Thursday thankfulness

Thankful for my ability to run pain free.

-last week I ran 40.35 miles and am feeling great!

-ran my 2nd fastest 5k ever last week too! Take that hip flexor injury!

Thankful for CB runs. He keeps me running at an easy fun pace- with some SQUIRREL sprints mixed in. I <3 my happy runner dog.

I joined the "What's beautiful" under armor challenge. I posted my fall goal for the world to see. Follow me on my journey to complete this amazing goal.

Thankful I will be running the Chicago Spring half again this year. Will it be a PR effort? Stay tuned Saturday to find out :)

I've been running more consistently than ever before, so anything is possible!

My new "sinister bunny" Nike shirt arrived yesterday!

My first order of GU and Stinger Waffles arrived yesterday- meaning one thing: Marathon training officially begins in less than 6 weeks!!

I couldn't be more excited to run and achieve my marathon goal this year with the help and encouragement of my running Coach. :)

What are you thankful for this week?

  2. you must tell me where you ordered that shirt from!!!

  3. You truly have so much to be thankful for! It really is the best feeling ever to run without any pain. (I have my good days and my bad days...!)

    Unbelievable that marathon training is just around the corner, too. Here's to all of us having strong, powerful training seasons leading up to fantastic races!

    Once again, I wish you a terrific race at the Chicago Spring Half this weekend! You are going to knock it out of the park!

  4. Love that shirt! I am thankful my hip is starting to feel better today. Hopefully a week of rest will do it some good. Thankful I started resting it before it got bad!

  5. Wow where did you order the gus and stuff from? That came so fast!

    Fingers crossed for mild weather for you this weekend!

  6. Yay! So happy that you are feeling good! I love that shirt!!! :) And seeing CB, of course.

    This week I am thankful for friends that listen to me babble! :)

  7. You will have no problem making that goal!! I am thankful for a comfy bed this week, because all i want to do is sleep! :D
