My mother qualified for the Boston Marathon today!!!!!
She ran the Milwaukee marathon in 4:05:15 by clock time, she'll check her exact chip time tomorrow.
(Clock time = when the start gun goes off to crossing the finish line
Chip time = crossing the start line to crossing the finish line)
Chip time is what counts for Boston.
She needed to run it in less that 4:05:59 and did it, with a sore knee and against a head wind. Oh, and happened to finish fourth in her age group for the ladies.
I so want to go to Boston to watch her run this spring - here's hoping my theatre schedule won't mess with that.
