Good morning! I took the morning off work and was in front of the computer at 6 a.m. Pacific time to submit my 2011 Boston registration. Apparently, along with thousands of others. Every time I filled out my registration form and submitted it, the website clicked me back to the registration form. I grew very adept at filling it in quickly! (I copied and pasted my credit card number, as I couldn't memorize it and was afraid of making a mistake in retyping so many times.) At 7:00 I took a break and went back to bed for a while. I tried again around 8:00 and after just a few more false tries, suddenly I was accepted! Now they have to verify my qualifying time and whatnot. (In case you are wondering what marathon allowed someone like me to qualify for Boston, it was CIM in December 2009--highly recommended if you want to squeak out a BQ time! Mine was 3:59:40.)
Now it's 9 a.m. and I have the rest of the morning to play with. You'd think I might go for a run, wouldn't you? So would I...but my quads are still so sore from the trail run on Saturday that I think I am going to wait till afternoon, when I hope my legs will have loosened up from walking around during the day. I am thinking of a quick trip to Starbucks before I get in the shower...I already ate my breakfast at 6 a.m.!
