I did it, y'all!!!
I qualifed for the Boston marathon! My time was 3:41 (previous personal best was 3:50) and I needed a 3:45!!!
A day and a half after flying home from a business trip to Germany, on a morning which was rainy, windy, and cold, I qualified!
If you need to get a hold of me I shall be on cloud 9 for awhile.
Big thanks to the husband who, notwithstanding his personal loathing of running in general and aversion to being outside on cold, rainy days, he met me at mile 23 and ran with me to the finish. (awwwww). Thanks to my brother and sister in law, too, who diverted their normal travel plans to come stand in the rain and cheer me on through miles 3 and 13. Thanks to the 13-year-old who could have stayed home with his grandparents but came to watch his mom. sniff sniff.
funny blog today, huh? more tomorrow on the funny parts of the marathon....
