As race day quickly approaches, make sure to dedicate time for recovery & addressing pain head on.
@Biofreeze, the #1 clinically recommended topical pain reliever, is a solution runners have trusted for years.
Get your secret weapon for race day with an exclusive offer in the link in bio.
I tell people I have chocolate strawberries and bananas for my breakfast..they think Im crazy...fuck what they think cause low-key I’m out here gettin gainz #MySecretWeapon #pbfitpeanutbutter 🤫🤫🤫
I can’t emphasize this enough, but recovery is just as important to your body as training! Since the @chimarathon I took a minor running break even though my body felt just fine post race. With #Biofreeze as my secret weapon: my series of injuries and surgeries on my legs did not feel as stiff or sore as it did last year when I ran the marathon. It was the perfect pain reliever I needed for my sore muscles and joints throughout my training! Now, I feel completely recovered from the marathon and break time is over! I’m back to running and strength training tomorrow with my @biofreeze on deck! #sponsored
8 years ago I was an exhausted mom working 2 jobs and just getting into fitness. I knew that I needed a healthy, holistic way to get some natural energy, and my daily doses of excessive Mt. Dew and Red Bull weren’t good for me. (just ask my astronomical dental bills 😩)
I was working out hard every day, and decided to “draw a line in the sand.” My body deserved the best, NOT the crap I was putting in it.
That’s when I found these. I was blown away that I could get my daily energy from fruits and veggies in a super easy, convenient way. (I was not a veggie lover! 🤭)
Now I do enjoy my coffee in the morning, but am soda free, and the thought of energy drinks literally makes me sick to my stomach.
These have been the healthiest, most ENERGETIC, 8 years of my life.
Today I’m a super fit mom who owns her own businesses (yep, plural and I still have plenty of energy!), and treats her body LIKE A BOSS! 💃🏼

✨ Magical mile 22 ✨ Do you have a special race mile? Mine is marathon mile 22. Every time I reach this mile, my confidence soars because I know I’ve got this. And it happened again in Chicago! Perhaps it’s the fact that the countdown from here is easy: 4-3-2-1 (miles) or that I’ve just run 22 which sounds like a whole lot and the rest sounds like a little. 👍🏼 [photo actually from mile 22!]
One week post marathon and I have not been sore at all. 😳 Perhaps it was the @biofreeze relief zone at mile 21. This was such a “cool” idea. As runners ran through, Biofreeze sprayed where needed (it works through clothes!) I ran through, slowed to a jog, got some relief to cool the soreness in my hamstring, and then just kept running! How cool is that? #Sponsored
Hooray! My giant box of chocolatey goodness has arrived!
It's been just over a week since I had these babies in my life and in that time I've lost energy, had terrible dizziness and plummeting blood pressure, an unsettled tummy and general blergh-ness. Goes to show how important our gut health is!

If you've seen my stories then you've seen how my go go juice can take me from groggy, exhausted, and crabby to a freakin dancing queen 💃🏼 and bad ass weight lifter 🏋️♀️ in a matter of minutes. ⚡Basically this golden juice is life. ⚡
I've tried so many preworkouts and most of them were pretty much the same. I actually enjoyed the jittery feeling they gave me.. a little too much. 🤦🏼♀️ I was basically living off massive amounts of preworkout, loads of coffee, and McDonald's for months. Think of all the chemicals I was putting in my body!! 😱😱
Now, I LOVE my all natural preworkout. No junk, no chemicals, no jitters. I get mad energy with one scoop but don't experience that same energy drop I did with other products so I'm not reaching for the coffee midmorning. #winwin
Oh, and if you haven't seen my stories you're dead to me. 💀💀 KIDDING.. but for real, I make a fool of myself regularly so check them out. 😘
They motivate us, push us, and most important of all… keep us on track to achieve our personal bests – where would we be without our beloved pacers?! That’s why we’re excited to announce that the NYRR pace team is now powered by @Biofreeze and will be sporting a new look at this weekend’s #StatenIslandHalf and at the #TCSNYCMarathon. Spot them in green along the course on race day and show them some love in the comments right now. #MySecretWeapon
Training with Rheumatoid Arthritis is a challenge, there is daily pain, my immune system is compromised, and as training intensifies I tend to flare. Looking back at my past training cycles, I have noticed that peak week usually lays me out. So I’m working with my coach on how to avoid that.
Two weeks before the @chimarathon I had severe pain in my hips/groin/lower back/pelvis. It was debilitating. I had trouble even walking.
I took two weeks off and did water running and ran on an antigravity treadmill.
I was worried about making it to the start line let alone the finish line!!
But I got myself there!! And what do you know I had the best RUN I’ve had in years! I mean look at that smile!! 😁
I never know what the day will bring me with RA, but this was a good day and I am so grateful!
It hurt, it was tough, but I was tougher!!
And I am beyond grateful that @biofreeze was on the course ya’ll! I covered myself pre race, a lovely lady at an aid station rubbed it all on my neck, back, and shoulders! And at mile 21, Biofreeze had a run thru station where I was able to get sprayed down!!
I owe so much to Biofreeze for helping make this my best race in ages!!

Did you noticed that @hourglasscosmetics Confession Ultra Slim High Intensity Lipstick in ‘MY ICON IS_’ was mentioned by @allure as the best Red Lipstick for 2018?⠀
It's not without a reason, this red is truly that perfect blue-red that will make your teeth look a bit more sparkling 😜⠀
However, ‘MY ICON IS_’ is a tad extra creamy comparing my other #ConfessionUltraSlim lipsticks. I can go carefree with others but with the red one I will at least use a matte kinda lip liner underneath. Color intensity is all same though!⠀
If you are an orange-red fan then you may want to check the shade ‘I DESIRE_’ (didn't swatch here) instead.⠀
In case you're like me, prefer hydrated lips more for a daily basis then #GirlLipStylo is your thing to check. Lately been loving this soft peach shade of Girl Lip Stylo call IDEALIST a lot.⠀
...& yass, also been feeling esquisse 👩🏼🎨 thus the swatches!⠀

Every medal is a testament to initiative, hard work, grit, and perseverance. ⭐️ My positive reflections of the Chicago Marathon:
. ☆ Ran with Team Biofreeze - This was my first time running with a “team” and the support and pride of running with other friends and a product that helps runners achieve their best, was unbeatable.
. ☆ Mantras - I memorized my top mantas and they came easily when it got hard. Many of my top mantras were suggestions from you 🙏🏼 - “Define yourself.” “Be Bold” “Fire Within” “Mother Strong” “Make yourself proud” My mental game stayed strong.
. ☆ The blue line - There was a painted blue line down the middle of the course. This represented the shortest tangents to the finish if you follow it. I tried to stay on it! And didn’t waste energy weaving.
. ☆ Music - I didn’t turn on my music until Mile 16. This provided an extra boost when I really needed it. My favorite new run song is “My Own Hymn” by Above & Beyond 🎶
. ☆ Recovery - I started using @biofreeze this training cycle because my muscles have been more sore than usual (low iron- I’ll share more later) It helped cool the pain quickly! And is much easier than ice packs.
. ☆ Coach - I started working with Jeph @jeph.runs.wincity in late July. It was a bit late to start this marathon training but I saw results quickly, he helped identify my low iron, and made the training process enjoyable. Can’t wait to see what is to come for Boston 2019!
What was I even thinking. Well, I wasn’t really thinking, period.🤣
I knew I had to set an example for my daughter, be the fearless mama she needed me to be. I even warned the fellas at @trapezeph that I was probably going to puke all over the place. They said it would be the first. No pressure, right?🤣
So I oiled up, said a prayer, climbed that freakin’ endless ladder, held onto the bar for dear life, and threw myself into the air anyway. EYES OPEN. A first for me, too. But not the first time Valor came to my rescue.

ME: Okay, so here’s the plan. I’ll ring the doorbell and you make sure they can see your cute little face through their window.
ZOEY: Okay, why?
ME: So that they’ll think you’re selling Girl Scout cookies and open the door.
ZOEY: But then they’ll be disappointed because I’m not.
ME: Nope, we’ve got something even better than Girl Scout cookies.
ZOEY: Mom!! There is NOTHING better than Girl Scout cookies.
ME: Zoey, we’re getting people to vote, and democracy is even better than Girl Scout cookies.

How in the 🌎 did that happen?!!! Remember what I said a few posts back...apparently I’m an idiot. Lol🤦♂️😂
Today I set a new PB, ran my second #sub3 marathon and more importantly hit my goal of B.Q’ing. #Boston2020 here I come!!!😊. I am 100% #thankful for every single one of you who cheered and supported me via Facebook, Instagram, text,...etc. Pushing hard on that course was all because I knew you were watching and following. I even ran my fastest 5km (of the 8 of them) from 35-40 knowing a sub 3 would only happen if I pushed harder then I ever have before! I am shocked, surprised and overwhelmed and now terribly hungry 😋. Lol Off to eat my age in burgers and beer. Or maybe it should be 🍕 since I am in Chicago😜🤷♂️
