Boston Qualifier?

I missed qualifying for Boston by 21 minutes.

Oh, and I missed it by not being a women.

That is over 80 years old.


Mile 1238, Chandler, AZ - I got a short run in before dinner. 2.4 miles at a 11:06 pace. I just wanted to make sure every felt good. Feet felt good. I had a small blister, but it's healing. Knees felt good. Legs felt good.

I followed it up with some light dumbbell lifting while I watched Biggest Loser. Tomorrow I'll get a good run in and then softball winter season starts on Thursday. It actually started last week, but I didn't want to play before the marathon.

That is nothing that a surgery and a fake id can't take care of.

LMAO! Well, there's always next year.

Ditto to LMAO! See, there’s always a bright side to everything. Just think of all those hot 80 year old guys you’ll be attracting!

You're hilarious! You should see how long it took me just to do a 5K last night. And I'm not over 80 either!

Too funny! I figure at some point age and getting a little faster will eventually catch up to each other! It COULD happen!

Lori said...

Oh to be female and 80... I'll be praying your wishes come true! ;)

So you lost my check? ;) No worries, I'll get a new one in the mail!

That settles it ~ when I am 80, I'm running the Boston marathon.

YOU ROCK Pat!

Agree with everyone else, that was too funny. Thanks for the tip about adding a blogroll as a linked page. I'll have to work on that. Wish I'd thought of it when I only read three or four blogs.
