Well, I made it back to Boston to try and earn some redemption from my race last year. For those of you who want to know how last year's race went, click here. The ultra-short version, I had my worst marathon ever, missed my goal time by 25 minutes, and was defeated by the beast of Boston.
But this year would be different. This year I would redeem myself…or would I?
The Grand Rapids Marathon was all smiles for me. What a great way to end my race season (almost!) and I am looking forward to an even better 2017!

After the race: tired, sore, and HUNGRY!
I know I'm going to have a lot to say about the race, so I want to write down the chronicles of what I go through before, during, and after the race. So here is the BEFORE.
I haven't been able to run for 3 weeks. It has sucked. The Boston Marathon is in 3 weeks. It is not good to take 3 weeks off from running 3 weeks before a marathon.
Skip to the Takeaways section if you just want a quick run-down of the goings on of this post. Otherwise, read on and enjoy!
Now that 2016 is upon us, it's time to reflect on what happened in 2015 that got me to where I am now.
Today is my dad's 55th birthday and because he's so cool, he decided to run a marathon! Since my race season is over, I got to spectate alongside mom and cheer him on as he has done for me so many times. I also joined him for the last 4.5 miles!
