My Boston Marathon Recap

This is going to be a long one. I had a lot of time on the airplane and also a lot of endorphins while writing this after a weekend of marathoning and girls’ trip fun. We fit 6 people into one hotel room while in Boston.  The night before the race all of us girls were in a really silly mood and ended up laughing for an hour straight so we did go into the race with some sore abs.

It had been a long time since my last race.  Over 4 months.  When I don’t race often I kind of forget how to do it and I get really nervous.  I decided to make the decision last second to run this race, to just not overthink it and have fun.   My alarm went off at 6:45 and we were on the bus at 7:30.  I had some Powerade, a white bagel and a honeystinger waffle (my favorite) on […]

St. George Marathon Recap

If you think after reading this recap that I am beyond in love and borderline obsessed with the St. George Marathon—>  good job because you understood exactly what I am trying to convey in this post.   One thing that did go so very wrong—>  my wireless headphones would not turn on.  At mile 8 when I went to turn them on to help me get up the huge hill they just wouldn’t work.  I even tested them the night […]

I have never done a race in Washington until this last Saturday and I am sure I will be back for more in the future after doing the beyond gorgeous RNR Seattle 1/2 Marathon.  The race started at 7 and we left the hotel at about 6:10 to walk a few blocks to the starting line (it gets light SOOO early in Seattle!).  It is so so so nice to be able to skip the whole ‘drive to the starting […]

The Marathon

The marathon.  It is kind of a beast:) What my face looked like for the majority of the second half of the race.  I am glad I am posting this for everyone to see.  Turns out that not every race is a good one:) As you can tell, things went downhill fast (NOT because my quad injury ((I took 5 weeks off from running leading up to the marathon to fix)) was hurting).  I would feel the area a little […]

Provo City Half Marathon Recap

I absolutely loved the Provo City 1/2 Marathon.  I will be back every year.  As much as I love traveling for races and seeing new areas, there is nothing like sleeping in your own bed on race night and running a course that you have done a million times in your training.  I woke up at 5 and quickly got dressed and triple checked that I had everything with me.  My dad drove and we went and picked up the […]

5k Recap and Lasagna Recap.

We met at 8 to get in a few miles of easy running (we got two in) and do other really cool things like pass around a bottle of 5 hour energy.  That stuff is the most disgusting thing I have ever tasted.   I ate a small bowl of cereal at around 7:40 and as I was leaving I spilled a diet coke that I had left on the counter from the day before all over the entire kitchen.
