    If you have put in the necessary training and feel good about your chances but want to make sure you have a favorable course and race production to get to Boston, this is YOUR RACE. Absolutely gorgeous scenic, mostly flat course, and everything about it is geared toward PR’ing and qualifying. The last I heard, almost 69% of the 141 race finishers last weekend for the 2017 race achieved BQs. I cleared my BQ standard by 5:33, which was a new PR by 2:27.

    Brilliantly done, Mark! Great profile pic, too. A 69% qualifying rate is mind-boggling, talk about a race for runners. Congrats on punching your ticket for Patriots' Day 2018 – no better way to end your week than registering for (and being accepted to) Boston. And thanks for the helpful review! LESS
