Guess Who's Going to Boston?

My little sister, that's who!! Congratulations to Hilary, who finished the Royal Victoria Marathon yesterday in miserable rainy conditions managing a time of 3:48.18. Yay, Hilary -- I bet you'll be enjoying some massive doses of running-induced endorphins today. Good thing, 'cause you're probably not enjoying the sore muscles, blisters, and all the other aches and pains. We're so proud of you for finally achieving this goal.


  1. Yay Hilary!! she did qualify once before - but this time she's going make the trip to Boston - a worthy city for her to run her 10th marathon.

  2. you're right to give Hil credit for having qualified before, Rachel -- I should have mentioned that. Hadn't realized this will be marathon #10 -- damned impressive!

  3. Thanks. I really appreciate your
    encouragement. I didn't realize how much I wanted to qualify, sort of down playing it in my usual way, but when I rounded the corner and realized I was under 3:50 I started to tear up, the first time that's happened.
    Better yet I've only got one blister!!

  4. Way to go Hilary!

    Now you can concentrate on London!



I'd love to hear your response to my post. Agree, disagree, even go off on a tangent, I love to know you're out there, readers. Let's chat, shall we? I apologize, though, for the temporary necessity of the Word Verification -- spam comments have been tiresomely numerous lately, and I'm hoping to break that pattern.
