Boston here I come!!!

I have to get out of my hotel room, but wanted to post quick -

3:32:36

I don't think I could be more proud of that time. It was NOT EASY. My stomach was a disaster. I lost over five minutes with four portapotty stops. I ran so freaking hard!

I qualified for Boston with over 12 minutes to spare, and beat my previous marathon PR (set in April) by 25 minutes.

My legs felt awesome the whole way... still do.

YAY! YAY! YAY!!!

Two weeks until Top of Utah now. :)

I am on my home to go celebrate with my awesome family. More soon (including pics and a real race recap)!
