I missed registration so I emailed the race director more than once. I was happy to see this response "Dawn if you are desperate to run we'll let you in". I got registered and was happy.
Lets just say I did not get to bed until 1:30AM Saturday and had to be on the road by 4:00am to make the 6:45 bus to the start of the race, a 2 hour drive.
We started in different groups. I was an 8:30 start. The course took me by surprise , in and out of the board walk, we ran along streets that were open to traffic, across a field , across gravel and the endless board walks, the last three miles was all board walk almost killed me. After my first three miles I knew it wasn't going to be pretty. My only goal was to finish what I had started.
My finish time was 4:41 I had to fight for that because they had me in the system with an 8:00AM start!!! after many emails my time was finally adjusted correctly. I must say the course is very scenic, but honestly I would not pick a boardwalk to run a race. I think my idea of running the shoreline would be running along not on the beach for 26.2 miles!!!
have a great week everyone and for those that did Boston YOU ROCK!!!
