Congrats Vince

If anyone deserves to qualify for Boston its you.

I did a 1:39 in Victoria. Not as good as I had expected but for my first half marathon I feel it was a pretty good time.

Hi Vince.

Congratulations you did it!!! I'm so happy for you. I guess hard work really does pay off in the end.

Must feel great to say that you have now qualified for Boston and that you beat Hugh and Michael.

You lean mean running machine you! Can't wait to get together, I want to hear all about
your race.

Let me know when you're going to run next at the Running Room.

What you’ve accomplished is bigger than Boston and the Ironman.

Setting such a deliberate and consciously thought-out goal, one that was definitely a reach a couple of years ago, and then doing everything you have to to make it come true, is not just admirable. It’s heroic.

It’s the kind of thing that inspires and makes the accomplishment more than just a matter of a goal time and a race in Boston. It is the truest sense that if you want something enough to work for it, then your dreams are unlimited.

I am so proud of you! I knew you could do it with your dedication and drive. You go, Vince!

I am hoping to do a 3:30 next May in Vancouver. Well, maybe a 3:35 ;o) Tell me all your secrets!

Have a great Thanksgiving.
