Base Miles and Beach Life!

I love summer running!  It may be HOT and HUMID but for me the past 2 months have been filled with stress free miles and just enjoying the distance.  I have kept my weekly mileage between 35-45 miles with some weight lifting and cross training mixed in there too.   I am lucky to have the chance to spend a lot of my time down the beach with my boys and getting in some awesome beach running.

My trusty Mizuno Wave Rider 17's are coming to see their final miles but I absolutely love them and will keep them for cross training!  We have had an amazing ride together!

MY FAV Oiselle running top!!
 I love summer running because you can just throw on a tank top and shorts, lace up and go!  This is by far my favorite running top EVER!

One of the many beautiful sights on my beach running adventures!  I get up early and run before my little ones are even awake so I can enjoy moments like this with them:

Future GQ!
 My little outdoor lover!  He is always looking for an adventure.

My oldest son LOVES the ocean and he will stay out in the water jumping waves and boogie boarding for hours!  He was a little worn out in the below picture:

LOVE these moments and staying active with my boys ... we have had some serious paddle ball, football, lacrosse, and sandcastle building happening on this beach!

Running and fitness are a huge part of my life but honestly I would not be who I am today without my family and friends ... When I am not in "training mode"  I am reminded of these facts!

Spending the 4th of July with my family and friends ... Relaxing, eating and drinking!

MY AMAZING PARENTS and Jen's dad George!  I wish I had more pictures from our intense kickball game but we had so much fun and look forward to next years game!


Fall marathon training will start for me in the next few weeks so I will be getting back into more purposeful miles and my intensity will kick into high gear but for now I am enjoy the break.

Happy Running!


My feet have found a new love for trail running!!!  Mizuno Wave Kazan ....... #LOVE
