What a great weekend!! By far the best race experience Ive had to date!!!! I started the weekend off with a official 5k PR, and placed 3rd in my division with a time of 25:10. Which I was pretty pumped about given that we started in the back, and it took me the first mile to weave in and out the crowd. #winning#chasing2nd#nextyear
Sunday was amazing! I achieved my second sub 2 Alongside one awesome Miss @dani.f.baby Who I have a newfound respect for. She wanted that sub 2 and she errand the hell out of it!! Congratulations again girl!! Of course it wouldn’t have been a great race weekend without my solo sister @wickedradtech there! It may have not been the outcome you wanted. But coming off a injury, and pushing through the pain. #madprops Winner in my book! #numberonefan#soproud
MOST OF ALL! The HIGHLIGHT OF MY WEEKND!! I can’t thank @jodibadeaux @madisonnkayle @klglascock and the gang from @geauxcrossfit for their support!! Their is no better feeling than seeing friends and family along the course supporting you. Seriously, It’s like a turbo bust in the a$$! Thank you, thank you, thank you!! I was literally on cloud 9 the rest of the day!! #oneveryhappygirl#louisianamarathon#geauxrunla

Sometimes you have to take a step back to remember the real reason you embarked on this journey.
Exactly two years ago I packed my bags and said goodbye to Washington, DC. I didn’t come here because I was running out of options. This was my dream from day one of Grad School. I chose this. I manifested it through hard work and passion. Yet, somehow I got distracted on the real reason why I am here. I got here. Reached a goal. Forgot my purpose. Forgot to live. Wasted my energy in the wrong things and people. Forgot to put passion and creativity in my work. Forgot to love myself. Forgot to be thankful. Forgot to soak in the wonderful surroundings, the fresh crisp air, the mountains, the ocean, the nature... the endless possibilities. I drank the negativity kool-aid. I had one leg here, and the other somewhere else. Until last Thursday. Everything became real very fast and I knew then what my heart really wanted. This is me, full of excitement, even for things that are completely irrelevant to most (like “Californiaversaries” 😂😂😂). Welcome home, Mayra ❤️💚. #running#run#runner#runforlife#instarunners#runs#runnersworld#runnerslife#runnersshoutouts#runhappy#runforfun#runitfast#runhappy#happyrunner#loverunning#runnerscommunity#fitness#fit#fitfam#workoutsnap#instarunners#instafit#instafitgirls#runrabbit#runarete#bigsur#trailrunning#marathontraining
It took 46 days to get there due to a less active month of December but I’m super chuffed to have made it to Leeds on my @run_around_europe journey .
Leeds. The place I still call home ... and then have to correct myself! It has the fourth largest student population apparently and I was one of them .
It feels like a long time since I made a trip up there to see my friends and I’ve certainly never run up there. Perhaps it’s time to arrange a trip ...
What are those hairy scary goals you set for yourself for the new year?
Have you started and gave up on them already or thought about starting, but somehow keep talking yourself out of taking the first step in that direction?? I get it! Whether its to lose weight, gain muscle, eat healthier, or be a happier person for your family. It's scary to start, when you don't know where or how to even begin. You feel intimidated but all the what to dos & what not to dos. I've been there. You just need a helping hand in forgoing this journey. I can do this for you. You never have to go on a journey alone, you have someone who will help guide you to those goals you set so highly for yourself.
Clear your mind of can't & let's do this together!💥💥💥
