"Racing teaches us to challenge ourselves. It teaches us to push beyond where we thought we could go. It helps us to find out what we are made of. This is what we do. This is what it's all about."

116th Boston Marathon

The Boston Marathon is marathon hosted by the US city of Boston, Massachusetts, on Patriots' Day, the third Monday of April. Begun in 1897 the Boston Marathon is the world's oldest annual marathon.

The Boston marathon is open to runners 18 or older from any nation, but they must meet certain qualifying standards. To qualify, a runner must first complete a standard marathon course certified by a national governing body affiliated with the International Association of Athletics Federations within a certain period of time before the date of the desired Boston Marathon (usually within approximately 18 months prior).

Finally this time I was able to register ... April 16, 2012 I will be in Boston!
