Boston


I crossed that Boston Finish line 2 years ago.
Had the time of my life there, even with a terrible run (stomach bug). Even with the stomach issues, I had a great time. My qualifying time was a 3:27 and my Big Boston marathon time was a disappointing 4:15. I have some unfinished business there. I am hoping to qualify on May 2ND when I run the Flying Pig marathon. This is the first time I have really said this out loud, because I haven't wanted to jinx it. If I don't BQ in Cincy, then I will sometime this year. I know I have it in me again. I would just love to get it out of the way, so my other marathons can be a bit more enjoyable.
So Congrats and good luck to all running Heartbreak hill. Enjoy your experience.

So feeling ya on that! I hope everything goes perfectly for you at Flying Pig! I haven't decided if I will go in 2011, but if I do, we can have our revenge on Boston together!

Just don't forget to sign in early (I am sure you will qualify) because the spots are vanishing pretty fast after they open registration.
Keeping my fingers crossed.

Good luck! I'd really like to qualify for Boston, but being 5 months pregnant I'll have to wait for next May for a qualifying opportunity. I'm sure you'll do great May 2!

Hope you nail it! I will be so nostalgic next April when I'm not there. It was such a great experience. Have to wait until 2012! I don't doubt for a minute you'll qualify!! Good luck!
