Congratulations! I couldn’t be more proud of you if I personally knew you. I’ve gotten choked with disappointment for you but pride in you before when you were just short of your goal time after so much hard work. It’s funny how my reaction to you meeting your goal makes me choke up just the same. Rest, eat, enjoy the satisfaction of a job well done, then rest and eat again.

THE BIGGEST CONGRATULATIONS!!! When I saw your Instagram post, I got goosebumps and teared up at the same time! You have worked so tirelessly for this goal, and I am so, so happy for you!!! I literally just texted my family and said (in the most non creepy way!), my BFF just got her sub 3!!!! I have been referring to you as my running BFF since I started reading your blog years ago, so they totally get it. :) My dad replied with, “Persistence pays off!”and I think that totally captures you and your spirit. Congratulations again, and I could not be happier for you, all the way from NH!!!
