cried while crossing the finish line to the point that i couldn’t breathe. this was the first race to complete the 5k portion without stopping and the first race ever to finish without stopping. i could’ve done better, that’s not the point. i focused on putting one foot in front of the other, focused on my breathing, focused on mind over matter. couldn’t believe i even had a kick at the end. here’s to the next 6 months of training for chicago’s half marathon. 🏃‍♀️👟💪🏻🍀

From yesterday. Just posting for accountability. Did interval sprints. Walk for 90 seconds, let loose for 30, and repeat as many times as needed to reach 2 miles! 💪🏾 #fitness #training #running #marathontraining #chicagomarathon #nikerunclub #intervaltraining #sprint #hiit

Lucky 7! Or at least multiples... Swim and a run today. The swim of 2,100 yards was pretty rough after not being in the pool for laps in about a week and a half. But the run of 7 miles was great! I was pleasantly surprised when I came outside after the swim to warmer temps and sunshine 🌞😎 Hope Sunday is treating you all well! #sundayswimday #sundayrunday

26.2 miles done! I’m a marathoner! Did it go the way I expected? No. Not even close. Am I happy and satisfied? Yes. Knee pain kicked in mile 13 then went on and off until around mile mile 19 where it completely stopped me. Finished the next four miles by walking and jogging and shuffling. My mom came to ride her bike next to me to help me finish strong and she unfortunately had an accident and hit her head. At this point I of course stopped and stayed with her until the ambulance came. Shuffled through the last mile. Got my medal. Sobbed on my walk to the car (pride, stress, nerves, all of it.) She is perfectly okay. Just a concussion thankfully. I don’t know my chip time and I stopped my watch for a bathroom break and for my moms accident. watch time was around 4:20. I’m sure my chip time was much much slower. May not have ran the 26.2 the way I hoped but I also realize I squeezed 4 months of training into 2.5 months. Incredibly proud that I finished this as strong as I could despite facing so many obstacles along the way. Thankful for the bystanders who helped my mom and I.

#Repost @marquettemanuel • • • • • Great run along the beach started out with several dolphin really close to the shore. Warmed up quick from 40 to 60 degrees by the end of the run. I also got a “run forest run” from a local. #myrtlebeach #beach#dolphins #running #chicagomarathon #chitownhalf #longrun #jellyfish#runforestrun
