So I just heard that registration for the 2013 Boston Marathon is officially closed. The qualifier cap has been met and the race is now full.
Registration opened about a month ago, and about 19,000 of the available 21,600 qualifier spots filled up in the first two weeks. That didn’t leave a whole lot of space for Chicago -and other cities- marathoners (I had lots of friends who kicked butt in Chicago last weekend!) to squeeze in.
As a whole, I think the registration floated along smoothly this year (from my little perspective). I wonder if the BAA will tweak the registration process again for next year? I’ll keep my ears open and let ya know if I hear anything.
I hope everyone who wanted to run Boston 2013 got in! I can’t wait to see you there! But first, I’ve got a cold winter of training ahead… eww, winter running, you are not my fave.
Happy Thursday, friends!
PS. If you watch the Colorado (/Arizona State) game tonight, 1. I apologize (because we’re pretty awful this year) and 2. look for me and Weez! We’ll be there! We landed 50-yard line seats for FREE, so I’m pretty excited. Go Buffs!
