100 happy days day 11. Got a much needed run to clear my mind (and body!) today at my favorite state park my team runs at (: ran my favorite trail around the lake. I couldn’t help but stop and take in the gorgeous water, weather, and scenery.

100 happy days day 8. Had a good pre-meet run up on my track balcony all to myself today. Honestly that’s just what I needed after a very long week!

100 happy days day 3. After one of the most stressful nights I’ve had in a long time it was nice to get out and run at one of my favorite places. This trail will forever be my favorite Sunday for the next 4 years.

Foot rant… more like positivity outlook!

Being a runner with an arthritic foot surly has it’s struggles when the wether can’t decide if it wants to stay 20, 50, -10, or just above 0 in the matter of days. Being this is happening a flare has been triggered and my foot has been uber tight again eeek! And of course it’s just when I’m starting of feel like I’m stronger than ever and I’m ready to have a great outdoor season but I’m not letting my foot hold me back. It doesn’t hurt, my orthotics have been gods, I wear them all the time to prevent this, I’m even heating my problem joint as I’m typing this! I’m not going to act like everything’s the end of the world anymore it’s not worth it. I’m sick of not being at my best performance just because I let something get into my head, it’s time to get back to my head strong malicious self when I’m running that I was in the summer and I know it’s back, averaging 7:40-47pace per run is certainly showing it. Here’s to beating the odds, and not letting arthritis slow me down anymore.

Immmmmm Baaaaaackkkkkkkk!
I apologize for falling off the face of Tumblr… a lot was on my shoulders with my feet and well im frustrated with my major.
So well ill fill you all in!
Ive been out of my boot for about 2 weeks now, and I’m slowly bur surely getting there, i can as of  yesterday i can run 2 miles a day and do drills. I luckily didnt loose much of my fitness so i should be actually as fast if not faster than i was when i got hurt! 
My team won our confrence (PSACs) and were running in regionals tomorrow and were picked to win! So that means our team will be running at nationals! were SO hyped! but at the same time im really upset since i was in the top 7 and then i got hurt so that could have been me…. but hey! every thing happens for a reason right!?.
The path is never defined. You may think you have it figured out, but sometimes you see a rough trail calling your name and you just need to take it with all your faith.

TRANSFORMATION TUESDAY

I felt the need to do something since ive been so negative lately, and i dont like it.

anyway. this post is roughly a years difference, youd think it was like 4.

i look incredibly healthier, stronger, and well older (lol) 

and nevertheless i am faster. i remember the race on the left i ran a 24 high, i was  joke my senior year. Now i break 21s like its nothing.

All it takes is determination, discipline, drive,  and a bit of patience too. 

being injured sucks.

Literally looking for every little thing to keep me positive right now. 

Turf Toe can honestly go fuck off.

Sunday Long Run Day!

well i feel like making this since well i haven’t wrote on here in a few days so ill tell you about my run today!

So today, like every sunday i ran 10 mi but we approached it a little different today. I had to do my first 6 easy at 8 min mile pace and then negative slit the last 4 in 7:30s. 

Nevertheless i held my first 6 beautifully, and when the last 4 came around i kicked it in… i hit 7:23, 7:29; 7:12, and 7:06

and i did this run with 2 hours of sleep. how? i have no clue but i actually felt really good!

anywayyyyy, I hope you all had wonderful runs today! 

keep on running my runners! 

FIRST COLLEGIATE MEET RECAP (yesterday)

Hey guys!

As you all know yesterday was my first collegiate meet.

I know you’re all itching to know the low-down so here ya go:

so our season opener happened to be on my home course against 2 other teams in out confrence. my coach picked the 5k race distance this year so i was super pumped. nevertheless, i couldnt race the way i exactly wanted to. i was given a race plan to hold 6:45/mi pace until the last 1k where i should run >3:59. so i went out conservative… to an extent. i did go out in a 6:17 and quick soon found my pace. as the last 1k rolled around  was keeping up with two girls from one of the other schools. i decided to do what i now do best. i sat and kicked the last 200 m. my coach was SCREAMING, he was so hyped. i ended up out kicking them by quite a bit and i ended up, you guessed it… I PRED AGAIN!!! i ran a 20:41. a 15 second pr. ! im so hyped. i cant wait to see how fast im going to be at my next meet in 2 weeks.

well heres some pics for your enjoyment:

I hope all of your races/runs went well!

keep on working hard my runners ! (:<3
