Fell off the wagon...just for a bit. Celebrating. Finally back home.

That's what it's all about. A smile and a medal. I'm savoring the pain my legs are in today because it proves a great effort was undertaken. Never would I ever had thought that I'd be a marathoner. I'm proud of me! Never give up on something you can't go a day not thinking about...#medalmonday #blingitmondays #carmelmarathon #marathonmaniacs #marathon #runningcommunity #runninggirl #runnerlove #anothermotherrunner #teacherrunner #runcarmel #runforfun #runforlife #rungry

Finding waterfalls in Indiana.

If nothing else, the marathon let's you know what your weaknesses are. I have to work on strengthening my hips. I totally ignored any training other than just running a lot during this plan. If my hips were just a little stronger I could've, maybe held strong a little longer. At the finish, my legs started shaking and in the car it became uncontrollable. Painful cramps in my feet too. I'm so grateful to have my husband, @bronksadventures to support me in this journey. He didn't know what he was getting himself into 15 years ago. Heck, I didn't know I was gonna become an obsessed runner. There could be worse things to be addicted to. And I really am thankful for this IG running community I found here. I thought about you guys sooo much on that run. I wish some of you were with me physically to help me get thru those last few miles. The marathon really does humble you. (I'm choking up right now just thinking about it). Oh, and if that runner lady I spoke to after ever sees this...thank you for that conversation. Runners are really the best people. #fitnessmotivation #fitover40 #rungry #carmelmarathon #marathontraining #motivation #motherrunner #running #runforfun #runcarmel #runnerlove #runninggirl #runningcommunity #teacherrunner #anothermotherrunner #runninghurts

I guess only boy bunnies can be speedy. Girl bunnies are princesses (at least according to Hershey's.) Boy or girl, I'm gonna eat the heck out of this. #hersheychocolate #easterbunny #speedybunny #rungry #eatallthefood

First of all...that was not flat, at least not what a Floridian would consider flat. Just saying. I didn't quite get my bq time but I did get a huge, 6 minute pr. I'm finally under 4 and I'm happy! I'm considering this a successful marathon! Just to think that I only started running marathons in 2014. I've come a long way. Now for a break! I need it! Thank you for all the support you've shown me over the past few months. I thought of you guys so much during the race! I didn't want to disappoint y'all. #carmelmarathon #marathonmaniacs #halhigdon #advanced2 #runindiana #runcarmel #rungry #running #runforfun #runnerlove #womensrunningcommunity #teacherrunner #motivation #motherrunner #marathonshoes #morningmiles #fitness #fitover40 #fitnessmotivation @sparkleathletic @procompression

That's a wrap. That was #halhigdon hardest marathon training plan. Advanced 2. I only missed one workout and did only half of another (sick with listeria). Ran a total of 625.56 miles since December 18, 2016. Tomorrow is the victory lap of all this hard work. I'm excited to see what's in store. #marathontraining #halhigdon #advanced2 #carmelmarathon #marathonmaniacs
