It was the race that almost didn’t happen. But it did, and I’m done, and I’m proud. 13.1 miles on an 80+ degree day.
Headed to Cincinnati now to watch Casey get ready to run 26.2! More to come! Thanks for all the virtual cheers – I felt them today. :)

So happy for you! So glad you ran back in and got your gear and did not quit before the start!!
Congratulations on your finish! Great feeling isn’t it?
Way to go Emily!
congrats on your finish! the heat must have been a shock coming from seattle this time of year. i have a 6 yr old and i struggled with pushing myself in running for a long time. i was ok after he was born but after i had nose surgery a few years ago and an ongoing hip issue the struggle was overwhelming at times. at one point i decided to just run when i wanted, i put away the watch,and i only did races for fun with friends and after about a year of that i got my lust for pushing myself again.
Congrats Emily! Can’t wait to hear more about it, along with Casey’s Pig experience!
Just found your blog and have so enjoyed getting lost in your posts about running, cooking, pregnancy, parenting, marriage, etc! Congrats on your latest race, the first of many as a running-mama! Cheers!
Do you find it a contradiction, or at least a difficult balance, between the yoga mind-body mantra of “listen to your body” and the marathon mentality of push, push, push (or as one of your favorite bloggers MilePosts says, “I run this body”)?
Congrats Emily! You rock. :)
CONGRATULATIONS!!! It was a huge race weekend I’m so glad you did it! I hope Casey had a good marathon too!
So proud of you :)
I ran it too…medal well earned
I’m all up for exercise and keeping fit, but those marathon schedules are full on and lately I’ve been reading about how excessive running ages, it’s also been scientifically proven…
