Boston Bound??

I have been given 7 weeks.

My beautiful wife of 3 months will be running the Boston Marathon, which is great. I was going to Boston to watch with my friend who also has his wife running Boston. It was going to be a nice vacation. To my surprise Clint turned on me and with little training decided to run the Marine Corps Marathon in hopes of qualifying for Boston. 3 hours, 9 minutes, and 40 seconds later he crossed the line. I waited for the phone call....

I was told I would be spectating at Boston alone unless I manned up (he used more persuasive wording) and qualified too. So the Dallas Whiterock is in 7 weeks. Thats 7 weeks to go from casual 4 mile runs to 3:10 Marathon shape.

wish me luck

  1. good luck! tough task... 7 weeks. you can do it. I'm running Austin and Boston too. I'm sure you have no shortage of people to train with but if you're looking for someone to do track/long runs with you let me know.
