The GR marathon is October 18th. I'm going to shoot for a 3:45 if I can stay healthy. So far so good. I have been following you and RRG in your fitness quest. You are an inspiration, keep up the good work.
Currently I am working my way up from the back of the pack. Though I have run Ultras I have not run any road marathons as of yet. But, my guess is that if were to run a road marathon my goal would be to finish in less than 5 hours the 3:45 required for Boston might be a ways off.
Thank you so much for the birthday wishes and the encouraging and positive thoughts. I am very privilaged to have two girls that know their mother's drive, dedication and commitment to my goal. They are very understanding and supportive of the time I must put into this and spend away from them.
Thanks, Mary - just hung out today - it was my off day - how lucky for me :) ! Went to the movies w/Mom - Star Trek - very good, but a different storyline than from the original and even other series. (PS: Kirk doesn't get the girl - go figure).
