5.7 mile run, 7:40 pace/Thoughts of BQ’ing

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.

Olivia's first go at soccer. When you work right next door to a Crossfit gym, what else to do on break? Happy Easter! Spring running, goodbye winter gear. Just me and my girl. 7.1 mile barefoot run. Time: 103. Pace: 8.57. A little fishing with the boys. Can't stay inside forever on this cold, rainy spring day.
