Can't believe it's here

Tomorrow my dad and I will descend upon Hopkinton with 27,000 other runners.

It's been an amazing ride these past few weeks. I can't believe I'm running a marathon after 9 weeks of training. But, I feel confident about the miles I have put in. The main highlight of this cycle was a 7 minute pr in the half marathon. And the impending running of the oldest marathon.

I am sad because my biggest supporter is not here.


He encouraged me to run in the mornings I didn't want to.

He rode his bike with me for 20 mile runs.

He was patient while I avoided alcohol, and tried to eat healthier. And was supportive when I needed to run 6 days a week and sometimes in the mornings.

He stood out in the cold rain for 2 hours waiting for me to finish the Nike marathon. If that's not love, I don't know what is.

Thank you for being you!

And thank you to everyone else that has supported me during this adventure.


Pre race pasta day 4.

I'm ready to run the Boston tomorrow. Marathon #3 here I come.


Good luck to everyone running tomorrow!
