“If it doesn’t challenge you, it won’t change you”
What’s your goal? And I’m not talking about your “maybe I’ll reach it someday but probably not” or the “this is obtainable in a week” goal. What is it that you want to do, that scares you to try, but you are willing to give it your all, regardless of if you fail? This is me chasing my big goal of completing a 5k in under 30 minutes. My current time sits at 30:55 and I know, without a doubt, that I will accomplish this goal, regardless of how many more times I try. Each time I come a little bit closer and every race I attempt to reach my goal and fall short is not a failed attempt. It’s a step in the direction of reaching my long time goal. This is what real transformation looks like. 📍Kirkland, Washington 🌎 (📷: @jenne15) Follow @RunningFervor for more.

Never judge a run by the first few miles!

On fait pas Paris Versailles nous?! Y’a R !
Qui m’a encore embarquée dans cette histoire de course de 16KM D+300 à 9h du mat ?! Je vous le donne en 1000 mon photographe attitré @guiyomparis que j’ai vraiment maudit sur le chemin (mais je t’aime quand même !) Pas d’entraînements = souffrance en côtes mais je suis quand même fière d’avoir sortie un 1h24’ pour la première course officielle depuis mes blessures 🙏🔥 Merci à l’équipe du cheer @asicsfrontrunner et @smsb_paris pour votre soutien 💛Vous avez clairement relancé ma course !
Merci à @guylain_m_run de m’avoir tiré sur 5KM et à ma Partner in crime de m’avoir soutenu dans cette fucking côte des gardes #lesvraissavent@carlasics 😍
Félicitations à tous les runners! Balancez vos PB !! 💪🏻💦
I run for many reasons:⠀
2️⃣8️⃣. Because running makes my soul happy 💜💫🙌!⠀
Känslan är allt. Prestationen är inte längre i fokus för mig Det har det varit. Även jag har jagat minutrar eller snarare sekundrar och hundradelar. Och jag förstår alla er som vill förbättra, klara nytt PB och bryta gränser.⠀
Visst vill jag fortfarande springa ”snabbt”, men det är inte längre en specifik fart. Det är mer en känsla. En känsla av flyt, medvind, nerförsbacke, flow, evinnerlighet, styrka, power, lätthet, spänst och ett lätt bränn i bröstet. Lite motstånd som jag måste igenom för att komma in i andra andningen.⠀
Väl där kommer känslan som höjer mig, lyfter mig, puffar mig och får mig att njuta fullt ut. Själen som skrattar, hjärtat som dansar, blodet som susar i artärerna och fötterna som springer av sig själv. Glädjedans. Löplycka. Frihet. Tidlöshet. Magi. Glitter. Passion. Running makes my soul happy 💫💫!⠀
“What we see depends mainly on what we look for.” 🌞🦋☘️🌺🌝✨💚💖💜 Sometimes the best thing you can do is not think, not obsess. Just breathe, and have faith that everything will work out for the best... 💫🙏🏼☮️🌈💙
Finding that “little ray of sunshine on a cloudy day!” My run was pretty on and off and speeds were pretty sporadic and labored in some kilometers! But I did manage to top off the exercise with some pushups and pull-ups at the domain.
Let’s play a game: If you were a shoe what would you be and why!? 👞👟👠👡👢
I would be be a worn in pair of nikes because they are practical and comfy! #truth As much as a hot pair of red stilettos would be fun, it’s just not me.
What would you be!? #nikesalldayeveryday#letsplayagame#justforfun

The place, this new hotel, has the aura and scent of where my mother lived in her last years. Where I took care of her, where her final conscious moments were. I resented being here; the furniture, the overly dim lights...Really, the space is not bad at all, and both TV's are larger and newer than my own so that's good right? I just didn't want the memory. Not here, not in this quiet.
Skip the run I thought sitting on the couch, it's getting dark. Dinner and a beer, maybe two will blur the thoughts? .
On with the Hokas and out through the decrepit parking lot passing the hole-in-the wall golf bar that was more reminiscent of something on a forgotten highway in Mexico. .
The stripes of freedom along the river lifted me. One curling and sweeping along its shore where the pelotons surged with haste. Another up above on its plateau, perhaps 50ft higher, straight, paved, with a long gradual arc that offered safety to the unsure. And in between, the gravel road that graded up and down with the swells of the landscape.
That was the right thing to do. Now the blood moves, the hormones spin their magic, and the memories go back farther, passed the pain. I will smile a few times this evening thinking of her. And yes, I believe the beers are still in order. .
Well, I had planned on a recovery run today, but it definitely wasn’t an easy one! I’m in Auburn taking care of my 3 nieces and nephew this week (all under 8!) I brought my oldest teen to help out because well, 4 kids under 8 . . . •
Today I headed out with the baby and the jogger stroller and got a harder run than I had anticipated due to:
▪️90 degree weather
▪️All huge hills around the neighborhood- 800 feet of climbing on this run 😧
▪️A flat tire on the front (that I didn’t discover until about a mile in •
But, the bambino loved it- he was babbling the whole time! I dropped him off after 4.25. Then, I headed back out for 3.75 more after a work call. I’ve gotta tell ya, I haven’t pushed a jogger in about 15 years, my hats go off to you moms that do this all the time- it’s hard!
This bridge is my running training partner 🤣. Great shot of her.

I have an entire album on here that is just called “Words I Love”. I save every single post I come across that gives me a sense of peace, encouragement, empowerment, inspiration or tugs at me in some way. Words are so powerful. Sharing them makes the distance between strangers smaller, vulnerability creates community and connection and honestly, it helps us feel less alone. So, my one for today is “You Are A Match For Your Mountains”. Read and repeat, you never know who could use the reminder ⛰

Fall, one of the best times for running here in Wisconsin. You get the cool, crisp air, mixed with the warm sunshine and it feels magical.
I was not always a runner. In middle school I ran the mile because no one wanted to run that long, and I wanted a place to belong. I "trained" and practiced with my Dad. I was lucky enough to watch him complete the Chicago Marathon.
He taught me a lot.
Then my lack of strength caught up with me and I had awful knee pain, to the point that I had surgery in high school.
So when I look at how I have accomplished 2 half marathons, multiple 5ks without pain is amazing.
I have found an amazing exercise program that has helped my body become stronger than I have ever imagined.
If you're looking to cross train, something new to change up old routines, or maybe to just start to #dosomething I'd be honored to help ya AND if anything, cheer ya on.
Here's to you!
