It's Official

I don't know why I had been waiting to register for Boston. Registration opened in early September. I think I was waiting to see how I did at Chicago this year. If I BQ'ed again, I would have had the option of Boston in either 2008 or 2009. This would have afforded me some wiggle room if I just couldn't make it next spring. As we know, that didn't happen.

So, why wait? If this last marathon taught me anything, it's that you can never predict what is going to happen on race day. I shouldn't pass by the opportunity and assume it's going to happen again. It may not.

Let's get busy living:

I'm in...pending the ominous "provided the information you submitted is accurate" statement.
Disney Goofy Challenge and then Boston. My dance card is full for awhile.
Happy trails.

Congrats (contingent, of course, on the fact that the information you submitted is accurate) !!

That's sort of weird, do they then go verify it? Well anyway, this is really cool. YAHOO!
