I've got a fever...
On your deathbed, you won't wish that you'd spent more time at the office. But you will wish that you'd spent more time running. Because if you had, you wouldn't be on your deathbed.
You'll ruin your knees!

Congratulations, Buckshot. I'm more impressed than words could convey.
I'm curious: how long did it take you? How many years, how many marathons?
Thanks for the info, Buckshot. What was your time in your first, if you don't mind me asking.
I was really curious after reading an article in this month's RW about who qualifies for Boston. It was kind of depressing, because it was clear that the vast majority qualify in the first few marathons they run. I don't think I have a serious shot until I hit 45 and the qualifyer time bounces up to 3:30. The current 3:15, or the 3:20 for 40 year olds, just seems unrealistic. Maybe not, we'll see.
But I think it'll be more like my 30th try instead of my 3rd.
So when are you running it? (I know that some qualifyers get you in for 2 years, but I don't know where the cutoffs are on that - I'm assuming you're doing '08?)
Pretty awesome. By the way - you need to change your signature line.
