Going for it!!

So in June I ran the Utah Valley Half Marathon and loved it!!  I loved it ENOUGH to make a goal to do the full marathon next year AND qualify for Boston.  What I didn't realize is how REALLY attainable that goal was.  For whatever reason I thought the qualifying time for Boston was 3:30 but it turns out its 3:40!!  This pace in only about 20 seconds below my last half pace so with real hardcore training I could absolutely qualify for Boston next year!!  I'm SO SO SO excited!!

holy smokes you are fast! I ran a marathon and it took over 6 hours! I was in good shape too! I ran too many halfs in training that I never did a race for the half. You must have some long legs because no matter if I sprint I don't think it's possible! haha I knew when you ran your half that it was just a matter of time before the full called your name! Good luck!

HAHA Annie! I totally don't have long legs.. I'm not quite 5'2" but I figure hell.. if I can run a half in 1:56 untrained.. surely I could run a full in 3:40 with strenuous training RIGHT?
