16 degrees. 12 miles. Pretty sure this is the coldest run over 10 miles I’ve ever done. Forced myself to stop and drink half way through, because that’s what you normally do when you run 12 miles. But you really aren’t thirsty when it’s that cold! #marathontraininghasbegun #winterrunning #marathontraining #grandmasmarathon2018 #revelbigcottonwood #revelbigcottonwoodmarathon

Throwing back to the very first Big Cottonwood Marathon! #RaceShirtFriday #Legacy #revelbigcottonwoodmarathon #revelraceseries

"Courage to start. Strength to endure. Resolve to finish." πŸƒπŸΌβ€β™€οΈπŸ…πŸƒπŸΌβ€β™€οΈ Every marathon is a unique journey. Although I ran the race alone, I could not have made it to the finish line without the support of my amazing tribe. I have the best friends and family on earth. I am thankful. I run because I can. I run for those who can't. I run because I am a runner. #revelbigcottonwood #revelbigcottonwoodmarathon #twentysixpointtwo #skirtsports #realwomenmove #skirtsportsambassador #3wracesambassador #MBFL #marathoner

I got some race pics back from #revelbigcottonwoodmarathon I always get a good laugh at my race pics. It's pretty obvious I couldn't fake it for very long. Most of these, I look pissed off or like I was dying. πŸ˜‚ I had to throw in my signature flex pose, since I did run representing Golds gym! #marathonsarehard #iloverunningihaterunning #goldsgym #getshreddedwithsherrie #runwithmuscles #funnyracepics #finishlineselfies

Can I tell you how excited I am that the #revelbigcottonwoodmarathon shirts were purple, my fav. πŸ˜€ 5 miles today, with a tempo mile thrown in the middle cause I really have no plan training wise....

Yesterday was a great day! I have so much to be thankful for! Although I was 5 minutes shy of my goal, I PR'd by 11 minutes and I'm thrilled! It was a rough race for me. I felt pretty tired from the second the gun went off! I pulled my hip flexor and quad in yoga the day before, and I was hobbling around all day on Friday. I was feeling worried and depressed that I had hurt myself the day before the race! But by mile 13 I put on my big girl face and told myself "the pain is only temporary. I've got this. I'm fine-dang it!" And I was. I finished and I finished well. Thank you family for running the half together and for being there at the finish line to cheer me on! Thanks momma for watching my kids at 3 am so we could get to the buses! Official finish time was 3 hrs 10 minutes! Pacing 7:15 min miles. #revelraceseries #bigcottonwoodcanyon #revelbigcottonwoodmarathon #runningrocks #marathon #pr #mindovermatter #painistemporaryprideisforever #beutahful #lovethisplace #borntorun

I did it! Feeling nothing but gratitude for my body staying healthy to train all these weeks and cross the finish line with a smile. Thankful for my amazing husband for supporting me πŸ’― during training. @jbkinchen you are my rock and I couldn't have done this with out you! There were a lot of 4am alarm clocks that he never complained about. Also, lots of love and gratitude to @kshoe4 for getting me into this mess and fighting for it by my side the whole way! Thanks mom for being my loud and proud cheerleader! Yes mom, I will run it for Houston baby! πŸ˜‚I love you Houston! Thankful for our safety during the hurricane so I could come out here and put out what I trained for. This was freaking hard and I'm so glad I'm done. #houstonforever #revelbigcottonwoodmarathon

My quads are toast. My smile is big. I PR'd. BOOM. Marathon #8 complete. #revelbigcottonwood #revelbigcottonwoodmarathon #marathon #marathoner #runnerchick #utahrunning #skirtsports #realwomenmove

Today was not the day I expected at all... ( maybe Altitude Sickness 🀒) Marathons are tough! I started feeling my stomach hurting at mile 1... yes mile 1!! 😳😩😩 really!! I decided to run a bit ahead of my co pacer and use the potty at mile 3 πŸ€’πŸ’©, I was done just in time to join them again πŸ™ŒπŸ½, two more miles went by and I had to go again!! Mile 5 πŸ€’πŸ’©, then again mile 7 πŸ€’πŸ’©, mile 9πŸ€’πŸ’©πŸ’©Seriously this was getting old!! πŸ˜³πŸ™„ by now you would think I had nothing left in me! I was able to eat a bite of banana and a couple bites of a honey stinger waffle, and boom mile 14 πŸ€’πŸ€’πŸ’©πŸ’©!! What the heck was wrong with me I was wondering!! My nutrition has been on all week! I didn't change anything!! 😭😭😩 I was able to keep going and stay on pace for the 3:45 finish for pacing and then I hit the turn around at mile 20.5 and my co pacer that was with me asked me how I was.. I told him it wasn't good.. about a half mile later... my body Just shut down! I couldn't decide if I needed to throw up🀒, πŸ’©, or fall over and faint! I was so discouraged but kept pressing forward and walking/ jogging.. a nice man at mile 22.5 gave me a Coke! I took a few drinks and that pushed me forward for a couple miles.. at mile 24.5 I started walking and I could tell I was all over the place! I kept touching the cones just in case I fell over! Mile 25 my friend saw me, grabbed my hand and held it and said you are coming with me! We are finishing this together! She held my hand as I cried hysterically 😭😒 and ran with her! I finished! I was able to somehow pick up speed for the last .3 into the finish and throw a smile on my face! What a morning! I'm sad, depressed I didn't make my time and feel defeated! I'm happy I was able to chat with people and help those stay motivated until Mile 21... Just sad I couldn't help them to the finish. I tried hard to encourage everyone around me even though I felt awful and I hope that I could help them. Moral of the story.. not every race is cupcakes and rainbows 🌈 we just do our best with what we have. 😊 tomorrow is a new day! PhotoπŸ“Έcredit my cute 5yr old who was so proud of me no matter what happened today! ❀️ and @zach_hawkins55 for the ones I look like death πŸ˜‚

Today's race didn't go as planned. I had a big, scary goal in my head. I started out well, and stayed just slightly ahead of my goal pace for about 19 miles. Then that out and back happened. And I fell apart. I even considered quitting. Thanks to my awesome friends, I made it to the finish about 17 minutes behind my goal time.
This marathon thing is hard! Glad that's over.

First Marathon (on 2.5 hours of sleep) ,ran in 3 hours and 42 minπŸ˜† & I'm addicted❀️ We CAN do hard things. Thanks to my sweet fam and @megrussell18 for meeting me at the finish line. This life is so sweet. #revelbigcottonwoodmarathon

26.2 + the REAL MVP here is my spray tan. Not a streak. Big ups to you, @stmoriz. πŸ™ŒπŸ½πŸ˜‚πŸ™πŸ½ #revelbigcottonwoodmarathon

Marathon #3 was a success!! Trimmed 15 min off my previous personal record. The #bigcottonwoodmarathon from @runrevel was brilliantly organized and as scenic of a course you will find. Massive thanks to @bigredham and @runnersedgeco for putting me through 18 weeks of SOLID training & advice to get this result. Congrats to @tkberg22 husband and good buddy of mine Dan Berg who CRUSHED it with a 3:10 and a Boston Qualifying time. Time to eat big and drink bigger as I don't have anymore training for a while!

Well...I finished. A disappointing finish. But I have been told by too many friends to look at the positives and not the negatives. At Mile 13, I debated whether to stop because I started having hamstring pain and sciatica pain. I wasn't running my usual downhill pace, but my pace was still a minute sub BQ, so I told myself to at least run to the end of the canyon, mile 18. By Mile 18, the pain was worse but I was still running sub BQ. And then one of the police officers I work with who was patrolling the canyon traffic was a total creeper and told me to run faster, fueling my brain with what I needed to push thru the pain. At mile 20, I text my best friend in Germany @snews0, who has been there thru my many marathons and when life decides to constantly give me lemons, and said...66 minutes to run 6 miles! He told me YOU CAN DO THIS!!! I believed him, just like every other race he's text me thru or paced me thru. I trudged on thru the pain. Mile 22 hit me like a brick and the pain was too much. I started crying as I saw my hopes of a BQ vanish, as I started having numbness in my left leg. I tried to run/walk, but my leg was gone. I walked and tried to jog when I could. I finished in 3:55:55. Being so close you can taste it just means that my next race, when injury free and training, I will blow the marathon out of the water and get my BQ! Thank you to all my friends, family and supporters who knew I could finish despite the huge obstacle and unknown in front of me! Now to eat all the food! #bqtraining #marathontraining #marathon #revelbigcottonwoodmarathon #revel #run #runutah #runanddone #runlikeagirl #26.2 #girlswhorun #girlswholift #girlsgotgoals #fitgirl #fitnurse #fitjourney #fitnessaddict #headdowneyesforward #pushlimits #pushyourself #marathonfinisher
