Dopey Update

I promised I would check in post marathon, so here I am. But first, I need to tell you something. I've been lying to you!

Remember back in my Dopey post last week (which I can't figure out how to link to on my phone), I said I had no time goal? Well, that was a lie. 

I did have a marathon time goal, but I was too scared to say it out loud. But in my head, I had a goal of 4:15. I ran a 4:16:11 last year in Montreal on crappy training and my training has been much better this year... but I'd also be coming off 3 races. So I didn't tell anyone. 

I'll be back with full recaps of everything, but I am going to spoil the marathon one for you right now. 

I ran a 4:13:21. Yes, 1 minute 39 seconds below my goal. And I also ran serious negative splits. 

So yea, that just happened. I am not sure I'll be able to walk tomorrow but for today I am beyond happy and proud to be sporting my Dopey medal! 

I hope you all had great weekends as well!
