#fathersday ♥️ : When you first meet someone, there are several things that you know instantly. When I met Matt, I always knew that he would be a great dad someday. During the years of trying to have a baby and being told it would not be possible, I remember thinking ... but wait .. Matt has to be a father, he is meant to be a father, I can't be the reason why he isn't ... Throughout this time, he never stopped being by my side and keeping up hope. I will never forget that ... This is why seeing him today, as a father, makes me so beyond happy 👦🏻👧🏻👶🏻 .. and I was wrong, he wasn't meant to be a father, I know even without kids of his own he would be absolutely amazing regardless- dedicating his time at work to educating youth as he does everyday he is a positive figure in so many lives (a good example that even if what you expect in life does not happen exactly as planned - you can still achieve your ultimate goals in several ways - in this case, Matt is using his fathering skills to help his students as well <— #perfectimperfectlife 💛💛) ... but that said ... I am biased in saying - HE IS also THE BEST DAD TO T & LEE ♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️ ... so grateful. We are all very lucky to have him in our lives. Happy Fathers Day Matt!! We love you to the moon and back!! (now hopefully, I don't screw it up and I actually let you sleep in 🛏 💤... 🤣🤣🤣🤪hahahahahaaa) ... Happy Father’s Day to all!! (Oh and happy happy Father’s Day to my dad and Ray! 🥰)

B I T T E R S W E E T 🍋 🍭 Dealing with a savage dichotomy of emotions swirling through my soul right now... I'm simultaneously feeling extremly proud and disappointed with myself about today's @tough_mudder elite.
As always, start with the bad. I arrived late and started the race 10 minutes behind my heat's 7:45 start. "How does this happen?" any sound minded human would ask. I didn't. Set. My. Alarm. 🤦🏻♂️🤦🏻♂️🤦🏻♂️ How did I even do that... the most rookie move a person could ever make. I had my running gear set out, my shoes unlaced and ready, my toiletry bag at the bedroom door, and my packsack packed and ready to go. I meticulously planned and executed every detail downt to a tee... EXCEPT FOR THE MOST CRITICAL ONE! 🤦🏻♂️
But there is a silver lining! Even though I started the race 10 minutes behind the pack and finished 32nd overall, my actual on-course time of 1:04:55 would have landed me in 10th place. WOULD HAVE CRACKED THE TOP 10!!! I am super proud of my performance out there, and running from behind and having to catch up was a tremendous motivator. My best run to date overall for sure!
My goal for this event was to finish in the top 15, so I'm putting a W and an L on the board today. Knowing that if things would have played out differently, I would have had the potential to make a run at the podium has me so fired up for 2020. So much so, that as soon as it is humanly possible to do so, I am buying my registration for next year, and putting the podium in my sights!
A very special thank you to @lesleycacciotti (as always) for always having my back and golding down the fort when Im training (all the time 🤣). I legit couldn't do what I without your support, baby. I love you xo. ❤
So much love for @apexwarriororfitness for the amazing training and workout classes that have forged me into an OCR-running machine! My performance today was on a different level than the same race exactly one year ago, and you guys are the difference maker! 🙏🏻💪🏻
Shouts to Kim and the @activetherapyplus team for the turbo recovery session this week. Wouldn't have been able to throw down as hard as I did without it. 🙏🏻👊🏻
KEEP PUSHING IT! 💪🏻
I love being home to put my boys to sleep. No greater feeling than being with my squad. #fatherof2#husband#lovemyfam father your kids don’t just be a dad.

A day of healing. ➕ Life is about balance, ⚖ and whatever goes out must come back in. With my half marathon this past Sunday (21k, 1:41:19), and @tough_mudder elite (17k, 20 obstacles) coming up on Saturday, there wasn't enough time for my body to fully recover and be able to perform to its maximum potential.
Aaaaaannnd this is where Kim (@activetherapyplus) comes in hahaha.
1️⃣ First, I was hooked up to an IFC (interferential current), ⚡ which pumped the muscles to remove waste, like lactic acid.
2️⃣ Next, Kim manually manipulated my quads to "strip" the muscles and get me ready for the cold tub. 👋
3️⃣ We finished off in the cold tub (something that I had been looking forward to and dreading at the same time hahaha), which causes vasoconstriction, shivering, etc. to promote more oxygenated blood to the sites (in my case, my legs and back). ❄ Cold blood passes through the body faster, so by virtue of sheer volume, more oxygen is being dispersed through your body when it's cold.
Thank you so much for the recovery session, Kimmy. ❤ It is sure to make a HUGE impact on my race on Saturday. TOP 15 HERE I COME!!! 💪🏻🏃🏻♂️💨
Como estava com saudade de vc hoje pequeno... É muito difícil sair todas as manhãs com vc me pedindo pra ficar contigo e não ir trabalhar... Papai ama vc!
How I missed you today buddy... It's pretty hard to leave every morning with you asking me to stay and not go to work... Daddy loves you!
