This morning’s Recovery Ride 🚴♀️isn’t pretty, but who has time for pretty!
Screw pretty…ride gritty! 💥👊
Let go of making your workouts pretty and perfect (you’ll be waiting a long time), but instead make them happen MESSY as all get out!
It’s just 💦 water!
Running in the 🌧 is so refreshing. It washes away the heaviness of the world for just a bit. I’ll take it! ✌️
Visibility can mean different things to different people.
➡️ Finally mustering up the courage to show up to a run with a sports bra on instead of that long sleeve shirt you always wear to cover up your arms you've never felt were attractive.
➡️ Leaving the hot, clingy leggings at home and opting for your comfy running shorts that show a little more skin...and cellulite too for that matter, but allow you to run free and less constricted.
➡️ Maybe even showing up for a run...PERIOD, instead of wasting yet another day dreaming of becoming a runner because you always felt like you didn't fit that title or belong.
Visibility can mean all of these things and so much more.
This week my friend I want to encourage you to:
✅ THINK about what MAKING YOURSELF VISIBLE means to you.
✅ IDENTIFY where in your life you've been hiding and intentionally being invisible.
✅ DECIDE to step out, speak up, and share more of your amazing beauty.
Let's lift each other up and celebrate making ourselves more visible in this world!
Post in the comments below 1️⃣ way you'll make yourself more VISIBLE this week!
Love ❤️ & Running 👟
A little tired this AM, but nothing ☕️ can’t fix. Preparing to. beat the heat 🔥 and rock my 5 mile run.👟
What about you?
What distance or time are you gettjn’ after today? Let me know in the comments. 😁
Wrapping up my “Van Life Vacation” with Buddy! Coaching Over Coffee will resume next Thursday at 7:30 am MST (6:30 am PST/9:30 am EST)
See ya then! 🚐
Do you find yourself waking up super-dog 🐶 early to get your run in?
You know…before the rest of the house wakes up 🔆 so you have a little time to yourself before the day quickly moves ahead. 🔜
Or sandwiching your run 👟 smack dab in the middle of the day in lieu of eating that dang sandwich for lunch because you know it’s the only time of day where you get a full hour JUST to yourself.
Maybe even tacking your run onto the end of the workday before heading home because you know you’ll be pulled in all sorts of directions once you walk through that door. ⬅️ ⬆️ ⬇️ ➡️
Well, if any of those scenarios sound familiar I want to CONGRATULATE 🙌 you for striving for more with your running and fitness. Carving out time ⏰ to make yourself and your runs a priority.
WELL DONE MY FRIEND! 👊
But I got ONE MORE question❓for you!
Yah…just ONE. 1️⃣
Are you feeling stressed to make it ALL happen? Feeling anxious, rushed, and disconnected with your runs?
If so, I’d love ❤️ for you to do ONE simple thing this week with your running.
Continue striving (because I know you can), but lighten the stress load by warming up longer before your run (who cares if your overall mileage is less), relax your pace just a little (so your shoulders soften a bit while you run), and intentionally focus on your breath while you’re running (so it’s calm and controlled).
There are always ways to STRIVE toward what you want, but this week try doing it without STRESSING to make it happen!

🪟 WIndow install first thing this morning!
Sorry I won’t be able to hop on LIVE and spend a few minutes with you on our thoroughly great Thursday coaching session! 🙃
Today is the fourth and final phase of replacing my old crank windows in my 1959 old home that I love. ❤️
It’s taken me about 2 1/2 years to get them all replaced (saving and paying cash 💰), but today they will all be replaced and then I can move on to my next home project. 😁
I will be back next Thursday at 7:30 am MST and I will do a better job of reminding you ahead of time so you can join me LIVE and I can help move you forward with your running and fitness.
Until then my beautiful running (or soon to be) friends… go make your Thursday, thoroughly GREAT! ✌️
Coach Pamela 👟
We will resume our regularly scheduled program (aka Coaching Over Coffee with Pamela) next Thursday at 7:30 am MST!
Sorry folks… my kids forgot their lunch and I’ve gotta “run” these up to them…like now! 🤪
My apologies, but this mama’s gotta do, what she’s gotta do!
❌ Don’t let “busy” stand in the way of consistency…

✅ The Simple 5 Step Framework to Finally Create a Running Plan that Fits Your Busy Life
This Masterclass is sure to show you a better way.
Is consistency and a "better way" worth it?
Heck yah it is.
Well then, if you and I can both agree on that, then you don’t want to miss this final Masterclass I’ll be offering:

Snag your seat and join me tomorrow!
👟 Your Running & Fitness is About to Change in a BIG Way!
✅ SAVE YOUR SEAT by going to...
If you’re tired of starting, stopping, and stressing when it comes to training for your desired running distance and you’re shoving your life into a cookie-cutter training plan you found online that doesn’t actually fit with the reality of your busy life…this can be the missing puzzle piece you’ve been waiting for.
Join me and learn this simple framework that will help you create a running plan that sets you up for success, allows you to be consistent with your running and workouts, and do it in a way that works with the busyness of your life and the reason you’re running in the first place.
I’ve gone before you and dialed in the details - I know exactly the steps you need to take, when you need to take them, and how to fast-track you toward creating consistency, crafting a plan, and moving you confidently across your finish line...all in the time you actually have.
If you’re committed to making this the year you finally have a plan that fits perfectly into the busyness of your life, one that YOU designed for yourself, I can’t wait to fast-track you there.

30 minute power walk (with a tad bit of incline) does the trick when you’re traveling! 👟👟
Friends…something is ALWAYS better than nothing. Keep it simple and you’ll simply….make it happen.😉
My kids and I are taking advantage of a 2-Hour School ❄️ Delay!
(No ❌FB Live Today)
Ever since I was very young there was always a discussion about the importance of investing. Taking my hard earned money and investing it into a home, the stock market, my children’s education, or my business, with the hope of amplifying that money into an even greater amount than what it originally started out as.
Getting me the biggest bang for my buck!
When I looked up “investing” or “to invest,” there were a couple definitions I came across, but I thought this one was the most fitting for what I was trying to express to you today.
➡️ “Devote (one's time, effort, or energy) to a particular undertaking with the expectation of a worthwhile result.”
For me, two words jumped out - “devote” and “worthwhile.”
Thinking through this, I realized there was rarely, if ever, any discussion growing up of me devoting my hard earned money into my health or wellness. It wasn’t believed to be worthwhile.
It was actually wasteful or irresponsible. 😲
Spending any sort of money on a massage, a facial, a pedicure, a coach, or anything that made me feel better about myself, just wasn’t encouraged.
And I get it. I came from a hard-working, middle class family who valued work and the money it produced. My parents were raised by parents who lived through the depression and knew how to really stretch a dollar. They worked extremely hard and only spent money on things that were “necessary.”
❌ Devoting money toward something INSIDE ourselves wasn’t worthwhile.
But fortunately I never bought into that belief.
Yes…I struggle here and there with this scarcity mindset. But I know I’m a “worthwhile result” to pour into, invest in, and devote my time, effort, and energy.
So I’m curious…
How much time, effort, or energy have YOU devoted to the undertaking of YOU with the expectation of YOU receiving a worthwhile result?
✔️ Investing in yourself?
✔️ In your health?
✔️ In your body?
✔️ Feeling good about YOU?
I want to encourage you today to consider the massive ROI you will gain, your kids will gain, your company will gain, your significant other will gain, by you DECIDING to invest in YOU!
