Well, that was the most incredible running experience ever.
Lots of emotions along the course, the crowds were spectacular and I think I got over my phobia of having to run an entire marathon in the headwind:)
We are off to the airport (I positively can’t wait to see Brookie) and so I will have a full recap up for you in the morning!
I cannot thank you all enough for all of your good lucks, the sweetest emails, incredible support and for being my internet friends. It means the world to me.

Julia @ Lord Still Loves Me
You inspire me every single day. The fact that you have come through so much. including some things that I can unfortunately resonate with, gives me so much hope. Even though I am not a marathoner, nor do I have plans on being one, your work ethic and constant positivity emulates into all aspects of my life.
You were awesome! I felt moderately creepy for recognizing you and cheering you on, but hey, it’s a marathon! Everyone could use the boost, right?!
You did awesome! Plus you look adorable in the space blanket cozy. By the way, you and my brother were within a minute of finishing! Crazy, right!
Drink lots of water and do some walking around the airplane!

This year was such a fun race to watch. You will have to watch it when you get home! My favorite part: Meb crossing the finish line but first, grabbing Hilary Dionne’s hand to cross with her. So adorable. That Meb is the best.

Congrats on an awesome race in not so awesome conditions! Have a safe trip home!
Congrats Janae! Way to go!! My mother & I spotted you in Ashland and were yelling like maniacs (our cheering squad numbers were down as several in our party left temporarily in search of hot coffee). Thanks to your eye-catching Stonyfield singlet & speedy legs (at this point you were about the 6th woman in your wave & ahead of the masses) you were much easier to spot than some others we were looking for. Outstanding job – awesome training & way to tough it out & go fast in some tough weather conditions! Thanks for sharing your journey with us.
Congrats! We are all so proud of you!
Congrats on an awesome run! Can’t wait to hear all about it!
