I was lucky enough to get into the Chicago Marathon via the lottery. This made me so happy. I cannot wait to run it again and really race it. I won't be racing Boston, so this will be my only marathon race of the year. I have some goals I'd like to accomplish on October 13...
I found out my Boston Corral start. I'm in wave 2/corral 4.....but I am actually not going to start there. I'm running Boston for fun, with my running best friend/training partner. She is seeded in 2/7, so I am going to start back there with her. This race is all about the experience, and having a good time, and nothing about running a PR.
I took this race real seriously....I got 3 hours of sleep the night before, had no idea what my goal was, didn't really taper, and wore some outrageously gaudy sunglasses. The result? Not a PR, but a great time and a time that surprised me, especially on such a challenging course. I'll have the race report ready tomorrow hopefully.
There were some other great parts of the week, but they deal with things that I don't blog about, but brought many smiles and much laughter to my days.
