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?

I gotta say, this thread has given me the first good belly laugh I've had in months! Thanks, Alan, and everyone else who contributed.
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.

Sounds like fun! But the Gallowalkers go at least 4 minutes before they walk!
Alan - make sure to have a smoke during your Gallowalks as well!
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
Thanks for the great laugh. I watched a race on and the person taking the video called the runner keeeping up with the elite guys "Joe Jogger".
<img alt="biggrin.gif" src=""> this is funny, even 4 days late!<br><br>
you need to wear a tutu!!
