Running the Boston Marathon has been an unbelievable experience for me. In 2009 I went to Boston with the dream of ending the drought of American victors. Although I fell 9 seconds short of that goal, it was an experience I will never forget. I headed back in 2011 with my 6 month old son, and Boston awarded me with a PR of 2:24:53. I returned again in 2013, a bit banged up and not as fit as I should have been, but had a great time running with the lead pack for about 22 miles.
Hey Peeps, happy Marathon Month! It's that time of year again for over analyzing our training, second guessing our coaches, testing our race gear in practice (you know you do it), energy bar wrappers all over our car, and the feeling of "will the race just get here already!"
