Throwback Thursday-Running Lens

It’s Thursday…time to throw things back! To last September, at least.

I take my phone with me when I run. Mainly because I run by myself majority of the time, so it’s a precaution in case anything were to happen. I don’t always love carting it around. However, it has come in handy when I’ve come across some beautiful sunsets and sunrises, amazing views, unique experiences and other things I could only really see when I’m out running.

*If you follow my Instagram, some of these will be a repeat of what you’ve seen…sorry 🙂 Here’s some of my favorite photos I’ve captured while running in Utah, California and Washington (September 2012-September 2013):

Good thing 2013 isn’t over yet! I’ve got a lot more runs, races and adventures to add to my folder and I can’t wait to see where my running shoes take me.

      • Welcome, that had to be an amazing run. Looking over your blog I can tell you love running and seem to know a lot about it. I am trying to get back into running. I have some questions for you if you don’t mind me asking them?

      • Awesome! Thanks!

        First let me give you a little bit of my back story, and then my question/s will follow

        My senior year of college (2007) I started running and I loved it. In late 2008 I stared to train for a 5K I ran in early 2009. After the 5K I took about a month off, and then started running again. However, I did too much mileage too soon. I ended up pulling my ITBS band in both legs (mostly in my right leg), and I haven’t been able to do any sort of distance running since. It seems like my legs have never gotten completely right.
        I have started a 5 week workout routine to get my body back in shape, and one of my long term goals is to try to start running again. I do miss it and it did help me lose and keep weight off.

        I would appreciate any tips or advice for how I should try to get back into running.

        You can look over my blog and that may help give you an idea of the exercises I have been doing.

        Thanks again!!

      • Okay, I thought this over and feel like maybe I threw the kitchen sink at you. Let me ask you this one simple question.

        I have had ITBS/hip issues for a few years now, and was wondering if you thought a chiropractor or an orthopedic might be able to help with my issue/s?

      • Hmmm good questions. I promise that I wasn’t ignoring your others! What have you done to help the issue in the past? Physical therapy? Chiropractic work?

      • No worries. 🙂

        I have stopped running, and use a foam roller (but probably not as often as I should). This summer I had pain/stiffness/numbness in my leg, but most of my issues were in the hip, gluteus maximus, and even my lower back. I was having issues sleeping, so I got a couple of Deep Tissue Massages. They helped but I think as long as I have had this issue that something else will be the only way to fully address my problem.

      • Ok – I’m FINALLY back from town and just got to reading this. Have you been doing the stretches he gave you? Notice anything different?

      • Yes, I have been doing the stretches, sitting on the tennis ball, I have bought new shoes to work out and run in, I got some solid insoles, a heel lift for my left foot (my left leg is a little shorter than my right leg), and anything else the Chiropractor suggested or recommended. I started to feel a difference Sunday, and woke up and felt as good as I have in a couple of weeks. There is a little soreness and stiffness in my upper back on the left side, but once I get moving it goes away for the most part. The Chiropractor said more than likely what I feel is my back getting used to being in the correct alignment, which is normal.

        Thanks for taking the time to read over this and get back with me. I hope you had a good trip.

        Have a great day!!
        Jared
