18 mile rebound run

Today I braved 18 miles in what started with very wet, snowy conditions. I was nervous since I have had 0 energy this week as I've slowly been recovering from the flu. But I decided to just go a little slower so I could get my miles in. Surprisingly (slow as I was) I was able to complete the run and feel pretty good about it. Luckily the last 5 miles of my run the sun came out and I enjoyed seeing the beautiful snow covered mountains and breathe in the fresh (inversion free) air.
Onto Boston news: They've made changes for the race. This is a brief summary of the email I received from the BAA.
The Boston Athletic Association (B.A.A.) announced last week a change in its registration process for the Boston Marathon, allowing the fastest qualifiers to enter the earliest and with a rolling admission system while also offering all eligible runners an increased registration period.
In addition, the qualifying times will be tightened by five minutes in all age groups in both genders for the 2013 race.
I'm just glad I got in for this year!


  1. Woo hoo! I am SO glad you got in as well. And 18 miles? I'm exhausted just looking at that number. You are amazing!

  2. You need to post again, I haven't checked this blog in a long time, and I see you are behind on your most recent 20 milers update. Now you only have about 2 weeks to are going to do awesome! Such a great opportunity and I hope you do great. I am so proud of you and will be rooting for you. I am claiming mile 21 this time because that is how old I was when I had you. Think of me on that mile and remember how much I love you and how proud I am of you for the wonderful daughter and friend you are to me and for the wonderful wife, mother and sister you are too.
