Great morning for a @palmettorunningco group run 👏🏻 and it was my first run since coming back from Ohio. . Unfortunately had to return my @hokaoneone Bondi 6’s while I was home for Thanksgiving because they were slightly too narrow and tearing up my feet. But was able to snag a pair of @brooksrunning Ghost 11’s on super sale💃and ran in them for the first time today. I’m really hoping they help with my supination which will maybe help alleviate some of my shin pain🤞🏻

Went swimming for the first time is probably 5-6 years and my only goal was to not drown 😂 It went a lot better than I expected other than getting Charlie horses in my feet the majority of the time 😖 but I was expecting that. Hoping to keep a some what regular swimming routine in 2020. Lets do this thing 🔥

November started out strong with a half marathon and went down hill very fast following. I bit off more than I could chew and suffered for it. Awful shin pain has me babying them and going for very low miles. Really hoping to turn things around in December.

I had to get a run in with @chaseprior.runs before heading back to SC this evening. I may have had trouble breathing the whole time 🙄 But we couldn’t have asked for better December weather.

Signed up for the Granville Turkey Trot last minute and I guess I’ve turned soft since last year because I had a rough time running this morning. My little southern lungs couldn’t handle the 27° Ohio weather and I had a hard time catching my breath 🙄

The weather this weekend has been way too good to not get outside and enjoy it 😍 I hadn’t been on a bike in a hot minute so today called for 20 easy miles on the fixie 🚲

Dipped my toes into some trail running for the @palmettorunningco group run this morning and I only almost tripped and died once 😂 It was my first run in 2 weeks and it was pretty painful. My shins are still super inflamed from all the miles/activity at the beginning of the month so I’ve been trying to take it easy. But that’s easier said than done 😅

Haven’t swam in years and I miss the pool like crazy. Maybe one day I’ll get back into it 🤷🏻‍♀️ #throwbackthursday

Happy Birthday to the big cheese himself... Mickey Mouse 🐭🎂🥳 . Throwback to 2016 when I completed the RunDisney Coast to Coast Race Challenge. The Disneyland Half is by far my favorite race to date. Hoping they bring it back someday! #Medalmonday #Rundisney

Took a boat ride over to Daufuskie Island this morning for a fun group run around the island 🏝 Was really hoping to do the full 13 mile route but my shins were hurting me pretty bad and I had super tight calves from switching to a zero drop shoe that I’m not use to running in. . #DaufuskieIsland

Felt like 37° when I was getting ready for this mornings @palmettorunningco group run and I had no idea how to dress for it 😂 Basically took all of this last week off due to a stupid head cold and/or allergies so I was planning on taking it easy this morning, since I can’t breathe through my nose at the moment, but that didn’t happen 😂 Thanks to @we.are.devo for pushing the pace 💪🏻 she had me MOVING!

It might be ugly but I earned it🏅 #medalmonday

I came, I ran, I PRed by 4 minutes!🏅This was my 5th half and first one in 2 years. After taking nearly all of 2018 off to let my shins recover and for a lower back injury, I didn’t think I’d ever do another. But so thrilled that my body has held up enough to get another in! 🍻

Wasn’t necessarily planning on running today but I couldn’t turn down a group run opportunity. Thanks @ronaldv506 for the invite this morning 👏🏻 So thankful for such an awesome group to run with. Couldn’t have made it through this mornings run without them 😅

Did my second 10K of the year this morning (the first one was an absolute disaster 🙃) It was a lot hotter than I would’ve liked and was on the verge of losing control of my bladder for the majority of the race but I ended up getting a PR (51:07) somehow 🤷🏻‍♀️ And finished it up with a second place overall female win so I’d say I redeemed myself a little bit 😅

Glad I was able to get in a long run with these 2 crazies this morning 🤪 Was planning on only doing 9-10 but ended up with 13 🤷🏻‍♀️ Couldn’t have done it without them pushing me along. . Was also channeling @aldavies6 and @kellainagradams as they run Marathons in Detroit and Columbus today. Sending you girls good vibes ✨ . #churchofthesundaylongrun

Came out with a PR (23:12) at this morning’s 5K 🏃🏻‍♀️🔥 I wasn’t expecting to do very well with it raining but went and snagged 1st Place in my age group as well🥇

October 15, 2017 is the date of the last half I’ve done. From being sick to having a foot injury (basically felt like it was broken) I ran/walked my way to the finish line and got my worst time to date. I may have wanted to quit half way through and felt pretty defeated but hey, I finished. Not every run is going to be your best and this definitely wasn’t mine. Now 2 years later with virtually no training besides consistent running and lifting since January, I made a rash decision and signed up for the Savannah Rock ‘n’ Roll half that’s in a couple weeks 🙃 Here goes nothing 🤷🏻‍♀️

We have finally hit the low 60’s 👏🏻 made for a perfect group run on the island this morning with @palmettorunningco 🏃🏻‍♀️Now hopefully these temps are here to stay.

Today was supposed to be a rest day but I needed to clear my mind after work so I threw on my running stuff as soon as I got home. I was able to get in 3 easy miles before it got too dark. By the time I got outside it had just started to rain 🌧 which made tonight’s run even better. Ended up being a perfect way to end the day 🏃🏻‍♀️

Got a sweaty 🥵 7 miles in this morning with @palmettorunningco Impatiently waiting for the heat and humidity to drop 🙃 . Strava wasn’t connecting on my watch 🙄 and I was dumb and selected “Indoor run” on my Apple Watch workout app 🤦🏻‍♀️
