Thanks Goodr for really confusing my husband. He sent me a text saying I had received a package from a flamingo named Carl?! Love my new running sunnies! 👓Love the Kara Goucher style too! #goodr#karagoucher#runner@goodr@karagoucher
Records from the District Court of the Third Judicial District of the Territory of Utah, County of Salt Lake 1884 when my 18-yr-old great great grandmother - the plaintiff- won a divorce from a monster who violently abused her. One page of details is enough because it only gets worse. It’s pretty cool to see that she spoke out and won way back then though he never paid a cent of child support. @breakingsilence_sos#findinglouisememoir#breakingsilence#goodr#useyourwords#utahhistory#utahstories
Today was my last official long run before race day! I had mixed feelings going into todays run. Mostly because my runs earlier in the week felt "harder" to me than I thought they should so today I decided to take pace out of the equation and run by feel. Goal 10 easy miles, 2 gmp effort, 2 miles faster.
To keep my mind off of the task at hand I was blessed to run my first 9.5 miles with dear friend @brookeb16 . She just ran her first marathon at Chicago a few weeks ago and she crushed it, with a big BQ to boot! I have two friends now who are both first time marathoners who BQ'd big time with their first marathons! Amazing right?
I loved hearing her race day story and hearing about how she single handedly crushed her fundraising goal and rose $20,000 for Team World Vision! Talk about inspiration! She loved her journey and cannot wait to run another marathon!
Loving the journey and living in the moment is what it is all about. So when it gets tough in New York I will think back to our run to help relax me on those hills and remember how blessed I am to even be running through the streets of New York City in November. Because regardless of the time I put up, I know that I'm going to give it all I have on race day and that's all you can ever ask for!

WINING MY WAY TO THE WEEKEND!!! 😃
Me thinks I should have got new shoes sooner 😳
Ran my fastest short run in a long time just cruising!! 4.11min/km was my best km. It was another case of try less/perform better 🙄 not sure why that’s happening as when I do try I mentally defeat myself.
These Hoka one one Arahi 2 are so supportive but super light (I have the flattest feet ever made)
New sunnies didn’t slip off like my old ones (I’m a sweater 😅) 😎
Winner winner chicken dinner.
Enjoy your weekend All 🙃
Who wore your sunnies in the sun today?! 🕶 Tons of @goodr colors back in stock at TRC today! Come by this weekend! ☀️

17 miles turned workout.😈
6 miles easy, 5 at tempo, 6 easy.
The mind game I played to make it seem easier:
Hey, 6 miles of play - go as slow as you want! 😊
Time to work for 5 miles! Go hard for 2.5 miles, turn around, and do it again.🏃🏻♀️
Done! 6 easy miles to finish. 😁
First two miles felt a little shaky from coffee jitters which is a little unusual for me. After that, I settled into any easy warmup, then it was go time! I didn’t stress (for once during a tempo 🤪) and hit every pace with time to spare. 5 miles flew by then it was time to finish the final 6. Cool down war harder than expected but I did hobble it through to the end.
What kind games do you guys play to make run easier? 👹
Wow! I am WAY out of shape. Injuries suck. Legs felt great, but cardio is shot. One should not take two months off, if one desires to maintain some semblance of fitness. I’m up fifteen pounds, out of breath, and oh yeah- have a half in like ten days. (And apparently I’m being attacked by a shadow being from the Other Side.) I have a 20 miler a month later, a marathon a month later, and three weeks after that head to Phoenix for some #loops at Across The Years 48 hour.
