I will be running my 1st Boston and was ecstatic to have received my passport!!! To be honest, I had heard people talk about the passport and wasn’t sure exactly what it was. Well, I know now that it’s the golden ticket sort of speak to run Boston. You need it to get your bib!! My bib number is 8508!! I will be in corral 1 wave 2! I have a white bib which is good but not the red bib which includes your faster runners. I missed it by 48 seconds. Goal is to get that red bib for Boston 2017. Did you know that usually only 8 to 10% of females in Boston have red bibs? Definitely something to work for!!! I have only run 2 marathons ever in my life and Boston will be that 3rd!!!
I am not planning to race Boston so I have really maintained a solid training schedule. I have hard days No doubt but also days where I can see the change. This picture was after mile repeats that Dare I sayfelt easy at a 6:27 pace!!
Grab some popcorn because it’s going to be a long summer of working towards making the dream work. I have some big goals for the fall 2016!!
Last somewhat long run before Boston
