Yeah, I heard it was full too. Sorry for all who haven't signed up for 2010. It would be truly miraculous if I qualified for 2011 - I am injured and haven't run since the end of September. I hope to be given the Ok to run in three weeks...

The Joy is in the Journey!

I've been thinking about it and if I qualify, I might just take a charity bib and run April 2010. Let's see how I feel after Sacramento and how I do. Thanks for all of the encouragement.

If not, I'll see you all in New Orleans.

Sounds fun, but I have taken a Solemn Vow. I will not run marathons in warm climates. I live and train in a very cold climate. 26.2 miles + 65F and up = puking!

Come to New Orleans - He is referring to the Rock & Roll Mardi Gras Marathon. You can qualify for Boston there - it's a FLAT course! :)

Even though Boston 2010 is full, your BQ is good for 18 months.

I hope to qualify soon, but I've been saying that for nearly 3 years! I'm getting closer. Next attempts: Napa (March) and Newport (June).

New Orleans? I am hoping to go to New Orleans to see Pitt in the Sugar Bowl if they make it there. I assume there are people running a marathon there. Correct?

If people qualify for Boston 2011 this Fall, they can try to better their time (and seeding spot) with a Spring marathon, going all out without fear of blowing up and not qualifying. In my 4 Bostons, I have done everything from hit the Start line running at race pace less than 30 seconds after the cannon went off to walking across the Start line almost 15 minutes after the race began.

I would like to, but would probably need to do the charity route. We shall see.
Good luck to Jeffrey!


There is a sparkteam if anyone is interested. It is quiet, but the more the merrier.

Initially, I was charging to try to make Boston 2010. BUT I just got word that Boston has already filled up 185 days before the race (Nov. 13). Last year, folks were still trying to qualify and could still sign up through January.

It was pretty devastating. I think if I had known, I would have held off on charging so hard at CIM Sacramento and waiting longer to run another one. Such is life.

Maybe I'll just go to New Orleans with the rest of you SparkPeople after all.

JEFFREYDLE may be qualifying at the California International Marathon on 12/6. I'm wondering how many SparkPeople will be going.
