nycrunningmama I just ran the fastest mile of my life!!
Official time: 5:42, 4th overall female, 1st in AG
Not ideal 1-mile race conditions (20 degrees, 10mph headwind and snowing), but man, that was both excruciatingly painful and exhilarating!

nycrunningmama 7.5 miles this AM...Modified workout b/c I'm too sore from all the walking the last few days. And because I'm just too exhausted to get up at 5am on vacation. And b/c I'm trying to enjoy vacation. And because I can't do it all. #keepingitreal

nycrunningmama 15,000 steps and 9.5 miles filled with warmth, palm trees and waterfalls. 🌞 Now we are off to the Animal Kingdom! #gogarmin @garminfitness #run #instarunners #disneyworld #womensrunning #findyourstrong #vivosmart 5d
  •   runraquel Have SO much fun! Enjoy the warmth! 5d
  •   ktpt23 I have timeshare there! Hope you are enjoying yourself here in sunny, warm Florida! :) 5d
  •   glitterkitty02 Oh WOW!!!! ️Enjoy!!!! @nycrunningmama 5d
  •   lccotter Yay 5d
  •   marcyezekiel You know. That's what I'm figuring out. I may return mine for this 5d
  •   marcyezekiel And do you use this for tracking distance/pace? 5d
  •   nycrunningmama @marcyezekiel this one is not GPS - but it does give you distance - when I run "easy", I just wear this so I can focus on running easy and not worrying about pace. The @garmin Vivoactive combines a gps with an activity tracker - that may be what you are looking for (I haven't tried that one yet!) 5d

nycrunningmama So many reasons why this run almost didn't happen. One reason why it did - - - > BOSTON! Can't say it was enjoyable. Or warm. Or fast. But it's done. First 20 miler of cycle in books. #bostonmarathon #womensrunning #run #findyourstrong #instarunners #instarun #running 1w
  •   marythorson Yay!!! Great job! 1w
  •   vikkifeggs You go girl!! I get soo frustrated running with snow/ice on the ground, coupled with the extreme temps we've been having... I almost took it to the treadmill! Totally miserable, but it's done! No Boston for me, but I'll be running my 2nd NJ Marathon the weekend after :-) 1w
  •   chicrunner Man you're way ahead of me I'm doing my 13 miler this week 1w
  •   accote87 1w
  •   joedisomma 1w
  •   nycrunningmama @vikkifeggs oh I was in same boat! Really close to getting on treadmill but I ran so much on it the last 7-10 days that I know I wouldn't have lasted. Ugh. I plan to be NJ cheering this year! 1w
  •   nycrunningmama @runfargirl it's funny - it was 15 degrees warmer today than long run few weeks ago and yet I couldn't warm up today. I was cold and miserable the entire run. How are you feeling? 1w
  •   runfargirl @nycrunningmama crazy how that happens! I remember a freezing cold 11 degree run last year, but this year negative temps don't bother me...maybe because I'm already so uncomfortable from pregnancy haha! I'm ok my low-back/SI joint is bothering me. Went to chiro this week and massage tomorrow. Ran 3 mi this AM but they weren't very comfortable:/ 1w

nycrunningmama Celebrating 5 amazing years of marriage (in a couple of months) to this guy. Sometimes love hits you on top of your head when you're least expecting it. For us, it was while we were deployed to Iraq, during 18-20 mile long runs together #love #marriage #army #valentinesday @angelinastottenvilla 2w

nycrunningmama Always choose the hillier route in training - it will make you so much stronger on race day. I will not let Heartbreak Hill break my heart 8 easy-paced miles - 500 feet of climbing! #hills #bostonmarathon #instarunners #run #nyc #womensrunning #findyourstrong #fitness 2w
  •   mrsryderruns You are going to do so well and this is my inspiration! Seems like I'll never get there but I'm encouraged by this 2w
  •   natalietate You have such great hills! They're hard to find where I live. 2w
  •   laurakate530 What did you use to train for a half marathon? (I'm training for one) Did you have some apps or devices that really helped you? 2w
  •   moremilesandsmiles Every route I choose is very hilly! 2w
  •   marythorson Way to go! In Colorado hills are everywhere I turn. I can't avoid them! But I have felt myself getting stronger! 2w
  •   nycrunningmama @laurakate530 there are some great training plans online! I kind of did it backwards and ran my first marathon then my first half! Lol 2w

Hamstring issues keep flaring up. @nycrunningmama I'll hit their website and see what tips they have to offer. I don't think my hubby will let me buy a new TM specifically to race the course! But that's a pretty awesome feature to have!!!! 3w
