Non ducor, duco.
Was it all a dream?

I want to again thank everyone who posted their support in this thread. Your well-wishes and predictions of success were a great motivator.
I'm pleased to report that my training did pay the dividends that I hoped, and I ran a 3:14:37 at St. George this morning. That time qualifies me for Boston (with a 6 minute, 22 second cushion) and represents a new PR by exactly 15 minutes (which, you'll note is what I predicted in my original post ).
I've posted a race report over in the Racing Forum, but I didn't want to leave this thread without thanking everyone for their support.
