I went to the BAA website and entered my information. I used my 2010 St George Marathon time of 3:30:53 for qualification. The reply was that I could register for the 2012 Boston Marathon on September 12, 2011 at 10:00 a.m. (E.T.) in the first group of registrants. Thats ten days away, don't get caught sleeping!!!!!!

12 miles @ 9min pace mid-morning on the PRT. The run felt pretty good for just being two weeks post PCM. I'm feeling good and gettin' anxious about getting on to TOU and SGM.

Another successful day on the two lane black top! Today at the TOU was a special day for me. This was my 4th time to run TOU and my 41st marathon overall. And if that wasn't enough, this was my 7th marathon in 8 months. Thats 5 BQ's out of 7 marathons run this year!

My goal for this race was to finish under 4 hours and save my tired, battered bod for the SGM in two weeks. Mission accomplished! My stress fractured feet and broken ribs seemed to have healed up enough that they didn't bother me...

I jumped into the 3:50:00 pace group that was being paced by Forum Flyer Canyon, by the way shes a great pacer! I stuck with her till about mile 15 where I began to get a bit weary.

I went 15 miles under 9 minutes and 11 miles over 9 minutes. Fastest 7.35 with a slowest at 9.41.

I am truly satisfied with this time and performance! Now its time to get recovered and ready to do a 3:30:00 at the St. George!!!!!!!

OK, thats keeping it short and sweet..........tyi!

Wow, what a lazy day it was for me. I didn't do anything. I layed around all day licking my wounds and battle scars. TOU is a fun race but it sure was tough packing all that water weight down the course......oh well, now its time to get ready for SGM in two weeks!!!
