Finish-line Friday flashback to Berlin 2016. My most awful race. My PB. The marathon and I have unfinished business. Looking forward to making more marathon memories in Chicago in 93 days 🙆‍♀️🏃‍♀️🇺🇸👊 #finishlinefriday #fbf #marathondreaming #marathonmemories #runtheworld

Absolutely loved this run. Great support all along a scenic course; friendly crowd with lots of good music (also knocked 37 minutes of my PB on the day) #antwerpmarathon (📷sportograph)

When I wear this t-shirt I feel strong. .

I’ve really struggled since the marathon to get back into running. I’ve only managed short distances and slow paces (even for me). .

At times I’ve wondered if I’ll ever manage to run properly again.
But then I put this shirt on and I remember that I can and I did. .

So it’s OK if for the next few months the best I can do is a run/walk. And it’s OK if I don’t go faster than a tortoise in peanut butter. The only thing that will not be OK, is if I give up. .

So it’s a good thing I’m not a quitter.
I am a finisher. 💪🏼🙌🏼👊🏼 #sweatyselfie #sweatyBetty #marathonrecovery #finisher #VMLM18 #running #fitness #strongisnotasize #buildingup #runfamily #SpiritofLondon #patienceisavirtue #postivethinking #thisgirlcan #runnersofinstagram #motivation #marathonmemories #x4l #lifeafteramarathon #gymselfie #movingforward #slowandsteady #onestepatatime #mamadidntraisenoquitter

Lunchtime run, sandwiched around two gym classes (abs and bootcamp) done. Very sweaty, very hot and very hard!
Finally got my #brightonmarathon top after not getting one at the expo. Seems so long ago now! Thanks for sending me one @brightonmarathonweekend

“It just took a little step, a right, then a left, then a couple million more, who’s counting? Hell, it’s only a mountain.” 🎵🏔. #TBT Niagara, Mississauga, Hamilton, Boston. 3:19, 3:23, 3:24, 3:31. Time to reverse the trend 😂. It’s only a mountain 🏃🏼‍♀️💪🏼. .

Loving my new keyring from a friend this morning. Another reminder that I survived a marathon, something I only ever dreamed of completing once upon a time. I’d say this gift incorporates my two loves of Lego and running, but I don’t always love the latter especially when yesterday’s 5k was so hard and I wondered how I actually completed 26.2 miles. That’s running for you, unpredictable, irritatingly hard but more often than not super rewarding. .

“Set a goal so big that you can’t achieve it until you grow into the person who can.” ~Anonymous
💕
I’m still trying to collect my thoughts and memories and feelings regarding yesterday... so this may be a bit of a jumbled mess. But, I couldn’t let this #medalmonday pass by without acknowledging the really big thing I did this weekend. The goal that was SO BIG that I had to grow into the person that stepped up to the start line and grow even more so into the person that crossed the finish line 26.2 miles later.
🏃🏻‍♀️
I’m still overwhelmed with emotion, in a surreal fog... I did it. And I’m so grateful for the support so many of you have given and your belief in me when I had doubts, most especially @emmilyag for being with me on this journey. 🙌🏻
Thank you all. So much.
💗

Tänä vuonna vähän myöhästyttiin... Kun on neljä kertaa nautiskellut Tukholmasta lenkkarit jalassa, ei näistä lehmuksista voi tulla mitään muuta kuin kylmät väreet. Tämä on se kohta, jossa Djurgårdenin maaseutulenkki vaihtuu kunnolla taas citymaisemiin ja tukholmalaiset hurraavat hurmoksessa väsyneille juoksijoille. Ja väsynyt juoksija saa taas voimaa jatkaa... #tukholma #maratonmuistot #fiiliksissä #marathonmemories #perheloma #familytime #thistimenorunning

Found an old company newsletter for when I worked at Wickes. My first ever London Marathon. Met the cast of Emerdale even-though I’ve never watched it so hadn’t a clue who they all were. Also managed to dislocate my knee just after Tower Bridge. Remember saying never again! Next year’s London marathon will be number 6 #firstmarathon #marathonmemories #running #london #emerdale #leukemia #flora #floramarathon #flasback #neveragain #number6

“My best memory from this year's marathon is from mile 22. Somebody reached out to give me a Mars bar. I dropped it but kept on running. A member of the public noticed this, picked up the chocolate bar, opened it and ran after me down the road and gave me it. I was so tired I could only take two bites but the kindness of that spectator will stay with me forever 🙌” Chris Burns.

Brilliant memories from almost 4 weeks ago! 😊❤️

#FlashbackFriday to my very first Full Marathon on June 1st, 2014. I had no real knowledge on how to train for a marathon. In those days, I was always running for fun and decided to register for this race around 3 weeks before race day, so I officially trained for around 3 weeks. 😨 LOL! I remember struggling so much during the last two miles, but also being so excited to cross the finish line. #FirstFullMarathon #MarathonMemories #RunnersCommunity

Throwing it back to the final straight of the @londonmarathon and the moment I caught a glimpse of the finish line. The aches and exhaustion instantly disappeared and everything around me faded into silence. I was just me and that finish line. My first marathon conquered and a dream come true🏃🏽‍♀️
.
I have finally got around to recapping my journey from beginner runner to marathoner, and my experience of the London marathon. You can catch the full extended version on my blog, all 3000+ words of it 😂The link is in my bio 🐰

Change of scenery this afternoon #nottinghamembankment #marathonmemories

#throwback to my 2nd marathon & first marathon win. Niagara Falls 2011 in 2:52. Such an awesome day and so excited for that finish line tape.
I will not be in Calgary this week for the @calgarymarathon because I have had some training set backs this spring, but I wish everyone competing the best of luck. #marathon #marathonmemories #calgarymarathon #calgary

My reminder of my 26.2 - I finally braved it! 😊 Looks good even if it is currently covered in wrap (so shiny and wrinkly!). Just next to my ankle bone. Love it 😀 #marathonmemories #myfirsttattoo #26point2

It’s been a month now, but I’m still proud! This was at about mile 23 when I spotted friends and was shouting back at them above a wall of sound, loving the whole experience of London Marathon 2018!
.
THANK YOU to EVERYONE who supported me along the way, through training and on the day, and all your sponsorship, to support the mental health of children and young people.

I smashed my £2,000 target, raising £3,432.55 / £4072.15 including Gift Aid 💛💙 for YoungMinds

You can spot my list of dedicated mental health miles on my right wrist, which were a great inspiration and focus in the 24 degree heat!
