I am not so different from most runners. I dream of running Boston. It's especially strong for me as it is my hometown race.
I think I have posted my results here before, but if you don't want to go back to search for them (and I don't blame you), let me just say - I am a turtle. When I get below 10 minute miles I am proud. So - Boston seems like an impossible dream.
I really wonder, though...is it?
I'm getting older and faster. The standards for Boston are getting more rigorous but they also get slower as the age bands get higher. Will we meet someday?
I don't know. But I'd sure like to try.
