521 seconds

Today marked the 118th running of the Boston Marathon. I was plugged into the live stream, numerous Twitter feeds, and text message updates all morning long.

Although it’s not a lifelong goal of mine, I would someday like to qualify for and compete in the Boston Marathon. My current marathon PR is just 521 seconds (8 min. 41 sec.) off BQ pace for my gender and age division. 3:05 sounds lightning fast, but I believe I can achieve it someday.
