Last year I ran the Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon. It was my first marathon and even though it hurt pretty bad, I decided to do it again! My goal this year was to qualify for Boston. This meant improving my time by over 15 minutes. I’ve been logging miles since January and on October 3rd I ran my second marathon. The weather was a perfect 45 degrees, my cheering section was in town and my training partner, and husband, was ready to set the pace. After a few great hours of running…success! I was able to finish in 3 hours 39 minutes 17 seconds. It was a great day to get out and set a new PR, and I barely realized the pain until the next day.
So this is a heads up for all of our clients in Boston – I hope to see you out at the 115th Boston Marathon on April 18, 2011. I’m happy to say that I was able to get registered yesterday!! The Boston Athletic Association had a record-breaking registration and filled the 25,000+ available slots in less than 8 hours!
As always, barring any injuries, I’ll be aiming for another great race. Until then I’ve got some more miles to put on my sneakers… Happy running.
