This was my first time being able to register for the boston marathon. As of right now this is very stressful waiting to hear back from the B.A.A in an email to see if you in are not.
The registration pocess was simple and quick for the most part. I had to use a different web browser the google chrome works find. It took me about 10 min to submit my information and for them to give me a ID number for my application.
They will tell you after the last page this is not a acceptance just to confirm you information. The fee cost me $185 and they say would only be charge to my account if I receive a acceptance e-mail.
Waiting for this e-mail is like waiting for test score to come back. This is Monday Stepmember 25, 2017 and I have still not receive a e-mail. I have been checking my e-mail box way to much in the last 5 days.
I have always told myself boston bound are rejected my goal is to crush my 3hrs 8 min PR in 2018. I will run a marathon under 3hrs. This will free me from worrying so much on this date next year.
Yes! It would hurt at first to be rejected after putting in all that hard work but that e-mail will be post mark everyday I train. If I get in the race then it would be my greatest accomplishment up to this date.
I was in a Job interview on Friday and ask the Guy that doing the hiring if I could have some time off to run Boston. I would be new to the Job and not have no vacation time are much time off. He say if you run boston I will make sure you get time off.
I thought wow! this is why boston is so big like the olympics for mortal runner’s like me and my readers! My goal with this blog is to help every boston dreamer run this great race on Marathon Monday in April!
