    OMG, this could have been me! I ran Grandma’s this past Saturday, too. My first marathon ever! And I BQ’d. It was the most amazing thing, yet these past few days have been a struggle between euphoria and depression. It is crazy. Will I run another? Well, I qualified for Boston, right? Who’d have thunk it? Angie, congratulations on your second marathon! You rock!

      Great job on the BQ! I’ve heard of (and have had) some runners blues myself. Best cure is another race!

      Thanks, Theresa! Congrats on your awesome time! I’m proud to say that based on my finish time, I’ve upped my qualifying year from 70 years old, to 65! LOL! :)

      I got the runners blues after my first (no BQ here, I be slow! :)) and that was what led to me doing my second marathon last fall! Two in one year – that was and will be my limit! Mostly for the sanity of my family! :) Congrats!

    I am hell-bent on signing up for 3 marathons back-to-back (or maybe a half and 2 fulls, my barest concession to sanity), with only 3-4 weeks between them. My training plan is targeted for the first race, and then I just repeat the last month’s traning 2 more times!

      I think leaving 3-4 weeks between marathons probably is the smartest… not a whole 16 like me! ;)

    When I finished my first, my husband was ready to sign me up to do it again next year. I told him if he did that I wouldn’t speak to him for a very long time. It’s taken the better part of 6 months for me to “forget” and start to get the urge to do another one
