Should I bandit Boston?

so I'm thinking about doing Boston as a bandit this year. i have been training for a marathon at the end of May but I feel I'm at a peak in my training right now, and I'm not sure I can hold it another 8 weeks. I've been training with a friend who is doing Boston so my schedule has been a little like his.<br><br>
I feel I can do a comfortable 3:10 so I won't embarass myself.<br><br>
Anyone tried this? I can make a pretty good replica of his bib on the computer and as long as we don't run right next to each other we should be OK.<br><br>
Should I do it?

OK - so I got 3 responses before someone noticed the calendar. <img alt="banana.gif" src=""><br><br>
and good luck to those who are running Boston, I will see you in 2009.
excellent question. obviously it needs to be some that completely block out all sound. that way i wont be able to hear the race director yelling at me for being a bandit.<br><br>
i was also thinking about jumping in about mile 5, so i don't have to deal with the hassles of the start etc.
i was gonna go thru the finish line 2 or 3 times to make sure i get a good shot.
pink? it may clash with my orange jog bra. but sure, i'll give it a shot.
Laugh!? it started as a joke but I'm loving all these ideas and am now seriously considering it!<br><br>
Can't you just picture me jumping into corral 1, in a pink skirt, orange jog bra, Yankee's hat, NY Giants scarf, 18-1 sign, headphones, fuel belt, spiras, poorly photocopied bib and then sprinting off at breakneck speed to gert on TV when the gun goes off, only to start my gallowalking after 400 metres.
i dont think i can do 4 minutes at the sub 5 minute pace required to stay in the front so it needs to be just 400m
