Like we’ve always said before, another marathon is always on the horizon! While you may not have qualified for Boston, you’re accomplishmet of a 3:30ish marathon is HUGE! Like Buzz says, congratulations are still in order!!
I’m very sorry that things didn’t go as planned today, but what we’ve learned is that the marathon is a fickle mistress. Even if you do everything right, she still has ways to reject you. Take the next few weeks to lick your wounds and then let’s start making plans for “Rick’s Spring of Suffering.”
Congratulations! 3:30 ish is great time. Sorry you did not make your goal. But those folks at Boston are clueless if they don’t think you deserve to run their PRECIOUS marathon. OK maybe I think the Boston Athletic Association is a bunch of snobs because I have no chance at qualifying. But I’m sure you will.
In the mean time lets plan on doing the golf course loop a couple of times in January. You know Myrtle Beach is right around the corner….
