NYC Marathon Quick Recap (Stay Tuned For Full Recap!)

I  apologize – I have been totally MIA here since the marathon. I kept meaning to do a full recap post, but I have a lot of video footage to go through, so I have yet to do a full recap :) I will try to have it up next week, so stay tuned!

But I wanted to do a quick recap to go over some main points from the marathon (if anyone cares haha).

The main point I want to talk about is that this was my best marathon ever. I felt great. I have never felt so good. Although my time doesn’t reflect it (no PR and I’ll get into why in the next post), I felt amazing and look back on this marathon and wish I could run it again, solely because I had so much fun.

My nutrition and hydration were on point – thanks GenUCAN! I really don’t know what to say other than I haven’t felt this good in any long distance race, or finished feeling this good. Like I said, I’ll get into more details in the actual recap.

I think I just said “great” and “good” a million times but not sure how else to describe it :)


Thank you to everyone for your comments and tips throughout my training. I finished this training cycle feeling excited to continue running, as opposed to feeling like I’m done with running for a while. I’m considering signing up for NYC Half or a spring half, and getting back into real running next week.

I’ll have a real recap up next week. I hope everyone enjoys their Thanksgiving! Any good Black Friday deals I should know about?
