Another failed attempt at yoga. πŸ™ˆ I made it halfway through before the heat in the room really kicked in and I felt like I was having an asthma attack. πŸ˜… I decided to go below to the basketball courts and ended up joining a large group of 21 and it was AWESOME! πŸ€ Sometimes yoga/meditation/relaxation/de-stressing doesn't mean sitting and breathing (although I do think it's important and helpful!), sometimes what you need is a good sweat sesh doing something you love. 😌 πŸ”Ή πŸ”Ή πŸ”Ή πŸ”Ή #bbg #bbgmn #bbgmntribe #bbgminnesota #minnesotarunner #minnesota #midwestrunner #minnesotalife #midwestlife #healthylifestyle #healthyliving #healthy #runnerscommunity #runnersofinstagram #runnerslife #runnersworld #wholefoodplantbased #wfpb #wholefoods #wholefood #lifetimefitness #fitness #womenwhoplaybasketball #girlswhoplaybasketball #asics #motivation #destress #runitout #sweatitout #lifetimefitness #yoga

Nothing like some late night meal prep. πŸ˜… I baked 4 days worth of sweet potatoes, plus some lentils, tomatoes, green lettuce, and @plantbasedana 's sweet mustard dressing for my lunches! 🌿 Oh, and can't forget the tasty honeycrisp apple sitting snugly in my lunch bag. 🍎😏 I then made 3 sets of overnight oats. Super simple but oh so tasty: traditional oats, chia seeds, ground flax seed, @lovemysilk almond milk, frozen blueberries, and frozen πŸ“. I unfortunately don't have anything prepped for dinners yet, but I'll get there when I get there. πŸ’πŸΌ πŸ”Έ The yogurt, cottage cheese, and lunchmeat containers are for my oats and sweet potatoes, back when I regularly ate dairy and meat (or my hubby now). They're great storage containers and are BPA-free!

Kansas City must have seen me coming! With scabs just starting to form after leaving a chunk of my flesh on the pavement (and bits of pavement in my flesh) on Tuesday, this morning I strapped on my running shoes and pushed myself a bit harder and longer than was prudent and almost left a piece of me in KC. Sharing my Tuesday adventures with my daughter. Ash: This happens often, then? Me: O.O Keeping people entertained in the northland. #pickupfeet #runningadventures #kcadventures #amrunning #fittolive #overcomingCI #gohardorgohome #midwestrunner #runningintjeheartland #gathetingmywarstories

A little belated #transformationtuesday . The first pic is my first half back in February if this year. . The second pic is from Saturday. . Hard work and dedication do pay off. My goal was a 13:30 needed to finish in under 3 hours and I pulled off a 12:43 pace and shaved 24.5 minutes off my previous time. .

My friend's funeral is today. Actually, visitation is going on right now, as I type this. Unfortunately Luke and I are unable to go, as we live 5 hours away and it's hard to drop everything and go anywhere without some time to plan for it. So I ran instead. Now I'm not exactly the kind of person who dedicated runs or miles or races or whatever to people. That's just not my thing. But I did do this run sans music and spent the majority of it thinking about him and praying for his family. Also threw a few strides in at the end, just for fun. ⛅️ . #halfmarathontraining #fallrunning #clouds #hshive #runner #runnergirl #running #runforlife #runnersofinstagram #womensrunningcommunity #inspiringwomenrunners #fitfluential #runnerscommunity #wearetherunners #instarunners #midwestrunner #kansasrunner #runnerslife #fitness #fitfam #teamzensah

@inheavyrotation

I was a wolf today. Despite the heat, hills & humidity I persevered. A lot goes through my mind covering 13+ miles & I found myself having to refocus a few times. My #BMR brother Ronald Ramirez caught up to me @ the 7 1/2 mile mark & tapped me on the shoulder. Without that push I wouldn't have done as well. I thought about Tamott's training when he talks about finishing strong. I thought about @drandtec54 Darryell telling me to slow down & pace myself. Most of all I thought about my cousin who I lost back in 1998. He was a huge influence on my life. This one was a character builder & I wanted to do well running in his memory. The last 3 miles I enjoyed more than any other race I've ever been in because I was in complete control of my thought process & felt myself getting stronger. It's in that moment when you're beyond exhaustion you really have to ask yourself who you are. Who do you want to be? Are you willing to take the pain & discomfort & push past it? I'm not the fastest but I'm getting faster. I'm not the strongest but I'm getting stronger. The one thing I've always been able to rely on is I have absolutely NO QUIT in me. I will run until I pass out if that's what It takes. That last 3 miles is why I run. It's an indescribable feeling. When you know you've done all you can & you're going to cross that finish line I fall in love with who the fuck I am & who I'm going to be. I was a wolf today. #BlackMenRun #BlackMenRunDet #AHealthyBrotherhood #halffanatic #RunFree #RunSmart #RunHard #JustRun #Runnershigh #runnersofinstagram #Runner #Runners #Runnersofig #runningcommunity #midwestrunner #InHeavyRotation

Pictures from yesterday's run at one of my favorite places: the family cabin. πŸŒ²πŸ‚ Did a quick 4-mile run, but man did it feel like 10 thanks to the heat. πŸ˜“ Penny was pretty toasty afterward and all I wanted was a cold shower. πŸ˜… Been busy with road cleanup (fallen branches, dead trees, etc.), napping, and watching movies (forced my whole family to watch Wonder Woman because it's AMAZING πŸ’ͺπŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ™ŒπŸ»). Happy weekend, everyone! πŸ”Ή πŸ”Ή πŸ”Ή πŸ”Ή #bbg #bbgmn #bbgmntribe #bbgminnesota #minnesotarunner #minnesota #midwestrunner #minnesotalife #midwestlife #healthylifestyle #healthyliving #healthy #runnerscommunity #runnersofinstagram #runnerslife #runnersworld #wholefoodplantbased #wfpb #wholefoods #wholefood #cabinlife #weekendvibes #wonderwoman #nature #forest #woods #woodland

There's no such thing as too many consecutive days of leftovers. 😏 Baked potato, black beans, brown lentils, πŸ…, salsa, πŸ₯‘, @hotforfood 's cashew sour cream, and a splash of lime! I started soaking more cashews for more sour cream. πŸ˜› I also made some homemade lime whole wheat tortillas to dip into my food and leftover sour cream (I may have a small addiction...). To end the meal, I ate baked zucchini coin slices. πŸ˜‹ So much goodness in so many bowl servings! πŸ”Ή πŸ”Ή πŸ”Ή πŸ”Ή #bbg #bbgmn #bbgmntribe #bbgminnesota #minnesotarunner #minnesota #midwestrunner #minnesotalife #midwestlife #healthylifestyle #healthyliving #healthy #runnerscommunity #runnersofinstagram #runnerslife #runnersworld #wholefoodplantbased #wfpb #wholefoods #wholefood #vegan #veganathlete #veganbowl #veganmeal #veganfood #vegandinner #vegansupper #cashewsourcream #vegetarian

Yay, I ran today!! It was only a mile because it was like 80 degrees out and I'm a huge wimp when it comes to the heat haha. Oh well, still better than nothing! πŸ˜‰ Plus my knee felt pretty good! It's not 100% better yet but it's getting there. Followed my super short run with a 10 minute strength routine and now I'm thinking I need a snack! πŸ˜‰Happy hump day everyone!πŸͺ . #hshive #runner #runnergirl #running #runforlife #runnersofinstagram #womensrunningcommunity #inspiringwomenrunners #fitfluential #runnerscommunity #wearetherunners #instarunners #midwestrunner #kansasrunner #runnerslife #fitness #fitfam

New job, new routine! I started a new job this week (hence why a little MIA) and (for now) I am starting later than usual. I'm one of those crazy morning people that usually starts as early as possible. β˜€οΈ However, I've still been getting up early and getting things done around the house which actually feels GREAT! πŸ‘πŸ» I like not feeling as if I have to get everything done in the evenings. I also get to spend more time with this fuzzy cutie. 🐺 Started the day by petting her, taking her for a walk with my hubby, then eating my overnight oats with a nice cup of chai. β˜•οΈ Good morning and have a great day, everyone! πŸ”Ή πŸ”Ή πŸ”Ή πŸ”Ή #bbg #bbgmn #bbgmntribe #bbgminnesota #minnesotarunner #minnesota #midwestrunner #minnesotalife #midwestlife #healthylifestyle #healthyliving #healthy #runnerscommunity #runnersofinstagram #runnerslife #runnersworld #wholefoodplantbased #wfpb #wholefoods #wholefood #dogsofinstagram #blacklabsofinstagram #bordercolliesofinstagram #muttsofinstagram #puppy #morningperson #morningroutine

Hey y'all, Chrissy here! As I train for an upcoming half marathon my days start out pretty early on the trail. As a small safety precaution I like to have a blade on me at all times. The lighter the better! My go to is usually the Spyderco Dragonfly, I can literally clip it anywhere and be comfortable! @spyderco_inc πŸ”ͺ β€’ β€’ β€’ #spyderco #dragonfly #everydaycarry #edcgear #knifecommunity #knifestagram #usnstagram #runningcommunity #halfmarathontraining #motherrunner #midwestrunner #runnersofinstagram #runningmom #stravarun #fitbitblaze

Still not having much luck with running, but Luke and I took the dogs to the park and walked around for a bit this evening.

Taking a #restday. The race, the travel, the lack of sleep and work stress has caught up with me. Just a small case of the sniffles but I know to rest today so I can push tomorrow.
