By the skin of my neck...

It's been tough on the home front. The kids got really sick, now I'm sick, and not more than 4 hours a sleep a night for about 10 days now. I wasn't even sure if I should run. Honestly, I didn't really want to run. I'm tired. But I did run, and somehow I managed to pull a 3:40:51 out of my butt. I seriously cannot believe I did it...

Katie, I was waiting for this! You are amazing! I am so happy for you and can't wait to hear details. You are going to Boston! Hurray! Maybe we can do some training runs together this weekend!

I know you have way faster times in you, Katie, and those will come, but to pull a BQ 7 months after having a baby, on little sleep and much sickness, restrained by your ITB, etc, etc, is just amazing. So happy for you and I hope you are celebrating!

WOW! congratulations! I am in awe! You are seriously amazing. I had a baby almost 4 months ago and I can barely pull off 5 miles these days. I can't believe you ran a BQ marathon 7 months post baby! Absolutely amazing, congrats again, you definitely deserve some celebrating!
