No secrets — just hard work & some mad, mad desire.
x4 Marathoner, workin' to BQ 🦄
Repetitio mater studiorum est so spin it again
NYC Marathon up next

http://bit.ly/lessonswhenyoutry

Woke up. Ate. Rolled out. Packed up. Headed out for 15 miles of sunshine. Gotta spin it again tomorrow. No mountain top experiences, just miles on miles. Now — stretch and relax. The reality of the dream is a daily grind. If it was easy, it wouldn’t mean anything. It’s worth it because it costs everything.

I can do anything as long as you’ll meet me at the finish line.

So far I’ve logged ~700 miles this year. I’m inclined to think no one spends that kinda time pounding pavement unless they’re running away from or towards something. For me it depends on the day, but today it was the latter. ❤️

This was my last race before the #hutrunhut 100 mi fun run in CO and then... @nycmarathon 👊🏻💫😃

Contemplation Sunday: I am an American of Mexican and Irish descent. I primarily identify as a Mexican because my Mother always emphasizes the importance of our Mexican heritage - celebrating Mexican holidays, culture and music. I even had a Quinceanera when I turned 15, and yes, it was bigger than my wedding.
.
.
My Mom tells me that back when my Grandparents were born; it cost 5 cents to cross the border so people would often go back and forth. They’d have their babies in the US and then go back to Mexico so that they could have US citizenship. They helped make this country great because they were a part of its fabric like so many immigrants before them.
.
.
My Grandmother went back to Mexico often, but my Grandfather’s adopted parents didn’t want him to have a Mexican accent, so they kept him in the States and never let him speak Spanish to them. It wasn’t until he met my Grandmother that he spoke Spanish much more.
.
.
I’ve always been taught to be proud to have Mexican blood running through my veins. I’m thankful to the ones that sacrificed, leaving their homes, immigrating to the US to provide all of us with a better life. My ridiculously loud cackle, undying love of Freida Kahlo, appreciation for mariachi music, fascination with magical realism, ability to run longer distances — I attribute to my Mexican roots. Why? I just do. It’s how I feel.
.
.
Mexicans are a kind, loving, hard-working people - living in a country of turmoil and seeking a better life - seeking refuge from violence. I understand the situation is complicated. I understand there are things to consider but yes, families do belong together.
.
.
I don’t want to berate those that think differently than us. I don’t want to make fun of them or put them down. I don’t want to counter hateful words with more hate. The way we are ill-treating all beings on this earth has to stop. One place to start is by reuniting these families. 🇲🇽

I used to hate these stems and I don’t use that word lightly. I judged them based on their looks and now I’m just grateful for all the places we go. Today was 13 miles with a last three mile push at Heartbreak Hill. 💦 .
