We came. We saw. We ran. We conquered. Philly was no match for us.
Day 2. Good times.
Just like life. Apply ice and go back out 20 min later. Neck is still super sore. Waves were totally worth it. Black eyes are sexy right?
The ocean one upped me today. Still some fun waves. That’ll teach me to ride high
Inspiration is everywhere. Beautiful sunrise this morning. Probably one of my fav photos of Teddy. He is so photogenic. Beautiful shell too. Run cut short today due to a strange ankle pain. Better safe than sorry. First pain in a month. Probably from the heavy fin action yesterday battling rough waves. 6 planned for Saturday. Happy humps day
All smiles today and covered in sweat. It was a good 3 miler. Late start so I took it a bit slower and actually felt better. Even tho it was later it wasn’t as hot as I was expecting. Can’t wait to bump up to 4miles this comin week. Me and Teddy are ready for sunrise runs

Follow your heart. I intend to run however. All day and all night. I don’t ever want to stop. Running is my addiction. My drug. What keeps me strong. It keeps me from cracking. It’s great to have Teddy to keep me company. Had an awesome hard 3 miles this morning. Starting over sucks but it’s better than not being able to @altrarunning
Making progress! 3 miles done today. My brain is telling me to go further and harder and I’m trying to tell it to settle down. We’ll get there. I guess it thought the 7 weeks was a vacation. I wish it was. I think about how dark those weeks were and how it sucked in so many ways. Running is what keeps my head cleared. By the end, I’m too exhausted to battle anything else so the mind relaxes. It feels really good to exhaust the mind and to be back on the road. Huffing and puffing. Lots of huffing because my legs have lost the endurance. 35 days till my first race back. Philly RnR here I come! Teddy can’t wait to travel again
Teddy up to his shenanigans. 2 miles again today. Little bit faster pace. Recovery is hard that’s for sure. Just so damn happy to be running again. I didn’t need to lose it to know what I had. I cherish every step I get to make. I enjoy the sweat stinging my eyes. The heavy breathing and constant struggle to keep going. I don’t ever want to be kept away from running again. Not sure I’d survive
This is happening in my kitchen. 3 bean turkey chili. It smells amazing and of course had to sneak a taste. Sooo good. I’ll add a few clipping from my cilantro plant and this’ll be lunch and dinner and my meal for the next few days
