I am A Boston Marathon Qualifier!

11 11 2017

Finally, I earned my #Legit Boston Qualifier at the age of 65 years old at the 2017 Revel Canyon City Marathon Race with an official time of 3:46:06 hours. My BQ time for my age is 4:10 hours.

My New PR since I retired from the military service & as the Bald Runner.

Boston, here I come in April 2019!

Bonus: I won the First Place in my Age Category Group (65-69 years old) out 16 Finishers.
