The things I love most about our monthly family friendly hikes it's not only the time we have to connect as team members but also the opportunity to connect with Mother Nature #teamRWB
Pics from our motivated morning at #CFKI
, hosting a workout for Team RWB, an awesome organization aimed at enriching veterans’ lives, and then watching them pass Old Glory from a runner to a kayaker across the Bay, as they are moving the flag across the USA using only manpower, between 9/11 and Veterans Day.
It’s awesome to be a part of events like these, and meeting incredibly patriotic individuals and groups like Team RWB.

MK1 is the oldest of my three kids. One of our constants, which has helped us bond, is running. She’s not into weight lifting; she prefers picking up books and new tidbits of “Hamilton.” But these runs ... are sometimes frustrating as she can walk at my run pace. They are always, always special. Today’s run was done in the rain at sunrise.

T-30 minutes I am nervous and pumped all at the same time getting ready for the Cape Town Marathon! All the training come down to one day #capetownmarathon2018 #teamrwb
RSD 523: Breaking out #thenorthface
gear to live up to the #weatherproof
name of #novemberproject
!!! While Summit did have some crazy mosquitoes, I've come to find out that Texas has some evil ones as they got me in between pausing my watch and taking a few 4 steps into the house. They are out waiting for our blood in the rain!?! Whattttt!?! Music free today, so I allowed my mind to wonder through some things. I am one of the many that are sick of the overload of rain this month and I love hot, dry days. But I must still remain determined in getting the work done, regardless if the weather is in the best conditions. What do I back down from because of the same reasons? New experiences, dating, a new home, returning to school... I thought of how I tend to shy away for most risks to remain comfortable in what seems stable. I pondered whether I should step out more and the pros and cons of different possible actions....BEEEEEPPPPP, 5K done.
Oh well, looks like I'll ponder this more another run, another time.

is in the books and we're all worn out!
This was a completely flat 9k (5.6 miles), but we had to contend with some crazy headwind in a couple of places.
Me - 52:11 (first female 😁 and I won a $50 gift card 💵)
Michael - 52:20
Eli - 53:40
Overall, this was a really great experience for all 3 of us. I'm feeling slightly broken after accommodating some foot pain and now I'm having a bit of sciatica trouble. ☹️ I'll be taking it easy for a couple days.

I don’t even know how to express in to words how incredibly amazing of a day today was. Together we traveled from Philadelphia to Dover as a team. The support along the way by police stations, fire houses and the community was overwhelming. What an adventure and I am blessed to be a part of a fabulous team. Old Glory continues to make her way to San Diego. #oldgloryrelay #teamrwb #rwbphilly
With this month being our five year anniversary as an official Team RWB Chapter, we'll share pictures and highlights from some of the awesomeness that is Team RWB Marion!
Our first wrestling, err cookout at Giant City in 2013! We hiked, we got lost, we hiked some more, and we ate! Great times!

Day 12 for the Philly and Northern Delaware Eagles are done! What an amazing day with a group of amazing people we can call family. #teamrwb #oldgloryrelay
for today is complete! PRs for all three of us!
Michael - 52:39
Eli - 53:33 He finished 2nd in his age group, but they weren't giving age group awards 😮
Eli legitimately beat me! I chased him hard and could not catch him, especially after he used his turbo boost near the finish line!

so far in 2018. These are a few of my favorite running moments from the year so far. I have been so intent on training for the #chicagomarathon
that I did not even realize I passed 1,000 miles a few days ago. So much fun with current friends and so many new running friends this year. It has been amazing so far. The moment I have been training for months for is coming up 2 weeks from tomorrow. The Chicago Marathon. #teamrwb #runnersofinstagram
Yesterday was the last day of summer.
I've recently had people tell me that I've been really motivated to do things. Here's why...
A few months ago I started listening to the Rich Roll Podcast. In May, he interviewed Jesse Itzler (entrepreneur, author, co-founder of Marquis Jets, owner of the NBA's Atlanta Hawks). During this podcast he said some things that really resonated in my mind, and had a profound impact on how I wanted to spend this summer.
He said, "we get caught in our own routine and time goes really fast when you’re in a routine and you’re doing the same thing over and over and before you know it, you’re 70 or 80, and you’re, oh man, I can’t climb that mountain that I wanted to climb, anymore." "My relationship with time was out of whack. The average American lives to be 78.... which means I’ve got 28 summers left. Who do you want to spend that time with, and what do you want to do?”
This summer I got to see family, meet new family, hang out with old friends and make new friends. I <3 you all!

I had so much fun at the Clarendon Day 10k! I was trying for a sub-1hr 10k time, but by mile 2 the heat and humidity was getting to me and I could not sustain the pace. Since I have the Chicago Marathon in 2 weeks, I decided to play it safe, drop the pace and finish strong. I finished with a 1:05 finish time, which I will gladly take! Now it's time to rest and recover and get ready for my 3 marathons in 5 weeks: Chicago Marathon, MCM and NYC Marathon!
