It is hard to believe that a week from Monday is another Boston Marathon… Looks like I will be unproductive at the office, while watching on Universalsports.com… I don’t think I will ever qualify to run Boston, with the new qualifying standards, so I like to pretend I am participating while watching on the internet haha…
I remain in the 3.10 bracket for yet another 4 years! Even if I lucked out and hit the 3.10, I likely still wouldn’t qualify unless I could run a 3.00 or 2.55… The closest I have come to a 3.10 is 3.28… It is obtainable, but to be honest… I would rather enjoy running then putting the pressure and stress on a qualifying attempt.
This season, until Sept I believe, is the last possible time I could qualify within the old standards. 2011 still offers a 5 minute buffer, being 35 when I would run, would allow me to qualify with a 3.15. I would only have to better my time by 13 minutes… I still wont attempt it..
I completed my runs as scheduled yesterday… Just a really easy 5 miles tonight, 18 miles tomorrow morning, then a weekend without worrying about having to do a long run on Sunday 🙂
