I am starting this blog-series primarily as a hopefully interesting read and insight into training for a tough marathon – The Boston Marathon.
For my age category, the qualifying time to participate in the Boston marathon is 3:10 (3 hours 10 minutes). Given the current scenario of the places getting filled some 2.5 min ahead of the qualifying times across age categories, The realistic time is 3:07.
I will let the rest of the posts in this series do more talking, beginning with why this goal, where do I stand, which run am I aiming for and for how long it has been on my mind.
I am to make the series full of pictures and as entertaining as possible. I definitely want some percentage of non-runners to read it and get inspired as well!
