Boston Marathon


Two marathons down with the Los Angeles marathon a week away.

I want to train for the Boston Marathon.


3:38 is my Personal Record @ the OC Marathon. To run the Boston Marathon, men ages 18-34 are required to have run a 3:10 marathon at a qualifying race. 3:38 – 3:10 = I’d have to beat the hardest I’ve ever run… by 28 minutes. If we are talking pace, I’d have to best my per mile time by a little over a minute

  • PR: 8.32 minutes / mile pace
  • BOSTON: 7.25 minutes / mile pace

The pace sounds a little more attainable than the 28 minutes. Ultimately, this is the next step, to be a Boston Qualifier. Next stop, Los Angeles Marathon… marathon number 3.
