I RUN BECAUSE I CAN
I'll never take that for granted again. Back in July of this year, I ran my first marathon. My Grandma, may she rest in peace, was my why. She had a stroke three years ago and lost her ability to walk. I wasn't a runner then. But I did tell her a few days before the race that this run was for her. Even though I will have more why's, she will always be one of them. During the race, I knew that she would give anything to even have the ability to simply walk by my side. As I put one foot in front of the other and my left foot was screaming 'stop', I imagined her next to me. .
Picture from this mornings 37°F run. How cold is it where you are and what keeps you going?

____________________________________________________ , dehnen, Kräftigung, Blackroll, Diclofenac und was ich die letzten Tage so alles probiert habe... Trotzdem bin ich mit der Genesung meines Läuferknies noch lange nicht zufrieden.
Laufen wollte/musste ich heute trotzdem mal wieder! Mit dabei: Meine neue Kniebandage von Zamst, welche die Innenrotation des Unterschenkels verhindern und so den tractus iliotibialis entlassen soll.
15 Kilometer konnte ich so zwar schmerzfrei absolvieren, allerdings hatte ich danach wieder leichte Probleme.

The picture is from Sunday's race where I really got to work. See my average heart rate🤤
@coachbennett thank you for the Next Run in the NRC app. I'm feeling like after working through injuries and still working through some injuries this is a great place for anyone to start including myself. Just honestly taking it one run at a time and remembering that every run has a purpose. It's not always about the time, the distance or even our pace. It's about how we feel in the moment and how we feel after a run. Thank you so much for showing and teaching us who remain coachable that running doesn't always have to be about the numbers. Thank you!
We’re sure everyone has experienced pain when running before, whether this is during a race or training. It’s important to remember this doesn’t last, but the pride after completing that run does!

Ma 2018.12.12 sikerült egy félmaratoni távot lefutnom igaz futógépen.
Aminek nagyon örülök hogy ezt sikerült 2 órában teljesíteni.
Öröm és boldogság... Béke - Peace :)
I must say that Singapore Marathon has improved a lot with their execution last weekend. Thanks a lot to all the volunteers and supporters who helped us finish the race despite the humidity. This was a special day for me. A day that I no longer wanted to chase any PB or PR. It was just pure joy that I was able to run with Ate @zarahkay05 and cross the finish line together within the COT. We even had to assist a teenager along the course who was really in a bad shape and couldn't breath properly. Thank you to the three guys and two other ladies who called for medics, acted with first aid, and offered a bottle of water. It was for a brief moment that I realise I didn't care anymore about my race timing and just extend a little help to a fellow runner. I do hope that he has recovered well from that incident. I was really glad to spend my time appreciating everything around me. I even had to stop and took picture of the sky at dawn. Sometimes it really isn't how fast we finish but rather how our journey was before we even reach the finish line. It's ok at times to take things slowly and easily. Believe me, it's really alright. Progress even if it's only this much is still a progress. Don't compare yourself with others. Uplift and encourage each and everyone for the good of all. Be inspired and motivated at all times. Learn from all your experiences and grow from them. Don't be afraid to take new challenges as you go thru life. Lastly, be KIND to all. Enjoy the rest of 2018. Recharge and let's get ready for new goals on 2019! 💕🤗
👏🏽Pull 👏🏽 Pull 👏🏽 Pull 👏🏽
The only running action should be the PULL. Use your hamstrings to PULL your feet off the ground to avoid two major running faults:
🔸RUN FASTER AND LONGER: You'll be using your glutes and hammies, some of the most powerful muscles in your body, instead of relying on your much smaller hip flexors.
🔸AVOID INJURY: You'll be keeping your body in alignment and NOT landing out in front, which causes most run-related injuries.
Want our full training plan including pull drills so you can run better, faster, stronger? Join our team to prepare for your next race, increase your endurance, and improve your overall health. Join by the end of the month to lock in the $19/month price. Price will increase in 2019. Link in bio.

On Saturday, 1,300 runners crossed the finish line for the fourth annual @runmillinocket marathon & half marathon, battling through the 10 degree temperature and a biting wind. 🏃🏼🏃🏼♀️ Here’s a preview of some of our pics from the race; click the link in our bio to see the rest!

#holidayrunstreak day 2️⃣ Forgot to turn on my gps until 1/4 mile in, so we will call today 1.?? miles. A blizzard is headed in overnight, and it’s supposed to lay down a nice layer of ice first before it drops 4-10” of snow (which is a lot for the Midwest), so we’ll see what tomorrow looks like. 🤷🏼♀️ #rwrunstreak

I remember being 14 yrs old, fresh out of the hospital, sitting in my first outpatient occupational therapy session and being SO frustrated. I was mad that I had to sit and relearn a myriad of simple tasks like tying my shoes, and getting increasingly frustrated at how difficult it was proving to be. The one handed bow was different, I didn't like the way it looked, there was a single "bunny ear" and my OT encouraged me to use a "tool" to help, (essentially it looked like a sewing needle with a loop on the end, shoved into the handle of a potato peeler) 😐
I didn't want to have to carry around a tool, and I didn't want elastic laces. I just wanted to be able to tie my shoes again like I had always done.
I didn't go back to OT after that day. The idea of someone with zero one-armed life experience teaching me how to navigate the world one-handed just didn't sit right with me. I was determined to tie my shoes the "normal" way, and now I do! & on a good day just as fast as I did with two lol. (Thinking about posting a tutorial/vid??) Anyway my point is that it didn't happen over night!!! It took me an ENTIRE YEAR.
That's a whole year of asking for help, avoiding tennis shoes, and squeezing my feet into shoes that were already laced tight because I refused to untie my laces.
Now I tie my shoes without having to think about it, and I only remember that it's different when someone catches me doing it and are like "wait... whaaaaaat 😮" patience is a practice, consider it an exercise for your mind, if every time you want to give up, you train yourself to feed your mind with one encouraging thought, it will literally change the way your brain functions, and soon enough, you won't have the doubt. ...All of my fellow amputees know that losing a limb just leads to increased lev
