  • To follow all the answers and questions plus keeping everyone in the loop use #BartChat on your tweets #
  • I've been to the Boston Marathon every year since 1982 so I am heading back for my 29th visit to the Boston Marathon #BartChat #
  • It's a great reference to study this prestigious course Mile-by-mile #BostonMarathon course tips: http://ow.ly/4jICX #BartChat #
  • @TFFlyer The BAA has owned the race since 1897 #BartChat It's been that way in the past-maybe some of the new changes will help the future #
  • @ToddAnthony For your 1st one you should try to BQ. If you run a negative split the Boston course can be fast & a BQ race #BartChat #
  • @mikeberta My goal back in 1981 was to run 2:50 to get in Boston. In 1982 the BQ standard for open was 2:50, that was my incentive #BartChat #
  • @TFFlyer Yes 128, 100% Heartbreak is a series of hills and if you don't go out too quickly you don't even notice they're there #BartChat #
  • @runnernavymom I was only 5 when I did Boston the first time. OK I'm joking I was a young lad of 27 #BartChat #
  • @TheCranberryKid Nobody knows for sure but my guess would be it will sell out at the 10 minute standard. http://ow.ly/4jIxE #BartChat #
  • @amyk262 Thanks for being part of the #rwchallenge I think you will be back. You may not BQ in Boston but maybe a fall marathon #BartChat #
  • @TFFlyer I agree-nobody knows for sure we will see how it shakes out over the next few years.The standards were tough when I did it#BartChat #
  • @ToddAnthony I will be there. I might be on the course at about mile 25.5 on the right hand side of the road for the high 5 #BartChat #
  • @mikeberta not sure what you mean by your question but my best BQ was in Boston 2:40 #BartChat #
  • Video: #BostonMarathon course tour w/ race director Dave McGillivray http://ow.ly/4jIRG Helpful info #BartChat #
  • @TFFlyer totally agree. The earlier start has made a big difference. Race started in the noon time sun for over 100 years. #BartChat #
  • @amyk262 @ToddAnthony It can be fun to get out of the Boston groove and try other marathons around the world #BartChat #
  • @mikeberta got you. For me it was definitely CIM in Sacramento CA. I ran 2:42 there at age 43, that course has to be fast #BartChat #
  • @TFFlyer In Boston 1983 it was around 2500 runners were sub-3 in the race and the race only had about 5500 runners #BartChat #
  • I'm very excited I've coached a lot of runners thru our #rwchallenge program running Boston. @RWchallenge: http://ow.ly/4jIjQ #BartChat #
  • @amyk262 @ToddAnthony to be a good 50 stater you can't repeat a lot of states. I've done something like 45 marathons in CA #BartChat #
  • @fastestfruit they only allow oranges and kiwis into Boston. #BartChat #
  • @fastestfruit Just kidding – bananas are perfect in Boston – love my potassium #BartChat #
  • @TheCranberryKid No I think the standards set are going to stick around for a few years.They need to go easy on those older AG 70+ #BartChat #
  • @ToddAnthony @amyk262 Sorry we won't see you in Big Sur. I'm coaching a few runners doing Boston and Big Sur 13 days apart. #BartChat #
  • @aaericks I don't run the race any more but I go there to coach and cheer on 25,000 runners every year. It's special every time #BartChat #
  • The greatest changes @ Boston that I have witnessed has been the % of women running the race.Women did not officially run til 1972 #BartChat #
  • @TheCranberryKid When the winners cross the finish-the wheelchair athletes-1st woman& 1st male. Nothing like seeing that up close #BartChat #
  • @amyk262 @ToddAnthony Work can get in the way of running.I feel very lucky to work at Runners World connecting with runners #BartChat #
  • @fastestfruit Get on the first banana boat and get your butt over the pond! The TSA guys frown on fruit on airplanes #BartChat #
  • @Josh_Runs Driving is hard on the legs, especially hamstrings.You have to light stretch pre drive & a more extensive stretch after #BartChat #
  • @aaericks My 1st Boston was 1982 known as the duel in the sun, Beardsley & Salazar.Still one of the most compelling finishes ever #BartChat #
  • I will be easy to find Boston race weekend at the Runners World booth or the seminar room. Please stop by and say hello. #BartChat #
  • @ToddAnthony @amyk262 It is the Superbowl of marathons – you better be psyched #BartChat #

  • @LShane262 Sub 2:40 @ Boston I would be going thru the 1/2 @ 1:22 running that 2nd 1/2 in 1:17ish. Hold back in those early miles #BartChat #
