Question: when it's raining and dark out, and you are done with your 2017 race season, how do you motivate yourself to we out of bed and go for a run?
Answer: You have a group of friends who love running just for the hell of it just as much as you do 
Find your passion and surround yourself with passionate people. Happy Tuesday all, get after it πŸ‘ŠπŸ»

A little #tbt race photo to make your Thursday afternoon better- that face 🀣
Last year on this weekend I raced to a PR in the Bucktown #5k (and snagged that lovely finish line photo πŸ‘†πŸ»), this year I'll try to do the same in a 50k. Go big or go home, right? πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ
This year has been an amazing journey for me, both physically and mentally - recovering from an eating disorder, learning to eat well to train right, and seeing a lot of results. I'm excited to celebrate all that this weekend at the @thenorthfaceecs race. I'm just crossing my fingers for a better finishers photo 😜
