PGH Marathon Training: 5Ks and Cheer Squads and Social Teams OH MY

O.M.F.G.  It has been … something.  More on that later.  In the meantime, y’all.  THE PITTSBURGH MARATHON WEEKEND IS LESS THAN A WEEK AWAY!  This amazing fact deserves a full run down!  I literally cannot wait!

Here we are dominating 2014!

My severe plantar fasciitis has been on the mend.  It has been a long, hard, dry needling road.  The physical therapy for PF is excruciating.  So many hard stretches for the part of my body that just doesn’t want to stretch.  So much dry needling on my calves.  Heavy, burny strength conditioning.  Finally, I’m pain free!!  And cleared to run.

Weeks ago my physical therapist crushed my half and full marathon dreams. I’ve been holding my breath to participate in the 5K and this week, my new dreams have come true!  I’ve been running very small, very slow intervals on the treadmill and am gearing up to walk the PGH Marathon 5K!  I’ve never participated in the 5K during the marathon weekend and I could not be more excited!

I’m never excited to be in Pittsburgh!

Also for Pittsburgh I’ve volunteered for the social team!  I’ll be covering the start and finish line.  You’ll be getting about 1 million photos and videos from yours truly.  I am so thrilled to be able to give back to the Pittsburgh Marathon.  They have been so supportive and understanding as I’ve dealt with this injury.  I’m going to do a the very best LNRB job and I can’t wait to be back in 2018 — hopefully healthy and in fighting shape.

Ohana means family in Pittsburgh

In between my 5K walk and my fun social job, I’m going to be a very big evangelist for the best cheer spots on the marathon and half marathon course!  Stay tuned!

How is your training going?

    I am soooooo glad that your PF is easing up! I dealt with it twice and I know just what a pain in the foot it can be. Enjoy the 5k and have a blast on the social media team!!! 🙂
