These past 18 weeks took a lot out of me–physically, mentally, emotionally. Not just with training, but with life. So I've spent the past few days back in Ohio, because honestly, I just needed a minute: to pause, to slow down, to be flat-out exhausted; to feel proud, and disappointed, and all of the other complicated emotions that come from achieving a big goal, though not in the way you maybe first imagined or hoped; and really just to give myself a moment to catch my breath and let past few months actually sink in.
But now, as always, it's time to get back up, turn the page, and make the most of whatever this new season brings my way! // Thank you for all of the thoughtful messages & post-race support. Humbled & incredibly grateful.💛✨ #cantstopwontstop #alwaysforward
