Obsession. Mostly out of curiosity, I've learned tons of different techniques and watched hundreds of hours of wrestling at this point. Glad I was able to use that knowledge and share it with Eddy ( @eddypet ) in a way that allowed both of us to improve in our own ways! As you can see, Eddy's a fast learner. The wrist snap took me years to figure out. He got it right after one try. Safe travels, Eddy. Best of luck in upcoming competitions and thank you for being an awesome training partner. Training with you helped me jump levels! See you in Tokyo next summer.

“Cripple Creek” - The calming sound of water running downstream Now, it's hot in California And up north it's freezing cold And this living off the road Is getting pretty old So I guess I'll call up my big mama Tell her I'll be rolling in Bet you know, deep down, I'm kinda tempted To go and see my Bessie again Up on Cripple Creek she sends me If I spring a leak she mends me I don't have to speak she defends me A drunkard's dream if I ever did see one Lyrics: Robbie Robertson #cripplecreek #stream #downstream #creek #runningdownadream #watersounds #inthewoods #soundsofnature

It’s your thing Do what you wanna do . . 16 miles this morning with @mel_words & @grapegrl05 ! 1-12 felt great, 13&14 were super hard 🥵 and 15-16 felt much better! . . While on our run, @Mel_words asked about my goal for @runsra_cim and I initially responded, “Well, 2:45, but...” I had to consciously stop myself and explain that I need to stop putting that BUT in there. After talking with @ryanmiller34 yesterday I realized that I’ve been putting that but in there for other people’s sake because I get a feeling that my goals make them uncomfortable, and maybe evoke judgment. Putting that but in there, plants a seed of doubt that I don’t need. I’m ambitious. I’m a dreamer. I’m also well aware of the level of dedication, commitment, consistent effort, and hard work that I need to put in in order to make my dreams come true. . . . All I can do is my very best. All I can do is stay diligent, stay engaged, and keep showing up. Some days are really hard, and some days are really easy. Today was a tough one but I’m going to show up again tomorrow, and every day after so I can do what I wanna do. . . . Running gives me a sense of power and control in a profession and world that feels completely out of control. Completely beyond my capacity for impact. But when I wake up and put on my running shoes, when I show up for myself day in and day out, I can see my actions having direct consequences of progress and I regain a sense of power in my ability to make change for the better. Even if it is just in my own tiny existence. . . . #keepshowingup #nobuts #noexcuses #gritchicks #dreamit #believeit #relentlessrunner #getitdone #gritty #runnersanddreamers #radrabbit #runinrabbit #runarete #runaretesacramento #thisgirlcan #inspiringwomenrunners #runnersworld #runtoinspire #runforlife #strongwomen #runningdownadream #daydreamer #dontquityourdaydream #marathoner #marathontraining #runningmotivation #strongereveryday #nuunlife #nuunlove #teamnuun

Crazy day yesterday sitting in on the evolution of E Sports and negotiations on the birth of some major projects in the future. Met the worlds best Madden players and fantasy draft experts and excited about my coach and partner being in the same office building with Gary V. Haven’t gotten star struck in a while until I seen him come out the building. #Onward #RunningDownADream

8/11 Great Race 42! Our team, Chunky Monkeys had a great day on the short course.I ran 3 miles, Danny biked 10 miles and Alicia kayaked 2 miles. Our team finished in 1:47:22, and placed 12th in our mixed age group. Our husbands were the true winners of the day managing the littles with a fun run and keeping them happy while we did the course. #lakedaysarethebestdays #thegreatrace2019 #runbikepaddle #chunkymonkeys #runningdownadream #rossestakeonny #jackchaseross #hazellucilleross

Shadows and Cone Flowers -10x8” -oil. I went to a new fav place to paint - @bigtrees_nursery in Kanarraville. Oh my word if you haven’t been to this magical place you are missing out! They welcomed our Thur night painting group with open arms and we all hunkered down in wonderfully mysterious spots. I couldn’t resist the lure of the shed shadows and the exuberant coneflowers in front. So looking forward to going back.

Good to be back in the studio after a post-kiln-firing week! It’s always a bit of an adjustment to go from the full-throttle energy and push it takes to finish all the pieces, bisque, glaze all the work, load and fire, wait a day, and finally unload, price and pack up all the work. It’s both exhilarating and exhausting in equal measure! We’ve learned we need about a week to rest, reflect on the work, and catch up on the rest of our lives (aka that huge pile of laundry) before we jump back into studio production. It is in these rhythms that we are able to do our best work, without getting burned out. Thankful that we work for ourselves and have the ability to adjust to our natural creative energies. #sabbath #creatingmargins

Four passes and 3 hours later, we are starting to look like farmable land. But we are not done yet: Step 1: Kill the grass ✅ Step 2: Initial tilling ✅ Step 3: rake out debris (rocks and roots) 🔲 Step 4: Loosen the subsoil with the broadfork 🔲 Step 5: Form out the beds 🔲 Step 6: Add amendments🔲 Step 7: Final till and bed prep for planting 🔲 My body is sore, but my mind is rejuvenated. I absolutely love this gig! It gives me energy being out there working with the land and working on my dream.

Today I was reminded of a time when I didn’t have a dollar to my name, a beat ass car, and a crazy dream of being the best MMA fighter in the world. I think about what I’ve sacrificed to chase that dream. The years of being broke, hungry, and all the ass kickings I have had to take. All the times I fought killers in the cage for no money just for the opportunity to fight in the UFC and prove I am one of the baddest dudes on the planet. I still have that crazy dream and I’m still willing to take those ass kicking and make those sacrifices until I’m the best. I’m on this ride until the wheels fall off. #burntheboats #ufc #runningdownadream #hardwork #sacrifice #grind

🚘 She’s a bit dirty and a little dented from a butthole neighbor that can’t park. But she’s back in Action!! Bessy is back! So happy to have my girl back. . 🙊🙉🙈I’ve never been in such a car predicament. It was a bit of a financial effort and car share effort. But thanks to Dan at Tempe Imports, @kevinblack9000 , Cameron Morris (and family), @__.jessica14morris.__ , and @_dstock34 , we’re back on the road. . Now I can visit the Fam Bam in Prescott Valley here soon. @reneehromish . Whew! #backontheroad #oldcarsmell #bessy #toyotacorollaxrs #mylove #mycar #runningdownadream #love #car #carinaz

DAY 96 IN THE BOOKS 📚 🔥🏃‍♂️🇺🇸 SONG: Look What I’ve Become by @mikeposner feat. @tydollasign 🎶‼️🎶‼️ Today’s run was for you brother you’ll be crushing those miles again very soon 💪💪 COOL STORY 🕺 Was chatting with my sister @carlysilverwood a few days ago and she told me something really interesting. Apparently she’s been telling lots of friends and people she meets about what I’m doing out here, and every time she refers to what I’m doing she uses the word “crazy”. Well she thought about it and doesn’t think it’s crazy anymore but rather INCREDIBLE! A lot of people have called what I’m doing crazy or joked that I had to have lost a couple brain cells to do this thing. I don’t take it personally, rather I believe a lot of people just mistake passion with crazy sometimes. ALL I AM DOING IS CHASING DOWN A DREAM. I THINK IT IS “CRAZY” FOR PEOPLE NOT TO DO THAT. #3to3000 #dreamchasing #runningdownadream #bradyrunsamerica #day96 #lookwhativebecome #mikeposner

For those who don’t watch my stories...after the crushing disappointment of my last job not working out, I quickly refocused my energy and made some moves. I got my old job back as a painting instructor, and I began pulling together my portfolio, compiling years of work that I’ve been too afraid to show anyone. I went to a tattoo shop I was told was open to taking on an apprentice. I had a panic attack in my car before going in. I was so surprised at how nice everyone was to me. I was sure they’d tell me to fuck off! The artist I asked to see was very nice and loved my work. She showed it to other artists, who also complimented me. I couldn’t believe it! I was shaking. She told me she already had an apprentice, but still wanted to take me on anyway. She’s going to ask the owner and get back to me...even if I don’t get this apprenticeship, the experience has been so amazing, and done wonders for my confidence in my art. I now know I can approach other artists. This is something I’ve dreamed of for years and never thought possible...thank you to everyone for your support and kind words. It sounds so cliché, but truly, if everything seems to be falling apart, sometimes it means we just need to change our perspective and start putting our energy in a new direction. Don’t ever give up. 🖤 . . . . #plussizefashion #fatshion #muotd #lifeupdate #life #artist #alternativegirl #girlswithtattoos #plussizealternative #plussizegoth #weirdgirl #dontgiveup #anxiety #mentalhealth #fatbabe #bodyacceptance #bodypositive #runningdownadream #transformation #gettingshitdone #plussizeblogger #witchesofinstagram

"Quadzilla." Want the secret to looking this good? People often talk about workouts, diets, mentality, PED's, or special rituals... No, no, no. They aren't telling you what I'm about to tell you. Did you guess the secret? Well, here it is... Photoshop! That's right. Within minutes, crowds of people will flock to you, wondering... whether it hurt when you fell down from heaven. Alright. I had way too much fun writing a satire ad for....photoshop, apparently. #trolled If you're in Phuket, message @shot_after_shot to book your photo shoot. He does great work!

Still Standing -10x8” -oil. The finished painting. What a great morning to just spend time letting my mind wander about the history and families that stayed here. I met the current owner whose family has had it for a couple generations. He still has fond memories of the good days in the cabin.

The only thing that matters is that you keep going. ✨ The only way you truly fail at a marathon is to stop taking the next step. ✨ Sometimes you’re running, sometimes you’re walking, and sometimes you’re crawling. It doesn’t matter. ✨If you’re moving forward, you will succeed. #timgrahl #runningdownadream #inspirationalquotes

Tonight's three-mile run reminded me of how I recently almost had a couple friends from San Diego convinced that the mosquito is Wisconsin's state bird. Had to run tonight so I can go to a much needed rock show on Thursday. Marathon training has officially begun so I can't be skipping any runs. 🏃‍♀️3️⃣🏃‍♀️ . . #fuckmosquitos #marathontraining #mondaygrind #runningdownadream #kidneydonor #livingdonor #donatelife #livingkidneydonor #organdonor #irunwithone #rock1kidney

I have loved this old place for awhile. I am fascinated by old buildings interior - that was my morning subject. I didn’t do it justice but I gave it a good try. The video makes the painting look a lot light in value than it is.

“RELUCTANCE TO DIE,” was the sign on a tree in a Bristlecone Grove before we arrived at this spot. Another sign read, “Adversity,” and talked about the tree’s long and painstaking growth process with scarce resources...which ultimately lead it to be stronger, with compact rings and resistant to decay which allows it to continue to stand from its birth 100 BC til long after its death in 1400 AD. This tree is still standing. (See my story for the trees!) . . Of course I couldn’t help but think of the marathon...we slowly build, making ourselves gradually stronger, trusting the process day in and day out. And on the big day, sometimes we die. But we keep standing, we keep “clinging to life,” like that tree. We keep moving forward, one foot in front of the other. All the minutes that feel so hard, make us stronger, resistant to the urge to quit. And even after our mind or our body feels like it’s breaking down, we’re able to keep going, reluctant to let ourselves die until we’ve crossed that line. . . Keep showing up. . . #nationalparks #americathebeautiful #dayinanddayout #growth #progress #trusttheprocess #marathoner #marathontraining #mindandbody #runinrabbit #radrabbit #runnersanddreamers #dontquityourdaydream #gritchicks #monitorthebeat #womensrunning #womenofrunning #runningdownadream #runarete #runaretesacramento #thisgirlcan #runtoinspire #runforlife #strongwomen #stronger #grit #riseandgrind
