I did it - I ran back to back marathons! A lot of work but it was worth it - I’m pooped. #tworiversmarathon #adventuresindietland #marathonmaniacs

Only 152 days until I’m baaaack. #grandmamarathon I’m coming for you! 🏃🏼‍♀️ 🏃🏼‍♀️ 🏃🏼‍♀️ #favoritecity #duluth #cantwait

#fbf with one of my fav pictures from #grandmamarathon last Saturday! ♥ My sweet aunt took this picture of me at mile 24. I was HURTING badly and mentally, I was spinning a little bit. I had just seen my aunt at mile 19 and I didn't think I would see her, or the rest of my family, until the finish. I looked up and there she was! I was so happily surprised to see her that I gave her a weak thumbs up. It was just what I needed to get my head right. 😍♥🙌 . . . #gmas17 #grandmasmarathon2017 #happyrunner #instarun #runnersofinstagram #motherrunner #runnercommunity #marathon #marathonrunner #mnrunner #run #training #runnergirl #mnrun #instarunners #strongnotskinny #fitmom #runner #raceday #racing

This caption could have many names: Pain, sacrifice, support, appreciation, dedication, but the one I love the most is: Marathoner! Thanks to @paulkwi for getting me thru today and everyone that helped me get here today #grandmamarathon #oneanddone #crossfittersdoingmarathon #ilookgoodwithmedals #thankful

In Duluth MN to watch my wonderful wife complete her 1st marathon. The course has limited viewing points in the first 18 miles so I went to the local YMCA and had a 2 hr leg workout and lunges. Now time to relax and cheer #marathon #grandmamarathon #duluth #legday

Watching a Marathon is difficult. You have to find the perfect watching spot to cheer. Mile 24 might be where I'll hang out for the next few hours... #grandmamarathon #marathon #duluth #spectator #idontrun

Two #lululemon stores visit since I arrived in MN state 18 hours ago ✅ Mall of America and Edina 🤣💁🏻 #tourdalulu and pre #grandmamarathon shake out walk !!

20 miles in the books in 3:40. I felt great today (my legs didn't) but thanks to Brian for a great pace and coach. Thanks to my awesome boss (Dawn Allcroft) for sending me this shirt (65 is the amount of weight that I have lost). Truly helped me thru today #grandmamarathon #coachhill #ilovemyteam #dontletthepainstopyou #bebettereveryday

Day 2 complete and was not easy. My legs ached the whole run. Thank you to coach for pacing and motivating. Where I want to go will require pain, sacrifice and determination ( which I have a ton of right now). Bring on the big run tomorrow. #grandmamarathon #coachhill #texasheatcantkeepmedown

Day 1 of Marathon Training is complete in Texas. It was hot, but got thru it and didn't stop. 10 miler tomorrow and the big 20 on Saturday. Thanks to my ultra marathon coach and our trustee canine parter, Callie #grandmamarathon #texasheatisnojoke #ideservesugar #hotmaninhotweather

My year in running.... Well I can say this year has been my most challenging year in running. I got a lot of fun races two with my sister that was a blast! One with my mom as slow as it was it was such an honor to do it with her! My legs gave out most runs, but surprisingly I had done very well at the Mankato marathon. I always second guess myself and doubt if I can keep doing this, but then before I know it I signed up for the Grandma marathon... This coming year I plan on going in hard and strong. Starting boot camp soon and a personal trainer to help me run better! This is a year I plan on going in hard and strong and plan on cruising past the finish line with many PR's!!! Bring on the race's!!! #needmorefinishermedals #grandmamarathon #motherrunner #momlife #momtoboysonly

Yes, I did it! I’m officially a marathoner! The last 48 hours have been so surreal! I’ll sum it up by saying this, my first marathon was the toughest physical challenge of my life! Having done my first half-marathon there last year and knowing the weather there are usually cool. I was hoping for the “usual” 50F/overcast/drizzle but instead we got hellfire! After mile 8 and then on seeing many runners going to the side of the path vomiting, on knees with face down, dealing with cramps, sitting down with hands on face, dropping out of race, seeking help from the red cross military truck, black weather warning high heat risk flag, etc. had me worried! I told myself I ain't quitting until I have to crawl! I drank as much water as I could to keep myself hydrated and thank goodness I did hydrated myself really well beforehand! And I FINISHED! It was still worth doing my first there even though I ended up with being miserable due to the brutal heat/humidity, sunburned, swollen/puffy from heat, a small chaffing, and of course sore legs! I was amazed I did not have any blisters as I sure thought I would!!! Thank goodness for that! A HUGE thanks to the organizers, volunteers, spectators, and other 9,500 runners out there who made this such a great event despite the brutal unexpected heat/humid! They all shouted and cheered with encouraging words and homemade signs, handed out cold sponges, ice, water, Powerade, hoses, homemade sprinklers, and the great medical tents along the way and at the end! They gave my body and spirit the will to finish when I honestly doubted I would at mile 21. Champ!!! Same goes for those of you weren’t there physically supported me throughout the training and the Grandma’s Marathon event via texts, PM, FB messages, Glide, etc. - thank you!! Of course the only thing I refuse to thank is the weather! Ha! After seeing my family and friend cheering me on near the finish line and as soon as I stopped running at the finish line the impact of everything that I had endured emotionally and physically over the past 6 hours of the race and 4 months of training hit me hard. After I received my ran out of space *See the rest of the post on my FB page!*
