I’m of course referring again to the Boston Marathon. Earlier this week I mentioned that the race filled to it’s ~26,000-runner capacity within eight hours of opening its online registration portal on Monday, and related this to a possible need for the BAA to tighten its qualifying standards. On the related topic of the respective qualifying times for women and men, I argue in an article for Running Times Online that while women’s are softer, this phenomenon pervades elite American distance running as well, and to a greater extent at that.
