"It's okay if you fall down and lose your spark. Just make sure when you get back up, you rise as the whole damn fire." - Colette werden. 🔥After running the #army10miler this past weekend -- I have had a huge surge of momentum, energy, passion, and motivation. I feel that all along my goals for this year I have held a high level of determination and energy, but this feeling that I have.... is a whole new fire. It's been an amazing year for me -- my #runningjourney feels strong -- by the end of this month, my year has been filled with 3 half marathons, 2 ten-milers, 1 marathon and 7 5k races, ++ over a thousand miles and training runs. The last race sparked something in me, and I can't quite put it to words. I just feel so invincibly ready for #marinecorpsmarathon -- no matter what. There were a few weeks this summer where between the 12 hour hospital shifts, constant travel, and trying to squeeze in runs -- I may have had a backseat doubt about how this race would go, and a small part of me even considered deferment to next year. But, I do feel overwhelmingly passionate about my body and mind capabilities, and I have full trust that at this point -- my spirit can't be broken. Just remember, your journey is infinite -- and so is your potential. ✨ I'm not only building crazy enthusiasm about this #marathon (TEN DAYS!!) but also what's to come after.. 😁

— Coach @roguechris this week, sending out our Chicago, Portland and St. George marathon and half marathon racers.
Nothing too crazy going on for me so I’m hyping up the other folks! I got to run 14 miles, just building my long run up for marathon prep.
I’ll race in 4 weeks at Run for the Water, and then again in just 8 for CIM! I 💓 racing but I’m glad to back it down and just train for a bit.

"Every morning in Africa, a gazelle wakes up, it knows it must outrun the fastest lion or it will be killed. Every morning in Africa, a lion wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the slowest gazelle, or it will starve. It doesn't matter whether you're the lion or a gazelle-when the sun comes up, you'd better be running." 🏃🏼♀️
After two weeks off from running (and apparently social media too 🤷🏼♀️ hi y'all! Missed you 👋🏻) I'm excited to be back to chasing sunrises 🌅
Hope y'all are getting after it this morning too! 💪🏻
