Dannirr, lowrez - BQ does get easier every 5 years... Keep trying! I promised myself that my first race in the USA would be Boston... It took years and years to qualify but it was worth the wait... I finally ran a BQ on my 77th marathon (ran the 2013 race...) and then my second BQ came relatively quickly on my 94th! So I will be running my second Boston this April...
lowres - I'm sorry I missed you at the Village Bakery half. I realised that there was a fatal flaw in the plan when all the WrexhamAC runners started stripping off to revealtheir purple vests! Sorry it must have been like looking for a Japanese needle in a haystack! I hope your run went well.
I had a super run. Ran an unofficial PB at 10 miles (1:06:49) and although I faded in the last 3 miles, managed an official PB of just over 2 minutes (1:29:00).
lowrez - hahaha... I'll be the Japanese runner in a purple Dorking & Mole Valley vest... it shouldn't be difficult to spot me as I don't think there will be any other Dorking runners taking part... Hope to bump into you.
