Here’s lookin’ at Boston…

…April, 2014!

Who knows if I’ll actually get in, but all that matters right now is that I know I ran this:

It wasn’t the perfect day, or the time I initially had my sights on. But… it’s mine, and it was ultimately an outcome I wanted (get. to. Boston!). More to come soon, once my toes calm down and my hips aren’t screaming. Like, whoa.

Thank you for the congrats – for following along and supporting every mile. This community kicks ass!

  1. Yes yes yes! The first thing I thought when I woke up this morning was “OMG I HAVE TO CHECK HEATHER’S MCM PROGRESS!” So, I did. And you had just finished! I’m signed up for Napa in March, and my goal (written on the chalkboard in our kitchen) is 3:34:07 (but really 3:34:xx will do!). I’m looking forward to reading your recap – they always get me super excited to run!
