You KNOW people are confused when the BAA has to create a registration calculator tool to tell you when you can register!
If you haven’t already done so, check out the Boston Marathon Registration Calculator.
I half expected it to spit out “Ha! You don’t have a prayer of actually getting in since you just eeeked by our qualifying standards” when I input my info. But it didn’t. It told me what I already knew:
|2012 BOSTON MARATHON

Damn. I really wish I had a chance of actually getting in for 2012. Irritating!
