knee pain · moving forward · Novo Renew · real life adventures · running


My #tbt goes back to 2013 when I crushed my goals for my second marathon. My first marathon was in 2012 and my knee gave up at mile 17 but I didn’t quit…I finished in 5:23. One year later and a lot of determination landed me with my current marathon PR of 4:25, and I even negative split the race meaning I ran the second half faster than the first half. It was one of my proudest moments and this picture captures the sheer happiness running brings to my life. (And I still wear that exact same visor…LOL! I’m surprised it hasn’t fallen apart!)


Thanks to Novo Renew I have hopes that one day I just may run another full marathon!!! Check HERE to learn more and use my code Michelle25 at check out to save.

Have you ever ran a full marathon? Do you have aching/sore joints and muscles? Remember, these supplements aren’t just for runners!!!

  1. That is awesome! Way to go!! I have run some marathons – every one is different. Different days, different weather, different aches, different pains – I ran one with plantar fasciitis and an aching heel spur. Same thing – mile 17 I was hobbling, but finished. I have a couple of races ahead – hopefully they will be good runs like yours!

  2. I have that visor, too, and love it! Congrats, even if it’s a TBT, to your amazing time improvement from your first to second marathon. To answer your question, I’ve run 40 marathons, but I’m currently retired from running that distance.

    1. Wow!!! 40 marathons!!! Way to go!!! I’ve found it’s easier on the body to stick to the 13.1 distance and shorter. And to be honest I enjoy being able to have my weekends again after taking time off of running fulls.
