Just saw the news on other forum (thanks to Bob). I didn't compare all AG's but at least for women ~45yo, the new times are 10min faster than the current ones. I wasn't going to take any big chance with the current qualifying time of 3:50, but now with 3:40, this may affect how I run the Boston this year. I thought this change would come but 10min was a surprise.

I'm out.

You'll notice the field size also shrunk - from 25,000 to 15,000. That's what drove the faster qualifying standards.

looks like I will continue to watch from the sidelines. And appear to be training for the race by running this time of year around here.

A hoax? Pretty clever. Doesn't make much difference to me. I think I can make it either way.

Yah... Note that it's MYbaa.org and not baa.org. And if you go to http://mybaa.org/home.html - check out the first news story over to the right.
