|My marathon training plan with the actual miles in blue.|
Speaking of BQing, I decided not to submit my finishing time (and money) in order to run the 2015 Boston Marathon next April. I am thinking instead of running a "local" marathon for the spring, perhaps Carmel, Indiana, which is a flat course and only costs $65! I'll probably set my sights on the running the Boston Marathon again in 2016. I don't want to get too far ahead of myself, so I'll (try and) keep my focus on Chicago next month!
Here are some more pics from my runs during my trip to Boston last week. I stayed on Beacon Street near the 23 mile marker on Beacon. The Boston Marathon mile indicators were painted on the ground every mile along the street:

*26.5 is my typical marathon length due to an additional 0.3 miles of not running the tangents perfectly.
