Not gonna lie - it felt pretty bad@$$ to do a track workout in the pouring rain. @mjpelly you know how I don’t usually run in the rain 
πŸ˜‚ πŸ˜¦πŸ’§πŸ’§β˜”

We did a 2 mile warmup, then mile repeats. It started pouring as soon as we finished our warm up. We were supposed to do 3 but after our 2nd mile there was crazy lightning. Bummer. I was really feeling good today too.
.
Goal was 8:45 with 2 min. Break in between.
.
Mile 1: 8:44 Mile 2: 8:41. Didn’t feel too difficult though so hoping I can do faster than that at this weekend’s 5k!

Decided I’m going to return the Nikes πŸ™ˆ
I ran in them and they just felt stiff and I also like that these New Balance shoes are an 8 mm heel drop.

Had to drive out of my way to go get these at another sneaker store but worth it in my opinion to stick with a shoe I know and love. Can’t wait to break these in tonight during my track workout!

Well if Shalane Flanagan says so…. 😜
I really am so indecisive when it comes to running shoes. Don’t know if I will return and find my trusty ol’ New Balance shoes or give these Nikes a try. Major #runnerprobs I know…πŸ˜‚

Is there anything better than getting new running shoes? 
The running store didn’t have my favorites - the New Balance 870s. So I am trying Nike Lunarglides πŸ™Š

We’ll see I guess. If you run in Nikes tell me what you think please!

9 miles done! It was a bit warm today and those last two miles were mentally tough but maintained the same pace throughout.
Feeling good post run & had my @plantfusion shake for recovery. Now time for the real recovery… 🍻🍻😜
1:35, avg. 10:33/mile. (at Lake Parsippany - LPPOA)

Okay last #fitblognyc pic I promise πŸ˜‰
Scenes from our group run on the West Side Highway. We ran 3 miles at 9:45 pace…pretty decent speed for me! Glad I got my run in while meeting other runners πŸƒ  (at West Side Highway Bike Path)

I think talking to the doctor has reminded me of my first career dream… Pediatrician.

I always think about it but lately it has been at the forefront.

I’d have to go back and take all the right science classes. It would be insane. But also I’m young enough. I know I could do it… Before I…

Wow I was just thinking about this! My dream was to be a doctor. Until freshman year of college when I couldn’t get over a C in Bio so figured every other class would be so hard. Was just talking to Dan about this..like what if I could go back and pursue this lifelong dream I’ve had. Every time I’m in a hospital or doctor’s office I think about how that’s what I wish I could do. I do think it’s too late for me now =/ I wouldn’t be able to work and can’t expect my parents or dan to support me. But now I’m curious about some post-bacc programs…which is about to be what I will spend time researching now while bored ;)

Love fall but hate that it gets dark so early. Last rep of our track workout was done in the dark 😳
Had an awesome run! 
3 mile warm up, 6x400 at 5k pace, 1 mile cool down.
Did them in 2:01, 2:00, 1:56, 1:54, 1:57, 2:00. Last one I could have done faster if I could actually see lol. First time running sub 2:00 for 400s! Thanks coach @mjpelly!

Great 7.5 mile run! (Finished the .17 after I stopped run keeper) pretty hilly run but glad we averaged about 10/mile! 

Also, love my new @procompression socks!!! Bright pink is what I’m all about 😜 kept my legs warm and shins feeling good.
