I am stuck on an airplane so I actually have some time to respond to the tag about 5 non-running facts from @run_rhandi_run! ✈️ So frequently I know we are all busy and don't get back to tags! I would like to tag 5 more of my IG friends to play along, here goes: @alissamwc @running_on_beer @ckontherun @margaret_zayas @ashleygar_
1] It's only through a twist of fate that I was born. My mom was 19 and I wasn't planned. She hadn't originally thought to keep the baby. However, at nearly the same time her sister was terminally ill with bone cancer and tried to conceive but could not. As they say, the rest is history....
2] I would say I was somewhat of a troubled youth. I spent 90 days in an inpatient rehab facility as a teen.
3] While in high school they offered an accelerated IT program to learn high tech computer skills. Unfortunately they wouldn't let me take the classes. To be fair, my grades were never very good and I had spent more than my share of time in the Principal's office. However, to this day I have more than 18 years professional IT experience concentrating on law. I am the Technology Director for a major law firm. I am self taught and carry a number of prestigious IT certifications. Never let anyone hold you back. You really are in charge of your own life. I've learned that's it's not just the opportunities that are offered to you that matter, but how you choose to react when life shuffles the deck.
4] As a senior in high school I was voted Most Wanted. On a separate but similar note, I was once charged with a felony back when I was 19. Drumroll.... I beat the charges. All charges dropped and I was completely exonerated. Maybe they weren't so far off with that wanted thing...
5] I grew up in a small town and have always lived in a 10 mile radius. My kids go to the same school I went to as a child. I live less than a mile from my mother. Maybe someday when my kids grow up I'll move away. But for now, I am happy to be stuck here. As far as my father, it's been over 20 years since I have seen or talked to him. It's not only his fault as it may also be mine for not letting him back in my life. I can be unforgiving if you rub me the wrong way.
💙🖤❤️Läkarbesök 👩🏻‍⚕️, lite sol ☀️, intervaller 🏃🏼‍♀️och snart soffläge. Tydligen har jag anemi och imorgon blir det till att lämna mer blodprover för att ta fram orsaken. Så snart är förhoppningsvis den gamla energifyllda Bea tillbaka och kan ge massa energi igen. Plus vad ska stoppa mig då från nya PB? 🙌🏻😄#envis #livet #positivatankar #positivethoughts #walkamileinmyshoes eller #runamileinmyshoes #run #running #runforfun #runnergirl #runningmom #runlikeagirl #runningprincess #nyamål #nyautmaningar #ultravasan90 #bellmanstafetten #stockholmhalvmarathon #hässelbyloppet ❤️🖤💙
Day 11 of 11 this afternoon, was the best thus far! Back to where the struggle began. 81 deg, felt like 90. Dry and windy. Only a few people out, only 2 people running; myself and the young homie upper left. The kid took off shortly after me, and was right behind me when I finished the loop. I was good until 11 minutes, then I got hot AF! Walked a minute, an dipped. We basically mirrored each other. Best part is I hit a new PR looping the lagoon. Major accomplishment! Shit used to take 26 27 minutes. All in a days work. #PenaAdobe #Vacaville #LoopTheLagoon #LagoonValley #trailblazer #runamileinmyshoes #irun #cardiogains #iongettired #TrainingDay #5ktraining #2milerun #CitySlickinCountryBoy #BeeryBonds #GhanaianNightmare #20RunSavage #batshitcrazyforfitness #fitlifeistheshitlife #thatmelanintho #

As I wake up hungover as hell from a night on Mill Ave in Tempe down by Arizona State; I gotta get this out there before I get turnt today!
I came to Arizona on a mission to kill. And that is what I did. The Scottsdale edition of the Giant Race; my 2nd Giant Race and 2nd race in general. 3 years ago I posted a 41 min 5K in the San Jose Giant Race. Certainly not bad for 2014 280lb me.
The 2017 240lb me swung for the fences, on my Pablo Sandoval shit! 28 minutes, 39 seconds, 9:33 per mile, 3 miles non stop. Y'all don't understand how many miles I ran to train for this smh...but it paid off! I lit that ass up. It's only Me vs Me; an I'm undefeated when I TRY! Next up, the Sacramento Giant Race; mid April 2017. #GiantRace #ScottsdaleGiantRace #SFGiants #SFGSpring #SpringTraining #Scottsdale #CitySlickinCountryBoy #BeeryBonds #GhanaianNightmare #20RunSavage #PB #youdowhatyouwantwhenyoupoppin #igottoomuchsauce #helit #itslit #litaf #idgt #iongettired #runamileinmyshoes #batshitcrazyforfitness #fitlifeistheshitlife #PabloSandoval #irun #irunArizona #Bay2AZ #SanFranciscoGiantsBaseball #2017

With the Scottsdale Giant Race Day just over 72 hours away; I got 2 days to run hard before I shut it down. Today, I gassed through 1 mile. In an effort to go hard as I can, and also to try an beat my PB. I've never been a distance runner. Matter fact, my best time ever was 6:59 in middle school! If you ran 7 or less, you got a pass on the next week. I was hype lol...As for my adult running "career" starting out in 2014 I was doing like 12 & 13 minute miles. Then 11's. Then 10:30's for the longest. Down to 9:40's.
But Tuesday gon learn today! Just posted my PB, a 9:15 mile! Not to mention broke a 100 miles on Nike+. I was striking! For a 240 pounder. Race me ousside how bout dah!? Buahaha! The #ScottsdaleGiantRace is gonna be my 2nd official 5K race, first being the #SanJoseGiantRace as you can see by the stolen online pic lol...I love the Giants. I love running. I love my level up. It's Me vs Me, and I never lose! #SFGiants #SFGSpring #SpringTraining #CitySlickinCountryBoy #BeeryBonds #GhanaianNightmare #20RunSavage #NikePlus #NikeRun #BlackExcellence #batshitcrazyforfitness #fitlifeistheshitlife #HardWorkDedication #ibeendointhis #imsousedtothis #irun #irunmycity #RunSammyRun #runamileinmyshoes #100milesandrunning #youdowhatyouwantwhenyoupoppin #igottoomuchsauce
With the Scottsdale Giant Race Day coming up a week from Saturday morning; I have a total of 6 maybe 7 days I can actually hit the pavement before I "close camp" and sky out to AZ. I wasted no time today! Once I registered for it; I was out the door. I ran a totally different route. Kinda just freestyle through my hood until I hit 5K. I posted a PB of 33:59 about a week ago. Today I crushed that by 1 minute, 34 seconds; for a NEW PB! And I'm almost at 100 miles logged Boy I'll tell you what, if it wasn't for stepping on that scale in 2012 an seeing 295, ain't no telling where I'd be by now. Thankful for the goals I've made and the marks I've hit. I won't let ME down! #5K #PB #run #runamileinmyshoes #RunSammyRun #irun #irunmycity #NikeRun #NikePlus #NikeRunClub #NikeRunApp #trailblazer #5ktraining #cardiogains #CitySlickinCountryBoy #BeeryBonds #GhanaianNightmare #batshitcrazyforfitness #fitlifeistheshitlife
