One week from today twenty Oiselle ambassadors will step to the start line at the Boston Marathon. Each gal has trained for this memorable journey they are about to embark on and now it's our turn to follow and fan girl from start to finish. Meet the women gearing up for the Boston Marathon on April 21st!
I ran my very first marathon on my 25th birthday. My whole family traveled to Quebec City to cheer me on. Their rendition of “Happy Birthday” even pulled me up a rather large hill. Just as any other first time marathoner, my goal was to finish. My time was 4:36:55. It was a far cry from a BQ, but I did my best and hobbled proudly for days after. It is now seven years later and I am able to say that this year will be my first Boston Marathon. It is a dream come true for me to even be able to "toe the line" on April 21st . I'm pretty sure Boston 2014 will be the race I tell my grandchildren about someday.
