  • Well thats what I call girl power

  • It look so hard what she doing hard exercise

  • thats a true warrior right there.....awesome

  • Bro, She was the one to choose the challenge. I'm just saying that Buzzfeed is trying to overdramatize the situation. What did she win? What amount of pressure was put on her to do this? None other than put on herself. I think its kind of cliché to have her cry about running. Also, stop assuming that I've done nothing in my life. It's nothing personal against her like you are making this against me.

  • I teared up because I started running for the same reason your doing a marathon. I will do one, one day! The most lone I have run is a mile. I got a lot of training to do.

  • she is so inspirational

  • before looks better

  • I cry every time I watch this

  • She’s acting like nobody else runs marathons. Notice nobody else is crying. This isn’t a big deal

    • Nobody else began their training only ten weeks in advance. If your life is this sad to feel the need to try and put down such an amazing and inspirational young woman, then you clearly have not made any type of accomplishment that you've actually felt proud of, unlike her. Stop moping on the internet and go out and do something worthwhile.

  • im so proud of her and i don't even know her ahh im just so freaking happy!!!

  • I watch this video for motivation :)

  • This made me cry so hard!!!! So good congratulations!

  • I'm so happy you made this video♡ I've been training to run a 5k and this is such an inspiration! Thank you for giving me the strength to keep going.

  • Dont cry Don't cry Don't cry Don't cry Don't cry Don't cry... I cried when she finished

  • My mile time has been real bad lately at school and so I’ve been really disappointed in myself but watching this gave me total inspiration

  • This made me cry watching you

  • Michelle is so sweet!!! She’s so real and so inspirational 😭🖤

  • So Inspiring❤️

  • proud of you

  • This is motivation

  • This is so cool

  • This was very emotional she’s is such an inspiration

  • I want to start running, especially after watching this!! She was such an inspiration, and her coach was so motivating!! I loved when she crossed the finish line- that must be an incredible feeling!! I was crying for her!! It was so amazing!! 🥳🏅🏃🏻‍♀️

  • She was a competitive cyclist. She's mentioned this before. She's not new to exercise. She literally competed in cycling events so it's no surprise she did well with running.

  • The trainer Looks like Shane Dawson

  • How are y’all crying? It’s a US-tv video 😂

  • When i lose motivation, somehow i always find myself watching this video. Thank you michelle

  • I am crying right now. Well done you achieved your goal. So talented 🌸

  • americans not using the metric system is so annoying lmao

  • Nobody cares about your bikes

  • A 3:30 marathon after training for 10 weeks from NOTHING? that's incredible.

  • Aww poor girl crying on US-tv, if you were a man you couldn’t do that or you’d just get laughed at with no sympathy

  • why did this make me cry

  • RUN FOREST RUNNNNN

  • I am 11 and I wear a 8

  • I've watched this before but watching it again I cried through the whole thing. I'm not 100% sure why. But you are such a champ! I love what you do and the dedication you put into everything! You are such a champ!

  • I'm proud of you

  • incredible progress!! *-* Besides 6 days of running, did you do some weight-liftig? And what diet have you been on? You did a great job, i cried when you crossed the finish line!

  • Omg Like this is Making me want to run a marathon

  • This video makes me so proud. Being a runner myself, having gone through some of the same struggles. This is dedication to the max. So proud of Michelle and her journey. Definitely inspiring for my next marathon come this fall. Chicago 19

  • Im BALLING!!! 😭

  • I run cross country for my school. The races are usually 3 miles and for practice we would run 12 miles a day for 6 days then race on a Saturday it was painful. It was menatlly and physically painful but I got over it and accomplished the season on JV team when I was the very last member of C team.

  • Omg I cried at the end

  • She had hard moments through this but in the end she was strong, she was good and she didn’t loose a smile I think that is what it is like in the end. Thank you! 💜💜💜

  • So proud of you Michelle... my inspiration❤

  • This inspired me. I’m really into playing basketball but I don’t think I’m good enough. The people on my team can be jerks. But you pushed past the negativity and and the pain. I’m gonna train harder than I did before and I’m gonna play better. Thank you. I really needed to see this
