You nailed it, Kara. As part of Oiselle’s #runlove campaign, the marathoning bird posted a so-true statement about running being the ultimate heartbreaker—just in time for some bittersweet Valentine’s Day vibes.

The photo is from the 2009 Boston Marathon, where Goucher finished third and says she ran a 20-mile run, then a hard 10K. She missed breaking the tape by nine seconds and clearly, judging by this photo and this caption, gave her love—running—her all that day. Talk about a motivational Valentine’s Day moment.
