Finally qualified for Boston (Read 175 times)

    Ran the race of my life (so far) today in the St. George Marathon.  3:07:21


    Just wanted to give a shout out to all the posters on this board that have provided such excellent knowledge and support over the past couple of years.  You were all correct when you repeatedly enforced that it is all about getting the weekly mileage up to the 60-70 MPW range.


    This was my 6th marathon and it was a 12 minute PR.


    Thanks again!
