With the Boston Marathon running today, I decided to take a look back on my Boston Marathon race experience…
In October of 2008, I ran the Milwaukee Lakefront Marathon with the Iron Hippie by my side. We crossed the finish line in 3:39:46, qualifying me for the Boston Marathon by 1 minute & 13 seconds (at that time, I needed 3:40:59…this was before all of the new qualifying times and new registration process).
I decided I would wait to run the Boston Marathon in April of 2010. I had already signed up to run a few more marathons at the start of 2009…Rock ‘N Roll Arizona Marathon in January, Green Bay Marathon in May and Grandma’s Marathon in June. Holding off to run the Boston Marathon in 2010 would probably be the best option.
By the time the 2010 Boston Marathon rolled around, I had made the decision to run the race just to have fun. I was going to carry a camera, take lots of pictures and not worry about trying to finish within a specific time frame. I busted my tail to get to this race, and I was going to enjoy it!!
Here is a look at the Boston Marathon through my eyes on April 19, 2010…
