WOW has it been a while?? Philly seemed like so long ago! Since then, I’ve been training with a new coach and have set a new goal for a spring marathon. I haven’t chosen the race yet but will keep you posted. I am looking for a course I can hopefully BQ on (yes, that’s my new goal!). I ran Queens yesterday and of course there was a snow storm on the first day of spring, the night before the race. The race crew did an awesome job clearing the course but there was still some unavoidable slush and puddles. I finished 5th in my age group in 1:41:25, missing my goal time by 1:25 :( However, given the conditions, I am happy with my performance bc I still PRed! I plan to run the course again in April to redeem myself.
Do you see the snow in the background?!
This is a short post but I would LOVE to hear if anyone is also trying to BQ or has any tips on a BQ course???
