Didn't feel like running this afternoon.

 New plan for the upcoming year. Des News Marathon in July (bummer it's not on the circuit!) and the Boston Marathon next April. As a matter of fact, I'm going to make hotel reservations in Boston for 2014 tomorrow.

I like the plan, Rob. No reason you can't work on that half PR plan as well.

I will join you Rob. We could get a big house like Scott did this year.

I'm gonna qualify for the trials in the fall and be there w/ ya in Boston next spring too.

Nice plan Rob! I never cared about qualifying for Boston (or running a marathon for that matter), but now I find myself motivated to do so. Boston 2015!

From RileyCook on Tue, Apr 16, 2013 at 10:53:25 from

I think everyone that is qualified and can reasonably go should do so...Boston 2014! Show the world we as runners and more so as Americans won't be bullied out of the activities we love.
