It’s Wednesday evening. Time to pack your running gear & message your friends. Tomorrow we run together at your adidas Runners Sydney🏃🏃♀️
We’re keeping it fresh with our new 5km course; come join us from 5.45pm at the adidas Central store📍
After my first trail, my taste for competition get back
I had totally forgotten the feeling of rush of adrenaline, the taste of competing and the desire to win.
Therefore, I have decided to continue by enrolling the 10Km Paris Centre and the 20 km of Paris races.
The first race was scheduled for October 1 and the second for October 8.
As the 10 km, Paris Centre has been postponed to October 15; I started with the 20 KM of Paris on October 8.
To be ready both body and soul, I slept early the day before.
October 08, 2017, I completed my first 20km race in 1:34:16.

Après mon premier trail, j'ai repris goût à la compétition,
J’avais oublié cette adrénaline, le goût de concourir, l'envie de gagner.
Donc j'ai décidé de poursuivre en m'inscrivant au 10 km de paris centre et au 20 km de Paris.
La première course citée était prévue pour le 1eroctobre et la seconde pour le 08 octobre.
Pour des raisons d'organisation les 10 km ont été reporté au 15 octobre 2017.
Je commence donc par le 20 KM de Paris le 08 octobre.
Je dors très tôt la veille pour avoir des jambes et être performant.
Le 08 octobre 2017, je finis mon premier 20km en 1:34:16
Floating through the air on my way to a new PR! •
Before I went to bed on Saturday night, I wrote down this quote on a piece of paper:
"You've got to take a shot. You have to live at the edge of your capabilities." I taped it to my mirror. It's the last thing I saw before I went to bed and the first thing I saw when I woke up on Sunday morning. And it's the exact mindset that burned within me throughout the duration of the Houston marathon. Take a shot! Live at the edge! And your bound to be successful! 2:35 is nice, but sub 2:30, I'm coming for ya!🏁🏆

Last speed session of the training cycle - feel like laying down on this blanket for days. Monday was tough day and I had to cut my easy 6 miles short to just 3 on account of time constraints and just general my cold got worse stuff. It was a conscious decision though as I really wanted to perform for my speed session, which is important. Plus I’m feeling like I’m starting to come out from the cloud of sickness even if there is still some road to burn there. Next week the plan brings on what it calls “strength” sessions, which are longer distances at a pace slightly faster than marathon race pace. Looking forward to the challenge.
The forecast kept changing but we did end up with 40F at runnin’ time! Got in 3.4 miles with some threshold effort and a modest uphill on the way back. Gotta get those hard runs in because the sidewalks might be icy tomorrow.
#snowday today!! This is rare for Houston but the second time this season! When it snows in Houston offices and schools close! Ha ha! It’s been a cozy day at home with my mini and I just finished my workout on the treadmill 🙌 Now it’s time for #candyland and hot chocolate! Speaking of hot chocolate...12 days until the @hotchocolate15k
If there's one thing I've learned from #Texas, it's that anything's possible -- like getting to run down #Soco without any traffic 💁🏻❄️😂 📷: @watch_abfly

After receiving the news that I have a complete tear of my ACL from the @rundisney Super Hero Half Marathon last September (the one I placed 2nd in), I needed a long run to process that information. Should I be running on a torn ACL? Probably not. Did it stop me from today’s training run? Absolutely not - because today’s run wasn’t about the speed or the distance, it was about the therapy session between me, myself, my music and the trail. The overcast clouds in the Bay this morning perfectly reflected how I’m feeling right now- I’m in a fog. But towards the end of my run the sun was starting to shine through, and as I finished my run, I was proud that I was able to complete 14 miles. My knee was taped and bandaged like crazy, but I completed my miles. I’ve made it back from an ACL injury two times already and as they say: third times the charm 🤨so until my surgeon says I can’t run, I shall continue with my training, taking each step with just a little extra caution. Wish me luck!!

Top notch. Or top knot. I could really go either way on this one.
