Look what came in the mail yesterday! The Boston Marathon knows who I am!!!
Last May I was at a 25k before the start and overheard a woman saying she was thinking about signing up for a marathon so she could crank out another BQ but hadn’t decided yet. Like it was no big deal for her. She passed me in the last three miles of that race and good for her, that’s really great that she’s so fast. I hope to someday be fast like that.
I didn’t start running for exercise until my mid-20s. My first 8 min mile was probably in my early 30s. It took a lot of work and focus to barely squeeze out a qualifying time.
I am so freaking excited!!
