“Never give up on a dream just because the time it will take to accomplish it. The time will pass anyway.” - Earl Nightengale . Almost one year ago to the DAY, I was told by a handful of doctors that I needed to stop running. Indefinitely. And as a competitive long-course triathlete, this kind of threw a wrench in my plans!! 🔧🤷🏼‍♀️ . But I’d been experiencing pain for about two months prior, and an MRI revealed that my ankle bone was sinking on to my peroneal tendons and fraying them from the middle. #yuck . Despite knowing what the problem was, I was not given clear guidance on how to resolve the issue. I followed the conservative course of action and attended physical therapy for several weeks with no improvement, and, by then, I was feeling hopeless and helpless about the situation. . Eventually, I found a doctor who talked me through my scans, listened to my story and my goals (( cough ** 100 mile trail ultra Marathon ** cough )), and eventually said, “First of all, I think you’re crazy, but we can make that possible. It will take time, but there’s no reason you couldn’t do it if all goes smoothly.” . Um... YES!! 🙌🏻 Shut up and take my money. 🤣 . So, I went under the knife in May and then spent PLENTY of time in a cast... And then a boot... And then a brace... And then MONTHS of PT. When late September rolled around and I was cleared to start running again, it was for 15 minutes at a time (half of it walking) and I was told to BUILD SLOWLY. 🚧 . And I did exactly that. Because, honestly, I was fine progressing at a snail’s pace 🐌 as long as I was moving FORWARD and closer to my goals. It has not always been easy, but it has been WORTH IT!! . 367 days after I had to stop running, today’s post-surgical PERSONAL BEST was brought to you by: . PATIENCE | DISCIPLINE | SUPPORT | VISION | BELIEF . There is still a LONG road ahead to get to my BIG DREAM GOAL, but you can bet your ass I’m celebrating this victory with everything I’ve got!! ✌🏻❤️🔥 . . . . . #dontstopbelieving #keepmovingforward #dothething #injuryrecovery #progressnotperfection #triathletes #thatcoachlife #enduranceathlete #runnerd #ultrarunning #zerolimits #embracethespace #growthmindset

One of my favorite things about Saturday is that I get to freestyle for 12 rounds of 3 minutes to work on making tricks and transitions smoother... I get to work on stamina and overall clean up my jump roping in general and speed. Here’s some highlights from that #jumprope #jumpropeworkout #dothething #fitness #fitfam #crossrope #fitnessjourney #fitnessinspiration #fitnessmotivation #progress #speedkills

“No discipline is enjoyable while it’s happening—it’s painful! But afterwards there will be a peaceful harvest of right living for those who are trained this way.” Hebrews 12:11 . . Today was a battle between the ears for me. I thought of all the excuses (tired,unmotivated,alone ext..) but the voice inside kept telling me to remain disciplined. One good decision at a time, one day at a time to help me reach my goals. Sooo..I drank some spark and I got after it y’all! I’m so thankful I did! I want to encourage you to do the same. If you need help reaching your health & fitness goals message me, I would love to help you and share my story!! Also thank you @advocare for providing awesome products that help me reach my goals!! . . #fitandfaithful #cro#crossfitmom #fitmom #advocare #advocaresdvisor #womenwholift #healthandwellness #dothething #mindovermatter #crossfit #fitness #fitnessmotivation #fitlife #motivation #spark #lunges #pullups #rowing #bornprimitive #bornprimitivebrandrep @bornprimitive

#dot#dothething feature is the week @1317savage 🔥🙏🏽 Loved his caption👇🏽This Jump Rope Dude understands that to get the most out of your jump rope workout you just need to come 1-2 in off the ground. It’s like gliding baby!! 👌🏼 ・・・ So long as you walk on clouds your feet may never touch the ground ☁️ ⚡️ #jumprope #jumpropeworkout #crossrope #dothething #progress #speed #fitness #fitfam #fitnessmotivation #fitnessjourney #fitguys #fitnessinspiration

And, I would add, to get up and DO THE THING. 🖤 If you’ve been watching my posts lately, you have heard me speak on this. 🖤 We pretend that we don’t know what our heart desires and we pretend that we don’t know what our purpose is. 🖤 Okay. Maybe that’s true. But let me be real clear, in this journey you’ll be asked to dig deep. And in that digging you will come face to face with your truth and your purpose. 🖤 But for me, I had to summon that next level courage to consistently take the daily action steps required to make it happen. #itainteasy #itisworthit #womanup #manup #dothething #purposefullife #ownthatshit

#truthbomb no one can tell you how to feel. Just remember we are all connected and some of your feelings might not be your own. If you find that happening to you, honour what someone has shared with you and release it. You don't need to be carrying other people's emotions and feelings on top of your own. #dothething #embraceyourweird #muchlove #youarebeautiful #feelings #dontletothersdefineyou #youarespecial #humanaf #honor #release #dontholdon

Aaaaand 5k in the books!! 🌧🏃🏼‍♀️🌧Had so much fun with my running buddy @ednamonterrosa and all my coworkers who braved it to run in this crazy cold downpour rainy weather with smiles on their faces! You are all so awesome. The skies cleared and it stopped raining for almost the *exact* amount of time it took to race, haha. It was so perfect. Making this an annual thing, FOR SURE! ✨💚#myfirst5k #formfollowsfitness #runningintherain #itsjustwater #5kfinish #dothething #strengthenyourself #diginbloomout Now off to kickboxing.... 😎

A few times a year my friends and I go out and take photos to get references for drawings, and because it’s fun and we look bad ass. These are some of my favorites. Don’t have anywhere else to put them at the moment, but y’all might find them fun. And if ye be hesitant to do something like this in ‘real life’ I say go do it anyway. Life is short and you got stuff in you to say. #liveit #ownit #dothething
