/2 hours of sleep last night; I got out the door a little later than I hoped. After a tough week; I definitely needed the rest. 😴 By the time I headed out it was already 81 degrees, 71% humidity & very sticky! Hubby and I decided to hit the trails. One mile in my run a saw a deer running toward me. I quickly stopped & paused my watch so I wouldn't startle it. I saw bikers coming behind it, it then jumped into the canal. I thought, "omg, oh no - can it swim?" I was amazed to see it swim across. Only it jumped out of the water & darted across the road. Shortly, after a few pheasant were crossing the trail, I went around to run by & the mama pheasant hissed at me. 🙆 I looped around at the halfway point and as I ran back - the rain started. 11 miles complete - 1:30:08 - 8:11/mile ( 8:30, 8:24, 8:25, 8:17, 8:18, 8:14, 8:10, 8:10, 8:10, 8:02 and 7:24)! 5 miles for my hubby @damianrec.

I ran little on ten miles for the relay for life yesterday it’s to raise money for cancer research I was on my feet for about 20 miles yesterday 😵🤕 #iam1stphorm #1stphorm

Today’s the anniversary of my right foot surgery and subsequent “Scooter Summer.” Ran a slower than usual practice 5k this afternoon, but was just happy to be running again today. (H/t again to Randy Garcia for one of my favorite pictures ever!) • • • • • #jerseycity #jcmakeityours #running #hoboken #runnersofinstagram #runstagram

You know you’re a runner when...it’s rained alllll Saturday but you are pumped because it looks like it will end overnight and it will be a perfect 65 degrees for your 5k start! I love setting all my stuff out the night before. I guess it’s a ritual? It makes me feel more prepared so I can get up and go in the morning without looking around for anything! I’m rocking two @momentumjewelry wraps tomorrow (double wristing if you will) including my favorite race one (BEAST MODE) and RUN happy. It just felt like a good combo since I don’t have any PR expectations and I want to have fun. I’m running for the after party cupcakes and to cheer on my sister and another friend! #keepittight #runnersofinstagram #run #5k #flatrunner #hshive #rungum #sharethespark #motherrunner #instarunners

My mom's birthday was earlier this week, and we didn't get to see her so we drove over today for some time in the pool. . Do you ever have the best intentions - intentions to celebrate someone who is SO worth celebrating - but your fatigue and anxiety kinda take over and you end up needing to be taken care of instead? . This kind of episode has occurred less and less in the last year of healing and growing, but it still happens sometimes. . Wanna know what triggered it today? A parade. A parade in a small town on the way to my mom's house. It added an extra 20 minutes to our route which was already feeling a little too long with my 2 year old and 9 month old taking turns sleeping and then crying. . By the time we got there I was stressed, hungry, and approaching a panic attack. . We ate lunch, let the kids play, and then my mom let me go for a run. Alone. With no rush to get back. . She gave me a break to recenter and regroup. . This has been the most important learning curve for me - learning to accept the gift of help. Learning that it is not a commentary on my strength or lack there of, but a pure gesture of love from the people who know me well. . Can you relate? . What are your methods to recenter, reorient, and readjust so you can function? . We have to take the time to know the answers to these questions. Receiving help and having coping mechanisms doesn't make us weak, it makes us strong. . This is how we push for joy. . Just a reminder that you are not alone if you have bad spells every once in awhile (or on a regular basis). You are not alone if something stupid and seemingly minor causes you to feel like crumbling. You are not alone. Period. . 💕 . . . . . #anxietysucks #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthblogger #anxietyrelief #momswithanxiety #myhappynow #myunfilteredlife #progressnotperfection #babysteps #fitmoms #runningmoms #runnersofinstagram #projectblessed #encouragementgallery #hopewriters #hopewriter #shewriteshope #beachbodycoach #berealwithme #bereal #speaklife #socialmediaforgood #pushingintojoy #loveyourself #selfcare #selflove #healingjourney

It took me a couple of days to get on the right track, but something clicked yesterday and I remembered how to do this right. I was reminded of how to make my mindset work in my favor. Principles>Protocols. Always. Now I’m moving...👌🏼👌🏼🤙🏼 #fulldayofeating #eatrealfood #nutrientdensenutrition

Haven’t run in a while but got a good one in today. The cardiovascular was kept in check this week with other things.😉 Happy Saturday! #summerrunning #runnersofinstagram #saturdaynight #runfam #runchat #running #instarunners #fitfam #fitness #fitnessmotivation #workout #weekendhumor #imeantthat #ilovetorun #justdoit #justrun #vacationtime
