A good snail mail day! 🐌 💌 Exactly 3 months ago today I soaked it all in for 5 hours 8 minutes 27 seconds. 🌧🏃🏻‍♀️💦 Grateful for every painful, freezing, soggy step from Hopkinton to Boylston Street! 🦄 Fighting childhood cancer one mile at a time with Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation! 🍋 Thanks for your ongoing support & generous donations! If you can, it’s not too late to donate $5. (Fundraising page link on profile)

#tbt #throwbackthursday Despite having run Boston 16 times, my course PR remains 3:11:35 from #bostonmarathon2016. So much for home course advantage. Love you, Boston, but you're a tricky one. Still planning to see a "2" over my head in Copley before I'm done with you👌

Happy Global Running Day! To say I’m blessed to be apart of this community is an understatement. This sport has taught me so many things - patience, humility, failure, resilience, and hard work - to name a few. Without running I would have no identity. Without running I wouldn’t know what it’s like to push myself past limits I’ve never thought I’d overcome... I ran with an actual smile on my face for all 11 miles today. #RightOnHereford #LeftOnBoylston #GlobalRunningDay

It’s been raining for 4 days. So here’s a #tbt to my kiddo chilling in the rain and “Newton gutter river” at the @bostonmarathon 2018. ⛈
・・・
She was in a snow suit. On a small camp chair. And totally draped by a poncho. A mile 17 camp out. 😆

#tbt to Boston 2018. Purchased a few photos, and some really show the squalls. Big ups to all the runners (and spectators) who were Boston Strong in that! ⛈❄️💨

May I present “left on boylston” ... signature drink at the Park Plaza Hotel in Boston’s Back Bay area. It’s so good. Normally I save tequila for when life throws lemons at me but I made an exception for this #Boston #BackBay #ParkPlaza #leftonboylston

Easy choice for #MedalMonday after a marathon major. Boston 2018 was definitely one to remember. 👊

Medal Monday. It’s crazy how long ago this feels, yet the scars and blisters remain. Can’t wait to get back to running and back to Boston. Next up: Chicago! #medalmonday #bostonmarathon #bostonstrong #boston2018 #leftonboylston #marathonmonday #onrunning #tracksmith #onambassador #marathonmajors #runner #instarunners #boylston

Race-Recap-Sorry for the long post. I am going to show you why it’s important to always go after your goal. I started this training cycle in January. I wasn’t able to start training when I wanted to due to injuries. Therefore this whole training cycle I felt behind schedule and I hardly had a down week. I had just completed my 22 miler 9 days before race day! Didn’t really get to taper but needed that run. If you were to ask me to do something on a Friday night I most likely told you no unless it was carb loading on a footlong from Subway. Anybody that would ask, my excuse was always I can’t, I have a long run in the morning. I took every Saturday since January to do my long runs by myself and several were done on a treadmill. Running is just as much mental as it is physical. It wasn’t easy and I’m now without 2 toe nails but all I could think about was it will be worth it. I can’t count how many times I teared up thinking about all the time and energy I had put into this race that was approaching fast. My mom and I landed in Boston on Friday night and every night on the news they talked about how bad the weather was going to be on Marathon Monday. Turns out it was the worst weather they have had on Marathon Monday in 30 years. What do you do other than know you came to run and that’s what you’re going to do. By the time we loaded the bus to ride 45 minutes to Hopkinton where the race starts my feet were already soaked. It took me 5 miles before I was able to feel my feet. I was so grateful to see over 9,000 volunteers standing out on the course yelling you’re a bad a**. Well thank you, sir! At mile 18- a guy yelled you just killed Heartbreak Hill. But I was so delirious I didn’t realize we hadn’t reached Heartbreak Hill yet. Miles 20-21 were my slowest miles as we were finally approaching Heartbreak Hill. I looked at my Garmin as my quads were tightening up and realized I wasn’t far away from a PR on a crazy day and I wasn’t ready to give up yet. I’m so thankful for Momma who made sure I kept my sanity and had everything I needed for that day! I’ve never been so appreciative for a 97 cent poncho. I challenge you to do something that scares you.

Preparing for that left on Boylston. Right before tears poured down my face. Even in the pouring rain, the @bostonmarathon finish is magical. 💙💛 3:19:22, a new PR, while it was not the finish time I had trained for all winter, the effort was there. I put so much work into this training cycle, which helped me stay strong on race day, but I know a faster marathon is in this body.
Regardless, this marathon was a humbling experience and I will forever hold it close to my heart. Thank you to my body, for getting me there and keeping me going. #keepshowingup

Swag haul worthy of a Marathon Major. Some bought, much free, but all earned in Hurricane Unicorn on Monday. 🌧🌬💦
・・・
Props to @clifbar for hooking my cheer squad up with a winter hat and trucker cap near the fire house. More props to @nuunhydration for the bottles and tabs, and @tracksmithrunning for the 🍌 hat and bandana.

Overwhelmed with emotions on Boylston Street as I literally & figuratively soaked in every step towards the finish line. Tears of joy, tears of pain, tears of sorrow. Grateful for all the spectators who lined the course & kept cheering enthusiastically for the 5+ hour finishers like me. 💙💛 #bostonmarathon2018 #boston2018 #bostonmarathon #leftonboylston #togetherforward #weruntogether #werunsocial #marathonmom #marathonmonday #womensrunning #teamwr #teamsparkle #runhappybos #charitymiles #everymilematters #train2bq #bostonqualifier #charityrunner #conquercancer #bravelikegabe #philadelphialegacy #alexslemonadestand #runalsf #run215 #runphilly #runboston #philly2boston #philadelphiarunner #myphillyrun #twinsruninourfamily

‪Team contributed to multiple WRs & victories to treasure - but never first across the line in #BostonMarathon. We gonna keep on showing up, working day & night for this. #LeftOnBoylston #HereToCreate

Keeping my head down and pushing through with a smile on my face! The wind and rain tried to push me around yesterday in Boston, but when I turned that corner on Boylston every step was worth it! #bostonmarathon2018 #weststride #runinrabbit #rabbitresults #bostonrabbit #TrainATL #keepsmiling #eyesontheprize #leftonboylston 💛💙

Turned left on Boylston this morning.... a day late? (This is a lame runner joke about the Boston Marathon which has only two turns in the course, the last of which is a left on Boylston St. very close to the finish line). Apparently my dentist is also on a Boylston. #leftonboylston #bostonmarathon #nocavities

How excited I get when I see my family on the Boston Marathon course cheering me on! Thanks for all the love and support. ❤️💙💛 It was a tough day out there. Finished my 2nd Boston Marathon in 3:51:37. Thanks to all the volunteers and crowds cheering us on. The weather was brutal for sure! 🦄🏃🏼‍♀️ #BostonMarathon2018 #togetherforward #family #support #running #runhappy #justdoit #amazingexperiences #RightonHereford #LeftonBoylston #crazyweather #thanksforthepic @grillo22389

Apart from feeling relieved, running down Boylston Street the last two years could hardly have been more different. In 2017 the high temperature, especially early on in the race, was a challenge. I decided to end my marathon career that day - and really meant it! Well, for approximately 48 hrs, but that is much longer than usual. 😄 My goal time in 2017 was 3:30. I finished in 3:44. 😬 Yesterday the weather was demanding in a completely different way: cold, windy and extremely wet! After two months of close to no running due to injury, I chose to run based on my heart rate. I never experienced negative thoughts, but rather fantasized about the upcoming Big Sur Marathon. My only goal this year was to finish. I did. In 3:41... 😊 (even spending a few minutes helping a fellow runner in need along the way). I guess it's the diversity and the sometimes surprising outcomes that makes marathon running so fascinating. 😏 #bostonmarathon #bostonmarathon2018 #bostonmarathon2017 #bostonmarathonfinisher #marathon #finisher #justdidit #leftonboylston #runner #runnersno #kondis #travelandrun #boylstonstreet #bigsurbound #boston2bigsur #runnersofinstagram #worlderunners #detfinnesikkedårligværbaredårligeklær #runnersworldnor #togetherforward #løpeglede #løper #runhappy
