Heartbreak, Boston style.

It was the best of times..
...it was the worst of times.

Today, it was official: despite breaking 3:55, Guylaine's Boston Marathon Qualifying time did not hold up against the "cut-off". This year, due to higher than normal applications, the BAA had to enforce a stricter cut-off than last year. It was 2 minutes and 28 seconds (versus 1 minute and 2 seconds last year). Guylaine had 1 minute and 8 seconds "in-hand".

We had a feeling it might not work out this year. Oh well. Next time(?)
