I forgot a pic today so here's a little #tbt to a couple weeks ago and a stroller run. Got in 5 easy treadmill miles, cleaned our house for a showing, went on an adventure by foot with the kids (well, I went by foot pushing the stroller, kids went by bike and scooter). And then spent the rest of the day prepping and packing for HTC , and other household chores. Just doing life and getting things done. Feeling pretty excited for tomorrow and the weekend. Let's do this! .

Can't stop thanking Hashem for His breathtaking world 😍😍 .

There is so much I wanna share with you, so much I wanna catch you up on, so many important thoughts... And sometimes my desire for perfectionism gets in the way, making me feel like I can't post if I don't do it right.
..
Tonight I reminded myself it doesn't have to be all or nothing..I can story every so often and not feel bad if I go a few days without. I can post a picture without the perfect caption. I can even share my thoughts when they're not perfectly formulated... And you'll bear with my while I ramble.
..
I've been enjoying my insta-free life so much I know I'm going to have to set clear guidelines for myself as I go back. But in the meantime I've realized I can still share some of the beauty of Mammoth with you. Wanna see more pictures from our incredible high-altitude training camp+family vacation?? Stories, post with lots of pics, more posts 👇

Thank you so much for your love, support and patience with me as I find the right balance for me and @instagram 💗💗

Easy one mile run tonight! 😊

Late post because when I tried to post this it didn’t go through! 😞😞
Lotty crushed her first day back at @_asapfit_ after baby. Hit just under a 30” seated box jump 🤩🤯😳 I did about half that with the bump 😂😂
Then some of the rest of the shoulder burner workout dumbbell push press and wall walks which I just did to my comfort level 🤰🏼🤰🏼

No regrets! 🙌🏻


After my run yesterday morning I was beat! Almost immediately I was considering not running today. It’s hot. And I was tired. And you gotta treat your body right. But as I got further away from my run yesterday and closer to today’s run I started feeling better. So I went for the run. 🏃🏼‍♀️


And I am glad I did. I loosened up a lot faster than I thought I would. And it felt really good! Runs like these always boost my confidence. So no regrets here this evening 🤗


Also.... don’t forget to join me and my fellow Friends of @houhalf @fleetfeethouston Greenbriar for a social fun run Monday! These events are always a good time so you don’t want to miss out!!!

This isn’t a trail I frequent. But it is one that holds powerful memories for me. I’ve run this trail during some of the toughest seasons, both emotionally and physically, of my life. .
.
.
I ran this trail when I thought my Dad was going to die from the cancer taking over his body. I walked this trail after tearing my hamstring, and refusing to pull out of a race. I ran this trail, terrified about how I was going to make it as a single mom. I’ve run this trail, sometimes with tears in every step. .
.
.
While those things, and times were certainly painful, this trail doesn’t bring me sadness. It brings me peace. It gives me assurance that through every stage, I’m moving forward. Both faster and stronger. .
.
.
Im not in a tough season currently, and there’s a lightness in my step and my heart that feels free. It’s the good runs, the ones like these, that heal. .

Had my first day of teaching for the semester today! 👩🏻‍🏫 Anddd then rushed home to my girl who came home early from school with strep! 😩 Got the kids in bed and snuck out for an easy 5k in my sweet new @sportsbackers Richmond Marathon training tank! 🏃🏻‍♀️ Set down after my run to watch a little Downton Abbey with the hubs and my girl woke up crying because she was so uncomfortable from the strep. I think we’re in for a long night. 😞 Happy Friday Eve; hope yours is better (healthier!) than ours!

Started the day off with a dying watch and a trail run. Found our way to the pool after lunch for some water running and kicking. The new recipe for Tuna and black bean burgers I made for dinner was amazing! And I finally found my charge cord after dinner so no more dying watch. #motherrunner #strollerrun #trailrunning #cloudyday #thesemotherscanrun #runhappy #blackbeanburger #tuna #optoutside #run #running #flexibledieting #flexeating #macros

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

Today we found a little bit of our old speed. I decided since my leg feels great on the down hills and ugg on incline that I'd let it out on the downhill and embrace going fast and then baby the uphill. It was work, but it made me happy.



Post run, I now feel much better than I expected I would, and so much more like me. I was legitimately smiling ear to ear as I finished this run. 10k with the duallie for an 8:08 average!

Week 8 of Amsterdam marathon training is under the hot Italian sun. My six miler in Venice was a suffer fest - after a bad night of insomnia, I got out too late and got scorched. But I somehow hit my paces, and am really pleased that I’m sticking to this plan on holiday. Now for some serious carb loading😉

First double stroller run in a month! I thought I was mostly done with stroller running for this pregnancy but Nate is out of town for work and I needed to run. I had an interval workout on the schedule for today and I did it stroller and all! (Paces in my stories). •
I really love running with the stroller and after today I’m hoping I can get in some more runs with the kids as the temperatures cool down this fall!

Do you prefer running solo or with the stroller?? I like a healthy balance of both. 😜

Another picture from this weekend. Because I miss running. 😂

WHY I'M A MORNING RUNNER

I never thought I'd be an early morning runner until I had my son and realized every minute I spend with him is numbered (in the grand scheme of things). As a teacher, I have obligations to meet, plans to make, papers to grade, etc, and often times that does bleed over into after school. I still have the luxury of getting home a couple hours earlier than my husband, so that gives me more time to play with my little dude. Yes, I do sometimes run then as my son doesn't mind watching me on the treadmill, but I've signicantly cut back on afternoon runs (except if I need to do a double #marathontraining) and now do before school (hello, 4:45 wake up!) Even this summer when I could've slept in, I got up most days and ran before he woke up just so I had the whole rest of the day with him! Morning running has become part of who I am. I feel more energized; I have more time, and it still gives me that much needed 'me time' all moms (and teachers) crave! #brooksbestfestsweeps #brooksrunning

If you have a bad day, get out there & remember why you started. ✨
.
I know I have the fitness to complete yesterday’s workout & there will be more days to attempt it. Today was about embracing the 70 degree weather with my babe who I (re)started my running journey with. ❤️
.
And again to highlight, we’ve had a 25 degree temp drop since yesterday. 🙄 but 🎉

3 mile walk with my crew to check out some awesome jets from the air show!! ✈️🤰🏼👦🏼👧🏼

Making my way back 🥳 Thoughts when I saw this workout:
1.) my 35 week pregnant coach (with 3 under 3 coming soon) is definitely losing her mind 😘 @runstrongmama
2.) focus on effort! It does not matter whether you hit the pace, effort = GROWTH!
3.) is there any excuse I can come up with to move this workout to a different day?
4.) I actually did have a cupcake last night so this @sarahmariedesignstudio tank seems perfect!


2 up
.50 @ 7:19 pace (actual 7:28)
.25 @ 6:44 pace (actual 6:59)
Rest 3 min
Repeat 2 more x (rest of the details are in my stories if you really care 🤪)

This seasons mantra: control what you can, let go of the rest! What’s your mantra lately?

Kicked off the morning with some single stroller miles with my littles babe 💙
.
While we shared many, many miles together during pregnancy, this was his first run with me on the outside. 🌎 I’m so excited to be able to bring him along, and to think about all the time we will spend together chasing goals in the future. It also made me nostalgic for the first stroller run I did with Carter, which doesn’t feel all that long ago.
.
Next up: attempting our first double stroller run with my two favourite passengers. 👦🏼👶🏻

It’s Friday Eve! Did an easy run/walk for not quite 3 miles. I swear AZ has the best sunrises. #azrunner #azsunrise #womensrunningcommunity #inspiringwomenrunners #thesemotherscanrun #irunthisbody #ihavearunnersbody #runhappy #keeprunning

Happy Thursday loves!
6 miles this am, I hit a 5k pr and a 1 mile pr this am so I am feeling pretty good today! Also running later than usual and there were kids at the usual place I take pics so had to run in a wet field for my pictures 😂🤦🏽‍♀️

I woke up at 4:40am and still didn’t have time to fit in enough miles before my husband left for work. I was able to catch some beautiful views though. I love running with the sunrise! The next few days are supposed to be about 10-15 degrees cooler and I cannot wait for that. My glasses kept fogging up while running and that’s not a good combination with running in the dark. I’m having a lot of self-doubt about my upcoming race and if my goals are even attainable. Hopefully that’s just summer running! 🤞🏼

Once a week when my husband takes a rest day I get to workout in the mornings. I never labeled myself as a morning or an evening worker outter, but the more I get to work out in the morning the more I realize how much I love it. With full time jobs, schools, and about to be 3 kids, I am not picky, I’ll take what I can get, but I really do love morning workouts.
So, today I walked 3 miles and did a quick little #wod of 3 rounds:
5 front squats
5 box step ups (each leg)
10 ground pull-ups
#dizdaysofsummer day 11 yesterday I only got 1 mile, but today gave me another 3. And the #streaking continues 😀🏋️‍♂️🤰🏼

How To Take Great Race Day Photos 🏅📸 ⁣

1. Smile!⁣
2. Don’t worry about it! 😅⁣

#ThrowbackThursday 🔙 to my last race two weeks ago - a short 5.3km race in Kuldīga, Latvia! The course was beautiful, but my first reaction when seeing this race photo was “ohh no, what an awkward angle!” 🙈 I had just crossed the finish line, I was trying to stop my watch, and I was trying to slow down running all at the same time. Luckily I had a chance to smile!! 😃⁣

Just remember that 9 out of 10 running photos make you look awkward, half-happy, half-angry, in pain, sweaty AF, tense, uncomfortable, or some kind of strange hybrid serious-surprised expression. Let’s just embrace it! 💗⁣
