Race Report:


Last marathon I ran was in 2000 and planned on doing this after coming off IMWI last month. It’s been a closet goal to mine to do the Boston Marathon. I figured I’d roll the fitness from the IM into this marathon and see what happened. Little did I know that after the IM I would need a couple of weeks to recover and really wouldn’t be in the mood to train for a while. Training consisted of 2-3 runs a week with the longest being a 20 miler 2 weeks ago and about three 10 mile runs.

I needed a 3:10 to qualify and thought this was a huge long shot, but I’d give it a try. Felt good for the fist half then the wheels started to fall off for the second half. I realized I need more mileage under my belt to do a BQ time. Despite the fact that this run was magnitudes more painful than the IM run, I think I'll give it another try.
