The #medalmonday to end all Medal Mondays. This year was an absolute blast, and I couldnโ€™t imagine capping it off in a better place than under the lights on the Las Vegas Strip at night. Thank you to everyone who joined along for the ride, running with me, cheering from the sidelines, or showing love online. 17 half marathons, a 10K, a 5K, 28 medals, and a whole lot of love for Uncle Richโค๏ธ #run4rich #17halfsin2017 #17in17 #vegasstrong #stripatnight #instamedals #runstagram

Las Vegas Strip

Currently at a loss for words, so for now just a quick โ€œthank youโ€ to the family who flew out from New York to cheer me on for #17. And a special shoutout to Uncle Frank, who ran alongside me for 16.2 miles over the past two nights #run4rich #17halfsin2017 #17in17 #RnRLV #stripatnight #MISSIONACCOMPLISHED #vegasstrong

#tbt to January, October, and every month in-between. Sixteen races, five states, two countries. It started in Disney, but almost didnโ€™t. Some setbacks have tried to keep me from these starting lines, but nothing has strayed me from each finish line. Vegas, youโ€™re not ready for whatโ€™s coming your way on Sunday #run4rich #17halfsin2017 #17in17 #thefinale

Flight delays got me arriving home at 4:40am PST and still Iโ€™d do it all over again. You wish your cheer squad ran this deep #run4rich #family #bloodisthickerthanwater #tcsnycmarathon #tcsnycmarathon2017

There arenโ€™t many logical reasons to do a cross-country trip for 36 hours on the ground. But when this is the result...Iโ€™d gladly do it 52 weekends a year. Congratulations to the fam squad on another year well run, I love you the most ๐Ÿ˜˜โค๏ธ #run4rich #family #ARCURI #bloodisthickerthanwater #tcsnycmarathon #tcsnycmarathon2017

Look at this stuff. Isnโ€™t it neat? Wouldnโ€™t you think my collectionโ€™s complete? ๐Ÿ…#medalmonday feat. the Rock โ€˜nโ€™ Roll Series races that earned me this #CaliCombo bling: San Diego (6/11), San Jose (10/8), & Los Angeles (10/29) #17halfsin2017 #17in17 #heavymedal #instamedals

Flippinโ€™ your fins you donโ€™t get too far. Legs are required for jumping, dancing... (& running!). Two weeks ago I broke my toe in the least graceful way, and have been completely unable to train (or even walk, for the most part) since. Pretty damn proud of this finish for race #16 #17halfsin2017 #17in17 #RnRLA #RnRlosangeles #ariel #rundisney #happyhalloween #runstagram #instarunners

And since my two favorite humans were born in the same week, sending more birthday wishes today to my forever roomie and bestie. Iโ€™m glad we havenโ€™t gotten less weird since this pic was taken 7+ years ago. Hope youโ€™re ready for me to smother you with hugs next week ๐Ÿ˜˜โค๏ธ

Happy 21st (+6) birthday to my little Ilana Glazer. Hope someone smashes a cupcake in your face but โ€œnot the chocolate I eat the chocolate!โ€

Happy 30th Anniversary to the folks who taught me to eat dessert whenever I damn well please (photo taken at 10am, for reference). Love you! ๐Ÿ˜˜โค๏ธ

#medalmonday coming to you all the way from NorCal. The theme for race #15 was: โ€œIf you donโ€™t train, you canโ€™t complain!โ€ Time to kick my butt back into gear for the last two #17halfsin2017 #17in17 #sanjose #rocknrollSJ #rnrSJ #lesspeanutbuttercupsmoretraining

Mondays are always a little tougher after a too-short weekend home. So happy to witness your special day, congratulations @btait31 & @21bryzo2121! #taitfoundhermate #weddingseason #montauk #theend

Probably the best #medalmonday of all time! After completing races at #WaltDisneyWorld back in January, this weekend we took to the streets of #Disneyland to complete the #DisneylandDoubleDare Challenge (10K Saturday & half marathon Sunday) and earn our #CoastToCoast medals! #run4rich #17halfsin2017 #17in17 #cousins #ARCURI #family

Running outside of the States means operating on the metric system, with 21km worth of markers (& one in particular that outshines the rest) ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฆ#17halfsin2017 #run4rich #seawheeze #seawheeze2017 #vancouver #stanleypark #seawall #instarunners #runstagram

A perfectly timed mail arrival on this #medalmonday to mark the end of my summer racing hiatus: my #doublebeat #heavymedal for completing both #RnRSD and #RnRSEA in June! This weekend I'll take on the streets of Vancouver to kick off my last six half marathons of 2017. I'm baaaaaaack! ๐Ÿ™ƒ

Been calling this one "cousin Cat" since high school, so it's about time they made it official. Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Nobile! #fromnowonnobile #weddingseason
