nycrunningmama Gorgeous sunrise this morning at West Point overlooking the Hudson River. It was a spur of the moment trip with the little guys yesterday afternoon to our alma mater to watch the Army Hockey Game (my husband is a former captain of the team) and to spend a night/morning at the Hotel Thayer. Hope you are having a beautiful Sunday! #westpoint #goarmy #winter #sunrise #army 20h

nycrunningmama Just me and my footsteps disrupting the freshly fallen snow. First time I've run in this much snow! #run #instarunners #snow #nyc #bostonmarathon #longrun 2d
  •   bkrunsdenver @nycrunningmama @sprinkleshikes Thanks for the info! I do have great trail running shoes. A friend of mine in Boulder wears ice spikes to run in snow and ice and I've just been wondering how the work. I joined a running group and my first run with them is on Thursday. They said I'll need a headlamp so I have that but I'd just hate to fall on my tush on my first run! Fortunately I'll be safe this week though since I think Denver is in the 50s and 60s all week. 2d
  •   runningteza Wow! 2d
  •   pam_w719 Beautiful! Snow runs are fun! 2d
  •   sosuper I am amazed at your dedication! I saw our 8" and turned off the alarm. 2d
  •   prissyrunner222 Pretty. 1d
  •   firstgraderforever @nycrunningmama thanks for the morning run inspiration! Had an 11 planned saw the snow outside thought ehhh don't want too saw your pic and thought I can do this #newenglandrunning 1d

nycrunningmama Frozen to the bone and completely soaked...but I did it! 16.3 miles in the snow, sleet and rain. Half on the roads, half on the trails. 100% with heart. Boston, I'm coming for you. #findyourstrong #instarunners #run #winter #snow #bostonmarathon 2d

nycrunningmama Got tagged by @mileposts for the #outtakechallenge!! This was from my first 5k (that I raced) at around mile 2.8 when I was thinking "what the crap did I sign up for?" I think it's safe to say I hated life at this point. I tag @ashtonmeg218 @runemz @runfargirl @stuftmama!! #run #instarunners #5k #findyourstrong #womensrunning 2d

nycrunningmama This is where I do my best thinking...and where most of my dreams are born #trails #nyc #snow #winter #instarunners #fitness 4d
  •   soul_healthy It's hard for me to think of a place like this in New York! How beautiful! I'm from the South, so old dirt roads are a dime a dozen. I'm so glad you have a sweet piece of "country" to run on! It looks so tranquil. 4d
  •   runfargirl Love it! 4d
  •   lauraroseallen Do you run by yourself? The isolation of winter running, especially in the am, scares me. Perhaps I watch too much news. 4d
  •   prissyrunner222 Love this picture!!! 4d
  •   christinaponz Gorgeous@ 4d
  •   mrsnatyg As an island girl I'm a cold weather wimp... Beautiful but brrrrr #runninginsidetoday 4d
  •   nycrunningmama @lauraroseallen I do...I never run on the trails when it's dark or just getting light. These trails are pretty short in length and are beside a popular walking path in the park, so there's usually people around. I also always run with my phone these days just to be on safe side. 3d

nycrunningmama My favorite way to display my special medals. The fish/flower bowl makes it seem more decorative than hanging them on a wall #bostonmarathon #ironman #lamarathon #honolulumarathon #books #run #instarunners #womensrunning 5d

nycrunningmama My reward for early morning running. Attempted a smile but face is frozen after 8 miles in 16 degrees ️🌝 #nofilter #run #nyc #winter #instarunners #findyourstrong 5d
  •   jessfit654 Ohhh even chillier there than here! Was about 22 degrees on our run, scarily felt 'warm' to last Wednesday's 12 degree run! Awesome job 5d
  •   runladylike Nice work mama. The sunrise is ALWAYS worth the early alarm :) 5d
  •   laurakate530 Did two miles, walked half of it but something is better than nothing ;) 5d
  •   dressysweats It's so hard to smile when your face is numb!! 5d
  •   milesandblessings Awesome job going outside!!!!!!! I did my run this morning too because we are supposed to get snow starting soon. 5d
  •   bluefinapps Great job! The view is amazing. 5d

nycrunningmama Enjoying a day off from running with a butt kicking trainer workout. 70 total min including 50 min "A Very Dark Place" workout from the Sufferfest. Husband ran on treadmill and little guys played and watched Super Why! #bostonmarathon #bike #crosstrain #marathontraining #findyourstrong 1w
  •   lccotter Nice! 1w
  •   nycrunningmama @kericannon @mainegirl2runs oh man. I don't know. I'm experimenting a bit this cycle with more cross training. Last cycle, my coach had me running 7 days/week (one run was a short 5-6 miles) but it seems like it was too much for me...my body seems to want at least one day of no running. Today is a rest or cross train day. Since yesterday's "long run" wasn't really long (12) I figured I could do a harder cross training workout than in coming weeks when training ramps up. Ideally, I still fit in a workout like this during week on one of my easier/shorter run days. I hope this helps! We will see how it plays out in April! 1w
  •   mainegirl2runs @nycrunningmama Thanks for your input! I appreciate it! 1w
  •   ncapone I was hoping you didn't run outside today. Phew! Love your reflection in the screen. Hot momma! 1w

nycrunningmama It's easy to choose 20 degree weather over the treadmill when these views await...thankful every day that I live where I do. #run #instarunners #nyc #winter #bostonmarathon #findyourstrong 1w
  •   katiesfitscript Ahh your view is so perfect 1w
  •   nycrunningmama @southernharmony83 it takes some practice...usually at the start of winter, I overdress or underdress at least a few times. Today, I wore full length pants (fitted tights), a long sleeve shirt, jacket, visor, hat and mittens. The jacket is great b/c it keeps me super warm and the heat inside me! 1w
  •   southernharmony83 Lol! Good stuff! I guess it's just something I need to just get out and try! Won't quite have views like that though!! So glad hat and mittens are on the list I must say! 😬 1w
  •   patriciadovej1 Are you running at Gateway or Wolf's Pond Park??? 1w

nycrunningmama Wind chill of 18 degrees and I could not be happier to be out there running again, watching the sun rise! And love that I shared a few miles with @momsgottarun #instarunners #run #nyc #sunrise #findyourstrong #winter #running #fitness 2w

nycrunningmama I developed a pretty nasty tooth infection and had to get a tooth pulled + bone graft. And have had fever over 102 for a week. Not fun at all.
BUT I am feeling a million times better and even managed a run and some core work today.
These bright @onzie pants and @saucony shoes (released date: spring '15) are making today brighter. #kinetarelay #onzie #run #instarunners #womensrunning

nycrunningmama I'm usually an early morning runner, but I've been loving my night runs the past week...gorgeous view tonight for 8 chilly miles 🌚 #instarunners #run #marathontraining #garminfree #findyourstrong #nofilter #moon #nyc 3w
  •   calrifkin 3w
  •   milesandblessings Wow! Switching from morning to night is hard! I can go from morning to lunch time pretty easily... But after 5 I loose all motivation. 3w
  •   prairierunnergirl Evening running is definitely where it's at. Nothing better than capstoning my day with a run :) 3w
  •   nycrunningmama @milesandblessings I have a little coffee about 30-45 min before!! Lol 3w
  •   nycrunningmama @itsamarython I have so much respect for you night runners! It takes every ounce of motivation to get out the door after a full day!!! 3w
  •   milesandblessings @nycrunningmama Hahaha! That is great! Whatever it takes! :) happy 2015! 3w
  •   itsamarython I love that. I've never been classified as a Night Runner, but I definitely am! Totally owning that title this winter!! Nice job tonight, mama! 3w
  •   katiesfitscript Are you living in the city? I thought you lived upstate 3w

nycrunningmama One day this room will be filled with bookcases and reading chairs but for now it's the best use of space in our house - a playroom for the boys!! #playroom #toys #desk #home 3w

  •   megruns262 Looks like mine!! Haha 3w
  •   runninghood I keep saying the same thing about my formal living room that will eventually be our library of sorts. But for now (even though we have a bonus room upstairs), my kids use it as their tumble room.. And the formal dining room is an art room! 3w
  •   paceofme I love it! 3w
