Hey everybody! :D I hope y’all had a great St. Patrick’s Day, and everyone who had a race this weekend did well and had a great time.
Well I have some pretty exciting news to tell you. I am going to make my marathon debut this year at the Cleveland Marathon on May 19th. I am super excited about this decision and can’t wait for May to get here!
I have always enjoyed the longer races and have built up my mileage for many years, to the point I now feel ready to start getting some marathon experience as it is my goal to one day make a career as a professional marathon runner. I am excited to run such a great race as the Cleveland Marathon and am looking forward to testing myself at this new distance and seeing what I can do. I have my family and friends’ full support in this and I fully believe that I am making the right choice in following what I truly want to do in running.
I am SOOO excited about my marathon debut that I can hardly put it into words. And the fact that the Cleveland Marathon is welcoming to me as I follow my goals and my dreams means a lot to me, and I would like to graciously thank them for being so supportive. I know that this is going to be a great experience for me in the start of my longer distance racing career. Thanks for the support and love everyone. ©
