Like a lot of runners who take their time seriously, it would be awesome to qualify for the Boston Marathon someday.
Right now, for me that means running a marathon in 3:35:00 or faster. My performances at shorter distances could indicate my ability to run a BQ marathon. So here are my goals for other distances, and my current PR’s. I realize this will take some time to achieve. I don’t expect to hit these times at my next attempt racing the distance. These are just my long term goals of where I’d like to be.
Suggested times needed are per the McMillian Pace Calculator.
