A high percentage of marathon runners are thinking the same thing right now…”I want to qualify for the 2014 Boston Marathon.”  As a show of support for the victims, their families, the city of  Boston,  and the Marathon itself.

I know I’d like to, but that means I’d have to be running a marathon fairly soon at a  pace that is faster than I have done before.


Let me know who else is thinking about this too.

  1. I need to run 3:25 to qualify, but my PR is only 4:00. My goal is to run 3:45 in October. That last 20 minutes just seems impossible.
    I so want to run next year, just like everyone else. They will have to add to the normal number of runners, just this once.

    • Thanks Sarah! There are a lot of ways to show support…Cudos to you for seeking those out. You are encouraging others through your actions. Have a great day!

  2. My husband and I are thinking about that too. Now we want to qualify for Boston Marathon more than ever. 🙂

    Go for it! Goodluck! 🙂 I would love to read a future Boston Marathon recap from you. 🙂

    • Thanks Ja! I’m going to try. It would be a big jump to run at a 9 minute mile. Maybe this is the motivation I need to do so. Keep me posted on your progress too!
