Бег зимой- квест. Неизвестно, какой будет тренировка. Выпал снег? 👍❄️ Будем топтать сугробы. Оттепель? Класс. Прыжки через лужи. Подморозило? Супер. Отрабатываем баланс и устойчивость. Скучать некогда. Впереди столько интересного. А сегодня немного СБУ. Пока покрытие позволяет. 😉
No último domingo concluí minha primeira #MeiaMaratona, durante 1hr 49min foram muitas sensações, me emocionei, sorri, brinquei e que prova linda e que energia incrível tem a #MaratonadeCuritiba... no início do ano coloquei como meta fazer 21km, eu não queria de jeito nenhum Curitiba, mas cuspi tanto pra cima que foi o que deu pra eu encaixar e creio que por vontade de Deus... A PROVA foi linda, aproveitei cada segundo, pela primeira vez corri aproveitando cada km, ME PRESERVEI, pois estava com um medo gigante de quebrar, eu estava sentindo dor na perna esquerda a mais de um mês, não queria caminhar ou não chegar pro tempo estimado que era entre 1:45 e 1:50, nenhuma das duas ultimas opções estava nos meus objetivos... Obrigada amor 💚 @coach_felipearaujo por sempre me incentivar e cobrar o melhor de mim nos treinos, sei que posso fazer melhor do que isso, vc me treinou pra ir melhor, mas por motivos que só eu vou entender eu preferi me preservar, espero não ter te decepcionado... obrigada @francine.bianca por topar revezar comigo e me acompanhar na maior parte dos treinos, treinar junto tornou tudo mais fácil e melhor, sem a sua companhia talvez eu não tivesse conseguido voltar a treinar. Obrigada a todos que de alguma forma estiveram torcendo por mim e pelos que me parabenizaram... essa foi apenas a primeira de muitas que ainda estão por vim... #FTmultisports#run#Cwb#running#runlovers#eucorro#corredoresderua#runners_of_insta#revezamentomaratonadecuritiba#MaratonadeCuritiba2018#revezamento#instarunner#runninggirl

++ SHOUT OUT WEDNESDAY ++
One of the thing that touches me the most with you guys is when you message me and talk to me about your achievements. What you went through during the race. What you did to overcome your challenge. How much you enjoyed your race until you reached the finish line.
I like reading your messages. And looking at your winning pictures, too!
I also appreciate when people write to me even though they didn't finish their race. Every race is unique whatever happens!
I truly believe that, as humans, we are all inter-connected and sharing our achievements makes us feel stronger.
I was so happy to hear that @mrthomang finished strong during last week-end's Borobudur Marathon. 🎉👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
With an incredibly hot weather, 90% of humidity level and a good amount of elevations on the route, Thomas fought from the beginning till the end. He had some low moments during the race, between the 28-34 km, he was even thinking about giving up.
But his fighting spirit came back and he was even able to really speed up his pace from the 37th km until he reached the finish line.🙇♀️
At the 34th km, Thomas thought: “I can finish strong! I began with a quick walking pace and eventually started running again just imagining I was running a 5km race."
I can imagine his joy from the last 5 km when he was overtaking the other marathoners shouting to him: "damn sir, how in hell can you still run?"
This still echoes in my memories.
Huge congrats @mrthomang, you have to be proud of what you achieved!
Now, enjoy your well deserved rest and I can’t wait to see your next winning pics.
What are your recent achievements? Big or small. It doesn't matter!! I'm looking forward to hearing about them.
Please, do not hesitate to tag #veroniquerun, comment and PM me to share your race stories with me. I would love to feature them out here.
Together we are stronger! 💪🏼🏃🏻♂️😍
For more gift ideas read previous postS!)) 41) These Adorable Rundies
These rundies are the cutest!
A cute little gift option for your female running friend.
Just keep in mind they aren’t meant for actual running, as they aren’t sweat-wicking.
42) Decorative Wooden Sign
Because it’s not enough for runners to tell everyone we run.
We need to put a sign up in our house too. 😉
43) Quality Yoga Mat
Also, having a quality yoga mat is essential for recovery practices.
You get long-term value from this one.
I’ve had my yoga mat for YEARS and it’s still going strong!
44) Gym Membership
Another quality investment, depending on the runner.
If you know they’re looking for cross-training options, providing them with a gym membership would be thoughtful.
45) Running Program
If you have a loved one who’s a newbie (or wannabe) runner, why not give them an investment to help them get started?
Oh, hey! I can help! 😉
My running program was designed for beginners to form a running habit long-term.
If you have a loved one who’s interested in forming a running habit this is a solid option.
46) Massage Appointment
This is probably one of the most foolproof gifts you could buy a runner.
We’re always looking for ways to recover our muscles from the miles run.
A quality massage is always needed.

Just be sure you know their running shoe preference beforehand.
And if you’re clueless as to what a good running shoe entails, get advice from your local running store.
48) Running Watch
On the pricier side, but there’s no runner who wouldn’t love one.
You really can’t go wrong with a Garmin Forerunner, but research other watch options to see which would work best for your running friend.
49) Wireless Headphones
This investment has been life-changing for me personally.
There’s no better way to step up your running experience than by purchasing wireless headphones.
In my opinion, they’ve honestly made my runs better all around.
It’s easier when you don’t have a cord getting wrapped up in your arms every 2-seconds
Obviously, a huge expense.
But, you never know, right? 🙂

This is the cutest idea like, EVER.
It’s also perfect for carb-loading before a runner’s next race!

And I don’t know many runners who wouldn’t love anything related to wine.
Especially post-run. 🙂
35) Quality Foot Scrub
Because we all know a runner’s feet need some serious TLC.
36) A Functional Gym Bag
Having a high-quality gym bag was a solid investment for me.
I no longer had to stuff my sweaty, running gear in my backpack.

Made by runners for runners.
This journal is perfect for logging miles.
It also comes in pretty, fun colors so that ‘s always a bonus.

This is such a thoughtful idea!
As long as your running friend doesn’t mind you use their bib for the project.

Or really any runner who loves the occasional night run from time to time.
Most headlamps even have a flashing light feature so runners can be extra safe on busy roads.
22) A Quality Foam Roller
Foam rolling is very beneficial for post-run recovery.
While runners sometimes opt for cheaper foam rollers to start with, any runner would love to have a more durable, effective foam roller to use!
23) Running Shades
I always say there’s no bigger buzzkill during a run than forgetting your sunglasses.
I hate when the sun gets in my eyes and ruins my running zen.
These sunnies are a budget-friendly option that provides all the protection a runner needs!
Hydration is the most important thing for a runner on the road!
I always tell people there has been no better investment for me running-wise than my Camelbak.
Knowing I’ll always have access to proper hydration has been such a game-changer.
25) Road ID
Allows you to customize a band with your medical information and emergency contacts for first responders.
A safety essential for every runner.

With this gift card, they’ll be all ready for their next carb-loading session.
29) This Adorable Running Mug
Every runner needs a running mug. It’s science. 😉
30) Touch Screen Thermal Gloves
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve worn regular gloves in the winter, only to get frustrated when I can’t use my phone with them on.
