Overcoming a Bad Race - @LeahCville's Lessons Learned at the 2016 Chicago Marathon

I ran my 5th Chicago Marathon on Sunday, October 9th and it was my slowest in that city by about 13 seconds. Even though I didn't have a good clock time, my trip was so special because I traveled with a very good friend who was able to run a huge negative split and PR - go Nicole!

A Goal = 3:55:00 or under
B Goal = 3:59:59
C Goal = finish and still be excited to train for Boston 2017 w/ @malindaannhill

I've qualified three times for the Boston Marathon on this course, but due to a less than ideal training cycle this summer plus a September filled with a serious sickness, extreme stress, and frighteningly low mileage, I knew hitting my A or B goals would be a stretch. However, my coach encouraged me to try because I did have a decent time at the Women's Four Miler in early September.

My plan was to go out with the 4 hour pace group and try to run a negative split. The only time I've done that was in 2008 when I ran the 1st half of the National Marathon in 2:00 and 2nd half in 1:54. I was hoping I could pull that off again, but unfortunately I just didn't have the energy. Should I have started even slower so that I could have at least run a negative split even if my finish time might have been over 4;10? I'll probably obsess & regret that when the ruminating and race dissection phase starts!

The only good thing about this year's race is I didn't feel any serious pain like I did in 2011 when I ran my first Chicago Marathon. After finishing in 2011, I wrote a post about needing a medal for dropping out because I really should have stopped running that year. So even if I felt tired and could barely life my feet off the ground at times, nothing really hurt (except MY PRIDE!)

I started more slowly than I have ever in any marathon in the past 6-8 years, but I just got slower. Sometimes sh-t happens. When you have a bad race it makes you appreciate the good ones even more. Last year I hit my goal of under 3:55 by 4 secs (3:49:56 which got me into the 2017 Boston Marathon!) and I was happy for about one hour, then I started criticizing myself because I didn't run a negative split and I didn't run even faster. This is how my mind works. Even when I achieve something, I dissect it and tear it apart. So I guess it's a little comforting to feel badly about doing badly because that actually makes sense! :)

When I was getting my post-race massage in the Balboa Tent (that experience is worth every penny!), I decided I wasn't going to end Chicago on a disappointing note. Now that I'm a "legacy" I've got guaranteed entry into the 40th running of the Chicago Marathon in 2017 and I plan to be there for my 30th and final marathon. Yes, I mean it. I've been running marathons since 2007 and it seems fitting to end my marathon "career" 10 years later with my two favorite marathons - Boston with my twin sister in April and Chicago with 40,000+ fellow runners.

One final note: When I realized I wasn't going to run under 4 hours I saw a man pushing a running stroller. He had a memorial on his back for his wife who died of ALS in July 2016 and in the stroller was a framed photo of her. I couldn't hold back the tears when I saw that. It put my "failure" into perspective. I had submitted a motivational text for my friend Nicole before the race, "Each mile's a gift! Negative split!" and seeing this man persevere through this race without his wife reminded me that indeed each mile is a gift. I'm so grateful to have been able to run so many miles with so many people I care about and who are important to me. Thanks so much to my coach, Mark Lorenzoni, my twin sister, Malinda, and all my family and friends for supporting me all these years!

Random Notes:

Thrilled to see Joan Benoit Samuelson in the 15th floor lobby at the Hilton Chicago on Friday.. My coach told me to tell her he and Cynthia said hi next time I saw her, but alas that didn't happen. :(

Excited to see Deena Kastor sitting in the lobby of the Hilton on Saturday. (really should have had made a bingo card for celebrity runner sightings!)

Disappointed and annoyed at myself for not having a question prepared to ask Executive Race Director Carey Pinkowski at the Balboa Tent before the race. ACK!!!!!!! (also regretting not getting a photo of the huge platter of meat at Belly Up before Nicole and I devoured it on Friday!)

Ecstatic to get to shake hands with Florence Kiplagat the winner of the Chicago Marathon (and realized I also saw her at the hotel like 3 times the previous two days)

Happy that Rock City Skirts saw me on the course and took some pictures of me wearing the custom skirt they made per my request! :)

Loved the view from the ladies bathroom at the Signature Room. Wow!

Enjoyed the Wendella Original Architectural Tour the day before the race.

Overjoyed I caught a new Pokemon on the course!

Malinda is Running the 2017 Boston Marathon for Dana-Farber Cancer Institute (#RunDFMC)

Malinda & Leah (2013 BAA 5k)
On April 17, 2017, I will join hundreds of  Dana-Faber Marathon Challenge (DFMC) runners who will take to the streets to participate in the 121st Boston Marathon®. The DFMC team runs and raises funds with thousands of  adults and children affected by cancer in mind. From Hopkinton to Boston, we carry thoughts of thousands of adults and children with us every step of the way.

I'm grateful for the opportunity to run for Dana-Farber Cancer Institute because 100% of every dollar raised by the DFMC team supports the Claudia Adams Barr Program in Innovative Basic Cancer Research at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.

Check out this short video to see how funds raised through DFMC are fueling some of today's most promising basic cancer research.

My identical twin, Leah, finished her 1st Boston Marathon® in 2013. We were reunited moments before the tragedy and deeply affected by the pain so many families had to endure.

In the years following the tragedy, I was determined to qualify for the Boston Marathon® so that Leah and I could run together in memory of those who died and in honor of those who survived.

Since 2013, I've attempted but failed to qualify 11 times while continuing to raise awareness and funds for pediatric cancer research.

I am now more determined than ever to qualify during the 2017 Boston Marathon® while raising funds to support the Claudia Adams Barr Program in Innovative Basic Cancer Research at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.

I am grateful for the opportunity to be part of the DFMC team so that Leah and I can run together in memory of Michael, GG, Joe, Susan, Kyle and all those we know who have died from cancer.

Please join us in the fight to conquer cancer!

No donation is too small and 100% every $1 donated will help fund cancer research!

Together, we're headed toward the ultimate finish line: a world without cancer!

Thank you for your support!

Malinda's 12th Attempt to BQ at the 2016 Philadelphia Marathon

Leah and Malinda are identical twins and masters marathon moms.

Leah and Malinda deemed themselves "Twins Run In Our Family" so they could share their experiences running together while supporting causes they care about.

Since 2012, Leah and Malinda have raised $3,054 to support Alex's Lemonde Stand Foundation in memory of their grandmother, GG, and Leah's brother-in-law, Michael.

Leah, the faster 1/2 of @TwinsRun, has qualified for the Boston Marathon (BQ) 4 times and finished 3 Boston Marathons (2013, 2014 and 2015). Leah's application to run the 2017 Boston Marathon was just accepted on Monday, September 19!

Malinda, the slower 1/2 of @TwinsRun, has yet to BQ after 11 unsuccessful attempts:

1st attempt: 2013 Chicago Marathon (4:04:21)

2nd attempt: 2013 Philadelphia Marathon (4:04:40)

3rd attempt: 2014 Charlottesville Marathon (3:56:14)

4th attempt: 2014 Rivanna Greenbelt Marathon (4:23:56)

5th attempt: 2014 Philadelphia Marathon (3:47:42)

6th attempt: 2015 Rock 'n' Roll DC Marathon (3:54:58)

7th attempt: 2015 Charlottesville Marathon (4:19:12)

8th attempt: 2015 Rivanna Greenbelt Marathon (4:23:02)

9th attempt: 2015 Philadelphia Marathon (4:01:22)

10th attempt: 2016 Rock 'n' Roll DC Marathon (4:00:23)

11th attempt: 2016 Rivanna Greenbelt Marathon (4:00:49)

Malinda is training to succeed at her 12th attempt at the 2016 Philadelphia Marathon on Sunday, November 20.

Although Malinda has yet to reach her 2017 BQ goal (3:55), you can help her reach her fundraising goal to support Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation for Childhood Cancer!

No donation is too small - $2, $3, $4, $5 or more is greatly appreciated!

Text LEMONADE E1121983 to 85944 to donate $10 by phone.

Thanks for your support!

Sting & Peter Gabriel - Rock Paper Scissors Tour

Obligatory Concert Selfie
by @LeahCville

One Concert Photo Allowed
by @MalindaAnnHill

We were so very grateful for the opportunity to see Peter Gabriel & Sting together again since their music has been an important part of our lives and our running playlists. ;-)

We first saw Peter Gabriel and Sting perform together as part of the Human Rights Now! Tour in Philadelphia in 1988. Wow. That was a long time ago!

The show was absolutely amazing - the songs, musicians, back-up singers, lights and video.

We also appreciated the audience who made us feel relatively "young" since the majority of attendees appeared to be card carrying members of the AARP. ;-)

We hope to share more about our experiences before, during and after the show in the coming days. In the meantime, we wanted to share the set list and links to articles, reviews and videos.

Have you seen the show? Will you attend a future show? We'd love to hear about your experience! And, if you see any links we should add to our post, please share in the comments*.

2016 ODDyssey Half Marathon Costume Contest and Race Recaps

ODDyssey Half Marathon Costume Contest

3 of 140 (45-49)
54 of 1,419 (Female)
207 of 2,448 (Overall)

I'm the first to admit that I'm not the best at writing race recaps. As Joan Benoit Samuelson says, "every race tells a story" and I enjoy reading and sharing other runners' stories. I wish it was easy for me to tell my story but I'll try to share what I can. After suffering from severe and sudden shin splint type pain during my run on Thursday, I was seriously worried that I wouldn't be able to run at all on Sunday. Running is my stress relief and I just began marathon training so the thought of not being able to run for weeks was overwhelming. Fortunately, I decided to take it one day at a time and forced myself to rest (no more #RWRunStreak for me) and iced, iced, baby! ;-) Two days without running felt like 2 months since my shin still hurt while I walked and I feared the worst. When I woke up on Sunday morning, I taped my leg, put on my compression socks and hoped for the best. I was pleasantly surprised that I had no shin pain at all during the race. I was truly grateful for every step and enjoyed every mile (even that final hill!). Due to the high temperature, humidity and dew point, I knew that I had to race carefully. I tried my best to maintain marathon pace throughout the race and I was able to meet my goal - finishing in 1:54:57 (average pace 8:46). Since I just began marathon training (#Train2BQ) and I'm not a fan of summer racing, this was my last race until my 11th attempt to qualify for the Boston Marathon (BQ) at the Rivanna Greenbelt Marathon on Saturday, September 10.

Many thanks to all the volunteers, spectators, runners and walkers! I had an amazing time and hope to elaborate more on my recap in the coming days.

Fighting Childhood Cancer, One Mile At A Time! #Journey2aMillion #TwinsRunInOurFamily #RWCoverSearchContest


On March 17, 2012, my identical twin, Leah, and I joined Team Lemon to support Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation for Childhood Cancer in memory of Leah’s brother-in-law, Michael. On July 16, 2012 our grandmother, affectionately known as “GG,” died suddenly. Over the past four years we have raised awareness and nearly $3,000 for childhood cancer research in memory of Michael and GG. We've also shared our experiences running together to support Alex’s Lemonade and other causes we care about on our blog, "Twins Run in Our Family," Twitter, Instagram and Facebook. Much to our surprise, we've gained a following of runners, twins and/or parents of twins. We're often recognized at races when we wear our shirt that has our logo on the front and our tagline on the back: "If you're passing me, I'm Malinda. If I'm passing you, I'm Leah." Over the years, I've struggled with chronic illness and depression. Because of my experience, I'm truly grateful for every step and I'm determined to make my miles matter. I'd rather run in a charity race to raise awareness for a worthy cause than run a fast time. Sometimes, much to my surprise, I'm able to do both.

Comments from run215 Facebook Group:

This was my first race since my 5ks in high school cross country (10 years ago). After high school I gained a bit of weight and worked a desk job. I took advantage of the free donuts and celebratory pizzas one too many times. Anyway, March 2015 I finally decided to change myself. I started tracking my food and joined the gym. The first day I got on the treadmill I couldn't even run a minute! I was so out of shape and winded. Once I could finally run a mile, it was a slow one (for me). A year later here I am 53 lbs down and crushing 10 miles in the rain. I am very proud of my pace/time! Next year I plan on moving up a corral. The beginning was rough trying to get around people. I felt amazing Sunday. I stressed out thinking I couldn't do it or I would be really slow but I amazed myself and currently looking for a half to sign up for!

Alex and I ran our second tethered Broad St and beat our previous time by 2 minutes and change. Our time was 1:32:14. We've never had a rain race together and it caused a lot of anxiety for Alex the first mile. Overall though, great race with so many great spectators and volunteers in spite of the weather!

I had to transfer my bib this year :-( but I had a great time cheering on my husband, and everyone else I knew or just randomly yelled at! This was my first time actually seeing the elites during a race, which was cool. I started watching at Temple (I saw you! Can't miss the skirt!) and then hopped on the subway to get to mile 9 once I saw my honey. I made it with minutes to spare. All in all, spectating is fun but I can't wait to run it again!
