So I know that you all have been sitting on the edge of your seats wondering if I was crazy enough to run the Portland marathon 2 weeks after my other marathon. I was and I am still alive to tell about it! I did indeed run the Portland marathon and qualified for Boston so now I have the option of running it in 2009 and 2010. I am very happy about that because that is the only reason that I did it. My body was definitely not fully recovered and my IT band on my left knee was hurting but I am glad I did it. It was a great day for a marathon! The temp was perfect, it started raining about 1/2 way thru but I actually enjoyed the rain, that is until I was done. At the point I was soaking wet and once I cooled down I was shivering.
Anyone crazy enough for Boston 2010? I will be there, love for you to join me!
