The chafing will soon fade away. The limping will soon stop. But this one is going to stay around forever ❤️ #bemonumental #medalmonday

Medal Monday🏅 Finally a medal I am proud of. It has been a rough year and half of running and racing both mentally and physically. But Saturday I finally had a race where I was smart and Did Not Quit on myself. I went into this race with 5 micro goals, as @bham_alex_runs called them, and I accomplished all of them and in doing so accomplished the time goal I knew I was able to do. I did not want to make a goal so unachievable that if I wasn’t doing the paces during the race I would give up. During the race I never really looked at my watch, just kept saying make it to the next mile. Then little games, 1 being that if I made it to mile 9 without any walking I would stop for a PBR at @lindseyhein626 table, and i did. But didn’t get a picture but said thank you for the beer and having a few sips was a good reward. Then kept running the mile I was in and kept repeating saying get to next mile. The next Mile 10....was when the wind kicked on. And I still kept running no walking. I told myself there is only 3 miles I can do this, I will do this and the time I decided to walk was after I crossed the finish line. That was a huge goal accomplished for me! So between a successful running weekend, a weekend spent with running girlfriends, meeting up with IG friends, and old friends from Alabama it was a great weekend. This is the Runner I am Today! Onward to the next goals, but first a tiny run break! . . . #medalmonday #bemonumental #oisellevolée #mivolée #resoluterunning #headupwingsout #motherrunner #michiganrunner #keepshowingup #inspiringwomenrunners #ihavearunnersbody #irunthisbody

Indy, you didn’t disappoint. I came up a little short of what I was aiming for, but I walked away with a 2+ minute PR and my best marathon yet. I didn’t completely fall apart at the end (as I have my past two marathons) and made it the furthest into a marathon before the tough miles creeped in. All in all, I’m really happy with this one. A huge thank you to my family who made the trip down to Indy and stood in the cold to cheer ❤️ Another thank you to my coach, @itsheathersturn, for getting me in the best shape I’ve been in for this race. And for the huge hug at the finish line. You have no idea how much I needed that at that moment. Another thank you to everyone who cheered along the course. Whether I knew you or now, hearing my name gave me so much motivation. And thank you to everyone here who has supported me along this journey so far and for all the messages the past few days. You are amazing. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. And one last thank you to @s_schaeffler223 for capturing this picture because I’m actually smiling in the last mile of a marathon!!! (And you can see the marathon hurt that ensued right towards the end when someone shouted that the finish was right around the corner, only to find out I still had a ways to go when I rounded that corner... my family saw that pain in the last picture 😂😂) #bemonumental #mckirdytrained

Why not go for the turkey? First turkey trot of the season in the books. I think that was a course PR...anyway good enough for second overall female & first in AG! Wasn’t sure what my body had in it today. Still battling major sinus pressure along with major muscle soreness from Pilates & Pumped this week. #mivolée #oisellevolée #michiganrunner #alltheturkeytrots #trailbird

Happy to be home! I traveled for work this week and I also had a cold so I didn’t take my stuff with me to workout at the hotel gym. Feeling better now and today was the first leg day 🦵🏼in a very long time. Hopefully I will be able to walk tomorrow and run on Sunday! #runner #fitmom #homeworkout #legday #workout #oisellevolée #mivolée #homegym #home

The bag is packed and “the hay is in the barn” next step get to Indy and celebrate this training season with 13.1 miles! . I’m as ready as much as possible for the runner I am now! Not the runner I was or ‘wish’ to be. This type of mindset is hard but I’m now in a place to be comfortable with the runner I am right now. I’m excited to see what happens on the roads of Indy. Do I have time goals sure, but my other goals of finishing strong and not quitting on myself are way larger then any time on the clock this weekend. Special thanks goes @bham_alex_runs & @resolute_running for getting me to the starting line tomorrow. After a rough year last year I wasn’t sure about a coach, and I did some self coaching for the beginning of this year. But I’m glad that we reconnected and his guidance has helped restore some confidence I had lost, and hope to continue to grow that. . Time to go have fun on the roads and then afterwards with many runner friends from far and near! . . . #oisellevolée #mivolée #michignrunner #resoluterunning #headupwingsout #brooksrunning #bemonumental #motherrunner #halfmarathon #keepshowingup #LFG #gazellesports #werunsocial #womensrunningcommunity

I was given the 👍 to run after 4 days of being benched. I'm so fortunate to work with an amazing coach and friend. @thedynamicrunner listens to me 👂 knows my goals 🏃‍♀️💙💛 adjusts the workout to fit my life and potential injuries. She even puts #humptydumpty back together again 😜 Today I also got a "tune up" from my PT (the amazing Kelly DeLind) who also puts Humpty back together again 🤦😂 #headupwingsout #indymonumental #physicaltherapy #oisellevolée #gprunners #mivolée @mi_volee @myformpt

If today’s session was any indication of this weekend’s race, then these legs are ready to go. 2 mile warm up, 6x 3 minutes @ threshold w/ 3 min recovery, 2 mile cool down I felt like I was holding back the entire time. I’m ready for this one. . I’m thankful for a healthy buildup this cycle and for the ability to run my third marathon this Saturday. Let’s lay it all out there.

Last long run 🏃🏻‍♀️ before @indymonumental half next weekend. @s_schaeffler223 and I took on the #hotciderhustle 15k as a slowish training run. We had fun, froze 🥶our tails off, and realized our pace for Indy may be faster then we originally expected 🤷🏻‍♀️ Going into next weekend with zero expectations. Excited to ROAD TRIP! And to spend time with all the Michigan runners invading Indianapolis! #oisellevolée #mivolée

Happy November! Well, it is time to take out the winter running gear. This morning's run was chilly and windy but the trees are just so beautiful. I am soaking it all up because I know it won't last much longer. It also felt good just to breathe in the fresh air.

First run since my marathon! I was supposed to have already ran this week but apparently my “yoga” class kicked my ass on Sunday 🤣 I was soooo sore the past two days that I chose extra sleep and rest instead.

Yep that’s me shower cap on my head running the Marine Corps Marathon. My hair tangles bad & despite the massive downpours my hair wasn’t too bad. And yep plastic bags over my socks and my feet stayed pretty dry despite running thru ankle deep water. Lots of people had blisters but not me. So not the prettiest picture & I thought about not sharing but heck this was reality this day and I finished and feel great! #mcm #marathoner #rungirlrun #oisellevolée #mivolée

Last big workout... it’s taper time! 🎉 Felt at peace with where I was at with this workout. Didn’t hit all the paces spot on, but came pretty darn close so I’ll take it 🙌🏻 Excited to see what a taper will do for these legs. Definitely excited for what’s to come. . 2 up 2x 2.5 miles threshold w/ 3 min recovery 2 down

I woke up this morning dreading this workout. It's a doozie (2x2 miles @ 7:40)! It gets in my head and just makes it that much tougher. Plus I got some aches and pains I'm working through before @indymonumental I showed up and decided to give it my best. This first set felt pretty good but the second set was HARD! My legs felt heavy and like I just couldn't find that last gear. I pushed, I stayed in the moment, I focused on what working rather than what wasn't. I showed up. #headupwingsout #gprunners #oisellevolée #mivolée #strongwithKara #keepshowingup #dontquit @mi_volee @thedynamicrunner @karagoucher
