She ran and she ran.

I've discussed how my SIL is a marathon runner.  Today, she ran her 8th (if I'm counting right) marathon.  We've been to 6 of 8, only missing Disney and Paris.  We've seen her run Chicago twice, Boston (2007), NYC, Marine Corps in DC and now Cleveland.  She is an amazing runner and we are very proud of her.

She fell slightly short of her goal today.  She wanted to run 3:45 or less to qualify for Boston in the spring.  She was running 3:43 right until the last bit that required her to run on bridges that had a pretty incredible incline AT THE END.  Poor thing.  She missed Boston qualifying by 1:50.  UGH!

She just ran Paris 40 days ago.  She ran 3:49 there.  In Washington DC/Marine Corps Marathon, she ran 4:09 (thanks to an 8 minute line at the loo.)  Since October, she has shaved some significant time from her run.

Bless her heart.  Run, Kristin, run!
