30s are gone, but I got 5 more minutes

It’s official – I’m now done with my thirties.  However, I now only have to run a 3:20 marathon to BQ!  Awesome!   There are great benefits to getting older (well at least one).

The sad part is that at my current pace, I need to hit 60 before I can BQ.  But, it’s great to know I have 5 more minutes and five years to at least attempt a 3:20.  First, I need to get a sub 4.

After my dad passed away, I decided to run a marathon.  I thought it would be a good thing to do before I hit 40.  Well, before I hit 40, I ran 4 of them.  Not quite sure when my next one will be, some time later in the year, but I would be great to PR at 40.
