Hi. I was lucky enough to get a ballot place on my first attempt in 2012. Had to defer as I got injured during my training. Picked up another injury and a chest infection just before 2013, and was debating dropping out until the terrible events in Boston.
I thought that my niggles and lack of quality training were nothing compared to what those runners went through in Boston.
Best decision I ever made!!
I had the most fantastic day, ended up doing 5.28.26 due to my injury, but you know what, that doesn't matter!
Still limping but also still on a 'high'.
I said I would only do it once, but guess what, I've entered the 2014 ballot!!
