Boston on my mind

Wherever you are in the running world, I am sure the Boston buzz has reached you! My first Boston after working for 3 years to get there and it is just over 4 weeks away! I am thrilled and as everyday that it gets closer I am savoring the anticipatory excitement. 

I ran into a friend at the Teeter (grocery store) and he asked when is Boston? Bubbingly with excitement, I replied just over 4 weeks! He than asked me if I was fit and ready? My reply "Well that is debatable. I will be able to get to the start line and I plan on crossing the finish line. What happens in between remains uncertain but whatever the day holds I plan on enjoying the fricking day to the fullest."

A lot can happen in 4 weeks! A lot can happen in 2 weeks! Two weeks ago I was still struggling to get out bed and now I am running better and better with each passing day. Today was the first run back where I thought just maybe I am not going to be run/walking Boston. I actually felt good running.

If things keep this trend I can only imagine how I will feel in 4 weeks. I am banking on the fitness that is in there from years of marathoning and miles I have put in the fall/winter to get me across that finish line. 

Keeping the dream alive!
