This is the face of a gal who just had a successful, pain-free run after resting a cranky knee for over a week. I’m so stoked I was able to run tonight!!! I got in a good, solid 3 miles. I stretched and foam rolled the poo pop out of my IT band all week until it felt decent enough to attempt a run. Hopefully it will stay not cranky. #teamsparkle
2 miles during my lunch hour it helps relieve stress. I’m looking forward to our last race of 2018 this weekend. #headsweatsforlife #keepacoolhead #headsweats #headsweatsambassador #teamsparkle #bondiband #merryflockingchristmas #runlikeagirl #instarunners #runningismytherapy
I might have spent my entire workout thinking about beer, but I did it and that’s all that matters, right? Day 10 of the #brewersadventcalendar and I earned it!
Had an awesome 15K on the Potomac River this weekend! Got my sub 2 hour goal (yay PR!) and felt great! It was chilly & I wore 3 layers! Looking forward to Princess Half in 76 days!! #runpacers #jingleallthewayrun #jinglealltheway15k #dailydoseofmagic #preppingforprincess #rundisney #rundc #dcruncrew #teamsparkle #princessfb2019 #medalmonday #strivingforthecity
My first pair of trail skips. It’s gonna be a good year of running in 2019. #newyear #altrarunning

#MotivationMonday What helps you push through a tough spot in a race: a puppy, post-race treat, sense of accomplishment, need to hit up a port-o-pottie, bragging rights or proving your inner critic wrong?

The #HonoluluMarathon experience continued today as they had finisher’s certificates and booklets for us to pick up today. I even met the winners of the race. It was a fun experience. It’s been sixteen years since I’ve been to #Hawaii . I won’t wait so long for my next trip. #Mahalo for a great weekend #Oahu . 🌸🌈❤️ . . . . . #Strong #Runner #MarathonTraining #WeRunSocial #ProCompression #KeepItTight #OrangeMud #TheDirtUnit #TrailRunner #UltraRunner #RunSanDiego #SweatPinkSD #RunnersCommunity #Fitness #IRunThisBody #IRunThisBody #100KTraining #RunStreak #WeRunThisHoliday #MilesAndPaceFam #TeamSparkle #IRun4Harrison

It’s #medalMonday and while I didn’t run this weekend, I’m going to take a minute to brag on these two.. My husband not only ran with our little girl, but he remembered to take pictures as our daughter rocked her 5K.. #fatherdaughter #family #love #runner #runnergirl
This is a special #MedalMonday for me. Not because it was my fastest marathon time- in fact it was my slowest. But what I saw out on the course reminded me of what running is truly about. The past two months, I’ve had to cut back on my mileage for health issues. And if I’m being honest, I was going through a “I don’t like running.” phase so I welcomed the forced “break.” I was still running to keep my streak going but I had stopped enjoying it. With the shorter runs, I started finding things to like about it again. When I was out on the #HonoluluMarathon course I saw so many of those things. I saw friends laughing and having a good time. I saw spectators cheering us on and providing entertainment. I saw two runners stop to help another runner as she threw up on the side of the course. I saw the elites speeding towards the finish. I saw people running their first marathon and I saw people running their fortieth. I saw beauty in nature I won’t see anywhere else. Whether they were running a sub-3 full or out there all day, they were giving it their all chasing a common goal. On the course, we were all marathoners. That community is a beautiful thing. And that’s why I love running ❤️ . . . . . . #Strong #Runner #MarathonTraining #WeRunSocial #ProCompression #KeepItTight #OrangeMud #TheDirtUnit #TrailRunner #UltraRunner #RunSanDiego #SweatPinkSD #RunnersCommunity #Fitness #IRunThisBody #IRunThisBody #100KTraining #RunStreak #WeRunThisHoliday #MilesAndPaceFam #TeamSparkle #IRun4Harrison #HonoluluMarathon #MotivationalMonday
This smile says it all on this #MedalMonday . This race proved that it’s attitude over e’rthing. While the clock may be the focus for some, I found victory in something else at @bmwdallasmarathon : I never went to the Deep, Dark Place. This is what I call that ugly headspace you visit during the later miles of the marathon...when the distance overwhelms you, your mind’s evil, insecure voice takes over, and you believe it cannot be surmounted. I kept looking for it. I stayed vigilant to fight it, but it never came. This race was all smiles and all confidence. With less training than usual, there was no shortage of hard moments. I dug deep, I kept pushing, and I knew the finish line would arrive in time. What a beautiful day to be alive and running. Thanks for sharing in it with me. What’s next? Something different for a while I think, but you know I’m here for the long run. The goal is big. It will take time...but, just like this medal, I’m going to be okay with earning it in as much time as I need. The hard makes it great, but so does the fun.
My #medalmonday post from yesterday’s 1st post #brokenankle 10K. About mile 4, it hurt, but I was determined to finish and I did, with a respectable time🎉🎉. My total miles traveled for the day was 7.9, which means that I didn’t really do much more than this race yesterday 😬😂. 2018 has been a roller coaster of a year, but a whole lot of growth has happened and 2019 is looking bright😍😍 #teamsparkle #262to5K #262to10K #wdwmarathonweekend
It’s been a too long since I’ve had a medal Monday ! It was a beautiful day to run the Holiday Half marathon - snow capped mountains in the background , hills that made me question my lack of training, and seeing friends at the finish line to complain about said hills. But running those miles rockin’ the cutest ugly sweater skirt made made it a holly jolly good time ! . . #runmelissarunrun #teamsparkle #inlandempirerunningclub #runrepublic #holidayhalf
Because last year on this day, we were in Honolulu and he finished his first (and only) marathon. #honolulu #hawaii #honolulumarathon #run #runner #marathon #marathoner #finisher #conqueredthedarkplace #teamsparkle
My coach was thoroughly entertained by my leggings today. Rainbows & unicorns make everything happier!! 5/12 #teamsparkle #villagecoachfitness #week2
One of the most amazing things about running is that it teaches us that we are braver than we believe, stronger than we seem & capable of so much more than we ever imagined. #teamsparkle
Pretty much everything froze this morning including my HAIR. 😳🥶 And it’s not even technically winter yet...
It's a Happy sparkle Monday from Pittsburgh Pennsylvania! Feeling blessed and grateful that I was able to spend a great weekend with my amazing family while my parents are recovering from illness and surgery. Do all you can to make wise choices and take care of yourself mentally and physically! Tell me what you will do today that will propel your health. #SparkleOn #EatRealFoodl #sparkleanewyou #NextLevel #Healthisinthemind #BeFearless #Makeithappen #Helpingothers #TeamSparkle #SparkleCommunity #FriendPower #LoseWeight #MindsetMatters
#RRGRunStreak Day 1662! Brrrr! Ok I'm over this cold y'all. I'm freezing and I don't like it! 🥶 On a good note...I dressed perfectly for my run today. 🙌🏻🏃🏻‍♀️ I know how to dress for weather in the 30's. It's the 40's that are tricky. 🙄 I have a busy day today. My preschoolers are performing their Christmas program this morning! It's always so cute!!! Now I'm going to try to warm up (and wake up) with some coffee! ❤️☕️ Happy Monday y'all!!! #run #roadrunnergirl #irun4Molly #run4God #runeveryday #werunsocial #fitfluential #sweatpink #girlsgonesporty #girlsrunfast #asics #teamsparkle #skirthusiast #runlove #applewatchseries3 #applewatch
It’s the last #medalmonday of 2018! A holiday race celebration wouldn’t be complete without Christmas cookies! Thanks @holiday_half for being half #38 for me. You may have almost killed me, but I’ll be back next year for more self torture.

#medalmonday Last half of the year and #42 lifetime. This year was an amazing journey of ups (sub 5 marathon) and downs (major sideline injury) but thanks to my PT, here I am running again!

It's the holidays, which means it's time for running the #holidayhalf10k , ugly sweater running skirts, and Santa donuts! 🎅 #foottrafficpdx #holidayhalf5k10k
Well I did it!! That smile in the 1st pic was for finishing. The 2nd picture shows brief disappointment in being so slow, by far my slowest 13.1. But friends I’m okay with my 2:33 half marathon. I finished!! Though my girl couldn’t run because she was sick, SHE is the reason I was out there. If she didn’t participate with #SRLA I wouldn’t be out there. I’m grateful. I’m also grateful for my boys and their endless support. The last pictures show all the messages I saw on my watch that Jim kept sending me. Every time I was walking or feeling bad I’d receive a Go! Go! Go!! Love my family!!!! #holidayhalf #30yearsofsrla #runnergirl #teamsparkle #sparkleathletic #zakhargirlsrunla
Such a great race! Super cold but lots of fun. Sooo many compliments on our costumes. 😍 Add this to your list. This was my 12th half, 5th this year and state number 10 done! 🏃‍♀️🎅🌊 #teamrundisney #teamsparkle #unicornsanta #beachbumsanta #krampusisscary #runningisfun Rehoboth Beach Seashore Half, DE
20 miles turned into 15 miles turned into fuck it. 👍🏻😂 Stupid inversion is messing with my lungs.
Here we only got one rule... Never ever let it cool... • . This HOT COCOA BAR is open 24 hours a day for the whole month of December... come on over... unlimited hot cocoa!!! Holiday traditions...are everything... my boys count on them every single year and we have quite a few. My hope is that when they have families of their own... they will continue these traditions! What’s one holiday tradition that you hope gets carried on?• . Ps... my run sucked... nothing like tears rolling down my face from the pain of shin splints... and I was too damn stubborn to quit... not a great picture moment... a pretty pathetic run asking myself “Why do I do this”... but chocolate makes the world smile... so enjoy...xo #farmhouseCHRISTMAS #hotCOCOA #polarEXPRESS
Today’s race mood. #holidayhalf
love when a race provides free photos ❤️💚 #mile12 #runlaughlin #damgreatrace #whorunsthisholiday #latergram
I didn’t run today. But what I did do was finish up some Christmas shopping, grocery shop, prep some lunches, make Rice Krispie treats, wrap some presents, make some presents and make this delicious dinner...from SCRATCH. Oh and to celebrate I’m having a beer. Maybe that glass should said “this beer tastes like I SKIPPED my morning workout” 🤷🏻‍♀️ I may not have run, but I feel productive. Now how do we figure out how to add a day between Sunday and Monday?
I am all grateful for today 😊 to everyone that showed up. That joined me live on instagram, that sent in questions, contributions. I am so humbled and grateful for my life and the grace to walk with my passion for life. The amazing people I talk to and meet everyday. Sparkleforsicklecell Is my dream come true and I pray it only puts smiles on people's faces and helps me have a bigger, amazing family, spread awareness, and celebrate amazing, unique individuals( STARS) ⭐.

Half marathon #35 is a wrap! No pics from the course today because my focus was on running a good race! So, just a couple of start line pics, and after race pics with my bling and the #instafamous @runannie ! I have continually missed her at every race until today, and it was so wonderful to meet such a great athlete and super cool person! Annie, “You’re the best!” 😍 - On another note, I get lots of compliments on my outfits and lipstick at almost every race, but today I got the BEST COMPLIMENT EVER! A running coach on the course with another participant said, “You’ve got great form and you’re looking strong! Go get it, girl!” I’ve been working on my form for more than a year! That comment felt so good, and it motivated me to keep doing what I was doing and finish strong! 👊🏾 - #halfmarathon #runningmotivation #instafriends #racecation #runcation #running #runners #runningcommunity #runnersofinstagram #womenrunning #womensrunningcommunity #womenrunners #blackrunners #blkrunners #blackgirlsrun #bgr #rundallas #bmwdallasmarathon #dallasmarathon #teamsparkle
Some days, all you can ask for is a finish. After marathon number three, I understand the meaning of the #AlohaSpirit ❤️🌈🌸 I’ll have more to say about today later but for now, I’m going to enjoy the rest of the time I have in #Oahu . . . . . #Strong #Runner #MarathonTraining #WeRunSocial #ProCompression #KeepItTight #OrangeMud #TheDirtUnit #TrailRunner #UltraRunner #RunSanDiego #SweatPinkSD #RunnersCommunity #Fitness #IRunThisBody #IRunThisBody #100KTraining #RunStreak #WeRunThisHoliday #MilesAndPaceFam #TeamSparkle #IRun4Harrison #HonoluluMarathon
Dallas, you were great!!! What a beautiful day to run! I achieved of my goal of being awesome 😉 and proud to report I set a new post-baby PR by more than 11 minutes with a time of 2:46:11! 🙌🏻 (I’m still 27 minutes away from my real PR but #life .) Special thanks to everyone who texted me words of encouragement today - especially my guys at home. 💕💕💕 #redcoyoteracing #werunsocial #irunthisbody #motherrunner #teamsparkle #beawesome #bmwdallasmarathon @visit_dallas
So I was waiting to post because I was trying to figure out what I wanted to say. I still can’t really put the right words to it. Today marks an occasion. I RAN MY VERY FIRST HALF MARATHON!!!!! My best friend @yogabean ran it with me and it was epic and amazing. We did the @deckerchallenge and for real, the hills were no joke. But we did it. We are both FINISHERS!!!! We did it!! 2:26:25.6 was the official time and I am just on cloud 9. This runner’s high is gonna last a while.
State Number Six: ☑️. Thank you all for your cheers. 💗
#throwback to last year's Honolulu Marathon. Yes, it was a blast. I'm cheering for all you wonderful Oahu folks 💜💜💜 Have fun and kick butt! #honolulumarathon #teamsparkle #beawesome #motherrunners #strollerwarriors #runhappy #runhawaii #runningwithfriends #marathon

This morning’s #HolidayHalf course was challenging yet delightful all at the same time. Sometimes you have to put in hard work to be rewarded with gorgeous views! That’s a wrap for 2018. 🎅🏼🏃🏻‍♀️🎄❄️
12 intentionally slow, easy miles today as I navigated the cold, the snow, and even a couple miles of trails in the woods. ❄️🌲🏃‍♀️ I had fun this morning while trying to not be bothered by how slow I was going. I'm shifting gears for a few months and focusing on distance and consistency rather than getting faster. . . . #50ktraining #ultramarathon #ultratraining #jackpotultrarunningfestival #marathontraining #weightloss #weightlossjourney #PCOSweightloss #weightlossinspiration #nerdfitness #nerdfitnessacademy #running #run #halfmarathontraining #werunsocial #teamsparkle #irun #instarun #instarunner #igrunners #runnersofinstagram #runstagram #runhappy #womensrunningcommunity #iifym #fitness #fitfam #motivation #macros

Great time at the @hmf_events Run for a Claus! It was a chilly but fun 2.5 miles run through New London, CT. So many Santas! Afterwards L and I got some delicious BBQ from @chesterbbq.

Running by yourself in the cold Isn't fun no matter how you dress it up. I try to hold off on running indoors at the track until January. . I'm starting to doubt I'll make it that long. I hate being cold, I hate the frostbite damage to my face screeching in pain. I hate falling and sliding on ice. . Stick a pair of snowshoes on me and I can tromp around for hours in - 40. Perhaps, just perhaps it's time to change things up. . #runnersofinstagram #igrunners #runnersofig #teamsparkle #uglysweaterrun #cold #snow #notmyday #timetobreakouttheskipants #christmas2018 🎄🎅🎁
