    The charge on my card showed last year when I got rejected.  It showed up and then went away a few days later.  I think they do that to verify a valid card.

     

    Gotcha.

        I believe I've read that you can improve your seeding after registration. Is that true? I tried googling but all of the BAA FAQ links are broken that would seem to discuss this.

          Yes.  I believe they send reminders too.  I think you can update until February (don't quote me on that).

           

          I registered as well.  I don't intend to run right now, but I tend to change my mind about these things, and it's just too far out right now to be sure that I don't want to run it.

          Everyone's gotta running blog; I'm the only one with a POOL-RUNNING blog.

                  I'll be registering today for Boston #3! It took me six marathons (and 9 years!) to qualify the first time, and my experience totally lived up to my high expectations!

                   

                   

                  Do you have a link? I really liked the old RW Boston forum as it really helped me prep for my first time!

                    Yes. They will send out emails with info on how to do it.

                          Registered this morning for the BQ-5 group!

                           

                          My issue now is that they didn't have my race in their database. It was a very small race and last year was the first year they held a marathon (it had been only a half for a long time). But they made a big deal about being a Boston qualifier and getting their USATF certification number. So I assume it is legit. It better be. On the registration form, it has me input the race website and upload a finisher certificate. Which for this race was a link to Athlinks.

                           

                          Anyone have any any experience with how this works?

                                'Bout time they got off their asses and sent us the confirmations.
