Boston Qualifying:

You had to beat your Boston Qualifier (BQ) time by 2 minutes and 9 seconds to get into the 2017 Boston Marathon, according to the press release that came out today. That's just slightly more forgiving than the 2 minutes, 28 seconds required for the 2016 Boston Marathon, but still tougher than the 1 minute, 2 seconds or faster for the 2015 Boston Marathon, or 1 minute, 38 seconds for the 2014 Boston Marathon.

Here's the breakdown:

4,357 Qualifiers met their qualifying time by 20 minutes, 00 seconds or faster.
7,105 Qualifiers met their qualifying time by 10 minutes, 00 seconds or faster.
6,845 Qualifiers met their qualifying time by 05 minutes, 00 seconds or faster.
4,497 Qualifiers met their qualifying time by 02 minutes, 09 seconds or faster.
410 Qualifiers were accepted based on finishing 10 or more consecutive Boston Marathons.

XC speedwork: 10 hard repeats of a nasty hill (about 65 seconds today) + WU/CD for 10K. This sort of workout exposes the fact that I'm twice the age of the young speedsters, but if I'm not chasing them, they don't work as hard.
