  1. Not sure if I told you yet, but I am so proud of your hard work and race that got you a BOSTON QUALIFYING TIME!!!!!! You go, girl! Rest up, and watch for sore/tender spots as you regroup for IL.


  2. How are you? I am running the mercedes marathon this year and was doing some research and found your blog. Congrats on your bq last year and congrats to your husband too (I think your married but not sure). Anyway mercedes will be my 13th full and 10th state with a goal of doing all 50. I have also done a few ultras and just finished my first ironman. I also have three bqs under my belt with two of them coming within eight days of each other and a pr of 303. I noticed you train based off a program. My thoughts and advice is to not mix too much science with your training. Listen to your body instead of following a program. GOOD LUCK!
