This has been such a hard decision for me. I worked so hard to re-qualify and loved every minute of Boston in 2013. So why did I decide not to run it this year. I registered, paid and got in just fine. I know I could physically do it if I wanted to (even post surgery). But I don't want to taint the memory I have of Boston by running it again. It sounds weird but I had the most amazing time running it with family and friends and the thought of going out alone and running it alone doesn't sound appealing at all to me. So I have decided to just let this one go. I love everything about the Boston Marathon and I most likely will never run it again and I'm ok with that. I did it and loved it and then qualified again and now I am going to rest, recover and save my money instead of going out there in 6 weeks.
