    Run for Boston: Finish Photo Chicago Marathon!

    On Sunday October 13th, 2013 I finished my 2nd world major world marathon in Chicago. The difference with this marathon, compared to NYC, was that I almost qualified for the 2015 Boston Marathon and I trained more vigorously. My finish time: 3:40:46!

    After the Boston Marathon event, I don't think I sat back and said, 'I don't feel like running today'. If anything, my off days in training were the worst days. I've been consistently updating my instagram and twitter @agsterthoughts with weekly run updates, tagging with #RunForBoston and even started my blog (agsterthoughtsblog.com) where I've been updating the world with my running adventures.

    Next steps:

    (1) Run Philly in 2014 and Qualify for Boston 2016
    (2) Continue being a 'crazy' runner

    ~Runners will never forget
