Who's running and who's spectating? I'm running and I want to meet up with all of you for a big party. I'm thinking about getting a hotel room near Boston and staying over on Monday night too. Usually I get a hotel room near the start (logistically easier and cheaper) but if we're going to have a big get together in Boston then I'll stay closer to the city.<br><br>
Sign in here. Who's going and wants to meet up for food, drink and debauchery?

I am running!<br><br>
My travel plans are still a bit up in the air as to arrival, departure dates. I have a hotel booked pretty close to the finish and the T but am not married to the idea of keeping it if a more affordable option opens up ... I need to look into all this actually.<br><br>
I know I want to watch the Women's trials and spend quality time with my parents who are coming out to see me, but I hope to be able to make a meet up too. It's going to be a busy and fun weekend.

I'm in, too. <img alt="banana.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/banana.gif"><br><br>
My local running group normally does a short run on Sunday meeting at the finish line (not the Freedom Run.) We meet for a group photo under the finish line and for a short run around the Boston Common and such. I imagine though, that the Women's OT will dictate the availability of Boylston St on Sunday.<br><br>
Does anyone know what time the OT race starts? It's not listed on the website yet. I imagine that that will dicate our Sunday schedules.<br><br>
I guess that KR will be well represented in Boston this year. <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">

I'm registered but not sure if I'm going to make the trip this year, still thinking about it. Logistically it is one of the more difficult races for me. I'm pacing a group two weeks later so if I go I'll treat it like a training run.

I'll be back this coming April.<br><br>
Last April I took it easy, high-fived at least a thousand people along the course and kissed TEN Wellesley girls, finishing a little under 4:00.<br><br>
Planning to run it hard this next time - just finishing the 6th week of Pfitz 24/70 plan and feeling good.<br><br>

No - didn't even see that - maybe I <b>won't</b> run for time this year - middle aged guys like me don't get to many college co-ed kissing opportunities you know! <img alt="banana.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/banana.gif"><br><br>
Oh yeah, two of my ten were really old ladies down at the very end of the line - too old to even be faculty I would think - and they were definitely surprised to get kisses! <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"><br><br>

Roots, I don't think they've posted the start time for Trials yet.

I will be there, too. Not registered yet, but have a friend in Boston where i can stay, so there is no hurry to make plans, esp. since I can drive to Boston.

Come on, fox-runr! You "know" all of us, no need to wait for anyone ...<br><br>
Yes! Good luck, Liam! The idea of meet-ups and such was a motivation for me in my qualifying race; hopefully it will be for you, too.<br><br>
That's right! Even more reason to spectate. This is exciting.
