Whelp, that was not the race I hoped to run. After 16 miles of loving every second and feeling confident I was going to run in the mid to high 2:30s, I started to feel an old hamstring injury from 2015. I told myself it was in my mind, but 2.5 miles later I had trouble putting weight on it. It was an agonizing decision to drop shortly after 19 miles, knowing I’d have to walk the rest of the way in if I kept going.💔 I have dreamt of finishing a marathon for months now, and was so excited to run down Lamar and run under under the arch. I am so disappointed to not achieve that goal.

One of the things I’ve always loved about the marathon is that there are no guarantees, good or bad. I can’t believe I trained so hard to be derailed by something I haven’t felt in 2 years, but I also accept that sometimes life doesn’t go the way we hope. I’d be lying if I said this will be easy to brush off, because when you’ve really worked hard for something, it’s hard to let it go.

For now I need to rest, recover, and give it a few days. But I think I’ll be taking my running in a new direction. This hasn’t ruined marathoning for me because I’ve always respected what a difficult and beautiful beast it can be. But this certainly will hurt for a while.

Hands down the worst part was not being able to finish for all of you who have been so kind and supportive throughout my career and for my coaches and family who were here supporting me.

Thank you @chevronhoustonmarathon for your wonderful marathon, your wonderful people, and despite my sadness- a wonderful experience. What an incredible community you are. ❤️
