In episode 120 in April 2019, I chatted with Molly about her aspiration to qualify for Boston and her heartbreaking near-miss in April 2018 at Mt. Charleston. In that race, she collapsed at mile 26.0 in the finishing straight and ended up in an ambulance, even though she was on track to comfortably BQ.
Fast forward to October 2021 a couple of marathons and a pandemic later, Molly earned her Boston qualifier at the St. George Marathon. She did it with several ups and downs along the way, taking lessons forward from each failure. The journey wasn't easy or short, but she did it. I find her story inspiring and very relatable for many on similar journeys. Whether you are chasing Boston or not, you can learn from Molly's relentless pursuit of and eventual completion of this goal. Congrats Molly!
