The Journey and the Goal

As I crossed the finish line, I knew it was over.  Not just the end of a 26.2 mile journey, but the end of a quest for an elusive goal that I had been pursuing for what seemed like eternity.  I checked my watch and realized that I had accomplished my goal of a personal best in the marathon as well as a time that would qualify me to register for one of the most prestigious and historical marathon races in the nation – The Boston Marathon!
