The biggest thing I’m learning is that if you want to do something, you just have to get up and do it... Seems obvious, but it’s taken me a while to put into practice. A year ago, I started my YouTube channel and never would have believed I’d be getting the opportunities that I am right now. Got an email last night and I’ll be sharing more as soon as it becomes a plan🤐. This year is about to blow up!! 💥👊
My car breaking down came at the perfect time. I’m really progressing with letting things go - not only through purging material goods but more importantly with emotional stress. I too often become comfortable with what I have and take daily conveniences for granted. .
I haven’t been stressed about not having a car. I’ve been in no hurry to remedy the situation. Many people don’t seem to understand this but perhaps they’ve never tried to. It’s just a car. There are many other ways to get around. I had forgotten how much I love run-commuting. I even ran to the bus station yesterday to get where I needed to go. It’s simple really. I like simple.
I was fully expecting my car repairs to extend beyond the value of the car. I was going to have it towed 70 miles and leave it until I decided to trade it in for something new. They called today and the repairs aren’t that costly. So I’m getting it fixed as I continue my search for a van. She apologized that they wouldn’t have it done until the weekend. I again stated that I’m in no hurry. I was kind of bummed to learn I’d be getting my car back this weekend. I will make a pact with myself to spend more time run-commuting. It’s way more fulfilling than relying upon something that is by no means a necessity.
Run Upstate worked with the Malta 5k to create their new logo for this year's race! Be sure to check out this race on Sept 8th in Malta, NY.

Running 16ish miles along one of the most difficult sections of trail in the North Georgia Mountains is a treat.... Running it in the snow with friends is even better! This is definitely be a run that I will not forget! ❤️❄️🏔
“The greatest gains often follow immense struggle and discomfort... Growth comes at the point of resistance, skills come from struggle.” -Brad Stulberg and Steve Magness @stevemagness Reading #PeakPerformance and loving it, amazing book on endurance and mental training. I am definitely a hot weather athlete and I am jumping out of my skin waiting to be on the other side of the sun ☀️. I’m ready to suffer again. @altrarunning #altraredteam#runrabbitrun100
I don’t typically get too excited about a new year, but I am genuinely pumped about what is coming. Big adventures in racing and filming, headed to Colorado to run 100 miles in the mountains, and already have multiple film collaborations lined up throughout the year- and it’s only the beginning of January!! Stay tuned, of course I’ll be sharing it all. I am the kind of person that needs big scary mountains to climb in life. 2018 is living up to that. Thanks @altrarunning for being there every step of the way and helping me accomplish it all! #wednesdaywisdom
After my feet got trashed in last years’ epic wet race, I missed my goal time and need to go back and take care of business. I love the Massanutten trails, love the spirit of this race, and the amazing volunteers that make everything happen. MMT, I’m coming for round two!
Fun day freezing our butts off with friends at Atlanta Fatass! 🍑 I opted to half-ass it 😂 in the 25k, and came home with a new PR! 😄 thank you to all of the always-incredible @gutsrunning volunteers! [📸 creds: @sstaylorphoto]
Time to retire this look for a few days. I’m not going to miss getting halfway dressed before remembering to get on the floor to do my activation exercises 😂 I may even get to run some pavement by the end of the week!
