Nice job hammering that goal!
Nice job fighting through the injury stuff and time off to run a really strong race. You really ran a strong second half, which should bode really well for the HM coming up. Keep up the good work.

Great job. I'm glad you could come back from injury and do so well.

Congrats on your race and good luck with the upcoming half!
Just over a quarter mile from the finish, a runner who had already finished was standing along the course cheering us on. He told us the finish line was “just ahead.”
I can relate, lol. I don't count the finish line as 'just ahead' until I can actually see it. Love those spectators along the way who yell out "Almost there!" and you still have over a mile to go, lol. Their hearts are in the right place, though.
