Do the things that scare you. Because that’s how you’ll grow and feel alive.
After my first marathon, I said that I’d never do another one. Two years later the @tbrdream marathon fell exactly on my birthday so it seemed like a big enough sign as any. Despite the lack of training, I was pleasantly surprised with the sub-6 finish. The first few hours of being 27 were well spent
FIRST FULL MARATHON
26.2 miles, 1 mile loop, 12 hours to do it, final time: 4:03:06! You guys. This is huge for me. I just started long distance running like 7 months ago, and I planned on waiting to do a full marathon for at least a year or 2. But I just went out and DID IT. Sure I had to stop for breaks and do intervals a few times, (which I never do) but I finished. Sure I almost passed out and threw up a lot afterwards, (which I guess is a normal thing now after my races haha) but I FINISHED! God has been so kind to bless me with the strength and resilience, and more than that, SO MUCH SUPPORT from my running friends! You guys literally made this possible for me!
All in all, a pretty cool day •
Also huge shout out to @btrcrm who ran the last 2 Miles with me and helped me get to the finish line! Thank you so much! :
And once again, huge shoutout to @theginjaninja26 who is running her first 50 MILER! #superbeastmode
To God be ALL the Glory
