Boston With Love

I have been writing and re-writing posts in my head ever since the awful tragedies on Monday but have been completely struggling with what to say.  Part of me didn’t want to write anything since so much has already been said way better than I could ever say it, but the other part of me […]

I Answered, Part 1

Last week I asked to see if anyone had any questions for me and I got some great ones!  In order to keep this post at a reasonable length, I broke the questions up over a couple posts.  This will be part 1! Xaarlin asked: I am wondering what your goals are for the marathon. […]

One Month Later

I was looking at the calendar today and was shocked to see that today was already the 18th!  Wasn’t it just May 1st, how can it be May 18th already?  The first thing that popped into my head was that it was one month until Chris and my wedding anniversary!  SIX whole years coming up […]

Race Report: 2011 Boston Marathon

I am having a hard time finding the right words to fully express this day, I just want to do it justice!  I really tried to go into this race without a ton of expectations, but with a race like Boston that is pretty much impossible.  It gets so built up from everyone who has […]

My First Boston: Marathon Eve

Going back a couple days… I woke up pretty early on Sunday morning since Chris had signed up to run the 5k, but it wasn’t hard since I was full of nerves the second I opened my eyes.  This was the first time during the whole weekend I actually felt nervous.  I think being able […]

My First Boston: I did it!

I can’t stop smiling. What an amazing day.  From walking to the buses, to sitting in Athlete’s Village, to waiting in my corral, to running the race… it was all just amazing and I am so happy with how it went. I knew early on a PR wasn’t in the books – it was hot […]

My First Boston: Thankful

As I sit in athlete’s village getting ready to start my very first Boston Marathon I want you all to know how much you mean to me and how much I will be thinking about you while I am out running today.  I honestly don’t know where my running would be without my incredible support […]
