Good morning runner lady friends! This will be a quick check-in. How did your week go and are you ready to tackle this week’s runs? Just a heads up that day three of this week includes a 2 1/4 mile straight run (no walking)- eek! I know full faith that you can do it. The mind is a powerful thing so use it to push yourself through those times when your legs want to stop or when you think you can’t go any further- you you can and yes you will.

I can’t wait to hear all about it.

Now go forth and RUN!

About lisa: I'm a runner, duathlete and future triathlete. I love to cook, drink margaritas, socialize with friends, and I laugh with my entire body. I'm the mother of three kids (ages 8, 6 and 3.5), I turn 40 years old in 2012, and I'm trying to find a peaceful acceptance with my body. I am slowly coming into my own, finding a true passion with empowering and motivating women to conquer their fear of the unknown when taking up running for the first time. View author profile.
