Note to self (and anyone else):

A “rest day” does NOT equal doing a seven mile walk/hike/spin, eating less, going to the gym for a “casual” workout, or running even a mile.

A rest day is doing day to day activities, or laying around with a bowl of cereal and Netflix. A rest day is being lazy, giving your body a COMPLETE break.

There is nothing wrong with not moving. It is essential. Rest days are for rebuilding.

Hello, my lovely followers! Sorry I haven’t been very active lately, but for those of you who don’t know, I’ve had a pretty serious kidney infection for the last week. I’m finally feeling like my normal self today! Unfortunately, I fell way behind on my running for this month due to the infection. I was pretty bummed initially, but that’s life. I’m working on getting healthy again. Then I can focus on running. 

In other news, I’m getting my next tattoo this week! I feel like I haven’t been on here in so long, what did I miss while I was gone? Update me? I’ve missed you guys! :)

Why do I love runners?

Because the fastest of you stay after you finish to cheer on the rest of us.

Because you encourage the person who just started.

Because you treat this solitary event as a team sport where I am the star athlete.

Runners support each other like no other.

Runners are immediately friends.

You always have something to talk about.

Kickin' [way more than] Asphalt
Hey, I'm JoEllen! I'm 21, gluten free, and I run marathons for fun.  

Four score and two eating disorders ago, I hated myself. But life's too short. Whether I'm lifting, channeling my inner asana, or pounding the pavement, I always try to incorporate a little self-love. And you should too :)  

Feel free to ask me anything or just stop by to say hello :)
