>Racing>Is 3:30 unrealistic for the first time marathon runner?
A 3:09? That's quite a debut! Good race!
Nice job, David. Congratulations!
Run until the trail runs out.

Reading others' discussion, I think no chance to get a place using that BQ time. So I am not planning to go there next year.
5k - 20:56 (09/12), 7k - 28:40 (11/12), 10k trial - 43:08 (03/13), 42:05 (05/13), FM - 3:09:28 (05/13), HM - 1:28:20 (05/14), Failed 10K trial - 6:10/mi for 4mi (08/14), FM - 3:03 (09/14)
I think it's too early to say yet. If they enlarge the field, as seems likely, then probably anyone with a BQ can get in. We will have to wait and see.
