The title of this post represents the 'submission number' associated with my application for the Boston Marathon next April. The announcement on the homepage that few places remained forced me to bite the bullet. I do this with some trepidation. Firstly is the cost; it is $175 to register, never mind the travel and accommodation costs. Additionally, I could very well be in the midst of a new job search and assuming there will be any jobs to search for I fear I might find myself having to withdraw from Boston to do an interview.
Hopefully things will work out that mean I both get to compete in Boston and have some career prospects too!

Good Luck with Boston. I had a blast there last year (well - apart from the actual race, maybe).

Try and make it, and then enjoy the trip.

Well will Boston be your 3 hour marathon. Best of luck with the training. Fingers crossed for you.

I will do my best Thomas. I will certainly do a spring marathon but hope it will be Boston.
Paudie, hopefully; 27 seconds is what I want to take off my current PB! Good luck on your sub 3 project, you're making nice steady progress.
