just get me to beantown
i don't know if any of you have heard of it. it's this little race in this little city. no big deal. the boston marathon. april 15 2013. just a few runners that have ran a few miles to qualify to be there.
and i could be one of them.
(btw-what's with the horse/unicorn looking thing in this logo???)
the anticipation takes my breath away at times. in fact, i keep logging into the results of the martian marathon to make sure that was really me that ran 26.2 miles back in April.
did i truly run a boston qualifying time of 3 hours, 36 minutes and 31 seconds??
and i keep double checking the standards for the boston marathon to make sure they haven't changed. age 35-39...still 3 hours and 40 minutes. last time i did math 3 hours 36 minutes is less than 3 hours and 40 minutes, right?
so this week all the folks that have qualified 20 minutes, 10 minutes or 5 minutes faster (over achievers! LOL!) will put their request in.
and then i wait until the following week to apply.
and then i wait until Oct. 1st to know if i am accepted.
did i mention that i am extremely impatient? and a little neurotic?
i'll be waiting...
