When things were getting more crazy with hoopla on the Boston-front about 2 years ago, I decided that it might just be time to buckle-down and check off that dream on my to-do list. I trained and trained, and planned and planned.
The bottom line is that in the midst of some great training, I found out I was going to have baby #3...so my training had to 'slow' a teeny bit, and therefore my time (of course I still ran the marathon) was a bit too slow to get me into Boston (also, I would have had to run Boston 2 weeks after giving birth to the baby, so all-in-all not good!)
Then, this fall, as I was reading iRun magazine I read about a contest they had, in which the winners would get to go to Boston this spring!
...Guess who was chosen?!
Go to iRun.ca to read about it (and see a kind of not flattering pic of me--I had to send one in, and although we have thousands of photos on our computer, there are, like, 5 of me, and 4 are out of focus.).
I will also be blogging over on iRun, which is super exciting too!!
so, go now! Check out www.iRun.ca!
