Today is National Rainbow Baby Day! This picture will forever make me smile! We have two rainbow babies, and they truly are such a gift! Both were born almost exactly a year after miscarrying! Both are so amazingly precious, perfect, and loved!! #rainbowbaby #motherrunner #boymom

Faltam 31 dias pra @maratondebuenosaires ... e na verdade estou me preparando desde 2018 pra viver isso ... ...
Decidi esperar tanto assim pois ano passado senti que não era o momento ... meu pai estava muito doente e acabei o perdendo em novembro ...
...
Sou atleta por causa dele ... quem me acompanha sabe disso ... ...
Nesse tempo de treinamento aprendi tantas coisas ...e acredito que cada um que passa por um ciclo pré maratona tire suas próprias lições...
...
Aprendi que com dedicação conseguimos atingir coisas antes inimagináveis ...
Aprendi que tem dias que queremos jogar tudo pra cima ... e tá tudo bem ... ninguém é 100% o tempo todo...
...
Aprendi a conhecer mais meu corpo e respeitá-lo ...
...
Aprendi que a corrida realmente não é um esporte individual ... onde desconhecidos se tornam grandes amigos com apenas um olhar durante uma prova ...
...
Aprendi que assim como tudo na vida temos que ter uma rede de apoio pra chegar onde queremos ...
....
Aprendi que a cabeça é tão ou talvez mais importante que um corpo bem treinado ... ....
Aprendi que não temos controle do que está a nossa volta , mas temos controle de nós mesmos ...
...
Tive a certeza que o esporte é mágico ... transforma ... revitaliza ... nos mostra o quanto somos fortes pra conquistar qualquer coisa que queremos na vida ...
...
São mais de 35 anos no esporte ... e que assim continue 🙏❤
...
Como disse hoje ... já valeu a pena ... SEMPRE vale a pena ...
...
Obrigada a todos que estão comigo nessa jornada 👊🥰

Before and after tonight's run


1

May not be my fastest #halfmarathon on sept 1 but well I’m running the damn thing after a 6 year hiatus during and post pregnancy, si joint dysfunction and pelvis misalignment. (Good thing she’s cute!!). Here’s to my last long training run. And, some reflections during my 2 hours alone—we, (woman especially) are so caught up in what the heck is beauty and the idealistic self. It’s annoying. Be you and being the best you, is enough. Period. You don’t need the perfect shape, weight, anti-wrinkle cream or what not. Just be healthy and your best self will be. Today I am thankful for my daughter, my family, my house, 2 doggie kiddos, relationships that matter, friends that I call sisters (or auntie), my career with a group of amazing partners which allows me a perfect life-work balance despite those 7 days on :), and the fact that I’m 40! Yes fricken 40! Stronger than I ever have been, still running half marathons, still the same size as when I graduated high school (minus boob—wtf!?! But w a better abs, haha), and yoga has become my passion for life pushing me further with every practice 💙💚💛🧡❤️💜🖤. I have an amazing life here in the #pnw and even when I’m down, I have so much to reflect back on. It’s never really that bad. Xoxo

So what does running look like for me these days? Ughhhhhhhhh. 🙄

I am still doing it, consistently at that, though my fitness has evolved a bit. This time last year, my workouts were primarily run based and it was a mix of hill, speed, long run. Wash, rinse and repeat. I was seeing organic increases in speed and I was excited for progress. Then in November I was slammed with all the -itis. I slowed down, but I didn’t want to hear that it could take a year or more to recover.
So fast forward to today, I am spinning, rowing and running. I am dang near an indoor triathlete 😂 I am stronger and more well rounded but I still struggle with the loss of soooo much speed. Tempo paces of a year ago are all out sprints, but I am still running.
I am signed up for a 10 mile hilly race in the end of October so training is about to get more real. Let’s see where my body will take me. 😌🏃‍♀️

You can have your dream career, be thriving financially, build your dream home, have all the things, have a rock-solid circle of friends, and still feel “not enough.”
.
Some days I still have to dig deep and fight 𝗛𝗔𝗥𝗗
To love myself
To stop comparing
To remind myself that I’m a great mom
To embrace the season our family is in
To clearly see the blessings
To celebrate the small & big wins
To have peace
To connect with God
.
Those days are when your strength and resilience become even more evident. Those days reveal how far you’ve already come. We need tough days to remind ourselves what we were made of.
.
Those days I make sure to wake up and show up even when I don’t feel like it at first. Sometimes all it takes is a gentle yoga practice to remember to breathe. 🧘🏻‍♀️
.
Here is a reminder for you: 𝗬𝗼𝘂 𝗮𝗿𝗲 𝗲𝗻𝗼𝘂𝗴𝗵 𝗷𝘂𝘀𝘁 𝗮𝘀 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝗮𝗿𝗲. And every time you remind yourself of that, practicing self-love will become easier.
.
Did you practice self-care today? 💗

DOEU. Me desmontei. E mesmo sabendo que eu PRECISAVA mudar, cada coisa que eu mudava doía. NÃO FOI FÁCIL. Eu precisei ACREDITAR em mim, quando ninguém acreditava.
.
O início foi um dos piores momentos... era difícil para os de fora acreditarem na MUDANÇA que eu me propus a fazer! A todo tempo me eram orfertadas as coisas das quais eu estava e precisava ABDICAR! Doía dizer NÃO quando meu corpo estava berrando pelo SIM. Por isso, se você quer mudar, prepare-se para a GUERRA! Não com o mundo, mas COM VOCÊ mesmo! E tenha “em mãos” as melhores armas: SEU PROPÓSITO! E ele deve ser BOM, deve ser FORTE, deve ser algo que você sabe que te segurará e te erguerá quando você tombar! Eu tinha e tenho o MEU! Ah, e não use nada nem ninguém como ÂNCORA! A BATALHA É SUA e ninguém é obrigado a vive-la com você! Quer mudar? MUDE! Não doutrine ninguém, não encha o saco de ninguém... não fale, MOSTRE! .
.
Doeu, foi TRANSFORMADOR, tanto externa quanto internamente, mas você tem alguma dúvida de que valeu a pena? VALEU cada lágrima e cada não! E vejo o quão importante foi cada um deles. Hoje são mais sorrisos, os “nãos” não doem mais, mais VIDA, mais do que me faz bem... mais EU! .

The weeks are coming round so quickly at the moment it's hard to keep up. I am still missing too many run which I'm finding really difficult to deal with. I feel a acutely aware of not being back to the fitness I was, let alone where I need to be to be able to run the GSR in less than 9 weeks time. I'm definitely finding it challenging to manage my anxiety and not let it affect my mindset.

Happy Almost Friday!

Who says you can’t run with your girlfriend miles (and I mean miles like states) away! It made my day to receive a medal from her!!! Sole sisters!! Thanks @onepeloton for a tread (and bike) that you can run and ride with your friends!.

Thank you, Omaha, for ensuring my hotel room smelled like the high school football locker room. 😜
.

98% humidity for 3 days in a row means...well, a lot of sweat. Fortunately each day has been a little cooler than the last. Tuesday, the heat index topped out at 111° with the humidity. .

First track/speed workout in 4 weeks. We kept my 90 second interval paces at a medium intensity level while I’m working to get my iron levels up after finding out my ferritin was low. and I gotta tell ya...I love only “kind of hard”! .

2 mile warm up
12x90 sec @ 6:50s-7:30s
2:00 recovery
2 mile cool down

6 backintervaller i regnet, låt bilden tala för sig själv...

Another day another HIIT!
Decided to look up another video to change things up a bit and found @chloe_t
The video I followed was INTENSE with a lot of 5 second breaks, but I liked it. This week off of running to cross train has been really helpful with both my knee (it hasn’t clicked on the stairs since yeaterday!) and my attitude towards working out. It pays to shake things up a bit!

Running on fumes this week; baby hasn't been sleeping well & yet somehow I haven't missed a run this week.👌 Coming back up on 100 mile month starting soon! I am honestly shocked at how much I LOVE the training process.. probably because it is one part of my life that I can actually (most of the time) control 🤣🤷 & where I can be the most disciplined!

Here's to rolling at work; if I have it with me I have ZERO excuse not to!
Happy ALMOST Friday! XOXO

#tbt ⚠️textão: Dedicado a mim mesma😁💁🏼‍♀️! Quando eu recebo uma notícia desanimadora, rola um “D.R.” meu comigo mesma! Vou dividir um pouco com vocês:
Algumas pessoas sabem ou supõem, outras não querem saber, aí é melhor nem ler,😂!
Eu enfrento 1 Leão, 1 Dragão, 40 Dinossauros dentro de casa mesmo. Pela sala, quarto, ás vezes até piso em cima de um😂, para correr, muscular, alongar, ser mãe/esposa/enfermeira... Conciliar tudo!
Não é vitimização, ok? Aliás, não suporto isso!
Mas as vezes penso em JOGAR A TOALHA!
Penso sim, não nego. Em desistir, adiar o sonho da Maratona (mais uma vez) penso até em parar de correr!
Um duelo interno INFERNAL. Me pergunto: Pra que? Eu posso ser como a maioria das mulheres ao meu redor?
Sem autocobrança com treino, medo de lesões, não gastam com suplementos e ainda tem todas unhas dos pés!
Eu só tenho roupa esportiva. Quase não tenho roupa fofinha (e isso não me incomoda).
Ah, Bia, mas você não gosta dessas coisas, né?
Gosto sim! Mas preciso priorizar. Não tenho recursos $ para ter tudo ao mesmo tempo.
Priorizei aquilo que me aproxima de ser quem eu sou. É uma escolha! E para cada escolha há uma renúncia!
Então, pra que? Porque fazer isso?
Resposta: É por todas as vezes que eu quis JOGAR A TOALHA e a outra Maria Beatriz, uma que só eu conheço, a segurou. Eu a conheço dos treinos. Quando estou correndo, e chego no meu ESTADO FLOW, rsrs , ela aparece. Eu gosto dela, ela é animada, alto astral, e raçuda, viu?
É ela quem segura minha toalha e diz: faz isso não, doida! Calça seu tênis, amarra o cabelo, liga o Garmin e vai treinar porque se não começar não termina! Hoje você tá mole demais!
Então, em respeito “a ela”, eu não desisto!
E se você gosta de um esporte se convença disso e pratique-o! Senão talvez não vai ter ninguém para segurar sua toalha quando você jogar!

It’s safe to say the humidity has spiked a bit 😂😂😂 My friends had told me that the best part of SoCal life is no humidity caused frizzy hair. Apparently, my hair accepted the challenge and has been exceeding the standards. #cannottamethemane #myhairhasamindofitsown

É preciso acreditar que você é merecedor das coisas que quer conquistar, para vencer você tem que merecer, porém mais que merecer, você deve ainda acreditar que merece a vitória 👊

Find you comfort zone then leave it!💪🏻💕
-
3 easy miles 🏃🏻‍♀️ when you look at my pace you might not think it was “easy”, but even though the sweat was pouring I was relaxed & could just run! I love when this happens especially on days when the temp isn’t in my favor!🙌🏻
-
Came home walked the 🐶 She expects it when I get home from my run🤷🏻‍♀️
-
Was still craving a little bit more of a workout so what was up next? Leg day with a bonus 10 minute abs🤦🏻‍♀️
-
I was like OMG this is gonna suck, BUT it didn’t & I was shocked myself at how much I was able to push for the whole 40 minutes! Love when all the workouts click!💕
-
Maybe this is a sign the day will be a great one Happy Thursday!😀

#trailrunthursday & #throwbackthursday to when my family and I were visiting friends in Bend, OR. .
I read something today about how Long slow distance (LSD) or Cardio makes you “fat and weak”. Then I read something else that suggested that you do 10-20 Kettlebell swings EMOM (every minute on the minute) x the amount of time you run 🏃‍♀️ to “see what happens”. .
.

I love ❤️ my #Kettlebells but there’s no way I’m doing swings x 30 min to an hour. Why? Because you don’t get this view❗️I prefer to run 🏃‍♀️ outside. That’s me, you may be different. .
.
.

But I’m pretty sure I’m neither fat nor weak 😂 In General, I think 🤔 that runners and cardio lovers should spend a bit more time on strength training and people who like to lift heavy sh*t should spend a bit more time on cardio. Because #balance 💥 .
.
.

PS- was trying out a camera 🎥 with a gimbal, I don’t recommend running 🏃‍♀️ while holding a camera . It’s not good for strength or cardio 😂.

Reflection on this Thursday: “Don’t go through life, grow through life.” I don’t know who said that, but it’s a good one! Becoming a mom pushed me past my comfort zone so much, all of the sudden things that used to seem terrifying weren’t anymore. Run 50 miles at a time , learn to swim freestyle, ride a bike for miles, the list goes on and on...
If you want to live life, don’t let fear paralyze you- let the excitement push you. #thursdayquotes #thursdaymotivation #thursdaythoughts #bibchat #bibravepro #womenfortri #womenrunning #runlikeamother #ultrarunner #bluegrassbamr #fearisaliar

First 5k this summer... I know it’s the end of August. The summer has gotten away from me and I woke up this morning motivated to get back to the things that make me feel good. Not only do I love to feel my heart and feet move a little faster, but I am setting an example for Emelia. It takes a lot of extra effort to push 65lbs of toddler/stroller/snacks/fluids/potty. #runtoronto #torontorunner #runningmotivation #runfit #5km #emeliaraelynn #kelsyinprogress #funwiththegfroerers #runlikeamother #runlikeagirl
