As I waited in the cold and the rain for the marathon to start I had one thing on my mind.
Boston. The Boston marathon is special. You have to be fast enough to qualify for it. Apparently only 10 percent of runners are fast enough to qualify. And yesterday morning that was my focus. And hey, I had been eating organic veggies all year. I was positive that was the trick!
Apparently organic veggies and lots of wine was the tick. Because in 3 hours and 37 minutes I crossed the finish line with a fast enough time for the Boston marathon!
I love that guy in the air!
One of the greatest things about blogging is that it is like a semi personal journal. And while I choose to share only some aspects of my life on here, this is one of the things that I am looking forward to reading again when I am old and gray. I want to remember all the highlights of yesterday. Like Taylor jumping in to run a couple of miles with me, and running through beautiful wine country, crossing the finish line with people who were strangers at first, but became close friends during the 26.2 miles that we ran together. This is mainly a farming/food blog. But sometimes I like throwing in the random things we do. And today I am glowing with this big accomplishment. I am a little unsteady on my feet, and going from sitting to standing is somewhat of a challenge, but it feels pretty darn good all at the same time! It’s the same kind of beat up feeling you get after a long day of farming. And I like that.
We are off to enjoy wine country. Cheers!
