In a nutshell I had a ball in San Francisco. I met RBR and her posse', The Athena Diaries author, Calyx and Donna, and 19,000 of my closest friends at the race. It was a great trip.
I got my first post marathon run in tonight. 5 miles in the heat nice and easy. My legs feel tired but good, no pain so that's a plus.
I have to get rest up for the Parkersburg 1/2 marathon which is next weekend. Once again I will be running on those hill things again. This is my home town race so I have to have a good showing. There are some big hills on this course though so I don't know how I'll handle that. Oh well, I haven't been home in so long no one will remember me anyway!
My Boston qualifying program start as soon as I get back from Ohio. After San Francisco my hopes are not very high that I will get to 3:15 this year. I know I didn't train but 3:50 is a long way from 3:15! I'm not giving up on my goal but I am a little down about it. Maybe some hill training and speedwork will brighten my spirits and give me that Boston hope again!
Thanks for listening
Race report soon I promise to write it in the car tomorrow and post it from the hotel!!!!
