The Boston Marathon is not for the nonchalant. It is for the persistent endurance athlete who won’t take no for an answer.
- She will run as many marathons as she needs to in order to meet her goal.
- If her qualifying time does not post, she will pester the heck out of the race officials at her qualifying marathon until it does.
- And when the Boston Athletic Association’s registration site fails repeatedly in accepting her application, she will not only persist in repeatedly trying but will rally the help of another to also try to get through to the next page in the process.
Yes, she will not give up.
