Whew. Post marathon, no holds, eat anything I want, as much as I want, Doug is about tapped out. Had an excessive amount of Easter lunch and dessert before getting home and getting in a very bloated 6.5 miler. Still feeling Boston in my quads and a food baby in my belly.
Not the most flattering picture but um ooh well hahah! Kicked off my Easter morning with a half marathon that I signed up for last minutes and totally didn’t train for .. I went in with a really good mindset and didn’t even think about the possibility of getting injured (which sadly I usually do and don’t have the best mindset )💕 I ran my heart out , set a good pace and ended up averaging about a 9:40ish min mile (started really fast but slows down at mile 10..) Yesss it was a pretty small race but I still was super stoked that I placed 1st and that I am actually able to run distance again ! After my injury and being in the boot for 3 months (over a year in a half ago) I never thought I would be able to run distance again and I thought my long distance running days were over buttttt guess they aren’t😅 ! I am not even going to lie I’m scared shitless of this 50k that I signed up for but I also know I am completely capable of doing it ! The body can achieve what the mind believes 💕 #run#sundayrunday#13 .1 #onlyhalfcrazy#halfmarathon#runner#runyourheartout#endurance#runningislife#running#myheartshappy#goals#lb#longbeach#medalsunday

What a fun day! It began with Easter egg and basket hunts Jason and I set up for each other post run, of course! Then, brunch at Fireside with Jasons parents and grandma. After that we stopped at home to change and pick up Axel. We went over to JJs parents house for another easter egg and basket hunt; Jason won this year, haha. We all had a super fun time!!! The dogs had a great time playing today too. Happy Easter, y'all.

Here are a few of the highlights from yesterday captured on camera. It was truly an EPIC day. So many personal bests and goals achieved.
Thank you to Kirk Bracey and Zoe Anderson for deciding to do this with me. Thank you Anne Mountfort and her husband Craig for driving down from Auckand to do lap 3 with us AND thank you David Carter for doing lap 3 and 4 with us and for carrying the Kumera.
We all felt every emotion and we learnt a lot about ourselves. I am so glad that I didn't do it on my own - seriously I wouldn't have achieved anywhere near my goals without the conversations and company of others. .
❤And lastly thank you to Nathanael Mcdonald for looking after 3 sick kids all day while I do crazy stuff like this. Ps... happy birthday Ivy.
Long slow run. I'm really not sure why I did this run less than a week after running Boston...I'm just asking for an injury. Somehow I needed it mentally to help shake out and turn the page.
Having some trouble figuring out what is next. I was planning to run Boston fast enough to requalify for next year, but I didnt. I was only planning on running one more marathon this year (CIM), but that one is too late to qualify for Boston next year.
So, here are the options. What should I turn the page to focus on?
1) Train for another sub 3hr marathon and run it in the next few months to qualify for Boston
2) Forget marathons and try training for a shorter distance like a half or 10k, focusing on speed
3) Forget marathons and train for an ultramarathon
4) Forget Boston next year. Take some time off before training hard for CIM and use that to qualify for Boston 2021
Also, I weighed myself for the first time after Boston after this run. I am down over 10lbs from my normal weight. I think that says something bad about my nutrition...
The Boston Marathon. I've waited a week to post this because I really shit the bed on this one and I still dont quite know why.
I stayed on pace for about 13mi and then fell off, finishing about 20min slower than my goal.
I dont know if I started too fast, peaked my training too soon, let the crowdedness keep me from a rhythm, withered in the 66 degree heat, etc. etc. I really cant say what went wrong so I guess I'll just say it wasnt my day.
I've never been in so much pain after a marathon. I collapsed at the finish with cramps and couldn't stand up for 30min, and the bones in my legs were hurting from the inside.

Whew! I'm beat. Whose idea was it to run a marathon again?
Right. That was me.
It took me a long to get into a groove this morning, but I took a lot of time to reflect and really appreciate my surroundings.
Got to see Easter bunny prints and 2 little bunny helpers (the other one ran away too quickly to get a picture of it) and it was clear enough that I could see both bridges into Destin really well.
I truthfully didn't even want to run. I had talked myself into just 4 miles. I got to the 5K point and I was like I can push to 5. Five turned into 7, then 8.1 and I'm so glad I did it.
