**Boston Marathon 2018**
« on: April 15, 2018, 03:30:49 PM »
Despite the near guarantee of slower times, there's something appealing about the "suck it, bitches!" from mother nature years.  It's a great way to level the playing field and with the caliber of white folk entered on both sides, means that the Americans have as good a shot as anybody!  Can't wait to see what kind of bizarre outfit Salazar has Rupp compete in.



Who else is running (or at least 'participating')?  Give me bib numbers and goals! 

ETA:

Ro Chi Minh - 11473
Arrojo - 28300
Ellen - 25788

GOGOGO!!!

Tomorrow is survival mode for me.  I've been working to get back to Boston for so long that at this point, given the weather, I just want to finish.  I'm super curious about what the elites wear in this shit.  I'm also a little optimistic that it hasn't started raining yet, at least out here in Arlington.

I'm 11473

I suppose it's not too late to scour social media for bib number posts and print off a fake one.  Time to look for flights to boston  :runner:

28300.

My last Boston Marathon; Iíll be slow.  My goal is to run as well as I can, finish strong and smile at the end.  Iíve been through all the stages of grief with this forecasted heavy rain and heavy headwinds; denial (BS itís not gonna rain), anger (how could this happen after all my hard training??!), grief (waaaaah!) to acceptance.

Bring it on. Iíve run in below zero temps, ice, snow. What doesnít kill us makes us stronger. Yeah, itís gonna suck but thereís beer at the finish line. And itís gonna be badass.

HASAYISOUT!!!


PEDs and over-training will do that to a person

Plus, can you imagine how much it would hurt to run for a couple hours with that wet blonde whip smacking you in the back?

No thanks

Pretty slim pickins for streaming options this year.  The BAA site doesn't seem to be doing one, so it's pretty much impossible to get at work without a cable provider login, which I have no idea off the top of my head.  Currently watching on a youtube stream of some dude's TV in spanish  :P

Men are off!  Now to see how many wave 1 runners say 'fuck it' amidst the chaos and decide to mess around up front with the elites.

Men are moving briskly on the other hand - low 15s through 5k.  Right on 2:07 pace.  Seems conducive to not freezing to death?  :snowball:
