Completing the GSL this morning was my first step towards running Boston in 2011. I needed to demonstrate to myself that my body was strong enough to complete a half marathon in a good time.
My next step to Boston is the completion of a full marathon at any pace. I'm giving myself a full year to reach that step and hope to run the marathon during the summer or fall of 2007.
After I complete step 2, I will have demonstrated that my body is strong enough to do the 26.2 miles. Step 3 will be getting my time down to the qualifying time of 4 hours 45 minutes. I'm allowing 3 years to do that step. Step 4 will be qualifying for Boston, and step 5 will be running Boston.
