Tag 19 des #rwjanuarstreak
war für mich auch dieses Jahr wieder etwas Besonderes, weil es sich dabei um meinen Geburtstagslauf handelte 🥳🎉 Schön wäre heute ein 35 km-Longrun gewesen, den ich aber aufgrund von mangelnder Zeit heute nicht in den Tag einbauen konnte 🤷🏻♀️🤣. Ich habe mich deshalb für die 3,5 km lange Variante im 🐌-Tempo entschieden 😉
Ich bin froh, dass es mir so gut geht und hoffe, dass ich auch im neuen Lebensjahr ohne Verletzungen den Sport, den ich so liebgewonnen habe🏃🏻♀️, weiterhin mit so viel Freude und Spaß ausüben kann ☺️
Ich hätte euch heute gerne ein anderes Foto geboten, aber bei den -4,5 Grad, die das Thermometer heute morgen zeigte, musste ich mich wieder ziemlich dick einpacken 🥶 Die Mülltonnen im Hintergrund sind jetzt kein optisches Highlight, aber es war die einzige 35, die ich heute unterwegs gefunden habe 😉
Habt heute einen schönen Tag, genießt das schöne Winterwetter ☀️ und lasst es euch gutgehen 😊🤗

Sooooo happy with finally doing a 21km 🤗 Everything hurts!, EVERYTHING 🥴 But feeling really proud of myself!
I haven’t been a runner my whole life, and for many years running didn’t come naturally to me. I was never in cross country or track in school; I probably wouldn’t have made the team. I did, however, WANT to run, so I road ran 3-5mi 2-3 days/week throughout high school. Nearly all of that time I suffered from overuse injuries including shin splints, ankle injuries, blisters, plantar fasciitis, and more. I saw various professionals, went through countless pairs of orthotics and tried nearly every shoe imaginable at the time. Eventually I started reading books and learning that you can actually make adjustments to HOW you run to see improvement. It started working! Throughout that entire process, my drive to run was unstoppable. With a local forest nearby I switched almost fully to trail running, and things had improved in my body enough that I was gradually able to increase mileage up to the half-marathon distance. In 2011 I also started backpacking and discovered a deep desire to hike the Pacific Crest Trail. I hiked longer and longer trails each summer while running and working my ass off to save $$ in the off seasons, until 2015 when my dreams came true and I hiked the Arizona Trail and the PCT consecutively- 3400 miles. This is where the endurance piece kicked in for me with countless 30+mi days, several 40+mi days, and one 52mi day, as well as a 235 mile week. Finally, in 2016 I ran my first official ultra marathon race (although I had already ran/hiked multiple self-supported marathon and ultra distances by that point). I’ve since raced 2-3 ultras per year in addition to many self-supported and often times solo 30+ mile days through the mountains; my home. Better yet, I’ve been injury free since 2015 thanks to a few great teachers along the way, and to self study with an emphasis on form and biomechanics. And as for now: Just after finishing Bigfoot 100k this past August, my partner and I found out that we were 6 weeks pregnant! This photo was taken yesterday at 28+ weeks along. It’s a joy to still want to and be able to run and ski, and I will continue to do so as my body allows, and always give thanks for this gift of health and strength!
Today, I felt good. Really truly GOOD mentally and emotionally all day. It made for a productive, fun day!
Plus, I was able to eat consistently throughout the day.
My goal for this week was to increase my caloric intake to keep pace with training, and today I succeeded.
I feel good - fueled and grounded.
My doctor upped my medications to 30mg of the anti-depressant and 15mg of a new sleeping pill that I started last night. I don’t love the hungover feeling in the morning from sleeping aids, but when you’ve spent years sleep-deprived and months battling nightmares and waking up constantly, it’s hard to say no to sleep!
I just keep reminding myself that the medication stage of treatment and recovery is temporary.

Dari tahun 2009 sampai hari ni bila race je mesti rasa banyak kupu2 dalam perut.. 🦋🦋🦋.. adoiii aiii.. .
Kita tukar, bukan nervous ni, EXCITED!!! Yeahh!!! Jumpa malam ni you all. Kita pusing2, turun naik tangga 16 jam ye.. 🤸💃💪 #intansrunningdiary #fitmom #ultrrunner #runningmom
If found on ground, please drag across the finish line 🗿 😅 If you saw my story, you’ll hear a bit about this journey. ZERO training and I’m going in like a crazy freaking woman 🤦🏻♀️ Maybe it’s because I’ve been listening to @davidgoggins
’ new book Can’t Hurt Me and he’s inspired me to push myself. Maybe it’s because I’m scared so I know I should do it. Maybe it’s because I don’t want to quit on myself. Again.
What I do know is that I’m learning how to get comfortable with getting uncomfortable. Whatever is driving me (I’m seriously shocked I’m doing this 🥴) I refuse to give up. I AM WORTH IT ✨
❄️ Fantastic Friday morning run lead to a great day of positivity. It is simply amazing how much better my day is after a mind clearing run.🏃🏽♀️

impossible is nothing. obesity doesnt run in the family, obesity occurs because no body runs in the family. I was close to 70kg when i was 16 years old, 24 years ago. I started losing weight gradually by changing my food intake.
Got involved in sports when i was 30years old - took up swimming lesson, and swim almost everyday at lunch time. 7 years ago, i began running and never stop or regret ever lacing up and run. It was hard at first. But keep going and dont give up.
NOTHING is too late if you want to change. You have to have strong willpower, determination and istiqamah to achieve your goal. You have to have passion in what you do. Remember, 80% of new year resolution fails by end of february each year. Dont be part of the statistic! Change your diet and exercise, stop giving excuses. l'll be 40 this year. And i am in better shape than i was 20 or even 10 years ago.
Rasulullah takes care of his diet and active in sports too (horse riding, archery), to remain healthy to preach to others. So what's stopping you?
Cheers to hot chocolate, hockey and cancer awareness.
Tonight is cancer awareness night. And it is this time of the year I start shutting down and have panic attacks. Last year was the first year in the past 3 years I did not get a call back after my mammogram.
It is so important to get checked every year. Cancer doesn't care if you have kids, doesn't care how old you are or how healthy you are.
Monday is my appointment and I am in freak out mode but trying to be optimistic this year.
I follow many people who are fighting, have fought or have had scares and it those people who help me keep a positive outlook with my test.
If you can; donate to your local cancer care to help kick cancer's ass.
RIP to my cousin who died at 10 of a brain tumor. And AMEN to my aunt who is a breast cancer survivor.

It’s always in the FOLLOW THROUGH!!! Short challenges can be easier than long term resolutions: build-up to your vision, one step at a time.
It could be a cooking challenge, a fitness challenge, a challenge to get a degree, or another degree🤷♀️, pay a debt, buy a home, or even a challenge to wash your dog more often. Challenge yourself and follow through!
Remember, you are your only competition! That’s what’s real...in the long game.
Day 17 of 30: 1 mile speed test, outdoors...HEEELL YEEAA! 7min 37sec BABY!🔥🔥🔥
Followed by my training run of 4 miles, outdoors, with hills...at an 8min 3sec mile average.
Running is my freedom: my meditation and mental silence. It is the most intense and challenging part of my day, and when my breathing relaxes into a steady flow, and my mind is clear, my body feels like it’s flying, like I have a beautiful endlessness in front of me, beneath me, and around me. Freedom.
And when it’s done, the translation from the trail to real life is this:
it can be hard, it can hurt, I may loose my breath, or trip and injure myself in a pot hole, but I’m not gonna die, and if I keep going, keep pushing, I get to cross the proverbial finish line knowing I did the best I could! Because I do the best I can.
Find your freedom and do one thing everyday...Everyday...to grow that passion!
Oh, and eat real, clean food, to support your physical and mental goals!! It makes a real difference!
Be well!♥️ Find your challenge!

Had a beautiful 10km run this afternoon.
Enjoyed the beauty view of the lake, the crisp air, falling snowflakes, and Real Talk Podcast with @clawrence27
talking in my ear. So much of the podcast resonated with me, but something in particular that she said I could really relate to. Collier, an incredible competitive runner, spoke about feeling like she wasn’t someone who had talent, but more someone who just had incredible drive and motivation, and this is why she excelled. That is the story of my life, I have never exuded a natural ability in anything; academically, professionally, physically, athletically. But yet, I feel that I have experienced much success in all of those areas. Why? Because I work at it, I work for it!!! I will never be the smartest, the strongest or even the quickest. But I tell you, I will be the one in the crowd who by gawd, gave it their all!!#momsmofogoals #runningmotivation #runningmom #atb2019
made me dig into my old albums. At 35, gave birth to my 2nd son. At the time and before, my only concern was to be skinny. Knew nothing about being fit and strong. Always on a diet and always hungry. Didn’t know any better. But life was good.
Fast forward 10 years, life is better still. I’ve put on 4-5kgs, love exercising, and fell in love with running. Love the side effects of having better muscle tone, feeling lighter and stronger despite the weight gain. Since running seriously 3 years ago, I’ve ran 2 half marathons, several 10ks as well as vertical marathons (tower running). Now at 45, I’m training for my first full marathon and am enjoying the process. It’s a real challenge on my old legs, so extra recovery time is inevitable. Although there’s always fear that I’ll break down, getting injured and burned out, or cannot even make it to the starting line, I’m not afraid to take up the challenge, within reason and ability. Being older and have made mistakes along the way, make me a little wiser, more confident in my own skin and to think ahead before taking the next step. I don’t care too much about what others think of me. I’d rather focus my energy on my family, doing what I love, and improve myself as a human being. I’ve learnt to embrace age as it comes along and living a good, meaningful, and healthy life. #grateful #runningover40 #runningafter40 #fitafter40 #fitover40 #sgrunners #fitmomsg #sgrunningmom #newzealandrunning #nzrunning #iloverunning #instarunners #runninglife #mastersrunner #igrunners #slowrunning #learntorunbetter #longdistancerunner #longdistancerunning #marathonrunning #womensrunning #runningmom #womensrunningcommunity #runnersofinstagram #allsznrunner #marathontraining #TheAngelRunning #summerrunning #runningismylife
I’m 43. No spring chicken here. 🐓😂And I’ve spent a whole lot of those 43 years pretending to be something I wasn’t, afraid to share parts of who I really am, the struggles I’ve encountered, the fears and self doubts I have, and then beyond that, trying to fit into the mold of who other people thought I should be.
Know what that got me?
Other than dead-end jobs I hated?
Or fake bleached hair (I LOVE blonde women, real and dyed...but not how I did it).
And with an eating disorder.
And riddled with debilitating anxiety and bouts of scary depression.
And saying “yes” to everyone and everything because I thought doing everything for everyone else and not taking care of myself would make others like me or respect me more.
So...yeah, that got me nowhere.
And in the last several years, I’ve realized that and worked really hard to remind myself of this daily.
Am I perfect now? Nope!
Am I satisfied with staying stagnant in my life, career, marriage, and relationships? No way!
Am I dedicated to still trying to be the best version of myself? ABSOLUTELY!
Am I excited to pursue new opportunities, if they align with MY values, my goals, my needs, my life, my marriage, my family? YES. YES. YES!! But now, at the ripe young age of 43, I’m not hesitant to share all this.
Not because I am un-afraid of people and their judgey-mcjudgment...that always still hurts.
No, I’m not afraid to share because I know that I am a flawed human, in the likeness of G-d, and all I can do in this life - as a mother, wife, friend, daughter, sister, professor, human - is MY personal best.
I am me. I am not anyone else. I’m not perfect or even trying to be. I’m just over here trying MY BEST.
If you are surrounded by anyone - anywhere - who EVER makes you question you...your worth...turn tail and run. Fast. And Far.
You be you. Yes, your best you. But YOU. 😘
When life not only test you mentally but physically has well. Two weeks of building myself💪🏽💪🏽 from running 1.5 mile run in 20 minutes to 14:41. Definitely not the fastest but I finally graduate from a walk with a little run to running the entire course. With my hubby by my side and most of the time leaving me 🏃🏾♂️The only thing that matters is, I passed 🏃🏾♀️. Damn, I hate running 😅 #runningmotivation #runningmom #runninggirl #runninglifechallenge
Crispy outside. Warm and soft inside ☺️#runhappy
My mischievous little evils exhaust me to new limits. But if I didn’t work out I would never keep up with them 😂 #momathlete
