  • This came in the 📬 yesterday #boston2018 wind 💨 rain 🌧 cold 🌬 yet somehow I ran a 19 minute PR. Finally, in my 4th attempt at the marathon (3rd @bostonmarathon) I ran the race I knew I had in me since standing on that same starting line for #boston2016. Olympic trials qualifying time I’m coming for you (sub 2:45) 🏃🏽‍♀️💪🏻💙🦄💛 If I can run 2:58 in those conditions, just you wait and see what I can do on a perfect day - because guess what? Now, I actually believe - I can do it! 💯 “She believed she could, so she did!” ✨- A #bostonmarathon #bostonstrong #believeinyourself

  • We were blessed with another unseasonably cool morning! I had fun with my run/walk this by using blocks of 8 minutes: — 5 mins at 9:40, 3 mins walk 6 mins at 9:10, 2 mins walk 7 mins at 9:06, 1 min walk 8 mins at 8:57 — This felt good and I’m so relieved that I’m healthy! 😀 I’ve now been run/walking for a full week and I haven’t had any setbacks in my energy, so I’m optimistic about the future. In other news, @gregclor and I just bought tickets to see Wicked on Broadway in October! I’ve been wanting to see it for years and never have.

  • My 2018 Boston Marathon finisher's certificate finally came in the mail💙💛 This was Marathon #27, Boston #3 and by far one of the hardest marathons I have ever done because of the weather. And ironically, it was one of the strongest marathons I have ran. I can't wait to go back next year! #bostonmarathon2018 #bostonmarathon #strong #crazyweather #finisher

  • Hard days are the best because THAT’S when champions train👊🏻Struggle was real today. Summer running really blows sometimes. 88 degrees (real feel 99)☀️Going on 4 hours of sleep, a little cranky, not feeling 100% health wise, day after going hard on legs, heat, humidity, blazing sun, dehydration, soaking wet (and alllll the excuses I can think of) and yet you just keep going. One foot in front of the other - get it done. Don’t stop. It’s a good thing I had easy miles on the schedule today because it’s truly all I had to give. 4 this morning before the girls woke up at a 9:26 pace and then 5 more mid-morning with my man at an 8:42 pace. That phrase turtle stampeding thru peanut butter? Yeah - that was me today but still put those miles in the bank! Chicago, I’m coming for you!

  • Boston Marathon finisher’s certificate arrived yesterday! I placed: — 1476 out of 11,628 women 1258 out of 5790 in the 18-39 division (and I’m 39 years old so I feel pretty good about that!) — I was particularly inspired to see in the finisher’s book that a 60-year old woman ran faster than me. So hopefully I have plenty of years ahead of me to get faster. 😀 — 3.17 miles of run-walking for me this morning, alternating 6 minutes running with 2 minutes walking. #Boston2018

  • In addition to those metallic award winner stickers, picture books should also come with a Cry Warning. What is it with picture books now? One in three has me crying by the last page - when I am reading them aloud to at LEAST one kid! (@dsantat I'm looking at you.) I don't remember picture books being this good when I was a kid. This book is especially beautiful because it shares so much about inclusivity and how we can adapt to what comes our way.

  • Love @kellykkroberts mission and message!! 🏃🏼‍♀️ 💪🏻 #Repost @kellykkroberts with @get_repost ・・・ I'm a terrible athlete. And a horrible runner. I feel like I work twice as hard to be half as good as the badasses I run with / try to keep up with. But that's my favorite part about being a runner. When that voice in the back of my head tells me I'm not good enough and all signs point to failure, I finally have the courage to throw “can” and “can’t” out the window chase my impossible anyway. There's no such thing as the right time to get started. Just now. There's no such thing as failure if you show up for yourself and give your best effort. In 2016, I told myself that I'd never be able to qualify for the #BostonMarathon. I’d just ran my first sub 4 hour marathon and thought that was the strongest I’d ever run. I told myself that women who look like me can’t run 3 hour 35 minute marathons... Today, my PR sits at 3:42. Six minutes away from my BQ. So repeat after me, THIS is what STRENGTH looks like. And regardless of what happens on 11/4 when I cross the finish line of the #NYCMarathon, Boston Marathon qualifying time or not, I'm going to be the strongest version of me. AND THAT is what its all about. BQ Or Bust. That's my moonshot. That’s my impossible. What's yours? #JustDoIt @NikeNYC @nike #SportsBraSquad #TeamNike

  • •RUN•DANCE•LOVE• Friday’s run crew made getting out of bed at 6:30 totally worth it. Nothing better than covering some miles with people that make your heart happy. Each one of us is a mom of boys. Between the 4 of us, we have brought 10 amazing little (and some not so little) dudes to this planet! Easy, conversational run- 6.2 miles/8:37 overall pace. Bonus that my friend @nelsawy, who I haven’t seen since we conquered Boston a few months ago, is in town for a few weeks. ❤️ Have a good weekend doing whatever it is you LOVE to do!! #run #runningfriends #friday #funrun #marathonmom #momofboys #motherrunner #southbay #bostonmarathon

  • 8 miles easy....although this wasn’t where I ran today, it certainly felt like this in Arizona today. Got a little late start on my run and put in 8 miles holding two water bottles that were bone dry by the end of the run. Heat is no joke out here during the summer! Got to get up and do the rest of my runs in the dark here.

  • Three months ago! What a day. I can now look back and say I’m satisfied with how I did. Sure there were small mistakes that would have saved me a minute or two, but I ran this race with a lot of joy and amusement. When the rain was coming down in sheets and I was pushing against the wind, I had to laugh at it all. I pay and travel to do this! I can’t wait to start training for my next and accomplish the time I was originally going for at Boston. #houstonmarathon2019

  • Still love me some snail mail!!! Especially on a Friday when it comes like this. 💙💛 The build up to the 2018 Boston Marathon was just as crazy as the ones before, but when that morning came this year hearing gushing winds and rain at my bedroom windows, I knew we all were in for something insane. We all may not have finished. We all may not have crushed the goals we set months in advance. But we all had the heart to toe that line. It takes A LOT and that pride will stay with us forever. It seemed pretty awful and surreal in the moment, but standing dry in the sun, holding this high today just goes to show that you can do pretty hard stuff. Strength and growth come through continuous effort and struggle. Put your mind to it... the rest is easy. ☝

  • I’ll Have Another Podcast Episode 131: Shadrack Biwott. Shadrack placed 3rd at the @bostonmarathon this year and is a name to be watching in the coming seasons as the Olympic Trials approach! I’m so glad he was suggested to me to come on the show by guests @timritchiewtd and @ktr010 who were on Episode 123. We've talked a lot about the women’s race in Boston this year, but the men’s race hasn’t been talked about nearly as much; least by me it hasn’t and I was so excited to hear about Shadrack's experience. Though he finished 3rd in this years Boston Marathon- he wasn’t the dark horse you might think he was- as he placed 4th in Boston in 2017 and 5th at the @nycmarathon in 2016. He is sponsored by @brooksrunning Running and runs for the @brooks_hansonodp. He has a marathon PR of 2:12:01 and a have marathon PR of 61:24. Shadrack is from Kenya and has lived in the States since High School- he is married to his college sweatheart Kathy, they have two kids and live in California where he trains mostly solo, while enjoying getting to know the running community in his town. He has a positive and encouraging outlook on life that I know will inspire you. You can find this episode in any podcast app or spotify - link to listen directly in my profile!

  • Today was one of those few days I actually feel like a runner. They’re few and far between but just one of those moments where you feel like you belong and you’re doing it right. Math on the other hand, I was not doing that right this morning as I ended up adding a km to my run because I misjudged how much further to go 🤷🏻‍♂️ — Cruising into the weekend and can’t wait to cheer a bunch of friends on at races. Anyone else got a race this weekend? — It’s Friday friends 🙌🙌
