4 months of hard training really paid off.

It was down cape cod so it was super scenic but the hills were brutal

My mom and bf rode bikes around the course to see me at certain points while my dad ran the routes they biked. My mom carried around a huge light up Q sign and rang a bunch of cowbells because she’s the best

I never hit “the wall” at mile 20 because I ate a sh*tload of sour patch kids and salt tabs

When I saw my dad at the mile 26 point he ran with me for a bit. we both burst out into tears and it might have been the first time I’ve ever seen my dad cry.

So yeah...super emotional, totally worth the pain, can’t wait to run Boston in April

That's awesome. Not many people can say they did that. I can't imagine running 26 goddamn miles.

I can’t even imagine running one mile. So for someone to do this is so impressive. Awesome!

I've never run more than 20 miles before! so mile 20-26 was just this unknown zone that was painful and beautiful. I was running along the ocean with the wind knocking me around and getting little splashes from the waves. there was pain shooting up from my feet connecting all the way to my hips but I was totally at peace with it. not sure there's any amount of training that can prepare someone mentally to settle into pain like that. I know a thing or two about pain, so I used it to push through. I just wanted it bad enough.


anywhoooo. thanks guys. I thought of a lot of my friends out there.

F*ck that's another 2.6 for me.

Good job kicking ass. Still have to qualify to run in Boston right? That's certainly a pace I don't think I'll ever meet.

Well done Rac!

Be sure to get someone ready with the camera for when an official tries to tackle you.

A BSR to bodycheck the dude would also be good.

lol guys it's a legit bib!! I know a race director who's one of the special operations dudes. he gets two bibs to hand out each year.
