The Perfect Storm

I ran my 10th marathon this morning. Today was the day it all mattered: training, weather, nutrition, hydration, and attitude. 


I’m thrilled to report that the stars aligned for me, and I had the race of my life. I could’ve done without the heavy drenching rain the last 1.2ish miles, but what you gonna do. 
As I sit here in my Hello Kitty Jammie pants, I can finally celebrate my 6 minute PR and YES, I QUALIFIED FOR BOSTON!!!! By 8 minutes!!!!!! No squeaker time for me this time, and I get redemption!!

Official time: 3:36:38 

Seriously, I left it all out on the course today, and I was finally able to do what I knew I could do all along. Exhale. 

Race report coming this week. Unfortunately for an interesting blog, but fortunately for me, I was in the most amazing zone during this race, so there’s not a whole big long story. But it’s a good story. 🙂
