It was great running with you and the group. I love the friendships I have made and it is wonderful to have met such kind and inspirational people! It is great to have new friendships too. I also wanted to take this time to thank you for your encouragement and dedication to me and the group. I am honored and happy to be a part of "THE ROAD TO BOSTON"! I truly appreciate your patience, dedication, encouragement and your love for coaching. Have a great week! See you Saturday when the frigid temps return. Won't those canines love it!
Thanks again for the great Spring Running Camp 2010. Iit certainly helped me relax and tune up for my best catalina marathon ever (my 5th annual!). As I was coming off of accumulated fatigue from a combination of a recent marathon, lots of pavement running and general life stresses, the camp affirmed the importance of good nutrition, rest, massage and acupuncture and especially fun and camraderie to keep us in balance.
I ran my fastest Catalina marathon by over 4 minutes and was 9th female overall, and 2nd in age division, not bad for a flatland Chicago runner training thru tough winter conditions competing agains those fast, strong California folks! Your camp really helped my performance.
Good luck to your Boston group and your last few long runs! I am looking forward to your Summer Running Camp this August 19-22. Every runner would enjoy it and benefit by attending.
All the best, Tracy
Thanks for all of your help in training and organizing all of the "extras" that go along with Road To Boston. I had a great race! I've never felt better and gone faster in my last 4-5 miles. My time ended up being 3:39:49...a requalification AND a PR! Awesome! Thank you!
