runningrachel No ifs, ands, or buts allowed. JUST DO IT! 🏼🏼 This was my morning motto as I hopped on my treadmill to run a few miles before the busy day started. #nomoreexcuses 18h

runningrachel BALANCE is something that I am constantly working on.

Balancing motherhood, working/profession, blogging, faith, fitness and more. Finding and striving for balance is a daily struggle.
Today I am supposed to share my favorite standing balance pose for the @fitapproach #stopdropandyoga #sweatpink #prAnastyle #poseoftheday to help launch the @prana #prAnaspringstyle

Instead I am sharing my favorite stretch... Because as a runner I often forget to take the time to cool down and stretch my muscles.
I am working on balance - in all areas of my life.

runningrachel One of my goals for 2016 is to get stronger... And hold my handstand longer. The magic of photographs make the split second I am holding my position appear longer. ️ -------------- My whole fitness journey is an adventure full of transformation: both physical and mental.
For today's #sweatpink and #prAnastyle #poseoftheday I am challenged to show you what I am working on for #transformationTuesday.
Really ALL yoga poses challenge me... And I am working on my flexibility and strength.
Thanks @fitapproach and @prana for getting me out of my comfort zone.

runningrachel I have big dreams ... in order to reach them I can no longer stay stagnant and continue doing what I've been doing.
Time to step out of my comfort zone, dream big and enjoy the little things in life.

runningrachel Enjoyed a beautiful 3 mile trail run this morning. The weather was unseasonably warm (mid 50s) and the sun was shining. It was gorgeous.
My run felt harder than it should have though... Time to stop making excuses and stick to a training plan and do what I know works for me. #nomoreexcuses
My heart rate was higher than I'd like... But my body felt strong. I am a work in progress.
Everyday is a new adventure. Enjoying the journey... taking baby steps one day at a time.

runningrachel First run in a LONG time. I visited my local gym using a free 7-day pass to give it a try.
I ran in my new @asics #FuzeX shoes and my feet felt great!
My heart rate was monitored by my @polarglobal #polarA360 ️ Oh how I miss running and fitness! I NEED to make it a priority in my day/life again. #nomoreexcuses

runningrachel My life lately has been one big adventure. Every day is something new and oftentimes - totally exciting - it can lead me feeling very overwhelmed.
I was given the opportunity to work with a @lifereimagined LifeCoach to talk about my life goals and plans to feel less overwhelmed ... and find my joy. ️ My experience and outcome are live on the blog.

runningrachel Life as a substitute teacher has taught me to not put things off for tomorrow... my days are always different and often changing at the last minute.
Life is too short to wait. Go and do what you dream of. Don't put it off.
For me, it was a quick run before teaching in the afternoon. I never know when a free day will happen, so I am learning to take advantage of the free time i do have. Not to procrastinate.

runningrachel I battled my "I don't wanna" and won.
I bundled up for a quick and chilly afternoon run.
I felt great during and afterwards... And am glad I got out there today!
