I signed up for my first FULL MARATHON!!! ย I will be running the Nike Women’s Marathon on October 20th &ย I couldn’t be more excited. ย I officially began training this morning!

The time has come for me to stop telling myself that this distance is too daunting, something reserved for the “superstars”. ย  The time has come for me to believe in myself and give it a shot. ย My goal is simple: finish the damn marathon. ย I want to start running and just keep running until I see the finish line. ย Simple enough right?! ๐Ÿ˜‰

There is something exhilarating about trying to tackle a new distance. ย I am excited to train, sweat, struggle, improve, learn, get stronger, and FINISH!

  1. Training to dominate currently (haha well maybe not dominate but do better). Check out the Runner’s World Coach Marathon Guide, it’s a great resource!

    Best of luck with your training and I look forward to your updates!

    1. Haha! I like “training to dominate” ๐Ÿ™‚ thanks for the tip, will check it out! Was stoked to receive the new Runner’s world mag this month and find that is chock full of 1st time marathon tips. Best of luck to you too!

  2. congrats! I’m coming to SF to cheer you on! I’m gonna see if Karen wants to come too, to celebrate her birthday and watch you cross the finish line.

    My new mantra…….Just do it, even if you suck at it! Love it!

    Love you!

    1. Hi Mama! Thanks so much! YOU & KAREN BETTER COME!!! ๐Ÿ˜‰ That would be so fun. Isn’t it a great mantra…there goes my excuse for not doing things because I “suck at them”

      Love you too!

  3. CONGRATULATIONS! That is so exciting ๐Ÿ™‚ I have heard nothing but GREAT things about their races so I’m sure you’ll have an amazing time!

    1. Hi! Thanks so much! Yes, I’ve done the Nike women’s 1/2 marathon twice now and it was fabulous! Can’t wait to take part in the amazing festivities once again. Hope you’re having a great Friday.
