I have qualified for the Boston Marathon! At my age, that means I had to run a marathon in 3:40:59 or faster. Even three years ago, this seemed like an unreachable goal. I figured I'd have to maintain my fitness and qualify in a few decades, or pay quite a bit of money to buy a charity entry.
Everything just went so perfectly on race day. The weather was gorgeous and I'd slept well the night before. I had a feeling it might be my day, and it was!
My next race is on Halloween...should be spooky!
