Instead of chocolate candy, I got my fix with this
As I set off on an 11 miler with my sister this morning. It was awesome. It’s almost spooky how awesome it was.

This was one of the best long runs I’ve ever had. And I credit my sister for being an awesome motivator and coach.
Brooke, my sis, recently found out that she can’t run the Philly marathon she’d been training for due to a knee injury. She is devastated. She is still going to come and cheer me on during my half, and today was one of her last long runs for a while. She is my running inspiration and I know that she will be back out there as soon as she can be. Love you Brooke!
I’m off to take a shower and spend some more time with the fam before I head back to Philly. Have a wonderful day everyone!
