I'm probably most excited about the prestige of the race and being part of such a special weekend, especially after last year’s tragedy. Very early on in my training, I was so focused on ME and my goals and my aspirations for a huge PR. As the weeks and workouts ticked by, I realized that the race isn’t about me this year. Sure—I’d totally love to hit my goal time and have the race of my life, and my training has been right on course for that, which is super exciting. But more importantly, I want to enjoy the race and enjoy the fact that I’m running my first Boston Marathon, which is something I never imagined myself doing.
