@bmwdallasmarathon #RacePhotos! - 1. My goal for 2019 will be to use these as #BeforePics in a future post! But, I am proud of my form! I used to lean forward a lot, causing me neck and lower back pain that I no longer suffer at races! 🙌🏾 - 2. “Who is that lady with me?!” I have no idea! 😂. She ran up from behind me and linked her arm in mine, as we approached a timing mat and said, “Let’s do this together! Oooh, there’s a photographer, too! We’ll get a pic!” Then, she released my arm and ran off again! 🤷🏾‍♀️😜😂 #Runners #RunningCommunity ❤️ - #run #running #runnersofinstagram #womenrunning #womensrunningcommunity #bmwdallasmarathon #bmwdallasmarathon2018 #bmwdallashalfmarathon #halfmarathon #rundallas #teamsparkle #blkrunners #blackrunners #blackgirlsrun #bgr

Half marathon #35 is a wrap! No pics from the course today because my focus was on running a good race! So, just a couple of start line pics, and after race pics with my bling and the #instafamous @runannie! I have continually missed her at every race until today, and it was so wonderful to meet such a great athlete and super cool person! Annie, “You’re the best!” 😍 - On another note, I get lots of compliments on my outfits and lipstick at almost every race, but today I got the BEST COMPLIMENT EVER! A running coach on the course with another participant said, “You’ve got great form and you’re looking strong! Go get it, girl!” I’ve been working on my form for more than a year! That comment felt so good, and it motivated me to keep doing what I was doing and finish strong! 👊🏾 - #halfmarathon #runningmotivation #instafriends #racecation #runcation #running #runners #runningcommunity #runnersofinstagram #womenrunning #womensrunningcommunity #womenrunners #blackrunners #blkrunners #blackgirlsrun #bgr #rundallas #bmwdallasmarathon #dallasmarathon #teamsparkle

The @bmwdallasmarathon 5K took us on a tour of #DowntownDalllas, and an area called #DeepEllum where there is a wealth of great #StreetArt! I even found a Lion! 🦁♥️😍 - Also, are a pic of me after playing inside of some cars at the #BMW display at the #Expo. And, a selfie of me in my new BMW Dallas Marathon Weekend Series jacket, for participating in both days of racing! #RunAllTheRaces #GetAllTheSwag! 💙 - #5k #racecation #runcation #running #runners #runningcommunity #runnersofinstagram #womenrunning #womensrunningcommunity #womenrunners #blackrunners #blkrunners #blackgirlsrun #bgr #rundallas #bmwdallasmarathon #dallasmarathon #ucanrundallas #art #streetart #streetartists #dallasstreetart #dallas

Well, it was a freezing and rainy morning, but I got it done! My 5K this morning took us on a nice tour of downtown Dallas! I really enjoyed this course, and will post additional pics in my Instagram Stories shortly. - After the race, we received beautiful mylar blankets with the BMW and race logos, boxed water and snacks, @barefootwine wine/sparkling wine, @samueladamsbeer, and flavored spiked ale! I might have been a little intoxicated! 😜😂😍 #SoMuchSwag - #5K #startline #finishline #racecation #runcation #running #runners #runningcommunity #runnersofinstagram #womenrunning #womensrunningcommunity #womenrunners #blackrunners #blkrunners #blackgirlsrun #bgr #rundallas #bmwdallasmarathon #dallasmarathon #ucanrundallas #teamsparkle #beatyesterday

#Expo, #StartLine and #FinishLine at @bmwdallasmarathon are quite fancy! The finish is lined with BMWs and the finish festival is being held in a park just outside #DallasCityHall. It’s full of gorgeous white tents with #BMW logos, and all of the trees in the park are covered with beautiful white lights! This is the most fabulous finish I’ve seen! More pics tomorrow! 💙 - - #expo #raceexpo #racecation #runcation #running #runners #runningcommunity #runnersofinstagram #womenrunning #womensrunningcommunity #womenrunners #blackrunners #blkrunners #blackgirlsrun #bgr #rundallas #bmwdallasmarathon #dallasmarathon #ucanrundallas

Here we go! Just arrived in Dallas for @bmwdallasmarathon! I’ve never been here before, so this is exciting! Thank you @genucan for the race entry! - Headed to check in at my hotel, and then hit the Expo! - You know I couldn’t just do the one race, when there was an option for the #BMWWeekendSeries! #5K Saturday and #HalfMarathon Sunday, gets me a #BonusMedal, a #BMW Jacket and an extra #FinishersShirt! 🙋🏾‍♀️😜😍 - 5K #96 Half #35 - #racecation #runcation #running #runners #runningcommunity #runnersofinstagram #womenrunning #womensrunningcommunity #womenrunners #blackrunners #blkrunners #blackgirlsrun #bgr #rundallas #bmwdallasmarathon #dallasmarathon

My little baby and me at @laceuprunning #ReindeerRun, on Sunday! Looks like “one of us” was having fun! 😂. I love my baby!

My daughter Eryn and I had a great time doing the #LexusLaceUp #5K together this morning! This was my 95th #5K! 😍 - #Lexus truly throws a top notch event! They gave us the option of receiving a #SantaHat or #ReindeerAntlers, beautiful #Lexus reusable water bottles and supplied us with orange/lemon/cucumber infused water to fill them, they had charging stations for our phones, free massages, IPAs from #SierraNevada and we got coupons for free food from one of 5 popular food trucks! They called it “Food Truck Brunch!” And, the medals are awesome, too! 🙌🏾 - I also got a fabulous medal from @officialblackgirlsrun today, as a member of #TeamBGR! 💖 So, you know I was excited about that! #MoreBling! 😜😂😍 - Finally, a great big THANK YOU to @carleemcdot and @laceuprunning for the 2 FREE ENTRIES to today’s race! 🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾 - #runalltheraces #getallthebling #running #runners #runningcommunity #womenrunning #runnersofinstagram #womensrunningcommunity #teamsparkle #mommydaughtertime #blackgirlsrun #bgr #lexuslaceupseries

I can’t thank @ivieanne enough for the free entry I won from her for @runforaclaus! This race was wonderful! So much swag, photos with Santa and a great big huge beautiful medal! 🎅🏼🎄😍 - We received Santa hats and beards, mugs, cookies, hot chocolate, chocolate milk, and red/green m&m’s! “Seriously?!” I definitely recommend @runforaclaus to everyone looking for a race to do over the holidays! (There was a 1 mile race for the kids, too!) 😍🎄🎁 - Oh, my outfit changed because the other items I ordered arrived last night! This is what I had planned to wear! 🤷🏾‍♀️ - #christmasrace #runforaclaus #ocmarathon #5k #funrun #santa #running #runners #run #runningcommunity #runnersofinstagram #womenrunning #womensrunningcommunity #runwalk #fitness #teamsparkle

#ThrowbackThursday to about this time, a year ago! My good friend Chris @canadacmc slowed her pace down just enough for me to be able to keep up, so we could do the #5K together! But, we were moving too fast for me to take this jacket off! 😂😜😍 - #RunningFriends are the best! ♥️ - #runnersofinstagram #womensrunningcommunity #runningcommunity #instafriends #instafam #running #runners #womenrunners #womenrunning #5ks #rnrsa #rnrsanantonio #rnrsanantonio2017 #runrnr #runrocknroll #friends #yourpaceormine

#MedalMonday on a Tuesday because I finally received the last 2 medals from the the Giants Race series I completed, in September! I simply refused to post them without the whole collection! 🤷🏾‍♀️ - I did this series because of my friend @janeruns262 who knows I love the bling, and told me I could do 4 races and get 7 medals! That’s definitely my kind of math! 😜😂🤩 - Then, I found the #SFOriginalsRaceSeries (4 Races) that also listed the #SFGiantsRace as it’s final race, and I completed those races to get the lovely medal on the far right! #ILoveTheBling! 😍 - 2018 Medal Count: 103! - #blingwore #blingchaser #medalchaser #medalcollector #medaladdict #runforthebling #irunforthebling #runforbling #runalltheraces #getallthebling #running #runners #runningmotivation #runningcommunity #runnersofinstagram #sfgiants #giantsrace #giantrace #sforiginals
