So it was really difficult to pick just one photo (and I can't promise that I won't post another soonish...) but here is how I decided to kick off my very first trip to the islands of Hawaii! Morning sunrise runs have never really been my thing, but I think I might make an exception while on this little vaccay 😎🌞❤️
I got up early and got a quick run in & it felt so good on a nice cool morning! I’ve missed the #runnershigh and I’m so stoked this new program allows for other activities! .
Today starts the first part of my journey to Indy and I’m beyond excited! Who knew, little ol me, from small town Colorado would be on a special trip because of my coaching job. This is it. I’m living this dream - a job that’s rewarding, meaningful and fulfilling 💕 .
I’m so in love with coaching - the women who are a part of my groups, this company & it’s values but most of all my team! .
Now, to deal with this fear flying ✈️ Are we there, yet?! .

Injured!!! or hitting rock bottom - Part 3/4
(...) day three after the painful incident, I finally took the courage to google my injury symptoms. I knew self diagnosis is difficult (or stupid) but lacking accessible doctors on my road trip it was the only option. I have studied multiple websites and even done an online test with 27 multiple choice questions all leading to the same diagnosis of a partially ruptured achilles tendon.. Recovery time at the very best 4-6 weeks.
This killed my marathon goal as the minimum of 4 weeks of recovery takes 8 weeks to get back to the same level and I only have 12 in total. So my dream of running a 2h 25min marathon was shattered! Writing my master thesis and training hard next to it was my plan for the upcoming three months, before worklife will tighten my training schedule thereafter.
I have scheduled immediately a meeting with my doctors back in Switzerland and had to call my insurance to validate coverage. As you get to speak to a real doctor on the phone during this process, I got an additional personalised diagnosis:
Partially ruptures achilles tendon. However, he added I should IMMEDIATELY go to a hospital and have that checked if I EVER want to run a marathon again! That I might need a SURGERY and I have alread lost too much time.
Being in Iceland on a Saturday, this meant driving 3h to the next village. I did that totally scared and dead inside without stopping at any of the sights expecting the very worst. Arriving there, I had to wait an additonal 3 hours till the emergency doctor arrived (...)
Spoiler alert: Luckily, my rollercoaster of feelings got another extreme twist!
A good tactic to have. Tell whoever is listening that you’re going to do something and you’re more likely to do it.
Work tomo so I’m setting the alarm for 5.30, heading out by 6 to do Willen & Tongwell lake run (just once thankfully!) and back home for a shower.
Even mapped my route.

Guess what was my facial expression 😬 The water is only about 10°C/50°F, so it was crispy n’ cold but sooo good for my sore legs after 10K race on Tuesday! Swimsuit season is here!🐧👙By @seen_running
by @karolinsmoment. The desire for personal and individual independence; in a world that is networked down to the last detail. I wanted to change so much, do better, reshape and live with any intentions far in the future without realizing that my inner center was looking for balance. Was this possibly postponed?
Negative thoughts can often take away any view of the real thing, namely one's own needs, one's own kind, one's own feelings.
