B.Q.

I'm utterly exhausted.  I don't have the brain power to do my marathon recap tonight, but I couldn't leave you hanging for the rest of the weekend either.  This race experience was unmatched.  I ran the Top of Utah Marathon in 3:39:07 and qualified for the 2012 Boston Marathon by the skin of my teeth.  I loved it!  I can't wait to do it again.  Look for the full recap sometime on Monday.

OH my goodness this post is so inspiring! I love every picture! You look so happy and strong, the exact way a great race should feel. And you qualified, that is so great!

I don't know which time to go with though, that's weird that the course was so much longer. I guess keeping the longer time would definitely give you something to beat though?

I can totally relate to the shaky hands the morning of the race. My first time competing and Cross Country Nationals, we all painted our nails BYU blue, and I could hardly keep the brush steady!

Congrats, again!
