#20! Sevilla Maratón Recap!

I will never be able to top this birthday week and marathon #20 was officially my favorite. After I finished I kept thinking about how 25 year old me would be dying over yesterday’s result! I wanted a sub 3 so so badly in my 20s and I was able to do it at 38, … Continue Reading

Boston Marathon Recap!

(Shorts, top, shoes, socks, bottles) That was rough.  And this might be my longest post ever, but I have so many thoughts, so let’s start. We woke up at 5:25 am, I took a shower and got ready, and we were out the door at 6:10.  We walked over to Boston Commons, about a 10-minute … Continue Reading

I don’t know how … Continue Reading

Deseret News 1/2 Recap!

(Bra, shorts, shoes, socks) The lessons in running and racing never stop!  It doesn’t matter how many races I do, I learn a bit more about myself at each one.  I love that about racing, even if the lessons are a bit painful. Andrew and I stayed up at the Marriott Hotel in SLC.   … Continue Reading
