Savannah marathon results

My final time for the race was 3:40:02. Yes, that means I missed qualifying for Boston by two seconds. And, yes, I did cry about it for a minute. Hugs from my friends and kids helped me feel better, and by gosh, I will, eventually, run that junk two seconds faster. The good news is that I ran this course (though they modified it somewhat from last year) 23 minutes faster this year than last year, and my time today is a personal record by more than six minutes. So there is a lot to be thankful for. But I'm OK with being sad about it for a minute too. Thanks for all of your support! Your positive words kept me pushing when I wanted to stop!
