An Ode to Marathon Training

The last 18 weeks have been quite a whirlwind! Marathon weekend is finally here and in 2 days, we will be hitting the streets of Chicago. In honor or the (literal) blood, sweat, and tears, B&B presents… 

“An Ode to Marathon Training”

Shout out to donuts. You motivate me to finish my workout, knowing I can replenish my glycogen stores.


Shout out to my old Garmin watch which threatened to auto save my runs when my water breaks were too long.


Shout out to the sports bra tan. I spent more hours crisping this racerback line on my back than getting to lay on my back and tan.


Shout out to my Massapequa HS swim cap that helped me swim like a mermaid on cross training days.


Shout out to my crappy French braids that keep my mermaid hair/blonde hair out of my sweaty face.


Shout out to post race beverages that fueled my rest days. Specifically Montauk Watermelons- run all the miles, drink all the beer.


Shout out to body Glide which lubed up these thighs for hundreds of miles all summer. Without it, I’d be dead on the side of the road.


See you at the finish line!

Xo, Louise
