I am NOT a distance runner, itโ€™s not apart of my workout regimen, and actually try to avoid it because of a knee injury... so when I tell you I ran a 10mi race yesterday ๐Ÿ‘Ÿ itโ€™s a BIG DEAL!!!! โ€ข Thanks to @morganglunt for convincing me to sign up for the 10mile #BroadStreetRun because I didnโ€™t think I could do it, didnโ€™t think I wanted to do it (hah!), and was a little overwhelmed with the idea of running more than 1 mile ๐Ÿ˜ โ€ข Soooo I didnโ€™t practice or prepare the conventional way people think you prep for a a long race BUT only running 4 times to prepare, I was able to CRUSH the race! I ran an 8:15 min/mi pace, broke 8-min pace on mile 6 and 8 AND the last mile ran a 6:54-min mile!!!!! โ€ข I went into the race with a stomach bug ๐Ÿคข๐Ÿคฎ but tried to focus on just making it through one mile at a time without thinking about feeling sick, or my knee hurting... so, HOW DID I TRAIN for a race without physically running? SPINNING ๐Ÿšฒ @cyclebpm with all of my dedicated riders who keep me motivated and push me every damn day! โ€ข With the excitement of the race, knowing summer is around the corner and wanting to improve both mentally and physically, COME RIDE WITH ME!!! โ€ข Teaching this week Mon: 6am๐Ÿ”บ6pm๐Ÿ”บ7pm Tues: 6pm Wed: 6am๐Ÿ”บ6pm Fri: 6am๐Ÿ”บ5:30pm Sat: 9am

I started teaching originally because I was going to the gym at 9:30 M-F. The free gym membership was a nice perk, earning a paycheck on top of that was the icing. I never discounted how amazing it was to get paid to work out. Then I realized what was most important. I never became an instructor because of the money. I did it because I went to classes so often, I thought, โ€œI could do that...โ€ I have met so many amazing people through teaching. (She is just one of the many) @bkwartnik36 Being able to change peoples lives and their mentality has been THE GREATEST reward. Building confidence, strength, endurance...giving them an outlet, a reason to lace up their sneakers, or clip in their spin shoes.... Try new things, get uncomfortable... I just want to say, thank you all for trusting me. I am so, so lucky! And finally-the biggest thank you to Lisa Reynolds for helping me get started on this journey in 2009 and @jcuesta07 @sydddruth for having faith in me ๐Ÿ™Œ

Went out of my comfort zone today and tried a new cycle studio. @cyclebpm what an experience! They provide cycle shoes (which I have never worn in my 10+ years I have been indoor cycling), have a stadium setup, and the lights are constantly changing. Oh and they do "dancy" stuff to the beat of the music. Made me realize how uncoordinated I am. Ha! I will definitely go again... Gotta get used to the shoes! . . . . . #spin #spinclass #workout #sprints #crosstraining #soremuscles #fitgal #phillyfit #cyclebar #cyclebarplymouthmeeting #cyclebpm #fitness #fitlife #fitgirl #girlswhorun #hillclimb #strongisbeautiful #cityfitgirl #sweatyselfie #sorebutnotsorry #bike #selfcare #stressrelief #girlswhospin #wednesdayfitness #livingthefitlife #tryingnewthings #indoorcycling #flex #showmeyourmuscles
