Call me Brett Favre cause I’m coming out of retirement. 🏃🏻♀️This year, I started to finally miss running after hanging up the Saucony’s in 2016. When I moved to Chicago, I wanted nothing to do with my racing past. Signing up for marathons and halfs was one of the best ways to disguise how important running was for my eating disorder. I started slow, going on a run once a month, if that, to keep the addiction at bay. Maybe it’s the weather, the fact that it’s racing season or maybe, just maybe, I’m making progress burying the ED voice. Distance running: I miss ya, let’s give this another go.
Peaks and valleys. Having one of those weeks where I’d really like to bundle up for winter and climb a damn mountain, but alas, I live in the Great Plains now. Missing you, Wild Wild West. 🍂⛰🧤
🤘🏻smore season 🤘🏻

Had a moment tonight where I looked at my temporary home and thought, “holy shit, I’ve got it good.” As free as I’ll ever be and fearless enough to make dumb choices that will turn into the best of memories. Feeling all the good life feels in this midwestern jewel 💎.
Back at my happy place for @brewpointcoffee’s female empowerment month ✌🏻✨. If you’re in Elmhurst next Friday, come to our free yoga class with @nextyoga at the Roastery & shop the Athleta trunk show 🤗.
You know when you see a kid throwing a temper tantrum because they want something and the parent is like no, you don’t need that, let’s go? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I feel like being in your late twenties is a lot like playing the role of both the kid and the parent. Over the last two weeks, I’ve had to make like 4 decisions that I know are the healthiest choices for the long run but damn the immediate fallout is rough. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Do I want to make more money? Yes. Do I want to go back to being unhappy at work? Nah. Do I want to eat 6 pieces of cake for breakfast? Yes. Do I want to feel like crap for 2 days? Nah. Cardi B is all, “I like texts from my exes when they want a second chance.” And I’m like, yeah, this attention feels real nice, but also NAHHH✌🏻 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So here’s to making decisions you don’t necessarily want to make that help push you toward better things. Focus on the gooooood. ✨
Yes, I made cookies with a sprinkle mix entitled “Monster Mash” on September 5th when it was 97 degrees outside. My last name is Casper, what do you people want from me?!?! 👻🧟♀️🎃🍂🍪🧙🏻♀️#basicwitch #friendlyghost #pumpkinspicelife
