even if you miss, you will land among the stars. This is what one of my good friends told me a few days ago. I knew I was shooting for the moon in setting Boston as my goal. But training to qualify has been one of the best things I have ever done and I do not regret a single hill repeat. :-) Yes, I am disappointed that my race didn't go as I planned and hoped, but this is NOT the end of the road for me. I will be back. (Just not real soon.) I plan on running a few 5ks and 10ks to prove I have gained some speed and then maybe next year I will try again. (I also plan on implementing some Pilates, hint hint Windrunner!)
Suzie Petunia was kind enough to wait up for me once she realized this wasn't going to be her race either and it was awesome finishing a race with her. (And hopefully we will have cute pictures to show for our pain. ) Our time was around 4:03 a PR for me by a couple of minutes. I will give a more detailed report after I have some rest.
Last night the blog party was so much fun! I loved meeting all of you amazing women and can't wait to hear all of your reports. I hope your races went well and that you are satisfied with your training. I am bummed I didn't get to see many of you after the race but my knee was hurting and I could barely walk so we headed out. Please post your race experiences!
Thanks for all of your support in this journey. It is not over. :-)
