My BRF: The Kelly Bra

I always joke with my running buddies that the hardest part of my runs is putting on and taking off my sports bra. I absolutely hate traditional sports bras. They are hard to get on and take off.  They are uncomfortable to wear especially during a long run or bike ride.  If they have wires […]

Community

When I think about the last few years of my “running life”, all of my best memories are those with my Moms Run This Town (MRTT) Group. We may have started as a running group, but we’ve morphed into our own community. 4 1/2 years ago I was looking for some running buddies and had […]

Gotta Go on the Go

There’s not a lot I don’t like about running in my Skirt Sport Skirts. They are comfortable, the shorts don’t ride up, they have plenty of room for my cell phone and some extras… But gosh… on a long run or race when I have to … well…. you know how it goes… “Can I […]

Rachel W: HOPE

When I was 26 I felt like my life was falling apart. Only six weeks after I gave birth to my sweet daughter, which was a difficult pregnancy and delivery, my mother passed away unexpectedly from an aneurism. It was surreal. She was completely fine and healthy. When I got the call, I was in […]

Heather H. – Persistence

At the beginning of every year, I always sit down and make plans and set some goals and intentions for the year. So when I volunteered to write about my word for this year, I thought it would be easy. Well it wasn’t as easy as I thought, but I did have one that kept […]

Liz D: Resilience

What’s life like as an Army wife? Make a plan and write it down on a sheet of your best stationary.  Take that plan, tear it into shreds, throw it up in the air, and dance around in the confetti! I knew going into this venture with my husband, Troy, that life was going to […]

Kimberlee R. – SHINE

I’m going to be honest. I had a tough time thinking of just one word.  I could have easily picked inspire, persevere, resilience, gigglebox (I tend to laugh, A LOT).  As I thought about what running brings to my life, I started to think about my struggles with depression and anxiety and how running has […]

Jessi A. – Friendship

Perseverance, Stubborn, Crazy…all words I contemplated when trying to figure out what my word was. They were good, but not quite right. Then it hit me. It was around 2 a.m. on a recent Sunday morning when my word finally came to me. I was pacing a fellow Ambassador during her 100 mile ultra; it […]

I Run For Food. Sanity. Body Love.

I don’t remember my very first running race. I have a photo of myself as a little girl, maybe 7, wearing homemade terrycloth running shorts, a tucked-in tee shirt and knee high socks. I was holding a medal around my neck for placing in the 440 yard run in the junior jaycees track meet. I […]

Samalee A. – MOVE

She was doing life from a position of complacency. Routines with little to no impact. Flipping the calendar month after month and year after year. Nothing to challenge her. Ugly, restless comfort. Then, life happened. Change was imminent. Change was necessary. Change was uncomfortable. Change required movement. Movement required a discomfort. Moving her mouth beyond her […]
