Marathoner x 2

Well, the DerbyFestival Marathon is over and done with. I am a two time marathoner.

First and foremost I am so happy that I finished, and that I finished healthy and strong. Was it the day that I was hoping for? No, it honestly wasn't. I'm still a little bit bummed about the experience and my finish, but I'm trying to look past that. I crossed the finish line in one piece, got a great medal, and had my two biggest cheerleaders (mom and dad) and the best coach in the world (Josh) there to see me through. At the end of the day, that's what matters most.

I'm working on a detailed race report so stay tuned! For now, my finish stats:

I hope the rest of you racers had a great weekend! For anyone who just got to go out and run, I hope you enjoyed every minute that you got to put one foot in front of the other.


  1. Sorry I missed seeing you Saturday!! When I saw Julia, she said you had just left when I got there! I think that's a great finish!!! I wasn't too happy with the way the race was run but maybe it's because I'm spoiled with smaller races?

  2. FRIEND! im so proud of you and excited for you that you are a 2x marathoner! that is a HUGE accomplishment and you ran a strong race i am sure! it was so perfect to see you at the start! hope we can catch up more next time i am in town :) CONGRATS again :)

  3. Congrats!!!!! Finishing a marathon is such a HUGE accomplishment and it's easy to get wrapped up in your time or other details, but you finished!!!! Congrats!
