I ran under a 8:00 minute pace for the first time in a while and it felt great. After reading and following the Boston Marathon, I looked up what I needed to qualify. 3 hours, 20 minutes, which is a 7:38 pace. Wow! Amazing how my outlook changes on things, at first I was like Boston is not a big deal, blah, blah….. But how the tides have turned, to qualify and run Boston would be an amazing experience. But to qualify would a huge challenge, who knows how many marathons it would take for me to qualify as well. Something to put on the back burner for now.
So anyways I decided match my BQ time on this run, didn’t achieve the exact pace, but felt good to run fast. I have to remember to keep pushing myself as a runner.
