greetings from germany
it’s awesome here, oh my gosh. similar enough to home that it’s comfortable and not a gigantic culture shock, but different enough to be extrememly interesting and an adjustment. i love it! anyways, my host student and their friend go to a fitness class, so yesterday i went along. i’d never actually been in a gym before (only track and xc and our school weight room) but it was...
Anonymous asked: Are you going to UVA for college?
i’ll be gone for 3 weeks… which is 3 weeks without running… but i’ll manage. it’s going to be a blast, but quite a while to not be able to run. ahhhhh i can’t wait! talk to you all july 6th!
When my coach tells me my time, then I look at the...

today's run: june 6, 2012
ah, being done with school is wonderful (: i woke up at 8:30, had a nutrigrain bar and some water, then drove over to the lake. i did about 5.5 miles. partway around the lake to where the trail splits, ran to the rec center and back. solid 43 minutes. it was pretty humid today, glad i got a (relatively) early start. afterwards i did 2 sets of 3 core exercises + 20 pushups and came home to eat...
there is an upwards of 80% chance i will cry at...

perfectionistbodyandsoul: and now i really want it to be tomorrow so i can go run on it again. well, this is quite relateable.
thanks guys! i now have thousands of pages of potential reading material at my fingertips (: time to take advantage of summer vacation!
I love running so much words cannot describe
skinny-forsummer2012: Sometimes i dread doing it but i always feel so refreshed after. Running gives me time to think and focus and just let everything go and not worry about all the stresses in life.

adistancerunner asked: Dang it, i messed that up. lmao but here are some other books: Running with the Buffaloes, Sub 4:00 the alan webb and the quest for the fastest mile, Pre, The Perfect Mile. All of them are really good! But whatever you do, MAKE SURE you read Once a Runner. I absolutely loved that book!
running books i need to read
born to run (this is kinda embarrassing to not have read. i started it on google books but then the sample section was over and there was a wait list at the library) once a runner why we run any other suggestions?
running the lake in the morning with ariana, and then going back in the evening for pictures. the amount of time i have spent there lately is rather large, but i don’t mind haha
It was being a runner that mattered, not how fast or how far I could run. The...– J. Bingham
this video is not running related whatsoever. but every year, it’s a tradition that at the end of the last class period of the school year, the seniors gather in the locker bay for a massive paper toss. so here’s a brief video of it (: yeah 2012! it’s been real, guys.
marrymechristianlouboutin asked: Congrats on graduating! & just so you know you're like my favorite running blog ever!!! :) will you check out my fitness blog? the link is located on my sidebar. :)

i’m sensing a celebratory run later. yeahhhhhh class of 2012!! (:
so, i decided i’m going to add a page to my blogs with a link and description to some of my favorite fitness tumblr blogs. when i first started my runblr, i was looking for the pages of other high school, competitive athletes who would be running similar events as me, etc. however, that’s quickly expanded into a collection of a variety of different people of ages, locations, and...
happy national running day!
held on the first wednesday of june each year (: today is our second to last day of high school, and seniors got out early, so ariana and i are headed to the lake to get a run in! three cheers for freedom! the weather is gorgeous, and this should be a fun run (:
Football Player vs. Runner
Football Player: Aw man football starts in a week. It's going to be so hard.
Runner: Aw man I have to wait a week until I can go on my ten mile runs again.
truth be told...
i get kinda irritable when i don’t run.
