My 2012 Boston Marathon Experience — 7 Comments

  1. Great post, thanks. Congrats on the finish!! I sit here reading, feeling the pre-race jitters, hearing the cheers and waiting until I can experience them from your side of the rope. I know i have many miles and shoes to burn through before I am there, I just keep reading, waiting and running. Glad I stumbled onto your blog. Again, thanks for sharing.

    • Joel, I appreciate your comments. I don’t know where you are in your training but it is a good idea to start with 5Ks and work your way up. 5Ks and 10Ks are a good way to build up your stamina and to test how well your training is going.
      I need to run 7:45 miles to qualify for Boston. I’ve been able to run sub 8s in 5Ks and 4 milers. So this year my goal is to run 5Ks at 7:45 and get my 10K to 8 min miles. If I can run a half marathon at 8 min miles by the end of the year I will feel like I have accomplished something. I was hoping to run Boston at a 9 min pace, but that would have been a PR and I don’t think many people set PRs last Monday.

  2. Fantastic post, so glad you made it round. With only 2 days until London nerves are kicking in but it’s reassuring to hear successful marathon missions!

    • Chip, you are probably done with your marathon by now and having a cold one or two. I hope it went well and you had good conditions. I’m looking forward to reading all about it.
