SeekingBostonMarathon is an amateur's journey to race in the ultimate annual marathon--the Boston Athletic Association's Boston Marathon. This is not an olympic runner or professional runner's advice site, but an "average joe" who got hooked on running and finally reached hallowed ground in 2010 and is constantly seeking to get back to Boston.
Keep up the Good Work
I have had incredible support from loved ones close to me and my internet running and triathlon community. I went for a three mile walk on Thursday night and came across a group of young kids training with a triathlon team. These were little ones that looked like ages six to eleven. As I was walking back to the car, a steady stream of kids rode by on their bikes with huge smiles on their faces. One of the energetic boys yelled out to me, "keep up the good work!" It seemed out of character for such a mature competitive string of words to come out of such a little athlete.
A huge smile came across my face and I thought to myself. I will...keep up the work, to get back to where I was six weeks ago. Thank you little man.
