Well....not that I have been working at this really, it was still always something I dreamed about (and maybe in a couple of years it will become serious again for me)...but looks like at least for a while that I need to keep focusing on the other dreams...which is fine, because there are so many other things out there on my bucket list that needs to be attended to first :O)

this is really quite a huge change. if they pick the fastest runners first (i mean there could be ALL of them in lets say sub 3:30), never giving anyone over that a chance. Its not like they are picking the fastest from each age group up to a certain number.

oh well.

Its not enough to hit your required time. You need to BETTER that time significantly to make it in with the rolling regsitratations or you are out.

I fear that basically anyone that has to run 3:45 or better is SOL. all the spots will be taken with the AG's before that.

this makes me sad, my buddy Megan sent it to me this morning.

I know I wasn't even close, especially for my age, but I thought maybe one day i'd run another marathon and maybe qualify. My running buddy AK qualified in houston with 3:40:and the change, barely making it with the time for her age (late 30s).

I thought maybe later in life, I could somehow make the time. Now I guess even that would be a huge leap.
