Registration for the Boston Marathon opened on Monday, September 14th for those who beat their qualifying time by 20 minutes or more. On Wednesday, September 18th I was able to submit my Ottawa Marathon time because I was 12 minutes under my qualifying time.
Running the Boston Marathon wasn`t something I ever thought about doing because I never thought I would run a marathon. I thought those people were crazy who did. HA! Well, I found I loved training for my marathon because of the regimented schedule. I had to run when my schedule said if I wanted to do my best. I also just loved learning more about me and what my body could do.
Well, it is time for me to dust off my marathon schedule because I just found out today that I got in to the Boston Marathon taking place on April 18, 2016. As soon as I read the email today at work I shouted out loud and got so excited. I even started to cry. That surprised me because I didn’t know how much I really wanted to run it until I got confirmation I was.
Here I come Boston!
P.S. I did check the Entrants database and my name is listed.
Have you run the Boston Marathon before?
