I'm Betty if you're Al

    Anyone in?  This is def. one of those races where driving there you ask yourself "what was I thinking?".

    2012 Goals: 5K-Sub 20:00, 10K-Sub 43:00,  1/2 1:35,

    Boston- BQ again by a time known only to my feetskies.

      I'm in.

       

      Start my "formal" training on Monday.  I dunno, when I drive there I generally think something like "the post marathon beer is going to be fantastic"...12 weeks of abstention will do that.

       

       

        Nah, this year I decided to stay home, but I am planning on a hilly 16 miler that day in the race's honor.

        I changed this, and you noticed. Hurray for us!

          Nemo. I feel the need to inform you as a celebratory post race beer drinker myself that there is no beer at te end of this race. Great spread though, and coming from Maine you could hit about 5 liquor stores on the way back. My motivation will be: the faster I run, the quicker I get back to the house with some cold beers and a good pats game!

            If all goes according to plan, I am done by 1pm...had my massage by 1:30pm (John Hancock bldg), changed and am at crossroads by 2:00pm drinking a beer. 2:15 if i've really trashed my legs.

              She's talking about (running) the Boston Prep 16 miler this weekend in Derry NH, rather than the more general prep-for-Boston marathon topic...

                  Irish and drunk here...I think it was I who needed the clarification. Thanks MilkTruck...

                   

                  I am not in for a race known as Boston Prep.

                    Nice run today, Tracey. Dead steady 5-mile splits and a great time. Impressive.

                      Thanks MT.  Was doing perfectly until that damn mountain climb at mile 11.  All in all a good day.  On the fence about the hyannis 1/2 since half at the hamptons is sold out.  Have you done it before?

                        Personally, I don't know anything about the Hyannis Half beyond what I've read on their web site. But I am signed up for it this year.
