I wrote a post on what no one tells you before you run a marathon. I wanted to write one about how runners feel and what they experience after racing. Crossing the finish line is the moment you’ve been waiting for, with months of training and hoping you make it across that line. Finish lines are what we live for.
Happy Monday! I completed my 4th full marathon yesterday! MCM is my favorite race, so I was very happy just running it. Plus, it was one of best friends first marathon!!! What an amazing thing to witness running with her.
This weekend I will finish my 4th marathon! I am so happy and excited and nervous and anxious and all of the above! On one of my taper runs, I was thinking of how far I have come in the past 3 years with running. Last year I ran the MCM as my 2nd marathon. I had a lot to learn, and still do. Marine Corps Marathon is my favorite race! Here are my goals for this weekend’s marathon.
I’ve been promoting the crap out of my virtual 5k – I’m sorry! But, I am so excited to finally be able to make a difference in a big way, and with all my runner friends! This is a post that answers what a virtual race is and what my virtual 5k is all about:

Recently, I wrote a post on questions that runners love hearing. It had me thinking…what are some things runners say that make us feel proud? Maybe some of these, “normal” people would feel ashamed to say, but we say them with our chin up high. Here is my list of things I say (sorry, runners are weird..):
Good morning, everyone! I have a couple of quick updates I wanted to share!
I finally found a location and date best for me to get my coaching certification in running! YAY!!! This has been a goal of mine for awhile, and will help my dreams for the future. Can’t wait.
