#TBT: When I semi-spontaneously ran the #Yonkers #HalfMarathon on 9/28/14 and placed 4th in the F20-29 age group! :) Not my fastest time, but for not formally training, I was happy with 1:45:27; it’s pretty consistent with my road pace. One day I’m gonna make the top three in one of these local races/halves—and NOT mistakenly receive a post-race e-mail telling me I placed third and need to pick up my award in Brooklyn! (Even when I stayed for the awards and didn’t hear my name called lol). One day it will be me up there. I can’t describe what it would mean, but I can say this: it’s not about the physical medals or awards you might win at the end. It’s about the unique #journey and #challenges that each race brings. One race is never the same as the next—and all that #unknown that you #learn and #experience throughout a course is what brings me to every starting line. I’m #thankful for each #race I’m able to finish. Because with every step and stride, I’m reminded of just how far I’ve come to create a better me. With that kind of mindset, every day is a reward. Running is not a #destination. It’s a rewarding journey that never ends. #betteryou #owntheroad #running #NYCRUNS #racebling #YonkersHalfMarathon #inspiration #fitspiration

Pre-race #expo ritual: writing down my #goal and taking a picture with it. A #marathon is all mental. I knew 3:30 was a stretch goal—but that’s what I trained for. I wanted to #run a #BQ time. Came close to hitting my secondary goal of 3:45 but had some major GI issues during the #race. Overall, I’m #thankful that I was able to finish—and for the 18 weeks of #commitment to a #training plan that allowed me to start. #Running has changed my life. It makes me realize what I’m capable of achieving—and with every stride I am humbled by that feeling. #betteryou #bmovm @bmovanmarathon #secondmarathon #dreambig #achieve (at Vancouver Convention Centre)

Striving for a strong finish— thanks to this guy with the NYC Marathon t-shirt who helped me keep my pace up for the last few miles. #inspiration #bmovm #halfmarathon #running #run #finishline #raceday #race #frozenpenguin #nycruns #Brooklyn #nyc

Ohhh what I would give to run this again!! What a great e-mail to open up—which I received at 4:03am Eastern time. Oh Switzerland. I miss you with all of my being. #takemeback

#PROOF. Proof that I’m a freaking #flyingmonkey. #fly #flying #running #race #rnrbk #stride #finishstrong

This is how I do. #rnrbk #running #race #raceday #actionshot (at Prospect Park Loop)

It’s amazing when you start realizing your potential and recognizing how far you’ve come. A #PR in #ProspectPark at yesterday’s 10K in #Brooklyn! #RNRBK #running #race #raceday #medal #racebling #rocknroll #betteryou

Semi-spontaneous 10K #race today at #WestPoint. Had to #run it. Oh, and I placed second in the female 19-29 age group!!! :) Not too bad for a significantly hilly course. #PR #silvermedal #silver #medal #running #funning #achieve #goal #missionaccomplished #StormKingRun #betteryou

This weekend’s #DIY from @allyou - #Decoupage an #ampersand with a map of your #favorite region. Translation: #Switzerland. #Davos #Geneva #Swissalpine #halfmarathon #SwissAlps #running #race #travel #modpodge #artsandcrafts #design

My first marathon! Re-capped in 10 pictures (due to Tumblr’s limited, mobile multi-image select feature).
