the first time i qualified for Boston! I was at mile 24 of the Harrisburg Marathon...and i thought to myself, even if i stopped, tripped, broke my arm, and had to walk from here, I’d still qualify.... that was a great feeling knowing i not only accomplished my goal but i PRed by 17 minutes... a true runner’s high!
