nycrunningmama Sundress, perfectly blue skies and the smell of the BBQ - we are both so excited for the unofficial start of summer! #BBQ #summer #sundress #memorialdayweekend 4d
  •   mysliceoflife79 So pretty! 4d
  •   demetria_hale @mohl262 I just did all the upper body exercises that I could find and think of to do. I would even do donkey kicks (the boot is a nice weight ;) same with core exercises. When you're cleared to start running. Go slow! I started out walking first, not even a mile for about 2 weeks. Then slowly increased. I think it was at least another 3 weeks before I actually ran. I wanted to be sure the ankle was strong enough. Been going since. Be patient and trust the process. You'll be back out there in no time. :) 4d

nycrunningmama "It's never too late to follow your dreams." I finally got to have dinner last night with Ruth (@mamafizz56) my "cadet" for the @saucony 26Strong Program. She discovered running later in life and has begun training for her first marathon (at age 59!). She's an amazing example and inspiration for all of us that it really is never too late to chase down a dream!! We will train together - and run the Chicago Marathon side by side in October!
And it's extra special because she is the mother in law of @runningbun!! #nevertoolate #dream #dreambig #run #instarunners @runcompetitor

nycrunningmama Incorporated strength work religiously last cycle. Plan to keep it up as training slowly picks up again. I've been loving the Mountain Athletic App from @thenorthface - it gives me strength workouts twice/week and holds me accountable! #spon #itrainfor #run #instarunners #nycmarathon #latergram 6d

1st run all week. Felt a little pull in hamstring after #Airbnbbkhalf so took most of week off to avoid it getting worse or prolonging injury.
6 happy, pain-free miles today!! #restfirst #runlater #instarunners #run #26strong

  •   cyu888 This looks so peaceful! Glad you're feeling ok! 6d
  •   sessary827 Oh duh! Ok it's the conference house! We took our Christmas pics there, now I know the trail!!! How many miles is it? It's prob about a mile and half for you to actually run to the conference house and then how long is the trail? @nycrunningmama 6d
  •   reginamcwhirter Looks like a great spot for a run 6d

nycrunningmama Exactly one month ago and still riding the Boston Marathon high...so went ahead and booked hotel room for 2016!! And my mom and dad are going to come with me! #bostonmarathon #run #boston2016 #findyourstrong #instarunners #womensrunning Photo credit: the awesome @pavementrunner! 7d
  •   upstaterun You look so happy, love this! 7d
  •   jennellefsen Love this picture! 7d
  •   reginamcwhirter Great idea, think I'll do the same. Question for you @nycrunningmama, did you switch hotels or keep the same you had this year? 7d
  •   nycrunningmama @reginamcwhirter switched! I'm staying closer to start/finish. Prices are not as much $ right now so I'm paying less/night and staying closer!! 7d
  •   amandajojones Can I ask what kind of gloves/sleeves you are wearing and if you like them? I am in the market. 7d
  •   nycrunningmama @amandajojones the gloves are Nike - super old (I think 7 yrs?). I couldn't find my Saucony ones when I was packing! The arm sleeves are Saucony - love them. They are thin but fitted and have thumbholes which keeps them in place for me! 7d
  •   martina_nyc I'd should probably do the same, but I still need to book flight AND hotel for Chicago! I guess I'm just a tiny bit behind...! 7d
  •   procompression So much love. 6d

nycrunningmama SO proud of Jen and Janet!! Jen set a big PR today - by almost 3 minutes! Goal for day was sub-2. Finished in 1:56:01 with a massive negative split! First mile = slowest and mile 13= second fastest! BOOM!
Such a fun and special day running 13.1 miles with these ladies! @momsgottarun @janetb731 #instarunners #run #findyourstrong #womensrunning #Airbnbbkhalf

nycrunningmama Solo parenting + packed day = only time to run was 8:30pm. Grateful to have a treadmill in basement!
First speed since Boston. 2 up, 4 tempo, 2 down. Really pleased with this workout especially considering I was ready to skip it and go to bed. 6:53, 6:48, 6:44, 6:35 for tempo (6:45 average). #run #instarunners #womensrunning #findyourstrong

nycrunningmama Trail miles with a view of the beach and water = heaven. 8 miles to start off Monday! #run #instarunners #nyc #26strong #findyourstrong 2w
  •   izzygabriella3 @nycrunningmama Your advice is needed. I have Brooklyn 1/2 coming up this Saturday. Last time I ran was a week ago (9 miles) I have been sick with a bad sinus infection since. I'm slowly getting better. I'm hoping to get a couple of small runs this week. Do you think it would be best just not to do it or this would good enough? 2w
  •   marythorson Heaven!!!! Yes! 2w
  •   nycrunningmama @izzygabriella3 I am so sorry that you haven't been feeling good :/ I definitely think you can run this weekend assuming you feel better and can run a couple of times this week. You may have to adjust whatever goal times you had - not b/c of loss of fitness but if you are still not 100%, it will be hard to push yourself as hard as you can. My advice would be to take it easy this week - keep the runs shorter as the week goes on and keep pace easy! Hope this helps! Best of luck if you decide to run! 2w
  •   izzygabriella3 @nycrunningmama Thank you so much! :) 2w
  •   endurestrong 2w
  •   mariah_cb where is this? 2w
  •   livehealthonline Excellent trail inspo! 2w
  •   izzygabriella3 @nycrunningmama Thank you so much for your advice. I finished the race!!! 2:01 I'm feeling good and so happy I did it. You are so sweet, hope to meet you someday :) 2w
