In two years, I went from running zero miles to seven half marathons and one full marathon. This year I thought I was going to slow down, until last month when three different people told me that I should try to qualify for the Boston Marathon. I laughed out loud each time! But those outside voices sparked the inner voice to say, "Hey, this is a sign, you should go for it." It will be challenging, but I love a good challenge. The verdict: I'm going to try to qualify for Boston this year at the Santa Rosa marathon. If I don't qualify this year, then I'll try next year and then following year. I'm sure by the time I hit 50 I'll complete the Boston Marathon! Wish me luck!
