mocaisaloca Even though I've finished 2 LA marathons, both were completed while injured. Today I ran my first ever pain free 17 miles and now I feel more confident for my next 26.2 journey. I'm coming for you LA! Third times a charm, right? 6d
  •   eli_apa Monica you keep inspiring me! I seriously need to run more! You get it girl! 5d
  •   frontrunnersla congratulations. Keep up the good work! 5d
  •   robertherrera3 @mocaisaloca thats amazing! How did you manage 2 Fulls while injured? Also, when is the last day to use your NYR code? 13h
  •   mocaisaloca @robertherrera3 My first LA Marathon I basically had to walk/run because of horrible knee pain. During my training for this past year's LA Marathon I pulled my groin in January but didn't want to bail out. I was only able to run half and had to walk the second half. Frustrating but was determined to train for another one, so here I am :) Oh and my code NYRMONICA15 expires next Friday, 12.31.14! 11h
  •   robertherrera3 @mocaisaloca that is amazing that you managed to pull through with that pain. Both my knees are damaged from years of akateboarding and a hip injury but i try and forget the pain while i run. Awesome! i have a few days left to register!:) hope to officially meet there if not at Nike Pasadena! 10h
  •   gregknottlemond Wonderful!!! 2h

mocaisaloca "Running 26.2?" - old man on bike "No, only 14." -me "ONLY?!" - old man HA! And I'm totally impressed that he knew how many miles a marathon is. || Obligatory fall photo but I couldn't help how well the leaves accent my Nike Pegasus #14miler #runLA #oldmanknowswhatsup 3w

mocaisaloca #GivingTuesday || Last year I was able to raise over $1,500 for my ThinkCure! LA Marathon Fundraiser to help fund cancer research at the City of Hope and Children's Hospital Los Angeles, and it was all because of people like YOU! So I'm back at it again! If you believe in this cause, please consider donating any amount (You can give up that $5 Starbucks just once, right?...) to my fundraising goal. You can visit my page at tinyurl.com/mocamarathon (direct URL is in my bio). It's not easy, but because of the continued support from the running community we are making a difference. Thank you! #runningforthosewhocant 4w

mocaisaloca We are the movement || Were you able to support Small Business Saturday today? Thanks to @fleetfeetranchocucamonga, Rick got properly fitted for a new pair of running shoes (Those Nike Structures ) and I FINALLY got a Fleet Feet dri-fit tank to sport. #ShopSmall 4w
  •   mocaisaloca @runningmona13 They sure are! Each Fleet Feet is locally owned and operated . I feel like the entire running community out here knows Dave and Eva, they are so amazing! And yes, Rick's first half is NYR 4w
  •   runningmona13 Oh, well Fleet Feet is a franchise company, like McDonalds and Subway. But I know what u mean, it's a different kind of small business, I suppose. Either way happy Rick got his running shoes finally!! 4w
  •   mocaisaloca @runningmona13 Yup, it helps the local owners to follow a franchise model. Each store is different which benefits their own communities. Oh, and Rick had running shoes already but just finally got properly fitted haha. Only his right foot overpronates and gives him problems 4w
  •   runningmona13 Aawww, tell him he'll be ok! I totally overpronate too, with the right pair of shoes he could run the world! 4w
  •   fleetfeetranchocucamonga Hi @runningmona13, Monica is correct, we are owner/ operators, not an investment group. Each store is free to choose how they serve their community, not like McDonalds or Subway at all. Total different franchise business model. 3w
  •   runningmona13 @fleetfeetranchocucamonga Hi! Yeah when I first saw this post I read the history and business stats of the company. True, McDonalds and Subway are huge billion dollar franchises Fleet Feet is still in the millions. I was referring to the Fleet Feet company as a whole not each individual location. But reading up on it gave me a new appreciation and insight into how each store is able to represent itself in the community. 3w
  •   fleetfeetranchocucamonga @runningmona13, thanks. It's not just the size & $$$, some franchises dictate that you buy supplies/product from them, which they make profit from. We have no such requirement. 3w
  •   runningmona13 @fleetfeetranchocucamonga I read that too. That's awesome! 3w
