Boston Marathon Application! November 23, 2009

If it hasn’t already been official…. it’s official now! I mailed in my 2010 Boston Marathon application this week!!!! I double triple checked that I filled everything in correctly. I still can’t believe I’m actually doing this. I feel like I’m on the outside cheering this girl on… and this girl is TOTALLY me!!! 

In the official Entry form was the route map. I’ve studied this map before, even prior to becoming a runner and having the Boston Marathon within my grasp. I mean this is the most prestigious race in the world! This is the big time! But I was surprised to learn that the race doesn’t even ENTER boston til like Mile 21! 

Some route highlights I’m looking forward to:

  • The Wellesely College Scream Tunnel at Mile 13
  • Running past Fenway Park (They always have a morning game, so when the game gets out, all the fans come out and cheer!)
  • And of course, running into Copley Square (the finish line)!

I was thinking about all of these things when I mailed my entry form in!!

But there are totally parts about Boston that totally terrify me:

  • Heartbreak Hill (the notorious hill at mile 21)
  • Disappointing my family and friends–who will be there cheering!
  • Being at the back of the pack!

I know I’m not the slowest runner to ever take on Boston… but I certainly aren’t running with the Kenyans, either. My previous marathon time was 6:28. I’m really aiming for 5:30 in Boston. But by Boston Marathon Standards… even that is…. slow. 

If I was to qualify to run Boston… they think I should be able to run it in 3:40. HAHAHA If I was to maintain my pace now when I am 80 years old, I might qualify. lol It’s a cruel joke.

But regardless of my finish time, this race is 100% about me: beating my own record, celebrating my own 10-year cancer remission… and raising money for my the best cause I can think of: The Dana-Farber clinic. 

Join me in my race to the finish line in the ultimate race against cancer. Donate Here!

Welcome to the new Kelocity.Com!

I am in the process of converting my old website to this new and improved wordpress site, so bear with me as I finish switching everything over!
(Eventually, all my old sites will be back dated to populate my blog, so if you’re looking for my old pictures, race recaps and travelogues, use the search on the right hand side to find them. I’m adding them one by one.

I am so so excited to finally have a blog-formatted website to share my life with the world wide web! Pardon the dust while we get settled in!

But I’m starting this blog out with a bang!
I’ve got big news!!!

I will be running and fundraising with the Dana-Farber team!

This really is a once in a lifetime opportunity, and I am so excited, scared and proud!

Stay tuned for more details!!!
And thanks for reading!!
