When I first started running, I had a bucket list of things I wanted to try — just once.
Running the Boston Marathon was on that list.
Course, now that bucket list item has been edited to “run Boston Marathon as many times as I can before I die.”
And, since I’m in a very different place now than I was when I was training for Boston (mostly healing from being boots on ground at the finish when the bombs went off), I now have different bucket list items, too.
Now I want to BQ sometime before I’m dead.
I want to run an Ultra.
I want to do a 100 mile relay.
And I want to run a marathon in under 4 (no biggie, only have to shave 2 hours off my time!).
Oh, and I want to keep running for as long as humanly possible, with as many people as possible.
This post means nothing to you, but it means something to me. It means I don’t want to become stagnant. Ever.
Always. Be. Training.
