In case you were wondering how this turned out…check out the photo below (she needed to run under 3:45)…
…I’d say she kicked some booty!!!!! (AND she already received the news that she is in for Boston 2013!)
Dear Running Gods,
I need to send you a little prayer, and I really need you to answer this prayer.
My running buddy and dear friend Diana will be running her 4th marathon on Sunday, and will be making her second attempt at qualifying for the Boston Marathon at Quad Cities.
Diana is amazing, and so deserving of a BQ. She has worked her butt off through training, and would have qualified last May had the Running Gods not thrown us a little curve ball (ahem, this tragic marathon experience). Diana’s determination and drive never ceases to amaze me. She is beyond dedicated to this sport, and wants her BQ so darn bad. She is also one of the best running buddies in the whole world!
Please do everything in your running power to give her fresh legs on race day, cool temperatures and the mindset she needs to break 3:45. And to the readers of my blog – I ask that you send these positive thoughts to Diana as well.
I cannot wait to share the exciting news of a BIG BQ!
