Boston Registration Opens Chicago Shut out
I signed up for the Chicago Marathon the first day it opened back in Feb. My hope for Chicago was a Boston Marathon Qualifying time. Then came the changes announced by the BAA that the registration time would be Sept 12th and only the fastest qualifiers would get to register first. I am pretty sure Boston will close by the time Chicago comes around on Oct. 9th.
I am frustrated with the timing of everything, but I do like the new standards and will push harder in my training to make my goal.
If I qualify for Boston 2013 with my time in Chicago, I will apply for a Charity Entry into Boston 2012.
Things may change, but the ultimate goal stays the same.
