Spent the weekend working, working out, creating content and binging Desperate Housewives. ⚡️🖤AKA MY IDEAL WEEKEND. If you haven’t seen my story yet about leadership, check out my send moods story highlight tab. “Your greatest achievements won’t come from what you do at the top. They’ll come from the dark unseen places at the bottom, where you struggled and sacrificed and felt like giving up.” @attackathletics with the hard truth and the greatest lesson to learn. You have to keep your head down and get to work if you want results – if you want greatness. Mindsets like these are how I stay motivated to run my business and make decisions. So here’s a little extra 👏🏼 motivation. A full body circuit you can do @ the gym: PS the second video has 2 exercises in itttt. And also has me doing some weird knee pulsing…I’ve been doing that since my freshman year of college and can’t get rid of it 😂😂 – Trap bar deadlifts 4×15 Around the worlds 4×8 Rear delt fly 4×8 Glute bridges 4×15

Living life in motion. I find it more fun to challenge myself than to stay stagnant or in a safe zone. But I’ve also learned when to push the boundaries, and when not to. I’m so excited to be running the B.A.A. Half Marathon this October. I’ve run this race twice before, years ago, and it’s such a fun one. After those two half’s I decided to run the full 26.2. I ran two marathons and I know for a fact I’ll run at least one more. I actually wanted to run it this year. Three marathons in three years sounded pretty cool to me. But when I was presented with the opportunity to run the marathon I wanted in 2019, I decided to turn it down. My heart simply isn’t in it. I just don’t want to train for it. I can’t fathom running 18 to 22 miles on my weekends right now. And if there’s one thing I know for certain, it’s that you absolutely cannot run a marathon successfully without truly wanting to do it. Whenever someone asks me about the experience of running a marathon, I tell them that any one can do it — but you have to WANT to do it. Your head and heart need to fully commit. It will not be fun and you will not enjoy it unless you have the desire and determination. And I don’t have it right now. But I still wanted to run a race. I want to reconnect with running for the joy of running. Because I really love it. So a half marathon it is! And I couldn’t be more thrilled. I’m still training, I’m still doing what I love, I’m still running — and the best part is I’m listening to my heart and enjoying the process. Marathons will always be there, and I’ll go back to when I’m ready. Push your boundaries, but know when not to. …………………………………………………………………………
