Today registration for The Boston Marathon opened and filled up in just eight hours, setting an unprecedented record. (Last year it was open for several weeks before it closed and even then, it filled early compared to past races.)
I was fortunate to be one of those who got my entry in this morning. Now I have to wait for an email confirmation as BAA administrators verify all qualifying times before they let you in officially.
I don’t know how long that process will take but I am astounded by the race filling up in one day! That is just PLAIN CRAZY!!
Looks like I’m not the only one with Boston aspirations nor the only one running down my midlife demons!
I’m tired and sore and fighting a cold today. I’m awfully glad to have the Denver R&R Marathon behind me and now looking ahead to the journey from Hopkinton to Boston, April 2011.
Aging is inevitable, but growing old is a choice. Lace up your shoes and let’s go.
Today’s a much needed recovery day; Denver to Boston miles logged: 733.2; Miles left to go: 1,036.8 (Plus one BAA email confirmation!)
