I was on the news and what someone’s hair looks like after running a marathon.

First, it is pretty comical to watch me attempt to go up or down the stairs right now.  I am sore.com after the marathon.  I do kind of like being sore because it reminds me of what I did that made me so sore—>  ummm…. 26.2 miles.   I like remembering that.

I had an awesome opportunity yesterday to be interviewed on Fox 13 and talk about my Boston Marathon experience and Team Stonyfield!  I was sweating bullets before I got to the station but everyone was so ridiculously nice and encouraging that they made me feel right at home once I got there.

Fun story about the below picture—> as soon as I got to the studio I thought it would be the perfect opportunity for a selfie.  I took a bunch and then somebody came and opened the door to let me in.  Turns out this is one of those doors that everyone can see perfectly out of from the inside when I just thought it was a dark window with a reflection and that they couldn’t see me.  I was caught selfieing (not even remotely a word) it up.   Yeah, I felt pretty awkward.

Before my segment I got to chat with Max and hang out with the producer and learn all about how the show is put together!  Now I kind of want to be a Newscaster someday.

IMG 9371

Here is the clip!

 

My family all got together to watch and my brothers and their families watched it online too.  My mom said that Brooke giggled throughout the entire thing because she couldn’t believe that I was on TV.

Once I got back my parents wanted to go out to celebrate the marathon by eating at one of my favorites.

Brooke calls this place the Breadstick Restaurant.  I think they should probably reconsider their current name and go with what Brooke thinks it should be called.  Who wouldn’t want to go to a place called the Breadstick Restaurant?

Salad and carbs, two of my staples.

After dinner we decided that a park date was pretty necessary, the two of us had a lot to catch up on.  PS I told you I was never going to take off my Boston jacket.

IMG 9389

We spent a good hour or so burying the dinosaur.  I can’t think of any better way to spend my Tuesday night.

IMG 9400

I’m sure you probably guessed it already but I most definitely had my favorite post-race treat of an apple fritter and a diet coke.  I work well with a reward system.

Fell free to check out my favorite glute exercises that are fast and effective HERE!!!

Okay, one last thing.  This is what someone’s hair looks like when they get home after running a marathon in the pouring rain followed directly by taking a 5 hour flight.  It took quite a while to brush it all out.

What is your favorite post-race treat?

What are some of your favorite glute exercises?

Got anything exciting going on today?  Anything exciting happening the rest of the week?

Who else has sore legs right now?  

-I think it is going to take a few days for my quads to feel normal again!

I know how my hair looks after 6 miles in the rain so I can’t eve imagine! Congrats on the news clip, that must have been so cool for your family to watch!

I like ramen noodles after a race. Definitely not healthy, but I am usually craving salt, so that’s what I get. Usually my husband brings me a chocolate cake donut from Starbucks at the end of a race too. He’s a keeper!

Enjoy a few well earned days off! And maybe a few more apple fritters!

Reply

I have extremely sore legs right now but it’s from Barre.

You look adorable on TV!

Congrats again!
Steps and getting up after sitting (hello toilet!) are painful for me after Boston!
It was so worth it!
I’ve been craving salty foods.
I’m going for a nice flat nature walk this morning. :)

So cool that you were on TV! Eeeeeek!

Reply

That’s so cool you were on the news!

My post-race treat is diet coke and lots of Reese’s cups. Mmmmm

Tomorrow I’m getting my hair done finally – so that’s something exciting! These roots need help :)

Reply

That is so cool you were on TV! My legs a bit sore, but not as bad as I thought they would be.
I got a really great surprise at the end of the Boston marathon when I finished… they wished me happy birthday! The best part was my husband had a camera and recorded it, but he never asked them to do it – it was a total surprise to both of us. Hope you can check it out… http://www.techchickadventures.com (it’s a super short clip, I promise!)

Reply

That clip was so cool, so awesome that they wished you a happy birthday!

– My favorite post race treat is some form of delicious unhealthy carbs. After Rock n Roll Vegas, I had a Bobbie sub from Capriottis (it’s basically a loaf of French bread cut and stuffed with stuffing and turkey)…it was SOOOO good after running for so long!
-I like to do hip bridges and donkey kicks for glute exercises. We do a lot of those in CxWorx classes :)
-I’ll be in an academic letter ceremony for my school today. I’m going to be receiving a lamp! Other than that, I can’t wait until Saturday. I have another day of hiking planned!!
-My legs are sore from increasing my squat weight at BodyPump. But, I can’t imagine how your legs feel right now! You rocked that marathon!

I’m so happy you had a great race. And how cool that you got to be on TV! That’s awesome! Take care!!

is it ridiculous that hearing how sore youu are after the Marathon has me super excited about starting to train for my second Marathon this fall? I can’t wait!!! :-)

You did such a great job on the news segment!

Reply

Love your news segment! Good job.
How do you feel that your nutrition played a role in the marathon?

Reply

I LOVE how animated and enthusiastic you were in your news clip!

* My favourite post-race treat is a burger! Preferably accompanied by poutine.

* Favourite glute exercises…no. No favourites. They are all evil. Useful, but evil.

* My excitement today is that after my second session with my trainer, I have a new heart-rate zone for my various runs, and I’ll be doing my first tempo run in my new-to-me zone 3 today. The excitement part is only if I manage to get through the whole thing without giving up and just laying down on the treadmill :)

* Aaaaaaaaand in no way am I going to complain about my sore legs, when yours are sore from a marathon!

so fun watching the clip! you’re too cute =]

Awesome!!! My legs are still sore from Boston! But, thank goodness I finally warmed up. Never been as cold as I was in that finishers area. But part of my post race meal was sharing my marathon memories with my awesome family (who braved the elements as well)!!! Mi cannot wait to do it again next year, with a little less rain and wind!!!!!!

Reply

That’s so cool you were on TV!!
My hair turns into a rat’s nest after runs. Braids are lifesavers!
Beer, bacon, and either a piece of cake or a brownie are my favorite post-race treats.
Bridges and squats are my favorite glute exercises.

Reply

First of all, you are ADORABLE.
I also ran Boston and went to Marathon Sports on Boylston yesterday to get my medal engraved. It was so amazing to see all of the purple jackets walking around. I hope you enjoyed our city. What an amazing day!!!

Your news segment is awesome! You did such a great job and were just as charming as you are on the blog :) I would have been so nervous too!
One of my favourite glute moves is lots of three legged dogs in yoga! I always notice the burn the next day! :)

Glad you and Brooke are reunited and that you guys went to the breads tick restaurant; )
My favorite post race treat is a biggg coffee

you did a great job on the news! I remember being interviewed on our little college news station (about our cross country team) and I was nervous once I saw all the cameras, haha!

Those breadsticks look incredible! How fun you were on the news! I can’t wait to watch that later!

Well I have been pronouncing your name wrong this whole time. I thought it was pronounced Janey. D’oh. You looked great on camera, I would have burst into tears & run off screen from anxiety :/ Well done!

Reply

My favourite post race treat is definitely pop and a donut. Perfect for the drive home from the race.
Funny that you mention a restaurant named Breadsticks. That was the name of the restaurant on the TV show Glee. My son calls his favourite restaurant the ‘fish restaurant’ because it has lots of fish tanks all over the place.
Nothing exciting today. Work, gym, spend time with my boys, sleep.

Reply

So I watched the video and have decided you are just the cutest!!! Congrats on such a big opportunity!!

My legs are sore still from Monday too. But I think I might go on a small recovery run today…that a usually helps to get my blood flowing and feeling a little better!

Hugs and glad you had such a wonderful reunion with the Brookers:)

Reply

Oh my gosh you’re the cutest!!! I would watch the news more if you were on TV :) Nice job!!
And the Breadstick Place is the best name. I love those breadsticks! So so yummy!

Reply

You were so sweet in that video! For some reason when I read your blog – I think of your voice as deeper. I think because your positivity reminds me of my sister-in-law and she has a raspy voice :) Ok – I’ll stop being weird.

My favorite post marathon treat is potato skins with a big, draft (has to be draft) light beer. Also – sore legs here….had my first track workout since my babies. 400’s. You forget how much track work hurts. Bet it still does not come close to post-3:13 marathon soreness!

Reply

You are so ADORABLE in that news clip, congrats on the press!

(I should have taken a picture of my hair after Ironman Louisville. 2.4 mile swim in the gross Ohio River, hair bunched up in a helmet for 7 hours, and then a marathon in 96F heat. I literally had to cut out some knots when I got home 2 days later.)

Reply

LOVED your TV moment–so precious!

My favorite post-race treat is sugar cookies–Tiff’s Treats to be exact. There’s a race I do every year that has Tiff’s Treats in the post-race party area, and I’m pretty sure the only reason I do that race is for the cookies. It makes sense to me.

I am looking forward to today, because I don’t work my second job on Wednesdays!! I’m a teacher, and having to go straight from teaching ALL day to another job until late at night is very draining. So I LOVE Wednesdays!

So glad you got to enjoy your fritter and Diet Coke, and I hope the rest of your week is full of FUN and REST!! :)

Reply

Every time I see a video of you and hear you talk, I think of Amanda Bynes! Specifically, the Amanda in She’s the Man (pre-crazyfest)!

My favorite post-race meal is a gourmet, OVER THE TOP breakfast: French toast, waffles, or pancakes with chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, bananas, sprinkles, whipped cream, etc. etc.

Reply

I’d say your hair looks pretty good! Since I have naturally curly hair it ends up a knotted MESS! That is so awesome that you got interviewed!

Reply

Congrats on your awesome run in Boston! Your personality shines through on your blog, and now on TV! I bet your parents where just beeming big time! Thanks for sharing your life with the world. It’s been so long since I’ve done a real workout that I can’t remember my post workout favourite food. Hoping that changes real so. I am hoping to go for the first paddleboard of the season this week.

You are amazing. So so happy for you running Boston, and I loved the news clip! Keep up the positive attitude. It’s healing for many

Love that you were on tv! My favorite post-race is always sweet – oatmeal with fruit and peanut butter. Or Red Mango. Or both!

Awesome interview!! You deserve all of the attention for running such an awesome race!!

AHH so exciting that you got to be on the show! You’re so cute and I agree that you totally remind me of Amanda Bynes way back in the day :) And that apple fritter looks incredible!

Oh my gosh! You are such an inspiration! I loved your news clip, you looked so comfortable! Congratulations on such an amazing week! You are making me want to sign up for another marathon (& I’ve sworn them off until after grad school is over ). Enjoy some rest Janae!

Janae you look beautiful and congrats on Boston! You HAVE to come back next year Eataly will be open! Stairs are easier today for me, and it’s 60+ degrees in RI already but I still plan on living in my Boston jacket for the foreseeable future !

You did so great on the news, Janae!!! You didn’t seem nervous at all :)

I don’t have a favorite post-race snack but I usually go with something on the unhealthy side. I ran a race, and I stay away from greasy food when I’m training. I get the greasy, unhealthy food out of the way and I’m good to go.

Reply

Congratulations!! We have a Girls On the Run at the middle school where I teach. Have you thought of volunteering with your local middle school, or your nieces’ school to do a Girls on the Run group? You would be a great role model and inspiration for many young girls- especially with the goal setting and achieving of running Boston.

Congrats again!

Reply

Janae, congratulations!! You had a very inspiring race at Boston! Haha you were awesome and very sweet on the news. I would definitely go to a place called the breadstick restaurant. I’ve had hair similar to that before- not fun!! Haha post marathon legs are the craziest feeling. My legs are sore (from a 2 week strength camp) but not that sore! I’m loving the importance you’re placing on doing supplemental strength/endurance/motor control exercises. I like glute bridges but it took me a long time to be able to do them properly and it’s still a work in progress- I really like skate walking, my glutes are always sore after that! I love your rewards system. I’m a huge fan of anything sweet but it’s different each time.

Reply

Your news segment was so fun!! I’m a big fan of Girls on the Run and will be running with them in their end of season 5k in a couple of weeks.

I just watched the news clip and I am crying tears of joy for you! I am a daily reader of the blog. I am a mom of three kids (7 year old boy, 6 year old boy and a 3 year old girl). I am a runner. I am just about to run 3 marathons on 90 days, marathon numbers 7,8 and 9. No where near as fast as you but I just feel proud. Thanks for your daily inspiration. And Congrats on Boston. I will run it someday!!

You are adorable!! Love it!

Great work Janae! I still think you ran an incredible race (esp with those conditions) and am so excited to watch you crush that 3 hour mark! How neat to run Boston – what an experience! And you did amazing on the news – seemed natural and so sweet and genuine. Way to go all around. :D

Reply

Congrats on an incredible marathon!!! And I loved your interview:)

How awesome that your tank matched your jacket perfectly. Got love it when that happens!

I have not done anything impressive like, oh, you know, running a marathon, but I’ve been feeling pretty fatigued this week. I’ve uped (is that a word?) my workouts a little so I guess I’m just feeling it. Going to push through and just really enjoy my rest day when I get it!

Oh I feel you on post-run ratty hair! I am plagued with that big-time, especially in the summer!

Okay, Brooke has to be the happiest child on the face of the planet! Love her cute curls!

You are seriously adorable in that clip! Congrats again on a fabulous race! All of the talk of Boston makes me want to run it!!

TV looks good on your, Janae. Your energy and positive attitude is definitely infectious. :)

I always splurge on a monster gourmet burger after a big race – as soon as my stomach can handle it.

It’s so funny to see how people move the day after a marathon. Sitting on the toilet and trying to get up = biggest issue for me for sure!

Reply

omg that tv clip was amazing- you did great! I was totally smiling the whole time I watched :)

Reply

You are soooo good on camera!! Had to comment to let you know. Also, yes my legs are sore but I’m so embarrassed it’s to admit it’s from walking 5 miles. I’m trying to coerce my baby out and I hear walking does the trick ;) heaven knows there’s no way I’m running at this point!! So impressed by you.

Long time reader and admirer, Laura

LOL selfie busted! I can’t tell you how many times I have thought I couldn’t be seen and acted like a goof. Oh well, life is for living right? Love hearing about your experiences, I would have disliked the cold, for me that’s the worse! One reason why I live in central California. We don’t really do cold here, LOL. Yipee for the fritter.
Keep being you, you are really everyones idea of a best friend. So genuine and caring. Thank you for sharing you.

Congrats on your TV appearance. NOW YOU’RE FAMOUS! haha. That’s awesome though for real.

I think I may end up with sore legs tomorrow because I am planning on having a leg day today at the gym. Gulp.

Hi Janae! You are so cute on TV. Nice job on the interview! And of course, you deserve to take it easy now. :)

Aww, now after seeing the video I can hear your adorable accent in your blog posts! Hope your quads feel better soon. Take lots of ibuprofin!

Im simple. Burger and fries for a post race treat. Then maybe ice cream.
I’m running the New Jersey marathon on Sunday. It will most likely be my slowest marathon ever because I missed so much training (like 200 miles worth). But my knee is healthy now so I am going to take my time and enjoy the journey. I set a pr there last year but this year is all about just finishing. :)

Reply

You definitely deserve a donut! I’m sore too but not from a marathon. The squats from my workout a day ago are reminding me of how many I did.

Reply

You are just the cutest!! Congrats again on your awesome Boston finish! I think most of us running on Monday fell short of our goals by a little bit based on the weather, but I think we are all extra hard-core runners for persevering through the conditions! I’m pretty much never taking this neon purple/coral jacket off. Ever. XOXO!

Reply

I watched your interview yesterday, you did SO well! I feel your pain- I’m still sore from my race on Saturday. Stairs hurt and wheelchair ramps are my friends! I opted for burger & fries as an after race treat, but previously it was the biggest skillet breakfast ever + coffee + mimosa.

My favorite post long run or race food is tacos with chips and salsa. I need salt!

been there, with the hair hahaha. I usually through some leave in conditioner or even coconut oil in there for a couple hours/overnight and then attempt to wrangle it. those usually help to relax it all…

My favorite post race treat is In N Out! Love that combo of salty fries, fatty burger, and sweet ice cream. Yum.

I giggled when you said you got caught “selfie-ing” it up! It happens.
I really enjoyed watching the news segment. Way to go, Janae.
I don’t race but I still treat myself after a workout. Usually a giant coffee w/ almond milk and a peanut butter sandwich. I cannot even imagine how sore your quads are. My quads are sore this week because I upped my mileage (but even my weekly mileage won’t add up to what you did on Monday).

Reply

Is there any greater feeling than stretching sore legs? I don’t think so.
My favorite post marathon treat is definitely beer and anything new and local to wherever I’m running the race!

super cute interview! so fun!

My legs were sore Monday and Tuesday. I ran a super hilly half (and PRed too) and I got a sports massage after work and I feel so much better today. Ready to get right back at it.

and I have added glute exercises to my nightly routine and have seen injuries that were plauging me go to the wayside already. I will add in the side leg lifts too.

and my postrace treat-mimosa everytime!

Reply

Your clip is so sweet!!! My favorite post run snack is chips and salsa! Single leg bridges are my favorite glute strengthening exercise. I do not have sore legs because I’m in a raper for the Lost Creek lake 30 k this weekend! Yay!

Oh my gosh, your accent! :D

What is your favorite post-race treat?
**Burger and fries, heavy on the fries.

What are some of your favorite glute exercises?
**Bridge, deadlift, squats – all variations.

Got anything exciting going on today? Anything exciting happening the rest of the week?
**Emmett (my 5 yr old) and I made a brain hat this morning. That was pretty cool. Now I am writing (and surfing the web).

You did great in your interview! I crave either a steak or a burger after a marathon, and mint chocolate chip ice cream if I have an appetite for anything sweet.

I love your news clip! I still cannot get over how fast you ran Boston in those crazy weather conditions. You’ve inspired me to hopefully qualify & run Boston one day!

Love squats/lunges/deadlifts for the good old gluteus.

After a race I allow myself whatever naughty treat I’m currently craving!

WOW that was a great interview!!!!! Nice job on your time especially in those wet and cold conditions. After a race I treat myself to a nice long nap! :)

Reply

Loved the news segment!

I took the “easy” part of my long run to a whole new level this past weekend. 3 phone calls, a text, a tweet, a few pictures (there was an adorable baby goose on the path with its mama), a 15 minute conversation with some other runners, 3 bathroom breaks and lots of water stops. 14 miles has never taken so long. So, I’m the opposite of whatever sore is. :)

Congrats again!

How awesome to be on a news segment!!!

Oh, I thought the tangled hair only happened to me!!!! I only braid my hair because of this and then I feel my braid bang my back the entire time! So frustrated that I have thought about cutting my hair……. Takes forever to brush out and not to mention the detangler that I have to use!!!! UGH!!

Congrats again on Boston!

Let’s clarify. You didn’t just get sore because you ran a marathon – you ran a marathon at a kick a$$ speed. Congratulations!

First time commenter here- congrats on your race!!! You put SO much work and energy into getting to Boston; you must be on cloud 9! Your news clip was adorable, too. What’s next for you?!

AH JANAE! You did great! So fun seeing you “live”. That selfie story is PER-FECT. I feel that embarrassment girl. I got caught taking a car selfie once. But please, I still take them.

Again, so proud of you and this has been so fun following your road and success to Boston!

Awesome job on your TV interview! You are extremely bubbly, it is infectious :-) Favorite post race treat? Ice cream! My legs are hurting me today for a barre class I took on Monday. Reminding me never to take that long off from strength training again.

Great interview! I had no idea your sponsor with Stonyfield was involved with GOTR. I wish you would have blogged about that through your training. GOTR is such a great organization!

My exciting thing of the week is that I just signed up for my second marathon! Twin Cities marathon in 164 days and my favorite half marathon coming at me in 38 days!

It was weird hearing your voice. I’ve been reading your blog for a while so I gave you a voice lol. Hope I don’t sound like a creepy stalker.

My hair is such a mess after just a short run in the rain I can only imagine! Did you fly home directly after the marathon or were you able to shower first? Flying home without a shower would have been the worst!
