I watched parts of the Boston Marathon today via live streaming from my desk. I thought Shalane might do it but I love her courage for going out so fast. I could not sustain their pace for even one mile but it inspires me to watch and dream of one day qualifying for Boston. I need to quality with a 3:45. Yikes. So I only need to shave off 45 minutes of my BEST marathon time. Today makes me really want to be there and suffer up those hills. I’m a Floridian so any hill is pure suffering to me. I have to seek out a parking garage to do my hill work. I’m turning the Big 4.0. this year and I really want to get my 40-year-old body to run another marathon. It takes a big time commitment but I know I can do it with right motivation (mojo). The secret is finding that motivation every day. Finding it when I’m tired, over worked, too hot, too cold, too excuse-laden etc. It’s there in those excuses I don’t listen to that I’ll find the 26.2 again. Who knows, maybe in 2016 my Boston Race Day Report will be based on first hand experience.
