I’ve been accepted into the 2014 Boston Marathon. Yes, I was there in 2013 and like many others feel a need to be there in 2014 to get a sense of closure. I feel bad for those who worked really hard to get under the qualifying time, and just made their times. With the rolling registration dates, depending on how far under the qualification time you ran, it will be difficult to get in this year. The running world will be watching to see how quickly registration fills up for 2014.
Good luck to those who are waiting anxiously to find out whether they will get in. I would be willing to give up my spot to someone who has been trying to qualify for five years or more. I guess in effect, I could do something along those lines by not registering. So much for altruism.
