So I’ll admit that I was a certified creeper today. I woke up early just to track the live coverage of the Boston Marathon. The elite women started promptly at 9:32 this morning and I was rooting for Kara Goucher the entire time. In the men’s field I had my game face on for the ever charming Ryan Hall. Both of these fabulous Americans took a top 5 finish and both set new PRs. Love them! So with all this Boston stalking, it just makes me want to do a full marathon ten times more! Although the qualifying time for my age group just to get into Boston would be 3:40 (seemingly impossible), nothing is stopping me from doing any other marathon!
I may never qualify for Boston, but a girl can dream. All this swagger just gets me more excited and makes me really hopefull that I can do a full sometime soon. We’ll see where this summer’s training takes us, but until then I can live vicariously through all those 26,000 runners today who survived Heartbreak Hill. Jealous, to say the least.
