well, i finished! the course was really brutal for the middle portion and that really affected my ability to stay on pace and then my ability to drop the pace at the end. but i’m VERY happy with a boston qualifying time of 3:15:13. over the moon happy. thanks to everyone that cheered, supported and stopped by to take part in this whole deal!
oh, and looky at what i just got in my inbox:
