The Year of the Monkey
I'm running somewhere tomorrow. It's going to be beautiful. I can't wait.
Boston does have a 35-39 group, while NY does not. So Boston goes 18-34 3:10:59, 35-39 3:15:59, 40-49 3:20:59
While NY is 18-39 2:55/1:23 40-49 3:10/1:30
I think the 40-49 half time is attainable. The 1:23/2:55 are pretty equivalent.
No. If you're 45 (and male) when you run Boston, the qualifying time is 3:30. It's WAY easier.
2. You fall through the lottery three times
Out of curiosity, if you win in the lottery - can you defer it?
In other words, I'm sure I'll run NYC in the 3-4 years ... can I apply, sort of hoping to lose the lottery 3 years in a row ... but defer it if I win?
Somehow I'll bet I'm not the only one to think of this.
Was it all a dream?
Just run the qualifying time. There. Done.
I never knew NY had a qualifying time for guaranteed entry. I smell a goal! Shaking fist .... DAMM YOU ALL TO H-E-doublehockeysticks for bringing this to my attention.
Hawt and sexy
I'm touching your pants.
I couldn't find the info on the website, so I'm curious to know if anyone here knows the answer.
When the cutoff for NYC says 2:45, does that mean 2:45:00 or 2:45:59?
I know Boston has changed from :59 to :00, but hoping NYC does not do it that way.
Thank you for taking the time to read my signature!
