The Streets of Philadelphia

Nothing like your mom helping you put your pants on.
Happy day.
Happy miles.
Thankful for family and friends that help make my crazy dream a reality. 
Lots of love.

"I've learned that finishing a marathon isn't just an athletic achievement.  It's a state of mind; a state of mind that says anything is possible." -John Hanc

Besties.  Liz and Jo (who rocked the half!)

Happy.  2:50:12 (6:29pace), 2:45 second improvement.

Post-race Maine Atlantic ice bath.
Now it's time to look onwards.  See ya'll in Boston :)

The List

Got this list earlier, which made my day brighter!

Ten reasons you're going to crush it this weekend...
1.) your attitude
2.) your speed work
3.) you live at 5,000 feet or something
4.) you've done this before
5.) your nutrition is perfected
6.) you're going to run your race
7.) you ain't scared of anyone
8.) you've put plenty of mileage into your training
9.) you know how to breathe
10.) you know how to finish strong

Maybe I need to write these things on my arm in Sharpie as reminders...
