Me, 3 weeks after the Boston Marathon. A personal best of 3:28:21, 6000 places ahead of where I was seeded. I thought I’d train like crazy (which I mostly did), PR (which I did), and quit running for a while. Yeah, right.
New challenge: How many of my family and friends can I get to qualify for Boston 2014? Did a local Burns Park 5k the other day to get me back in the spirit, a race my parents dragged my brother to in his middle school pre-running days… Nothing like seeing folks awake early on a Sunday to enjoy the neighborhood, the springtime, and running. I suppose I can’t stop running for a while.
