  • Recovery run! My legs are really sore today— much more so than after the half marathon. Typically my recovery runs end up being in the 8:40-8:50 range but today I knew I wouldn’t truly recover unless I ran as slow as I could possibly go. The more I think about why my legs are so torn up I honestly believe it was due to the treadmill. I ran hard on Wednesday and yet my legs felt great going into the Thursday treadmill run, but once I got off the machine, I regretted it and wished I had waited to run in the 35-degree rain later in the day. Now I have to dig myself out of the hole of leg fatigue, which hasn’t happened in the past 3-4 cycles, but I’m doing my best with the foam roller, epsom salt baths and the @theragun. I have a very hard workout on tap tomorrow followed by a massage. I’m not confident about making it through that workout, but my coach has advised me not to stress about it and I could be fine by then.

  • 2018 has been an amazing Marathon year! 🏃🏼‍♀️🎉💛💙🦄 3 marathons, 2 PRs, 2 Boston Qualifiers (for 2019 & 2020) 1 New York City Marathon, (qualified in June, ran in November) and one happy girl that has worked her tail off for these goals! I didn’t PR New York and had no time goal in mind but used it as a victory lap and loved every minute! If you couldn’t tell from the photos I posted, 😁 I had the best time and couldn’t stop smiling! The course was more challenging then Phx or STG so I’m happy with my performance and loved every moment of that race! It was such a celebration for me personally! I think it’s good to recognize our accomplishments from time to time and applaud our efforts and celebrate goals achieved, big or small. It’s ok to be proud of yourself and look how far you’ve come! My first marathon was a 4:35 and now I’m a 3:21 marathon runner. 🏃🏼‍♀️ I never thought I would run that fast ever or have 4 BQs under my belt now. 💛💙🦄 It took a lot of hard work, 9+ years of running and 18 marathons but I did it! but So never give up and keep going! My next goal and dream is a 3:15 marathon, and I can’t wait to run Boston in April! 🎉 #MarathonMotivation #Marathons #BostonMarathon #StGeorgeMarathon #NewYorkMarathon #PhxMarathon

  • No fancy podium pics or awards today. Had A, B, and C goals going in and settled for something around K it felt like. Disappointing to finish the way it did when it felt so good. Not the day I wanted nor had trained for but it was what it was and I got what I got. Half dozen reasons why I could have dropped but two little smiles waiting for me at home kept me in the game. Was clicking them off through 35 but the angry calf had other plans from there. Don’t think it knew there were 15 to go. Gave it what I had to get to the finish. Choosing not to dwell on the finish but rather focus on the good. Because, in the end, it was still a good day. Not every day you get to line up with and rub elbows with the biggest names in the sport. I got 50 miles in some gorgeous Maryland countryside that I wouldn’t have seen otherwise. And the smiles on the faces of the countless volunteers and course support were infectious and help make @jfk50mile what it is. Met some amazing folks. So all was not lost. No 🌧 no 🌈. Tomorrow’s a new day. Looking forward to eating all the food, getting some sleep, licking my wounds, and getting healthy. I’ve got a date with a little race in Boston in April. Luckily it’s only 26.2.

  • So... I registered for Boston 2019! Let me share my spring season with y’all. My goal race is Grandma’s Marathon in June (hit me up if you’re running this one!). If all goes well with my buildup and recovering from the shit show that is my life right now, I’ll be chasing a sub 3 there. If you’ve followed me for a long time or know me personally, you know Boston demolished and really broke me.... mmmk moving on. I want to make this experience better than that and really love this race without the pressure of time goals. I’m excited to be there to support my #teamsugarruns athletes (many of whom will be running it for the first time!), and meet all the people from this community that I didn’t allow myself to last time bc I was in serious race mode and needed to focus. I can’t say I’m running it for fun bc it will be part of training, but I’m going to really give it a chance to steal my heart. Here’s to an AMAZING Boston experience in 2019 💛💙 Who’s gonna be there?!? 🙋🏻‍♀️ 📷: @dualr • • • • • #bostonmarathon #marathontraining #runnerscommunity #marathoners #bq #bostonstrong #rungoals #runtoinspire #runnerslife #runboston #runspo #runners #runcoach #womenrunners #runmotivation #likeagirl

  • I finished!! And I managed to do it with a Boston Qualifying time. The @philly_marathon was a fun, well organized race & the city and spectators kept the runners energized the whole 26.2 miles. I have had such a fun weekend in Philly & I am super proud of my sister who finished her first marathon today. I PR’d & got a Boston Qualifying time, which I am very grateful for, but I did not reach the original goal I had set for myself to get below 3:20. My knee injury was a major set back & for awhile I was not even sure I would be able to finish the race. With everything considered, I am proud of what I accomplished today & that I listened to my body through training & did not push too hard. I am also glad that I feel pretty darn good right now & can enjoy the rest of day! Thank you for a great marathon Philly!

Obtaining Non-profit status! 🔑 2. All profits being donated to causes that help fight addictions ⚔️ 3. Transferring out of clothing sales and into personal training for runners 🏃‍♀️ 🏃 ••• •• • A big thank you to everyone who has been a part of the journey, to @tyleradamscreative for this video, to @_victoriajohns @bellabecaetano and #Andy for “running” this video shoot with me!

  • Taken just before I told my husband: "I'm thinking of dropping out." Clearly, the thought of my very first DNF made me happy. Come mile 16, not one part of me wanted to run another 10 miles. So I turned around & headed for my bag at the finish--ran 18 miles, not 26.2. What happened? The weather was perfect. I nailed a sub-2 half PR just 6 weeks ago. My training was good. I made it to race day healthy & uninjured. The problem? I was tired. Downright fatigued. My body & my mind were like, "Why are we doing this?" So I listened. And I feel really good about that. Happy, even. I've already proven to myself I'm a beast--thanks to my #BostonMarathon-in-a-Nor'easter finish, sub-2 half PR at 40, and, um, childbirth. I know I've got grit. I also know I've got maturity. It took me 12 years of racing to know when to say when, that *sometimes* it's better NOT to finish what you started. Time to rest. Thanks for a great day regardless, Philly.

  • THE FIVE RUNNERS YOU MEET ON YOUR LONG RUN 1 - The Really Really Really Really Old Runner. This person could be 50 or 102 years old. But he or she looks 102 years old. He/she makes you hope that you too will get to keep running for many many many many many more years. - 2 - The Guy Wearing Shorts. I would say guy or girl, but this one is ALWAYS a dude. There's snow and ice on the ground, it's -30, but buddy epitomizes "Endless Summer". He makes you smile and suddenly feel really self-consciously over-dressed. - 3 - The Running Group. These guys and gals are taking up the path with their rainbow reflective jackets but they're SO cheerful and courteous that you don't even GIVE a care. "Runner UP!!" They make you remember how great it is to run with friends - and how important it is to share the path. - 4 - The Stroller Runner. No matter how good you're feeling about your current run, this ma or pa comes into view and immediately wins everything. This runner reminds you that there's always more you could be doing and makes your arms feel surprisingly light, unencumbered and so FREEEEEEE! - 5 - The Runner In The Boston Jacket. This runner is proud AF - and rightly so. They've already run the "greatest marathon in the world" and CHOSE to keep on running. They can run as fast or as slow as they want. Heck, they can run down the middle of the road and all we will have to say is "Hey. Nice jacket 😏". This person reminds you that you really DO want to run a marathon and another one after that because then you will get to run down the middle of the road too. - We've all been (or will be) one of these runners at one point. Thank GOODNESS for our differences because how boring would this sport be without a little quirkiness?! - 🏃‍♀️long run🏃‍♀️ 16km, 80 minutes - Question: Which runner are you?

  • Friends and family! Exciting announcment: I was accepted onto my local Brookline marathon team and will be running Boston in 2019! I have dreamed about running Boston for a very long time. So cool to be running for Team Brookline, which fundraises for several local organizations in my community including the Mental Health and Teen centers and the Library foundation. I'm officially kicking off my fundraising campaign and would REALLY appreciate any donations you would consider. CROWDRISE LINK IN PROFILE. I'm humbled by the $7,500 goal that I've pledged, and every bit will count. If you're like many that consider a serious charitable contribution around this time of year, maybe you will consider answering this call. This kickoff push is between now and Wednesday, so please consider donating over the next few days. If nothing else, I look forward to hopefully seeing you out on the course in April! . #TB2019 #OneTownOneTeam #RunBrookline #BostonMarathon

  • Did you know going to a Dark Beer Fest the day before a long run is a really bad idea? You live and you learn. 🤷‍♀️🙄 . The first three threshold repeats felt like 💩. It didn't help that the Waterton wind tunnel was running on full blast. I really struggled dealing with the insane effort to maintain a 7:28 mile for 2 minutes. I stopped to catch my breathe and gently reminded myself the effort was going to be enough. And then came the turn around. And I blasted through the final 5 repeats with ease. . I wish I could back to the beginning of this run and be kinder to myself. I would have told myself that running a slight incline with 20 mph winds (plus too many beers) was the reason this run felt so miserable. Even after training for 12 marathons and multiple shorter races I still have to much to learn. 💜 . 3 miles up 8x 2 minutes (7:04, 7:27, 7:28, 7:01, 7:03, 6:50, 6:41, 6:34) 4 minute recovery 2 miles down . 11.18 miles, 1:29:22, 8:00/mile

  • My return to pre-sacral stress fracture fitness has been a lot slower than anticipated, and I find myself constantly reevaluating and modifying. Today is a perfect example of that. I had the #racetodeliver 4-miler on the calendar for a while with the goal to race full-out and break my current corral barrier. But evaluating my training schedule over the past few weeks (what with some minor injury flare-ups, freak-outs and unanticipated rest days), it was decided (with consultation from @moazzambrohi ) to not race and instead focus on building up mileage and my long run. So that’s what I did. This week I happily ran 5 days (the first time since May), I ran my highest mileage week since my stress fracture (30.5) and I ran my longest run (11 miles). I also ran the last four miles ( #racetodeliver ) at *goal marathon race pace while running with friends (@park_girl ). *To be completely honest though, my real goal for the #bostonmarathon is to cross the starting line and the finish line healthy and injury free.

  • Everybody wants it but not everybody is willing to do what it takes to get it. It’s about HARD WORK, SACRIFICE, DEDICATION and WILL. It’s about COMMITMENT! Being 100% committed to the process. Not being committed when you feel like it. It’s being committed in every aspect of your life. “Commitment is staying true to what you said you would do long after the mood that you said it in has left.” - @inkyjohnsonmotivate What are you willing to go through to get what you want?

  • ⛰ BE A HILL SEEKER ⛰ Took on the belgiumtown road hills today, with deathvalley☠️ mixed in there. Met @katrinadkitty in her neck of the woods. I love hills, we live where it’s FLAT, and have to drive a bit to find hills. So we did her 6 mile loop, and I was very excited when she said she wanted the challenge of running it twice! ⛰💪🏼 stronger bc of it! Swipe for my favorite quote about being a hill seeker, I’m sure many of you have seen already but thought I’d share again. 600ft of gain for breakfast and longest run since 10-7! Wouldn’t of enjoyed those hills as much alone, as always, thanks for a great run Kate! Can’t wait to hit these on the regular with #bostonmarathon training fast approaching!

  • Running gives me a sense of calmness & peace. It’s a place I find in my own mind where I can be free & just be where I am at. While I don’t always love it because miles & miles wears you down , I do love the peace it brings, especially on a beach in the middle of another world different from mine. And running I can do anywhere & at anytime I want, especially sunrise which is my favourite. That’s freedom & I love that. #thailand
