This is one of my favorite graphics, thought I’d share it with ya!
I’ve been dedicated to doing my band work before every run. These moves help to activate my glutes. HERE’S a two-minute video for you to try if you’re interested!
For breakfast this week, we are switching things up. We are having egg sandwiches with Pepper Jack cheese, mushrooms, spinach, and chicken apple sausage on the side.
Brrr. It’s a chilly Monday morning here in Springfield! Our weekend plans changed a little bit when Jake got hit with some terrible sickness late Friday night, but we will get to that later. We grabbed an early dinner with some friends at Pappo’s Friday night. It was delcious and we love our time with Sam and Ryan.
My favorite breakfast date. He seems less amused by our food than I do. Typical. Also, robe life is the best life.
I shared my 2019 races yesterday (HERE), which got me thinking about some of my past races. I wanted to share two of them. This first one is from 2011. I had taken a break from running after high school cross country. When I moved back home my sophomore year of college, I started running more regularly again. My Dad and I did some 5ks together, and this is from one of them! I also used to dye my hair super blonde...
Here is my list of races for 2019! My A race is definitely the OKC Marathon, which is in April. Now that I have a marathon under my belt, I’m ready to knock out another one. I know each one will be a learning experience. I already have a few things I want to do differently this time around. One of my exciting pieces of news is that I got a running coach!! I’m working with Carlee at WAHOO! Running (HERE) and I am beyond excited. I wasn’t going to use a coach, but it all kind of just fell into my lap and Jake told me to go for it. I met Carlee at the Go Girl in OKC last year and we have stayed in touch ever since. She’s amazing and I feel super blessed to be able to learn from her. I have strict instructions on a few of these races, especially with my knee/ankle situation, so this list could change, but for now, this is the plan! The name of each race is hyperlinked if you want to read more about them. I want to work up to a 50k, but I'm not sure if that will be this year or next...

Friday morning was SO wonderful. It started with breakfast, followed by a facial and a massage. HUGE thank you to my amazing in-laws for the best Christmas present!
I am excited to be on Team Nuun for another year! I get discount codes to share with friends and family occasionally, so make sure you’re following on Instagram (@chelseakbradley) to get the code! I’ll also do some more giveaways this year. Nuun is delicious and a staple for staying hydrated in our home.
I write about whatever is going on each day. I want to use this space as a place to document my dissertation and training journeys.
