Hope you all had a great weekend!

I completed the 2015 New Jersey Marathon yesterday and the day couldn’t have been better. I will have a full recap up soon but I just wanted to share a few of the highlights:

1. I reached my A, B and C goal of finishing in one piece! And I reached my secret goal of breaking 5 hours.

IMG_5045Yup. I didn’t tell y’all that because I didn’t want to pressure myself having gone into this race SO undertrained and injury-plagued. I finished in 4:57:44, 19 minutes slower than my PR but this marathon wasn’t about PRs….it was about something bigger…love (more on that in my full recap).

2. Jane finished in 4:24(xx) which meant a 15 minute PR for her. She’s been hunting down a sub 4:25 and on marathon #3 she reached it and I couldn’t be more excited, happy, proud of her.

3. My brother, sister-in-law, niece and her friend came out again this year to cheer for me at miles 15 and 22 and brought me my ever important sweedish fish! More to come in the full recap but those fish helped me break through the wall at mile 18 and knowing they’d be there to see me at mile 22 kept me going when things got rough.
