Comments

  • Buzzfeeds before and after pictures are trashy

  • Ugh this is such an inspiration. I'm no where close to being able to run that far, even with a lot of training. I applaud her wow.

  • Geez 70 miles a week is a bit too much for a beginner

  • Omg this is the best video

  • I really have the urge to run right now but it’s almost 8 and I have nowhere to run. I just have a SUPER strong urge to run snsjdjskksnds

  • I loved the quote at the end. Life will throw a lot of marathons at you. So true...be patience and embrace the pain for long time

  • Much love for her !🏆💙

  • The trainer is hot...just saying

  • Me at 11 years old: 115 pounds Her: 129 pounds before even doing the running ._.

  • lol.. woman

  • I cried watching this!! Thank you!! Thank you for sharing this!! I needed to see this right now more than I can express!! Thank you!!!

  • She looks so retarted when running😂

  • That was so emotional, great job on her part.

  • 11:31 That's something straight out of a movie trailer

  • Why does BuzzFeed producers always cry?

  • Lol and I'm over here quaking in my boots cause I have to run 1 mile next week...

  • i bawled at the end!!! '

  • Ok but why am i sobbing!

  • I was crying for you!!!! Way to go!

  • as a runner crossing my that finish line making all ur mile splits is incredible

  • I got emotional stunning and outstanding job

  • Why do they always cry so much

  • My mile is 10 minutes and 13 seconds

  • Her: I’m loving running too. Me: Girl, I start dying 10 seconds later

  • ok ima go train for a marathon now

  • I was watching this video while running and I have no idea why I felt so immensely emotional when she talked about why she was doing it and when she crossed the finish line😩😭

  • Literally cried when she finished

  • Ugh, I think she shouldn't have lied. No amateur off the street starts off at a 7:56 / mile pace. She's very very fit already. And would have completed the marathon anyway. Do you have to train? yes? Is it hard work, you bet. But there is no such thing as a couch to marathon 10 week program. You need 6 months minimum to a year to prepare. Trust Buzz feed to give unrealistic expectations. People are going to watch this and be disheartened when they don't achieve that 10 week result.

  • a marathon ez

  • I can barely run 3 laps around the track at my school 😱😱

  • I love the cereal in the cup

  • She cute af

  • *GÖÖÖÖÖÖD*

  • This help me soooo much and yes I felt her the whole way. Thanks for the video. Ur story is why I'm working out today.😁😁

  • I cried... I wanna run now...

  • ‘Squeeze that butt squeeze that butt’ hahahaha

  • Outrunning daddy issues? You can’t.

  • loved her

  • she actually made me want to train

  • I’m sorry, but how are you crying over this? People are way too sensitive nowadays

  • 5:25 I’m getting some race anxiety watching this

  • Omg that coach is literally exactly like my coach: “don’t stop!! Come to me! You need to pick it up!” lol

  • This video inspired me, a 15 yr old w asthma, to run a half marathon. I watched this video a year ago, and next month I am running 21.1 km!!

  • anyone else sign up for a marathon after watching this? Lord help me

  • gosh this was such a beautiful end😍

  • anybody notice she progressively gets hotter as she gets closer to the marathon. Not just weight loss, like, she just starts glowing. Strange.

  • This probably would hit me more emotionally if I never saw her content on her own channel. ::shrugs::

  • I thought she was going to ask her trainer “how do you feel about being a guy”

  • this video made me cry. so powerful

  • Like, is there anything Michelle can´t do? She is so awesome:)

  • You are truly amazing, I have seen your challenges before, but for this one you really made me cry! I am training for a marathon and all you said was so true. What is my why?? I am!

  • This is very inspiring thank you very much

  • The thumb nail looks the same but she has darker skin on one of them

  • Super Women! Kudos, Quick question. I can avoid ice cream / cookies etc. Can i have couple of beers every alternate day during the training :-)

  • 😭😭😭

  • Omg u r just soooooo amaizing

  • we 👏 love 👏 a 👏 queen 👏

  • I run cross country at my school and basically the practices are get up at 5 o’clock in the morning and run two miles in under 16 to 18 ish minutes

  • I luv this! So Inspirational

  • Me: this is so easy! Runs 3 miles* I’m just gonna **wheeze** sit down..... AHHHHHH

  • She is gorgeous.

  • Omg must inspirational video ever! I even cried. I felt her struggle, I felt her strength. Omg everything. Amazing video. Thank you ❤️

  • My goal is to run a half marathon in 2 years...I've never run before

  • I was crying when you crossed the finish line. Thank you for letting us share this with you.

  • Okay now I want him to train me He seemed so motivating

  • This video is def worth the watch

  • This video inspired me to run a half marathon, I am somewhat fit but haven't done a lot of running, when i saw that she did a half marathon in 1h 37mn i thought i would br able to, but i finished in 1h 43mn, it's true that my half marathon had a lot of hills and sharp turns but, 1h 37mn is really good, she might be a novice runner but she was already really fit and had already really good endurance... I am happy this video inspired me, but this could be dangerous making people believe they can do this as a new runner

  • This is so cool!!! Would love to do something like this one day!

  • I do a 10 k in 50 minutes Iam 13

  • So inspirational

  • yeahhhhh I want to do this

  • I'm 11 and started cross country this year and run 6 to 8 miles a week

  • this video is so great

  • This has given me a whole new look at things

  • Yay!!! Running is BRILLIANT!! I run four times a week and I LOVE it!!

  • Did she do the Boston Marathon

  • Aww Keep the hope alive

  • I cried a little. Idk why.

  • Michelle is such a beautiful soul

  • PART 2!!!!!!

  • congrats

  • I wanted to marathon but I have asthma so.. 😔

  • You are amazing!! I could never do this!!! 🤗🤗🤗

  • *when I was late for class*

  • I am 10 and i run 11k everyday day somehow i still look like a pig...

  • One time I accidentally ran 4 miles in like 10 minutes.. I was listening to music and I kept a really good tempo and I just ran. When I got to the end of the trail, I wasn't even out of breath. 😂

  • (tears up)is the screen fogging up or are my eyes, I can't tell...

  • you cute

  • why the heck is this emotional and why is she crying wtf

  • this is really wholesome

  • Great video! I think running is one of the most personal and intimate thing a person can ever due. It’s about preparation, training and most important heart.

  • Damn I actually didn’t think I’d tear up

  • 8:46 stfu

  • so you turned more brown

  • Buzzfeed Day 1: "pushing it to the max" Me day 1: "running after a 6 month break, starts running really slow and easy, instant feeling that shin splint coming back" 😐

  • I laughed, I cried... I’m going through a lot right now and want to start running. Super proud of you.

  • I laughed, I cried... I’m going through a lot right now and want to start running. Super proud of you.

  • i used to adore running then i had an accident that caused me not to run as fast i got lazy and developed asthma ... and now it's hard to get up to try again u.u

  • This was so inspiring i wanna run a marathon to

  • Shes Crying for a bike WTF!
