Boston Bound: 2015!
Because I am having so much fun training for my first full marathon, I have decided to set my sights on the Boston Marathon in 2015. In order to run you must qualify in another marathon in 3 hours and 35 minutes (for my age group). After training for about 10 weeks while actually paying attention to my pacing, I have realized that I am certainly not going to surprise everyone with a first-timer BQ! I must very consciously train to increase my pace.
The following is a list of goal races and times. This will ultimately remain flexible and will change after each race, I’m sure of that.
