There’s a woman in my running group named Mary. She is 62 years old and just started marathon running last year. This weekend, Mary qualified for the Boston Marathon.
Let that sink in for a second.
Mary qualified with a time of 4:18 (in her age group this is a qual time. I would have to be almost an hour faster to qualify). Nonetheless, I’m pretty sure I won’t be able to finish MCM in a time of 4:18 and I am more than 30 years younger than Mary.
Mary, if you are reading this, you are amazing. You inspire me and I know you inspire other people in our group. Never stop running.
