Me and my shorts completed 5 “slow” miles today…but 5 miles nonetheless. I was tracking about :30 behind my avg pace. I blame the humidity and NTC yesterday. But I know I’ll get better. #dontbeleemejuhwatchme #irun #running #blackgirlsrun (at Arlington, VA)
Got in Nike Training Club with 99 friends tonight at Nike Georgetown. A #crosstraining activity I actually enjoy! #NTC #nexttimeimwearingmyshorts (at Nike | Georgetown)
My fantastic hairstyling friend from waaaayyy back told me yesterday that I’m doing great with my locs and they’re right where they need to be. And topped it off with a fresh retwist before she left. So now I’m full of myself. Lol thanks for a great weekend @_msjstyles_! #tenderonilocs #locs #imightbuymyselfashortset
I bought a bike a few weeks ago but had been hesitant to commute to work in DC with it for a variety of reasons (i.e. hills, cars, other bikers, distance…) but when I heard about Bike To Work Day I figured I’d take the plunge. I signed up with one if the #waba convoys and set up to ride in (on my day off no less). And it was work. And it was harder than I thought. But I did it! 9 miles completed, plus I got a free tshirt and safety inspection :) I don’t know how often I’d do this again but I’m proud of myself for pushing past my fear and getting it in. #btwd #dc #biking #crosstraining (at Freedom Plaza)
Five miles down. I know y’all hear my footsteps out there… I’m comin. #irun #blackgirlsrun #running #instarunners #andiwasnteveninmyshorts
So yeah, I had a little bit of an attitude after today’s run. But then I had two thoughts:
1. Thank God I can run.
2. This is the starting point.
Now that I’m not training for a race, I can focus on time (as opposed to distance). The quest to get to 10:00 (consistently) begins. #irun #nikerunning #running #ishouldvewornmyshorts
It felt awful. And I’m stuck around this 10:30ish plateau. But I’m glad I did it. 3.5 miles done. #irun #blackgirlsrun #nikerunning
