Leopard Fast

Thinking about the run doesn't get me up in the morning, there's something much bigger than the workout. We're becoming reliable friends, strong women, and more humble human beings. 
Thanks for counting on me so I can count on you.

I used to think doing everything by myself was better. I thought getting up in the morning was easy if I set my mind to it, I thought I could motivate myself 24/7. Sometimes I can, but those mornings that you just can't lift your head from the pillow to get on your feet running down the road, I've found it extremely important for myself to have a buddy doing the same thing. She's counting on me to meet her outside ready to run and workout. We always feel SO great after our morning workouts, but it's pretty hard to believe how amazing you will feel when all you can think about is closing your eyes for 5 more minutes...

This summer it has been hard to get into a workout routine because of travel and the transition of the place I call "home." Sara and I have been waking up and getting out the door about 7:30 every morning. We live about a mile away from each other,  so we'll meet on the bike path in the mornings and get those endorphins flowing. We've been working up to about 7 mile runs lately and I'm so proud of us!!! It's awesome to have that friend to push you one more mile because she knows you can and knows we will be better for it. 

The past couple days my ears have been in so much pain, there's a lot of pressure and I can't pop them! I'm trying little remedies and feeling a little better. I took this weekend off and rested, but let me tell you, I am sooo stoked to run again! When I run in the mornings I feel healthy, strong, truly happy, and empowered. The whole day is ahead of me and I have motivation to keep chasing those dreams with all the GOOD energy I create in the morning!

I started working at Vie Active this summer as they opened their first shop in Sun Valley! Come in and say hi if you're in the area! I'm in love with their products. So soft and comfortable, flattering and it's activewear you can run errands in while still feeling fabulous and not a sweaty mess! Sara agrees with me, wearing the leopard print tights make you feel faster and stronger while keeping your feminine edge.

Inspire your workout buddy with this and I'll see you outside tomorrow morning on the trail! ;-)

  1. It’s great to hear about such stories from other fitness enthusiasts yourself. Also loved the workout clothes that you’re sporting in these pics. I haven’t gone shopping for fitness wear since a few months so I feel like it’s time to add some new clothes to my wardrobe. Have found some good quality leggings and a few tank tops too, that I’ll soon be ordering.
