O-M-G - it's official!! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I'm all signed up for the Dopey Challenge 2019! No turning back now - time to simply lean in to my training & trust the process. Grave Diggers - I'll see you again on the #wdwmarathon course come January 13. Don't dig my grave just yet ;) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Last year I battled injuries from late summer into the fall & my training suffered. I was never able to run more than 13 miles before the marathon. In fact, before I ran the #WDWmarathon2018 I had never run longer than 14 miles - IN MY LIFE! These guys were right around the 14 mile mark - can I tell you how excited I was to see them - and feel absolutely ready to tackle my final 12 miles?!?! This year, I feel super strong & ready to run all 4 races of #thedopeychallenge. And by run I mean run fast from one character photo op to the next, because hey - what fun is it to run at Disney if you don't stop to pose with the characters?!?! Last year's marathon portion of #thedopeychallenge was my first ever full length marathon. My goal was simply to have fun, enjoy the ride & finish in the upright position. While I set a PR (because it was my first marathon - EVER), it wasn't anything to write home about. Now it's time to see how fast I can finish the #WDWMarathon trained, feeling strong & still stopping for pics. I mean I'm never going to look at a Disney Marathon for a BQ - but it's still one heck of an experience! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Ready to take on this challenge? General registration opens for Dopey & all other races on Thursday! Comment below if you'lll be there too! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #rundisney #dopeychallenge2019 #amIcrazy #wdwmarathonweekend #fitpackrunning #findingtherealjen #ifitdoesntchallengeyouitdoesntchangeyou #run48.6 #mustbedopey #marathonrunner #dopeyrunner

Am I Crazy Or Should I Be Using This Brown Rug In My Living Room? Saw It On A Sourcing Trip At Elte Yesterday & Can’t Get It Out Of My Mind | Montana Labelle Design.

I’m taking on 2nd grade! I’m so excited to be apart of Sherman ISD and joining the Falcon team at Fairview Elementary. It definitely wasn’t easy leaving my Bonham family but I know this is the right step forward for me. Can’t wait to start this new adventure. 🍎👩🏼‍🏫 #2ndgradehereicome | #teachersofinstagram | #2ndgradeteacher | #fairviewfalcons | #shermanisd | #newclassroom | #letterboardquotes | #newjobandawedding | #amicrazy #mscobbsclassroom | #almostmrsschuelkesclassroom

Apparently I climbed up that slide... hmmmm didn't look so scary up close. What a wild adventure. Got me out of my comfort zone and forced me to trust in myself and those around me. Was I scared? Yup. Did I for a moment think I wasn't going to be able to do it? NOPE! I knew I would make it!! #postivethinking #trapdike #adk #adirondacks #amicrazy #crazy #believe #findyourself #mountains #slide #bearcrawlforthewin #fdau

Why the boots? Because I’m crazy 😜 and it’s fun. I feel like a StarWars character with these on! Haha 🔥

Guys isn’t Instagram just an extension of our consciousness.?! This just came to me whilst riding my bike last night, like I knew it already. But it landed differently. We’re having these conversations with each other, here, instead of inside our heads. A part of me thinks or feels something, an urge to express. I share it with you, and I get feedback. If it wasn’t on here, it would either live in my head and I’d have these conversations with my selves, or I’d share it with friends (both of which I still do), but the internet provides a broader and more dynamic feedback mechanism. The problem with this stuff just living in my head is that I don’t get feedback other than from my own conditioning and belief-systems. (Not all of these are designed to support me) and with people I see everyday, feedback can be biased or familiar. Or perhaps we don’t trust it as much because with closeness can come complacency? Ya feel me? @rachel_pedroso touched on this in one of her posts yesterday and she is one example of many people on here I feel connected to, (mostly through nofucks given sharing) but have also never even met. Something really delicious about that shit. Also, just like I need breaks from my brain, I of course also need breaks from the internet. One thing I try do when I wake up, is start my day off with connecting with me first, not my phone. Upon wake up, resist that urge to pick it up like scratching a rash, and instead just sit and check in with all my selves. Who’s here today? Anxious Annie? Empowered Emily? Calm Caroline? All of you? OKAY HI. Cus at least then I know this is my own shit, not shit I’ve picked up from my phone. That stuff is contagious af #amicrazy #weshouldallbe #thisplaceisweird #existentialcrisisanyone ?

Why 🤷🏻‍♀️

Happy first birthday son - Sorry about the hat 🎉 #amicrazy #yas #apricotbaby #cavapom

Just got my @darkironfitness lifting straps! This shit’s getting real! I was gonna wait until my next back day (Wednesday) to give them a try, but I’m so excited, I think I’m gonna do a few deadlifts to break them in. #amicrazy #prolly #doingitanyway #bodybuilder #bodybuilding #darkironfitness #gettingbigger #iamlove #iamloveandsoareyou
