After 3 years of hard work and 5 Marathons I have finally gotten into the Boston Marathon!
In November of 2008 I ran my first race (NYCM) after starting to run that summer. I missed Boston by 5 minutes, my qualifying time being 3:10. In 2010 I set out to attain a Boston entry and finally got my times up to par after a few near missed that really got me down.
It’s amazing what a little hard work, pain and dedication can do.
