Returning to CIM: My Road to Boston

One year later, and here I am at the California International Marathon again. Last year, this was where I earned my coveted BQ qualifying time.

I did relays all the time growing up as a swimmer, but when it comes to sports on land, I tend to fly solo. Running this past weekend was a solid reminder of how much I actually love being part of a team.
