Boston Marathon 2018

Boston Marathon 2018

The Boston Marathon is more than a race.  The entire weekend is a celebration of running with other athletes from around the world. I thought about making this into two separate posts but you really can’t have the race without everything else so here it is in one long recap.  (Feel free to skip down to the race portion!)  I’ve run this marathon three times now and have had three completely different experiences.  In 2013 I was there during the…

The Boston Marathon- Part One “The Best of Boston”

The Boston Marathon- Part One “The Best of Boston”

I have never had to write a two part race report before but I just don’t see any way around it this time.  So much happened in just a few short days on my trip to Boston.  I still don’t know if I’m ready (or will ever be ready) to open up about my experience in Boston but I will do the best I can.  Up until an hour or so after I crossed the finish line Monday afternoon my…

Boston Marathon Update- heading home!

Boston Marathon Update- heading home!

I am at Logan International Airport now ready to head home. I was too physically and emotionally drained to post anything last night.

Running a marathon is such an emotional experience and to be hit with…

Boston Blues? Just looking ahead

Boston Blues? Just looking ahead

Well, I have not posted much recently and I must admit I just haven’t been in the mood.  I’ve been busy, I’ve had family in town (my sister recently had a baby!!) and I just haven’t felt inspired to write much.  I recently passed the one year anniversary (March 31, 2011) of my stress fracture and I must say that I am glad that date has come and gone.  I am now officially one year out from the injury that…

Guess what came in the mail today???

MY BOSTON PACKET!!! Yes, I am ecstatic! Inside is my very important bib pick-up card that I must bring with me to the expo (along with photo ID). There is also a little booklet with race info and instructions which I plan to read from cover to cover. Then there is a little race merchandise and Boston apparel merchandise booklet. I CAN’T WAIT! Today I had a GREAT run! Kem and I met for our 12 mile run. It is…

It was a good week…

It was a good week…

Our family at the Memphis Zoo This week I stepped it up a notch. Maybe it was all the excitement of registering for the Boston Marathon. Maybe it was because so many of my friends from church and the community ran in a nearby Half Marathon yesterday. Whatever the reason, I had a good week running. I ran 5 days which hasn’t happened since the first trimester. Monday- 3 miles, Tuesday- 3 miles, Wednesday- 4 miles, Thursday- 4 miles, Friday-…
