bittersweet confirmation

Normally receiving this in the mail would fill me with the excited/nervous butterflies and I’d be jumping out of my skin with excitement.  Yes, I’ve known I was confirmed for Boston 2014, there is just something about seeing it so official like this.

I am [attempting to] hold my plans for Boston loosely.  Will I be be able to run a marathon by April 21?  It won’t be a PR marathon for sure – there are not enough days in the calendar to be able to train in order to be a potential PR race.  Even though I’ve already paid the $175 entry fee, will it be worth the expense to travel there?  We’ve definitely decided that if I am healthy and can run (or even run/walk) the marathon, we will go.  2014 is going to be an intense, powerful, beautiful year for the Boston Marathon.  I want to be apart of it.

And for inspiration … here I am kicking it to the finish of the Seaside Half Marathon back in March in route to my PR or 1:27:22. I will heal and run fast again! :)
