Checked off an item on my bucket list after completing the Boston Marathon on Monday! ✔️ The weather was crazy with torrential downpour and heavy winds, and I don’t think I’ve ever been so cold (couldn’t feel my feet for the first 5k). Regardless I was determined to soak it all in and enjoy the experience! I’ve never had so much fun running and executed a race so well!
Major thanks to my training partners @shira.dal & @sole_purpose_ who have taught me everything I know about running, and without whom I would never have figured out the marathon. And to my travelling spectating crew (Sam & my family), the most exciting part of the race was seeing them at km 32!
I could not be more excited to be in Boston this weekend and running the Boston Marathon! Tomorrow I’ll be spending 42.2 kms having fun and celebrating the journey and hard work that got me to this start line! 📸: @sammyjayce #bostonmarathon#togetherforward
One year ago today, we took these very blurry and ridiculous photos after Sam proposed. Turns out it’s hard to get a good pic of two people, a dog and an engagement ring 🤷♀️ Now it’s 190 days until we tie the knot! 🤵👰 Thank you for being my crazy date night partner and biggest supporter 💕
Just over 10 months out from marrying this guy & I think our entire wedding is planned. On that note, if anyone needs spreadsheets with the info of every vendor in Vancouver, I’ve got it 🙈 #seriouslytho#shouldhavebeenaweddingplanner#OCD 📸: @sharaleeprangphotography
I think I was happier to see this little dude than he was to smell me post 42.2km! The marathon is a tough event but being able to see my family 3 times along the way made it so much better! Happy to check off marathon number 4 at the #chicagomarathon yesterday
Reflecting on my 27th year after my birthday yesterday. From getting engaged, buying my first home, becoming an aunt and achieving a big personal goal of qualifying for the Boston marathon, it was quite the year! Amongst those major events, I find myself becoming more aware of who I am, and what values are most important to me. I'm thankful for friends and family in my life that support me and those that took the time to wish me happy birthday ❤️ 📸: the amazing @sharaleeprangphotography who makes even my awkward laugh look pretty
Happy 28th Birthday to my wonderful fiancé @coffeebreak_creations! 🎉 For those of you that don't know Sam, he is kind, an extremely loyal friend and an all around good guy. He always makes me laugh, even when I'm annoyed with him and supports me to no end. Coco & I ❤️ you and we hope you have the best day! 📸: @sharaleeprangphotography #happybirthday
My heart is bursting for my new nephew, Memphis James Smalley, just shy of two weeks old! 💗 And for my beautiful older sister who has naturally stepped into her new role as a mom, you and Matt are already wonderful parents. Jackie and I are ready to duke it out for coolest aunt, although she will no doubt win! #sistersmakethebestoffriends#memphissmalley
I've been obsessed with @sharaleeprangphotography's photos since seeing an engagement shoot a few years ago, so it was a no brainer when deciding who I wanted as our wedding photographer. Last week we took engagement photos at Cleveland Dam and they turned out better than we could have imagined! Thank you Sharalee for wandering into the woods with us, making us feel comfortable and doing such a fantastic job capturing our love story.
