  • Andy has been running with Complete Runner now a few times. I have wanted to join in but it’s the day after Chemo. If I am not sick, I am exhausted and I am bummed each time I have missed. Today, I was able to join them unsure of how my body would respond.
The first couple miles were very hard as I tried to run, breathe and control my heart rate. 
Antonio kept a very steady pace and this helped me. The group was very encouraging and fun and this too helped me. today I was able to run 5 miles with them without stopping! 
The biggest blessing came when I saw this post from Antonio. I was hugged by his words. 😊

  • “It’s only 5 miles” I told myself at mile 2 when I already couldn’t breathe. 
I tried so hard to stay with the pack but I slowly fell behind. 
Andy comments “I dont know what your trying to prove..”
I thought about this. 
But I stayed quiet, mostly because I couldn’t speak. 
So I thought about it.
Was I being competitive trying to stay with the faster group?
Was I trying to prove I COULD stay with them?
.
.
I reviewed my thoughts. 
I just wanted it so bad for ME. As PROOF my body was recovering from all those weeks of chemo. 
I wanted so badly to SEE,as proof,  my body would let me push it! 
It hurt, but felt good! 
I couldn’t keep up with the faster runners, but I outran my last weeks pace! 
And today... I’m so sore! #itsjustanothermarathon #runningwithcancer #completerunnerflint #ultrarunning #cancersucks #neverquit #breastcancer

  • Today my heart almost broke. I got up just like I normally do and went downstairs to jump on my treadmill to run my 3 miles to start my day off right. I have been in this routine since October 1st and have only missed 2 days (due to food poisoning). While to some this is not a big deal however this is huge as I am working on getting back in my running groove. I put on my favorite running shoes (my Diadora’s) that I got from my favorite running store @completerunnerflint and jumped on my treadmill ready to go.... or not go as I found out. Something was wrong and it would not connect. I spent 30 mins messing with things and still nothing. My heart was broken. I was thinking about it most of the day and what I could do or who I could call to fix this because I have created a habit and the thought of not running every day actually made my heart heavy. When I got home I was on a mission to make it work. I talked to an awesome associate at ifit and she helped me get my treadmill going. I may or may not have professed my love to her as I said thank you. I have started back up my love affair with my running shoes and I could not be happier. Here’s to all the miles we will run together. #runningmotivation #running #runningshoes #diadorarunning #completerunnerflint #runhappy #garmin #findyourhappy #diadorashoes

  • Heartbroken not to be with my team at one of my favorite races of the year (due to being sick) but my team showed up and made me proud! The Veteran’s Honor run is flat and fast and ends with a yummy mostaccoli lunch after. Congratulations to those in my group that placed and a HUGE shout out to Todd who took 1st in his age group in the 11K and another shout out to Darold who ran his very 1st 11K and placed 4th. I am constantly impressed with the incredible people on the Wellness Team. You guys make me so proud and I hope that you all know that it is each of you that make this Wellness the best in the world!! #elgawellnessteam #elgaismycu #runnersofinstagram #running #run #walk #walking #veterans #wellness #teamwellness #team #workfamily #completerunnerflint

  • 3 years ago today I made the best decision to quit my job, move to Grand Blanc and buy @completerunnerflint. That decision has lead me to the loves of my life, @hollymarie.1219 and @madi.grace.runner, gain life long friends that are almost family, be a part of the best community with so many amazing people that inspire me everyday, ability to give back to so many meaningful organizations, and get a puppy 😁 Thank you from the bottom of my heart to everyone who’s helped make my dream come true. The Complete Runner colors are stronger than ever and I can’t wait to see what the future holds. #dreamscometrue #completerunnerflint

  • Time change for next Saturday November 2nd and the December 7th run/walk at @flintcrepecompany .  We will be starting both of these events at 8am to ensure enough light or close to enough light for everyone to safely see where we are run/walking. This new time will also allow us to have more time to use the restrooms prior to our run! Join us next Saturday for a run with @on_running , they will be bringing out some really fantastic shoes for us to run in! As always all paces welcome and special thanks to Flint Crepe Company for being such an awesome partner in promoting a healthier community! #flintforward #flintcrepecompany #runflint #completerunnerflint #runwithfriends

  • “Squawk” is Carl’s favorite phrase but I think we can all agree it’s time for the flamingos to go away and the Turkeys to come out, if these glasses don’t have you saying “gobble, gobble” then you might not be ready for fall running!  Make sure to pick yours up at Complete Runner, available 10.18.19 #completerunnerflint #thanksgiving #fallrunning #dresstoimpress #gobblegobble

  • My favorite time of year and also one of our favorite races of the year. This is year 5 for ELGA’s Wellness Team attending the Scrumpy Skedaddle at Almar Orchards in Flushing, MI. We had almost 60 associates come out and enjoy a nice Sunday run/walk thru the orchard. We ended our race with hard (or reg for the kids) cider, pancakes (thrown at us by professional pancake flippers), sausage, and an amazing bluegrass band. Love this race and we will continue to make this an annual tradition for our Wellness Team. Want to join us for our next race? You will find us in Burton and the Veterans Honor Race next. Hope to see you there! #elgawellnessteam #elgaismycu #run #walk #runningfit #scrumpyskedaddle #almarorchards #flushing #wellness #completerunnerflint #pancakes #cider #fun #hardcider

  • Our friends at @tailwindnutrition shared some very helpful mixing instructions on how to get the very most out of their awesome product! We think it’s so helpful we’d like to share it with you! “Do you have a race coming up with limited carrying capacity? This is the perfect time to make a Tailwind concentrate!

You will still want to consume 200 calories per hour of exercise (100 per half hour), but you can adjust the amount of water you mix with your Endurance Fuel based on your carrying capacity. For instance, you might choose to mix all Tailwind into a 4oz flask that fits in a running belt! Just two easy steps:

1. Calculate the total time of your event to find your total Tailwind needs.
2. Mix your total Tailwind in a small bottle of choice with just enough water to make it viscous.

Pro tip: If you’re having problems mixing, use a measuring cup so the powder is thoroughly dissolved and pouring is easier.

  • Another Crim 10 Mile is in the books! It wasn’t my best race, but I enjoyed myself and still finished in the top 200 of a competitive field. Most importantly, the race benefits some very worthy causes through the @crimfitnessfoundation and is great for the city of Flint. I want to congratulate all 10,000 runners who competed this weekend and thank all of the organizers and volunteers that make this race possible, as well as the countless spectators that cheered us on (including my lovely fiancé)! #annarborrunningcompany #completerunnerflint #headsweats #keepacoolhead #goodr #aftershokz
