Your mind is a powerful thing. When you fill it with positive thoughts, your life will start to change.🙇🏼♀️🙇🏼♀️ I’ve started to spend a few moments each morning visualizing. That’s such a woo-woo term, right? Well apparently, it can really make a difference. And it makes sense. It all starts with positive thinking. . This morning I rolled out of bed and my body was ready for a run. I opted out of headphones and took in the world around me. I spent part of my run envisioning reaching goals I’ve set for myself, working with my dream team, and living in my dream house. ❄️❄️ Who knows? Will it actually help? No idea but it’s fun and it feels good. Anyone out there spend a little time visualizing each day??
I get that the online running and fitness community can be a little over the top. Like is this all these ladies do?🏃🏼♀️Am I expected to live life like that? For many of us, that comparison game can get in our heads.🙅🏼♀️ How can we look like all those girls who are kicking ass out there? . Well, you just live YOUR life.👌🏼 The beauty of what I do is that it’s real life. Yeah I’m a coach, a runner and into fitness. It’s my job but it’s not my *entire life.* I’m here making a living, eating good foods and building amazing friendships. But you know what? I’m also a wife, a mama, and just a girl who likes to have fun. This is MY life and I’m enjoying it to the fullest with my little family. 💏👧🏼🤰 . I don’t set crazy expectations for myself. I don’t feel like I need to live up to what *others* expect of me. You guys, don’t let that shit get to you. You DO you. 👉🏼You BE you.👈🏼 Don’t worry about anyone else or what they look like they’re doing. Don’t be intimidated or overloaded by those crazy stigmas. . If you want to live that wholesome lifestyle and see what it feels like to focus on your own health and well-being, I’ll tell you all about it. While you’re working on yourself, you’ll be showing others it’s absolutely possible to live that life you want. 🙆🏼♀️ Let’s show the world what this nitty gritty, awesome lifestyle looks like.
I did it! I may have been undertrained, heavier than I would have liked to be, and completely unaware of what was to come but I finished and was in amazing spirits the ENTIRE race which was a true first for me. . . I had so much fun and felt so much love from others that gratitude and love poured out of me in return. . . I’ll be back for more Mt. Hood 50k and who knows maybe next time it’ll be the 50 miler?!?. . #myjourneyto50k#myfirstultra#ultramarathoner#mthood50k#nurtureyourstory
Knee Knacker 2018. I had to drop my pack before the finish (had my watch in it but I forgot) to lose some weight and get me in on time, so the map and elevation aren't quite complete. Imagine that little line continues to the cove! Took a few snaps in the first half, when I was feeling great and could take a few seconds to capture the epicness. #kneeknacker2018#kneeknacker#myfirstultra
They have prepared for months, with the miles and the speed and the hills and the strength training. They packed and repacked their essentials for race day, making sure nothing was forgotten. They are ready to take on tomorrow's big adventure. Best of luck 🍀 to the Betties running in various trail races around the state, including Beaverhead and McCall 20miler! We'll be cheering for you!! @beaverheadrun #mccalltrailrunningclassic#bettieup#morethanmiles#myfirstultra
