“Stop to rest but don’t you DARE give up!” “Focus on THIS step, not the miles left to go” “You’ve lived through worse! You’ve thrived in tougher conditions!” And when the voice in the back of my mind tantalized me with an excuse, “You’ve already run so far. No one will know that you didn’t hit your goal.” I screamed back “I’LL KNOW!” Last week we ran 13 miles— today completing 9 took EVERYTHING. It was in the 90’s without one speck of cloud-cover and it was one of those runs where you just don’t have it. You know those workouts where every step requires ALL of your will? When you’re only 1/3 done and already struggling? I coached myself through every single moment— and it was still awful. Some days you show up and feel like a beast, other days you wonder how in earth this ever felt possible— the important thing is YOU SHOW UP. The commitments we make to ourselves are the most sacred in our lives and yet most people will bail on themselves while always keeping their word to everyone else. YOU have to be your greatest champion. YOU have to be your own coach. YOU have to show up when you said you would. The person you dream of becoming is on the other side of the promises you keep breaking to yourself. #RachelHRuns #runningmotivation

Your kids don't need you to be perfect, they need you to SHOW UP for your life. Because here's the thing y'all... when you show up for your life, you show up for THEM! It's time we all carry on despite the opposition! ✨

Stop comparing your beginning with my middle! Or anyone else’s for that matter. Girl,Stop Apologizing is my eighth book, and I’m not saying it’s Pulitzer material, but it’s light years away from my first in terms of skill. Have you ever looked at my Instagram feed and thought it was pretty? Scroll back a couple of years —just for funsies— and see what it looked like when I was just figuring out my personal style or how to not look like a robot in photos. You guys... I did not wake up like this. And that person you’re comparing yourself to, neither did they. You stop yourself from trying because you think it’s already been done. Well, of course it has. But it hasn’t been done by you. #GirlStopApologizing ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🖌: Thank you so much for making this, @holleianne ! You all continue to impress me with your beautiful art!

Here's what my stomach REALLY looks like! I've worked so hard on my health and my body over the last decade but dude, I've got all kinds of saggy skin and stretchmarks going on and I'm not ashamed of it. If I'm standing upright you can see how hard I've been working. When I lean over or go down into a pushup it's like Laffy Taffy spilling out of a bag. This is reality. I've carried three babies in this body, my skin has been stretched and pulled-- this is my real body in my real life. Progress is beautiful, even when it's not pretty. #MadeForMore

If y'all have been hanging out with me long enough you KNOW that this is my favorite way to start anything. And for those of you who are wondering why in the world I do this EVERYWHERE I speak, it is because I truly believe that you if you can't push yourself to get uncomfortable in front of a room of others, you will not push yourself to get uncomfortable in your own life. And, if you guys haven’t read The Five Second Rule by @melrobbins — you’re missing out!

To all my mamas out there... hear me when I say, be GRACEFUL to yourselves! Missing the snack or the playdate is OK! The #1 thing that you can do is to BE PRESENT WHERE YOUR FEET ARE. You may be in a season of your life where everything seems to be chaotic - but know that it too, will pass. Focus on the quality of time you spend with your loved ones rather than being hard on yourself for the quantity of time that you're around. Do the best you can, with where you're at, right now. ❤️ Thanks so much for asking this question, @laurengores ! ✨

So today on the podcast I interviewed @marieforleo and the conversation was awesome and fun and insightful and maybe even slightly controversial at times. I want you to listen in (particularly if you’re a woman in business ) and I wish I had a gorgeous shot of me and my new best friend Marie— only, we’ve never actually met in real life. So I drew us. And I think we can all agree, the likeness is uncanny. Go listen in anywhere you get your podcasts. Go buy a copy of Marie’s new book “Everything is Figureoutable” anywhere you get your books. Come listen to both me + Marie at our RISE business conf this fall!

First of all... can we can just take a moment to acknowledge how fabulous @shopsassyjones always looks?! On a serious note, I’m so glad you asked this question Charis, because I know that you aren’t the only one that struggles with this! I truly believe that there is SO much power in reminding yourself of the moments where you PRAYED for the things that you currently have. Also, making sure that you focus your time on the things that will move the needle for you. Instead of making a “to-do” list, create a RESULTS list! This way you can limit how many things you are focusing on in a day and you can do it with JOY! 🙌🏻

Everything —literally every good and beautiful thing in my life— came on the OTHER side of something hard. My children on the other side of labor and adoption. My career as an author on the other side of years of rejection. My thriving company on the other side of a decade of failure. My strength as a runner on the other side of hundreds and hundreds of hard-earned miles. The beauty in marriage on the back of thousands of hard conversations and effort to be stronger for each other and our family. I wanted a tattoo to remind me to get comfortable being uncomfortable. I wanted a tattoo to remind me to embrace the work because the harvest will be worth it. I wanted a tattoo to remind me always that even when it’s hard, joy comes in the morning. This tattoo won’t make sense to most other people but that’s ok, it’s not for other people, it’s for me. Embrace the suck. . Super, eternally grateful to @birth mark for understanding my vision and making it happen all small and dainty-like.

THIS picture. This picture might not look like a lot to you but this picture is EVERYTHING. This is the shot of when @mrdavehollis and I came around the corner to cross the finish line on our 13th ascent up the mountain to complete 30 miles of climbing-- it took us 35 hours. We both stopped just before the finish line so we could take those final steps holding hands. Start together. Fight together. Finish strong.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Today on the podcast we're sharing the whole journey of taking on @29029everesting and why it's so important to attempt a physical challenge as a couple.

The way you THINK is the way you FEEL. Period. The thoughts that fill up your mind are what drive every single one of your emotions. Are you anxious? Your thoughts are anxious. Are you mad? Your thoughts are making you mad. If you control your thoughts (which is a skill you can absolutely teach yourself ) then you control your focus and therefore your mood. . What would it look like for you to approach your life with the presence and the joy of a 2-Year old looking for rolly pollies in the backyard? Think about it... 1. She's wholly present, she's not thinking about a perceived mistake from yesterday or worried about what tomorrow will bring. She's right here in the now. 2. She's curious, she hasn't decided that she knows what what will happen next so she's excited to search for the unexpected. 3. She finds joy in simple pleasures: she's happy to be outside, to wear her pink rain boots, to hold a worm for the first time. Present, curious, grateful for simple things... there are so many outlooks to bring into your day but I think we could all learn something from Noah girl.

Ken and I are talking about how PROXIMITY (as in, who you surround yourself with ) is POWER, what to do if you're feeling burnout and the importance of putting yourself in the right position for success.

Celebrating 11 years with our Sawyer today over homemade tacos and ice cream cones. We did a “friend party” on Saturday at a giant jumping park where I threw my hip out trying to impress some 5th graders on one of the 9,000 trampolines. But today is his actual birthday and my favorite way to celebrate is simple: Your favorite homemade dinner, your favorite dessert and a chance for every member of the family to tell you their favorite thing about you. Birthday dinner is the best dinner.

We have a rule in our relationship— whoever has the better attitude is the leader... and we follow the leader! Whoever is feeling more positive? Leader. Whoever is feeling stronger? Leader. Whoever has stronger faith, bigger dreams, more energy? Leader. The thing is, the leader might flip back and forth several times in a single day or someone might lead out for an entire season while their partner is struggling. Shout out to today’s leader— 5 miles felt like a massive stretch for me after last weekend’s climb but @mrdavehollis pushed us past 8 miles in 85 degrees. . You might think all of the endurance stuff we do is weird but the truth is, when you push yourself physically it makes you stronger mentally in every way. The next time you don’t want to: write the book, do the laundry, play Candyland again for the 59th time, keep your temper, pay down that debt... you remember mile 7 when you were running straight up hill and you thought you were gonna die. That reminder —that you are strong beyond measure— makes you feel like you can do ANYTHING. So thank you to my partner in crime for leading us past a threshold today. #rachelhruns #RiseTogether

Dear Critic, ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This sh*t is hard. It was hard for her to produce that poem. It was a lonely slog when he wrote his book. That makeup tutorial you're trashing? It took her a full week to edit it and twice as long to find the courage to post. The picture you're making fun of, the outfit you hate, the body type you're disparaging? It took them SO much freaking courage to push it out into the world KNOWING that someone would likely use it as target practice. But guess what? We showed up. We made the thing and even if it's awful and awkward and weird, we lit the candle-- please don't do your best to snuff it out. Instead, why don't YOU create? Why don't YOU build, draft, draw, paint, pose, selfie? Why don't you write a post about avocado toast or pumpkin spice lattes or K-Pop? Why don't you sweat through CrossFit or go to Burning Man or sign up for a 10K? Instead of making fun of --or casting judgment on-- everyone who DOES something-- what if you did something too? I promise you, it will be good for your soul. I promise you it will kill your desire to judge others because once you know how hard it is to build something out of nothing you'll never again destroy someone else's sandcastle. And yes, when you find the courage to put your creation out there, inevitably, a stranger on the internet will come along and callously tear it apart with their words. But by then you'll be one of us: a dreamer, a doer, a nerd, a creator, an inventor, a poet an artist. We are the former band nerds. We are the freaks and geeks and misfits and we hold space for anyone with the courage to dream. You are always welcome here but your hate is not. Less Criticism. More Creation. 💙 Tag your favorite creators below / share if it resonates. . Thank you @threearrowslettering for making this after hearing me talk about it on the morning show!

It’s possible to pursue something for yourself while simultaneously showing up well for the people you love. It’s possible to be a great mother AND a great entrepreneur. It’s possible to be an awesome wife AND still want to get together regularly with your girlfriends. It’s possible to be this AND that. It’s possible to decide that you’re going to be centered in who you are and what matters most to you AND let other people’s opinions fall away.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Don’t buy into the hype or the pressure or the guilt that you’ve got to be one or the other. Maybe that’s true for other people, maybe that’s their opinion, but only YOU get to decide what’s true for you. #GirlStopApologizing
