Runner’s World article by Kiera Carter mentioning Alesha Anchundia of Curvy Runner Girl on April 3, 2019


Three real runners share their experience with weight pre- and post-training for long distance races like marathons, and half-marathons.

Kiera PR'd at the Los Angles Marathon unexpectedly

Lindsey noticed some surprising changes while training for the NY Marathon

Alesha gained a new sense of self from 5Ks to Half-Marathons

How to manage the changes:

  • Beware of before-and-after weight loss photos.

  • Focus on non-weight goals.

  • Don't burn yourself out.

  • Understand the process.

  • Combat the post-marathon blues.

Runstreak Day 95

Runstreak Day 95:

Distance: 1 mile

Time: 13:27


25s Forearm Plank,

25s Extended Arm Plank,

25s Forearm with 10 Side Steps

15s Side, Middle, and Back Stretches

10 Modified Push Ups

Ok, so it was a blitz to the gym at the very last minute tonight (one of those, close early nights) but I got in and managed to do a real quick run. I limit my faster running for races since I'm currently on a streak. I really enjoy the strengthening aspect of it which has gradually made me faster so tonight's mile was not something I'd do everyday but I guess when and if I need to its nice to know I can.
After the #run, I did my #planks, some #stretches and a few push ups. Then went to the movies.
Thanks for all of the plankers out there, you ladies and gents are so a wonderful job!! Keep up the great work!!!

Runstreak Day 90

What can I say... Its been 90 days of #running and I like this freaking streaking adventure! I really do.

🌟 I was only going to do my minimum of a #mile today but I made it to the gym too late so I only did so some push ups and a few plank variations.

🌟I did make it to the #silvercomettrail near my house and it was a great idea. The fresh air and all of natural gave me a little extra pizzazz.

🌟So much so I ran a #5K (3.2 miles). I've been running on the treadmill alot lately and although its convenient its not as enjoyable.

🌟A bonus I unexpectedly ran faster today than the 5K I did on March 1. I only realized this as I was compiling my March pics for my slideshow. What a journey this has been. Woo Hoo!!!
