Awesome! Looks like you've got about 26 weeks to get ready. That's plenty of time. You should be able to become at least as fit as you were before you took your break and most likely be even more fit, depending on how you want to prepare. So...have you had time yet to think about your goal for Boston?

I just did the Staten Island Half Marathon today in very windy conditions and set a new PR by 2 minutes (1:38:16). This, and my New Hampshire Marathon results, bodes well for me to be able to hit my BQ time at the NYC Marathon. I just might (knock on wood) be able to join you on April 17th.

Awesome! You'll probably agree that was one email worth waiting for!

As for my "debunked" marathon, I'm not exactly sure what happened there. It wasn't listed among the possible qualifying races on the signup page, but at this point I'm assuming it's ok. Of course, there's still that language in the BAA email about "...provided that the information you submitted is accurate." Maybe they didn't verify anything at all.

Congratulations on the new PR! Your BQ time is 3:30 if I recall? Sounds like you're in good shape to me.

Congratulations, Rickshaw. A truly great honor. I know I'll never get there myself, but I admire anyone who is able to qualify and be accepted to run in the Boston Marathon. Some of my close friends ran in it last year and some others have run in years past. They truly enjoyed the experience.
