Ainsley's Angels: Team Lilly Jo

Ainsley's Angels: Team Lilly Jo

What a life changing experience! 
Lilly Jo and her family are amazing. Her sister Rorrie ran with us on mile 12. She adores her big sister and we love their awesome spirit. I gave Rorrie my finishers medal and told her she earned it. The smile she gave me inspires me to be better.  

Take a look at all of the joy! A special thanks to Shannon and Greg. You both are amazing people and awesome teammates. I am inspired by you. Chad and Jolene Darter, you are two special people. Thanks for what you do. Curt Ehlinger: thanks for rocking today. You inspire so many Curt. You make the orange army proud, daily. 

Teri Connely: thanks for the support (5:30 wake up calls, encouraging words and for listening to me) and for pushing me to be better. :):) I love you. My man Nile: thanks for being you! I thought of you during the race (that guy you chase ran the race). Woo hoo! Thanks to the MVRA and all of the volunteers. Your support for this race is world class: thank you!

Now enjoy the best part! Lilly Jo: we loved running with you, always keep that smile factory going. You light the world up!

Lending out my legs!

Lending out my legs!

That's a headline you won't see very often- YIKES! 

You have probably heard me mention that I am running the Benefit Classic Half Marathon in Dubuque. It's one of my favorite races and the site of some of my best runs- EVER! 

I am proud to share with you that I will be sharing my legs on this one, thanks to Chad Darter. Chad- you are amazing and thank you for what you do. You are an inspiration. 

 A week from today, I will be an Angel runner for Ainsley's Angels. I couldn't be more honored to run this race. 

To my Angel, I don't know who you are yet. I can't wait to meet you. We may not be the fastest in the race, but we will have fun. It's an honor to share this opportunity together. See you Monday, we will bring the noise. :)

10 miles, roughed me up!

10 miles, roughed me up!

I am a positive person. Today I had a big run and thought my positive attitude would rock me through. 

I ran this distance last week and loved it. Today rocked me big time. I made it through. My pace was off. I cramped up later. I had enough water. A difficult experience for sure. 

Good news, it happens. 

I will work forward. A chariot depends on me. 

I will be there.

I will finish.

Always do. Thankfully :)

Oh how I missed you!

Oh how I missed you!

Long runs, oh how I have missed you! Just a few weeks ago, I started cranking up a few long runs. Here is what I have noticed/missed:

  • it pushes you past a limit
  • it can be uncomfortable, until you are finished:)
  • Playlists are awesome
  • you find a natural rhythm 
  • it requires planning (hydration, fuel, timing)
  • it's so much fun!

A friend sent this to me earlier today and I just watched it tonight. I love how the Ball State team executed this, how cool. It's great for the player, great for their program and just a wonderful story.

The video is 3.5 minutes long and it worth it. At the end, his Dad says "thank your coaches for how they work with you".

How refreshing is that to hear? The best part...the player is learning how to be gracious. His mother and father reinforced it. LOVE. LOVE.

Well done Seger family. I love your work ethic, dedication and family values.

Watch this feel good story here.
