I qualified for Boston! (Read 1141 times)

    I needed almost every second but I finally got my BQ in Philadelphia. The qualifier time for my age group is 3:30 (well really 3:30:59) and finished in 3:30:11. I put so much pressure on myself to qualify that it’s really a relief to finally achieve it.
