Newport marathon – quick update!

Well, it was not the race I was expecting. I didn’t reach my goal of getting a PR. In fact, I didn’t even come close, but I wouldn’t trade this experience for any other any, and I am genuinely beyond grateful for each and every mile of this race. 

This was the toughest race I’ve ever done (Newport hills & head winds are no joke!), but I left my heart out on that course and discovered strength I didn’t know I had. I didn’t get a personal record, but I certainly had a personal best. And with that, this goes down as one of the best experiences of my life.

Final time: 4 hours 37 minutes 35 seconds 

I will have a full race recap up later this week as 1) I’m still digesting everything that went down during the race. and 2) I’m waiting for the race photos to come out to share with you all! 


Have a great week!!
