I’m in for Boston

Howdy friends.

I got this bad boy today:

Oh yeah. This is the second time I’ve registered. I qualified in 2009, but couldn’t run in 2010 because of an injury. I confess that I saved all my mail from the Boston Athletic Association because I was worried I would never re-qualify. And then when they tightened the standards, I was sure I wouldn’t.

But here we are. Qualified. Registered. Again.

This morning I was getting ready for work, and it kind of hit me. I did it. I really did it — on a tough course. It’s a fun feeling to set a goal and meet it.

We can’t really afford this trip. But Philip called me yesterday at work and said, “Sign up. It’s your dream. We’ll figure it out.”

So, I did.

And I’m sure we will.

And I’m going to Boston, baby.

Happy running.

    I’m so happy for you, but not really surprised at all. :) Just sad I wasn’t there to celebrate. We need to do that soon!
