It has been a tough road back for me since my 5th place finish at the Boston Marathon. Going into the race I didn’t have a perfect training buildup or a tune up race. As you may recall, I didn’t have any races between last year’s New York City Marathon and the Boston Marathon this spring. I recovered quickly and well after the New York City Marathon victory. I was getting in shape very quickly for the Boston Marathon. I had a few setbacks during the Boston Marathon build up, and at a critical time. It was right in the middle part of my build-up. Some people thought I was too busy making appearances to train for Boston, but that couldn’t be farther from the truth. I was committed to end the streak of non-American winners at the Boston Marathon, and was glad that Ryan Hall and I were both given the opportunity by John Hancock.
