I Have No Words

I wish I could explain to you all how much this blog and the community I’ve been lucky enough to become a part of means to be.

Specifically on days like today.

I STRUGGLED in my race today guys.  I mean it was hard.  30 degree temperatures, lots of hills, mental fatigue.  Struggled BAD.  But something that kept me moving forward was knowing how much you all had believed in me — and how much I DID NOT want to disappoint you, or myself.   This blog has been good since day one about holding me accountable, but today you guys helped to get me through 13.1.  And for that, I don’t even know how to begin to thank you.

I’ll be back with a recap tomorrow…but for tonight, I am EXHAUSTED.

Directly after the race, my family and I hurried home to shower up and head to the air port.

I was in a hurry to get there because my number one priority were booze and food by that point.

The tap room at the end of East Terminal in St Louis is surprisingly good and my go-to when I make it home.


I ordered a grilled buffalo chicken salad and ate pretty much all of BOTH Of my parents fries.  Because that’s how I roll.

I got on the plane still feeling good, but honest to god CRASHED the second we got into the air.  I don’t know what happened, but all of a sudden I was asleep.  I guess my body was tired?

I slept off and on for about an hour — then read more of my book and snacked on some Wheat Thins (I am going to become a Wheat Thin…).

By the time I got home — I was beyond exhausted but excited to see my furry family

Obviously they’re thrilled to see Mom as well.


And now, it’s more salad, wheat thins, wine and water for this girl.  Until I crash.  Yes it’s not even 730, but hey I’ve been up since 330 my bodies time and I ran 13.1 today.

This my friends, has been the weirdest, craziest, BEST Sunday I’ve had in a long time — I’m just sad to see it end 🙂

Back tomorrow with a full recap.  Love you all!

Question of the Night:  I feel disconnected!  Please fill me in on your weekend!
