Who Do You Love? & #WIAW!

Well Happy Wednesday there, Friend!  I hope that your week is SO AWESOME so far!

I did something new yesterday after my run --> Post-Run Power Exercises.


Candid:  My phone fell over, thanks to the 30 MPH wind gusts.


3 x 10-15 of each:

Prisoner Squats
Step-Ups (each leg)
Jump-Ups
Jumping Lunges


Also, I managed to not get pinched by a Leprechaun, since I wasn't wearing any green (during the run, that is!).


Some much needed visiting with Harry's Aunt and Uncle after work.  My t-shirt says "Lucky", in case you were wondering.  o.O


Onto #WIAW.



Snacks galore!  My delicious granola cereal from TJs, my beautiful salad (can I stop talking about salads already?!), and my Reuben sammich from dinner last night.  I definitely ate the whole thing.  Sorry, not sorry.

Today I wanna talk about motivation by way of others.  These lives touch mine on a daily basis, and I am always happy to see what they're up to.  Social media has seriously given motivation and inspiration a step up, and it's ours to take advantage of (in the most sincerest form).

I stalk follow so many professional and elite athletes in so many places, from so many walks/runs.  From NBA players to Triathletes, I love the insight provided by athletes from all over.  I look to them for inspiration, for motivation, for giggles, and for the sense of resemblance that we all crave from each others' athleticism.  I love knowing their struggles are *like* mine.  I love seeing how *normal*(for lack of a better word) they are.  Their training, pictures and videos they post, and words of encouragement can pull me out of the roughest rut!  They're Superheroes to me.:)

She makes me laugh, she makes me cry (in a good way), and she encourages me to get closer to God every single day.

Mommy, Olympic Marathoner, role model to the masses!




Andrea Duke
I consider myself one of the luckiest people on the planet to know this lady.  She exudes confidence, trains hard, works hard, and does it all while running a fitness and soccer/sports center for kids, not to mention being a Mommy.  She's the best!



Chrissie Wellington
Need I say more?

Who do you follow?  Who do you LOVE?  

Did you celebrate St. Paddy's yesterday?

On that note:  Is it St. Paddy's, or St. Patty's?
