|Finish line at the UV marathon June 2012|
Last year I set the goal to train and qualify for the Boston Marathon. I had only done 1 marathon in 2009 before. I found a training program. Started this blog and made my goal a reality. In June of 2012 I ran the Utah Valley Marathon and the conditions were horrible - hot and a serious headwind the whole way. I missed qualifying by a couple of minutes and was heartbroken. Now I'm almost done training for my 4th marathon in a 16 month period. I know my body better than ever before and I know how hard to push and train. But man am I tired and ready for a break. No matter how tired I am right now I am not going to stop pushing hard and finish my training with a bang so I can race hard in a few weeks at St George - it's 36 days away!!!!
