I guess I’ll hop on the Boston marathon memory train! 💛💙 Boston 2016 was probably one of the best days ever which set the bar pretty high for the following years. I snagged a 2 min PR, my brother was (way) ahead coming in as first American and my parents were at the finish line cheering for us both. 2017 was special for different reasons..my mom ran, I shared the first half of the race with my best insta friends, and it was a struggle to get to the start with an injury earlier in training so I just felt grateful to be able to finish. However, I felt like I was fighting to stay above water in that training cycle and it tarnished my love for Boston. I didn’t make it to the start line in 2018 so that didn’t help either😂 ...even though I don’t think running it in those conditions would have changed that 🥶 my injuries were my own fault and a result of me trying to train above where I was and not listening to my body so although they weren’t Boston’s fault, it just made me less excited about it. That was my cue in January to pass it up and run Eugene. Im so happy I made that decision and I can’t wait to spectate and watch all my runner friends and my mom CRUSH IT!! It truly is an amazing experience and an AWESOME course.
