Cape Cod Marathon
This past Sunday I ran my 10th marathon for run2buildschools! I was so overwhelmed with emotions…I broke down in tears thinking about what we have accomplished in such a short amount of time. In less than two years, I ran 10 marathons and raised more than $99,000 for kids and schools. In 5 days, run2buildschools team is going to Nepal for the groundbreaking ceremony. I am so grateful to everyone who has helped me along the way. This journey wouldn’t be possible without your support, love and donations. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. ❤
Below is me at the end of the race, right after I got my medal. The tears poured out of me. I was shaking and quite emotional.
The marathon was in Falmouth, a cute coastal town in Cape Cod, Massachusetts. The route was really tough, lots of up and down hills. It was definitely one of the hardest marathons I’ve ever run. I also struggled with plantar fasciitis and a bleeding nose again. 😦 But I finished!!! And that is the most important thing to me. I always find it so hard to quit. I’d rather suffer than quit.
This is the elevation map of the marathon.
Dortmund baby bear, woke me up at 4am on Sunday, to remind me that I had to run my 10th marathon for kids and schools.
Anybody wants to take on the challenge? 194 marathons?!! Haha, AMAZING!
Running along the Atlantic Ocean.
The beautiful, Nobska Lighthouse, stands at the town’s southern tip.
Sweet lady singing for us! So kind and touching. ❤
This was so beautiful! Live orchestra around mile 20. ❤
First I cried, good tears! Emotions pouring out.
Then I smiled!!! ❤
Three hours after the marathon I got on the bus back to NY; such a long ride back home. While waiting for the bus, I made a new sweet friend, Shellyann. She ran Cape Cod marathon as well and it was her 70th marathon!!! Incredible. Gooo Shellyan! ❤
