Brunch is best followed by #runch 🥞🍳🌲🐶🏃🏼♀️ Maggie is loving this cooler weather. It is the best weather for all the smells (apparently) and she can run longer now that it is not so daggum hot in her husky coat 🤗 She did 8 today! Her longest run since last spring. Props to you Maggie girl! ❤️🐶🍕#traildog#labsky#damemaggiesmith#eastcoastaf
This morning’s run was a good one. One of those where you’re surrounded by beauty and you can’t help but be thankful for the access to some pretty sweet trails, your body’s ability to propel you over said trails, and for all those that make this possible. Yeah, it was a good morning.
It was a thrill to kick off my season racing the last 2 races of the #PGXC series in Upstate NY. Race 1 was my debut as a masters runner 😱 and my first win as a master! Race 2 I held onto 2nd finishing behind a teammate. In both races the #STC women’s masters team took the win, and the season ended with us taking 1st place in the series! What a fierce squad of inspirational women. Up next... #ACXC where I will NOT be racing as a master and NOT be placing, but will still have a blast mixing it up in this fun sport! 📷’s: Tim Matthews @altrarunning @syracusetrackclub
#tbt to the finish of last year’s #ECSCA . I didn’t have the day I hoped for but when I was fighting through those lows my spirits were always lifted by seeing so many familiar faces on that race course. And all I had to do was look around at the beautiful views to remind myself how grateful I was to be there at that moment. Running is a gift. I will miss seeing those friends, admiring those views, and pushing myself through the physical & emotional peaks and valleys along the way. It’s what I crave and it’s a love that will never fade. This weekend I will settle for following the race from home - it’s going to be an exciting one for sure! Best of luck to everyone racing!
The turnaround point at the Grindstone 100. Equally amazing and crushing feelings. You’re halfway, but your only halfway. But that view tho. #motivationmonday Changed into my @altrarunning Olympus at the aid station here and felt like a new person! 🤗
This just might be one of my favorite pictures of us... so proud of @jtcrop’s effort yesterday @runbumtours S2S 25k, and thankful to share this crazy awesome hobby 😘🏃🏽♀️🏃🏻 *

I lost my (only set of) keys on a run Saturday evening. VW closed early and they aren’t open at all on Sundays. Today I hiked the section from where I knew I had them last, but no luck. So if you see a set of keys, send them to me ‘cause dang, those things are $$$.
Cold temps have arrived and thus so have brisk weekend miles! It was a beautiful morning out on the trails but now it seems as though some coffee to warm up is in order! Or perhaps a delicious stout...
These people... I don’t even know where to start. Thank you Team Dad Bod for adopting me and helping me get that second #pinhoti100 buckle. Ryan, Patrick & Jen are rockstar crewers and pacers, and Jeff Stafford friggin kicked ass in his race! I’m honored to even know these folks, let alone to experience their 5-star service. #eastcoastbeastcoast#eastcoasttrailandultra#eastcoastaf
A quick montage of my last 6 months of training for the Grindstone 100. Race video will be up on my channel soon! Thanks again to @altrarunning for the amazing support over the last year, my feet are much happier because of you guys! ⬆️ Link in my bio!
On this very day last year, I finished my first ultra at the @runbumtours Georgia Sky to Summit 50k... so I couldn’t be more ecstatic to be returning to the very race that started it all next weekend! This year @jtcrop and I will both be toeing the line of the 25k option this year! ❤️🏃🏽♀️🏃🏻 T-minus 7 days!
