BOSTON was the HARDEST, yet most REWARDING marathon I’ve ever run!!! All the hard work and training that went into running the Boston Marathon was all worth it, even though my goals quickly went out the window by mile 9.
Of course, I read all the blogs before getting to the start line, so I thought I knew what to expect. Boy was I wrong. I had three goals going into Boston: A- BQ at Boston, B- sub 4 hour and C- enjoy the experience and finish with a smile. Needless to say, I accomplished my C goal which I am very proud of.
Marathons are just HARD, period!! And I am envious of those who can run at a fast pace so effortlessly the entire race. Sometimes everything goes as planned and others it takes everything you’ve got to fight to the finish. Today was a fight both mentally and physically. But I never gave up and crossed the finishline of the Boston freaking Marathon!!! 🙏🦄💙🙏💛 While I didn’t reach my goals for this race, I still feel like I gave it my all and finished strong...Boston Strong 💪💙💛 It was amazing, yet so hard!!! Loved the experience even though it was my slowest marathon. The crowds were spectacular and really helped my spirits in my low times. So happy and proud to check it off my list 🦄✅
