just registered for the 2010 boston marathon!

while it goes against every procrastination instinct in my body, i bit the bullet and registered for the 2010 boston marathon this morning. with the following warning boldly on display at the boston athletic association site:

"Registration for the 114th Boston Marathon on Monday, April 19, 2010 is ongoing and the race is rapidly approaching its field size limit.

Registration is underway. If you have met the qualifying standards and intend to enter the race, the B.A.A. strongly advises you to register now before the field is filled."

i wasn't about to risk a disastrous repeat of last year - when i was unceremoniously closed out of the 2009 race because a record fast filling of the race field! so ended my 5 year streak of boston marathons :(

i'll have more to say about the 2010 edition (my second favorite event at any distance, behind the hometown favorite nyc marathon) in the months ahead. for now, suffice to say - beantown bound - again - in the spring :D

update: the 2010 boston marathon registration closed on november 13, 2009!!
