26.2 Days to Boston!

That is what the email read from the race I received yesterday. Hard to believe it is that close. Along with the reminder, I did get my bib information and starting assignment. I was pumped to see that my qualifying time got me into Wave 1. Wave 1 starts at 10am with 14,000 other people broken up in 14 1,000 person corrals. Wave 2, with another 14,000ish people, will go at 10:30am.


In my starting corral alone is about 6 times larger than my qualifying race. The gravity of the race is starting to really grow.

Along with my starting info I got my Bib number which is #5675. The bibs are assigned by your qualifying time. So happy to have made the 5000s! You can follow the progress of the runners on the website by the bib number. If all goes according to plan, I should be rounding the last corner just after 1:00pm.
