Moving Forward

I had my last "test" run today and my shin had pain so the marathon for Sunday is officially off! 


Yes. Yes. and Yes.


shouting from the roof tops 


I ran 1.66 miles, my shin hurt, I could tell it was getting worse just with that short amount of mileage so I walked home and cried the whole way! 

I needed to. I trained 6 long, hard months in the 15 degree weather and 80 degree weather. I trained though stress, anxiety, exhaustion and fatigue and I LO*V*E*D every second of it.

To have it all come to a screeching halt is devastating and expected. 

I had my cry. 
I felt the disappointment HARD and now I'm moving forward! 

8:30 am tomorrow SPIN CLASS!!!!!! 
 and core workout!!!! 

I'm going to hit it HARD!!!!!


God has a plan for me and right now I don;t really like it much but there's always a plan.

Maybe I'll get in such great shape I'll qualify for Boston on my first marathon. You NEVER KNOW!!! 
But I do know there is a plan! 

Mark my words

I WILL RUN A MARATHON and I will achieve that life long goal probably even stronger and faster than I am now! 


Next Marathon I'm signing up for in October 21st, Albuquerque NM! 

If that one goes off without a hitch then it's on to Las Vegas Rock n' Roll series December 2nd hopefully with my blogger buddy {CHRISTY}


I guess I needed a little more of a challenge. 

Hey, I'll take it an be grateful!!!

I have an Arizona hot (thus treadmill filled) training of a summer ahead, but I'm looking forward to fall!!

I'm so sorry Hanna. I love your positive outlook....but it has got to be disappointing. And that is okay. I know that with your drive + work ethic you will make it some day to that starting line. And it'll be all that much sweeter because of this struggle.
Big hug girl...
XO - Marion

I was just coming to check on you before the race. I'm so sorry about your shin :( I'm glad you got your big cry out and can move on, get better, and get back to running when you're ready. xo
P.S. I am obsessed with those pants. So cute.

Okay, I've never met you but I'm seriously so proud of you. You've seriously kicked some running miles and I know you'll eventually qualify and run the Boston marathon. But I'm even more proud of you for realizing you shouldn't run this marathon. I'm always trying to stayed tuned into my body and what it's telling me. You're a smart runner for it. :) You're awesome girl!
