You can do it! Of course, if you wait another year perhaps Angie and I will be crazy enough to join you in 2009. (Oh, and there's that pesky qualifying we'll have to do as well).:)
thanks! I was actually just planning on a spring qualifier to get me into boston 2009 ... but when my coach heard that his time from last fall is good for two years & he realized he could run it again in 08, we stepped up my schedule just a bit! so i'm back to doing a fall qualifier. here's the thing though - if i don't make the time for my age for 08, i might make the time needed for my age to get me into 09 ...(i hit the magic 40 in 08 & get 5 extra minutes on my time) so either way, there's a chance i'll be there both years. all just remains to be seen ... must work hard & hope for the best! thanks for reading & commenting!!
IF I try for this (and it's a REALLY big "if"), I think I found the perfect qualifying race. It's held on July 4 near Portland, OR and is totally flat. It also seems to be a rather small race, so I won't have to worry about winding my way through a lot of people. My qualifying time will be 4 hours (plus 59 seconds, of course!). Thing is, I haven't even run a whole marathon yet! (I will be doing so this September, but it's in France and features 22 wine tastings during the race, so I'll be taking it REAL slow).
omg. a WINE tasting marathon?? sign me up.
