Today’s episode of #medalmonday is brought to you by the letter S as in Support Squad
💚
Can you tell I spent the morning in kindergarten classrooms? 😆
All kidding aside, these people are amazing and I’m so grateful they spent 5 hours hanging around in the woods to see @jeremyjongsma and I for a total of 15 minutes •

Treat yo self 💪
Celebrated my 50k 3rd place with @lochnez_monstah eating sweet potato fries and drinking best tasting cookie dough peanut butter milkshake I’ve had at the @chicagodiner 😋
Let the week of relaxing, recovering and eating whatever I want commence •

That feeling of working so hard for something and then having it happen
💚
It took a village to get me here
So much love and gratitude for @jeremyjongsma  who ran the whole 50k with me. My race for ugly and he just said “What can I do to help you?” 💚
Then there was my crew chief, @jonnychucks . He had all my food and hydration needs on lockdown 🙌
And finally, the incredible cheer squad: @lochnez_monstah @j_quil_n @kylinfisher @amydel_12  Rounding the bend in the trails and hearing your cheers each loop gave me the kick I needed 🎉
I am on cloud nine 😁
Huge thanks to @ornerymule for putting on such an amazing race - can’t wait to be back!

Team Waffle all the way

Taking today super easy before my race tomorrow. Preparation is done, and I just have to show up and see what I can do. Going to spend the day with my feet up, relaxing, catching up on TV shows I didn’t have time to watch during training. Any recommendations? .

“Yes, I’ve qualified for the Boston Marathon. Yes, I’ve won age group awards and podium places. Yes I’ve run a 50-mile race. But the only times I’ve felt like a true warrior, is when I could look inside myself, admit I had a problem, and ask for help.” _____________
I am honored and thrilled to be featured by @healthwarrior for #warriorcrushwednesday as part of their Beauty Begins Within campaign: 
inspiring girls to be brave, bold and beautiful by focusing on INNER beauty 💚
Head over to their page to read my Warrior post and give their mission some love

It’s my favorite day of the year- Marathon Monday! 
I’m heading out to cheer on the @bostonmarathon runners but I woke up with a bad head cold 😩
Made this immune boosting mango smoothie to help:
- 1/2 c frozen mangos
- 2 clementines
- 1 large carrot
- 1/4 banana
- 3/4 c @almondbreeze almond milk
- 1 tsp each ginger, turmeric and cinnamon 
Hoping to kick this cold in the butt before my race next week
🤞🏻
Good luck today runners, see you at Mile 25.5! 💛💙🦄

There’s nothing quite like Boston on Marathon Monday
💙💛🦄💛💙
Every time I’ve run the @bostonmarathon the fans have gotten me through (how else would I look this happy on Heartbreak Hill?) I cannot wait to return the favor and cheer on runners this year, gaining inspiration and excitement for my 50k  next weekend 
Good luck runners - you are fast, you are fit, you are strong, you are the shit 💪

Don’t you just love #toasttuesday?
Real talk: I never would have taken the time to make a mango rose, but I’m in taper and have a ton of extra time on my hands. Plus maybe if I eat bright colors, spring will finally show up 🤣🤷🏻‍♀️ Deets:
Right side 👉🏻 @heredotco beet bean dip, #mangorose, @manitobaharvest hemp hearts
Left side 👉🏻 @onceagainnutbutter roasted almond butter, avocado, blackberries, salt n pepper
Both on homemade  bread

Which side should I eat first?

Last longish #longrun before my 50k race! 🎉
Fueled with homemade energy bites 💪🏃🏻‍♀️
I’ve been making these bites for athletes as pre-workout or during the workout fuel, and for friends looking for healthy convenient snacks
But I haven’t thought of a good name yet!
Long-run energy bites? Runner bites? Becca’s bites? 🤷🏻‍♀️
What do you suggest? .
