I won a pie!! I mean, I hate pie. But I love the fact that I won a #pie. I also placed 2nd in the F20-29 age group! :) A little hilly, but overall a very nice run through Croton today at the Harry Chapin Memorial Run Against Hunger 10K. I finished in 48:12.8, pacing at 7:46/mile—and I got a nice medal and pie to show for it. Now that’s a victory I can (literally) taste! #running #raceday #racebling #pie #runagainsthunger #HarryChapin (at Croton-Harmon High School)

#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

VoilĂ ! “V” is for #Vancouver. Props to Kenny G for making this V from Ang’s leftover moulding. Please note the strategic placement of my first #FlyingPigsMarathon water bottle behind the V. Where will number three be? TBD!! :) #modpodge #BMOVM #collage #crafts #DIY #marathon #secondmarathon #running #commemorate #Canada #RanVan

This year I placed 2nd out of 14 in the F19-29 age group with a #10k finish time of 50:34. Overall place, 45/143; women’s rank, 6/55; and paced at 8:09min/mi. Considering how horribly hilly this course is, and that I beat my time and division place from 2013 (51:22, 3rd place), I’d say today was a great day for a #run and my much needed #rejuvenation. I’m not giving up on a first place age group award; I can do anything I set my mind to with the incredible support I have. Every day you can take the path toward a #betteryou. :) #StormKingRun #running #raceday (at Storm King Highway)

I need a rejuvenation in my #running career! Hope this helps. Good morning, world! #10k #WestPoint #StormKingRun #selfieSunday #prerace (at Storm King Highway)

I spy…#runner #goodform #asics #gelkayano20 #dreadmill #passion. It’s me #running in #Dallas! :) (at The Westin Dallas Park Central)

WELL over 450-500 miles later…my #soul and #soles will be #happy again!!! I have to stop waiting for the body aches and kinks to remind me to re-order! #runnerprobs #longoverdue #running #Asics #kayanos #gelkayano20 #newkicks #neon #greenmachine #nofilter

#Bittersweet evening. Like #Jeter, pair #2 (get it?) of my #Kayanos is #retiring. :( We’ve had some memorable runs in 2014—from my second #marathon (#BMOVM in #Vancouver, #Canada in May) to my first #ultra and #50K on #trail (#TheNorthFace #ECSDC in June)—and I will never forget them. I’m so proud of what I’ve #accomplished this year with my #running, and I’m super excited to figure out what’s next! With these freshies on my feet, it’s time to pick a #race. :) #inspired #run #running #Asics #GelKayano20 #passion #newkicks #betteryou #dreambig #goals #believe #achieve #fitspiration #motivate

#TBT: That time I left myself a #BoogieBoard message to come home to after #running in the 2014 #ECSDC—and successfully completing my first #50K! :) Well, it felt wonderful, then agonizingly painful, then gradually better. Then oh danggg. What’s this?!
