Thanks SO a lot for the nicest feedback the previous day!

We’re almost definitely in Budapest by means of now (I’m now not certain in regards to the time exchange, however we left Monday), and I’m so excited to look all of it. Lately will come with a host of miscellaneous issues from the marathon weekend:

*Races the place I’ve sufficient power to wave and smile at my youngsters are my favourite races.


*My ache cave face… I stored telling myself ache is a privilege in the ones ultimate miles. I used to be fortunate to be wholesome sufficient to invite my frame to run.

*Their custom is to get pie each StG Marathon morning. This spot is at mile 6.5 at the route, and it makes me so satisfied they do that.

*Let’s communicate sneakers! I totally imagine the Adidas Adizero Adios 3 is the easier shoe (for me). My frame feels higher in them, and the jump is unrivaled. So why did I put on the Vaporflys? One time, after I wore the Adizero, they tore up my heels. Blood. I used to be too afraid to possibility that taking place with them all the way through a marathon. I cherished the Vaporflys, they usually have been nice for the marathon, however they’re a 2d position for me however I will accept as true with them not to harm my toes.

*I wore a most sensible (with a inbuilt bra) that I don’t generally put on… An excessive amount of material on my chest makes me really feel claustrophobic all the way through sizzling races, so I went for one thing extra liberating and wow. It’s a game-changer for me. I stored dumping water on myself all the way through the race, after which feeling a breeze on my chest felt so just right and significantly cooled me down. Males are lucky they may be able to cross and not using a most sensible if they would like🤣

*Please don’t make the similar mistake I did on Saturday. I forgot to fasten the door at the porta-potty earlier than the race. I’m nonetheless embarrassed.

*I couldn’t open one among my gels all the way through the race!  I used to be ready to present it to Andrew to have him open it, however unfortunately, I couldn’t even take it as a result of not anything was once staying down.

*This route has my center.

*Does anyone take into accout again in 2018 after I raced with a Energy Bun? After each race since then, I am getting feedback or DMs asking why I don’t do this anymore, and I’m now not certain why…. My present hair period would best permit 10% of my hair to enter the facility bun this present day 🤣.  I’m very sorry this custom ended however I feel I’m sticking with shorter hair without end now.

*Day 7 of my cycle is my favourite time to run.

*I want I take into accout who advised me this, however ‘Flow then Combat’ completely describes the marathon. I felt like I used to be ready to try this on Saturday!

*I used to be 25 seconds slower on Saturday than in 2022 in this route.… a 6:24 moderate tempo for BOTH years, haha. What are the percentages? I didn’t have a look at my watch this 12 months but even so a look right here or there… it simply came about.

*I were given my liquids from my bottles (the volunteers did wonderful with them) and used the help stations to offload water on my head. It felt so just right.

*Regardless of how regularly I run the marathon, it is going to by no means prevent sudden me how regularly emotions exchange. Dangle onto that reminder when you find yourself hurting; issues can exchange anytime!


*I’m going to put on this most sensible regularly. The race winners and the grasp’s class get unfastened journeys to JAPAN!

*I advised Andrew that if I do have a time objective for the long run, it’s to hit each 2:4X time at StG🤣. 2:47, 2:48, 2:49 ✔️.

*Sun shades beginning at mile 18 are a necessity, now not a need, for this marathon.

*My again was once probably the most sore section after I awoke on Sunday morning! I used to be past satisfied to get up and feature simply soreness, now not an damage, as a result of we’ve got a large number of strolling and operating to do in Hungary (and I feel we can pop over to Vienna too)! My youngsters can’t wait to move and stick with grandma and grandpa whilst we’re away.

*On Sunday, we took the youngsters to look the leaves. I’m going to pass over them such a lot.
