Acceptance into the Boston Marathon
Today I received my official acceptance email into the 120th running of the Boston Marathon. While I was excited to receive it, it was slightly melodramatic having run the qualifier over 10.5 months ago. None the less, looking forward to some focused training. I am aiming at a new PR. The current plan is for a sub 2:55 (which if attained will be a 5 minute 45 second personal record).
My training in general has been going pretty well lately. Now that the weather is getting cooler, I am tuning my speed in hopes of capturing a new 5k PR before the years end. Training since Nat has been born has been a little more difficult. Every week has been interesting to figure out where I can fit in runs and when; early mornings, late nights, and a whole lot of lunch runs.
Congratulations to Laura
The Third Annual Sharfman Run
The Sharfman 5K is coming up in just under two weeks. I can't believe that has been over 3 and half years now since my neighbor Dan passed away. His memorial race is coming up on October 4th and I want to see if I can improve on my 4th place, 17:56 finish from last year. Anyone and everyone is welcome to join.
