Personal Best
A new marathon personal best in April, of 3:07:30, for fourth-place female at the Carmel Marathon (Indiana). I committed myself to upholding my end of the deal: doing the work. There’s no questioning, second-guessing, or doubting. I just get out and do it.

Eye on the prize! I remind myself of the goals I’ve set. You don’t get what you wish for — you get what you work for!

To break 3 hours in the marathon (6:52 per mile pace) and that’s what I’m working toward every day.
