Would Robert Cheruiyot of Kenya be able to get his 5th crown (03, 06, 07, 08, 09???)?  Would he be able to beat his all time Boston Marathon course record (2:07:14) set by him in 2006?  He finished 1st place last year with a time of 2:07:46.  Another runner to look for is American runner Ryan Hall.  He is the only American runner that breaks the one hour barrier in half marathon (59:43).  His best full marathon time is 2:06:17 set in London last year.  No Lance Armstrong this year.

In the elite women scene, the runner to look for is Dire Tune of Ethiopia.  Tune won the Boston Marathon last year with a time of 2:25:25.  Another runner to look for is American runner Kala Goucher.  Her BQ time is 2:25:53 set in New York City Marathon in 2008.

You can watch it LIVE on webcast starting from 9pm (20th) Hong Kong time.

Armstrong is not running the BM this year.  He is currently training for the TDF.  He said last week that he thinks the French officials will ban him from this summer's event due to a recent report stating he violated protocol during a recent drug test.  BUT he is planning on doing the New York City Marathon in November.

The french guys do not like Armstrong and said Lance had won TDF due to drug, but they do not have evidence.
Anyway, Armstrong is a living legend!

Lance Armstrong 曾經客串過電影 Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story 一角, 做回佢自已幾分鐘. 以下係佢幾句對白. 係佢在機場見到主角 Peter La Fleur 講的, 當時 Peter 想退出比賽, 結果Lance Armstrong 就講左以下幾句對白,  作為一個運動員, 都幾發人深醒

Lance Armstrong: Hey, aren't you Peter La Fleur?


Peter La Fleur: Lance Armstrong!


Lance Armstrong: Ya, that's me. But I'm a big fan of yours


Peter La Fleur: Really?


Lance Armstrong: Ya, I've been watching the dodgeball tournament on the ocho. ESPN 8. I just can't get enough of it. Good luck in the tournament. I'm really pulling for you against those jerks from Globo gym. I think you better hurry up or you're gonna be late.


Peter La Fleur: Uh, actually I decided to quit... Lance.


Lance Armstrong: Quit? You know, once I was thinking of quitting when I was diagnosed with brain, lung and testicular cancer all at the same time. But with the love and support of my friends and family, I got back on the bike and won the Tour de France 5 times in a row. But I'm sure you have a good reason to quit. So what are you dying of that's keeping you from the finals?


Peter La Fleur: Right now it feels a little bit like... shame.


Lance Armstrong: Well, I guess if a person never quit when the going got tough, they wouldn't anything to regret for the rest of their life. Well good luck to you Peter. I'm sure this decision won't haunt you forever.

I understand the Boston requires qualification to be considered as this is an elite race.

But how come there are people finishing around 4:30 to 5 hours?

I heard there are "invited" runners as I follow Steve Runner's podcast closely. So how does one being invited, under what criteria.

I don't think I will ever be qualified, (4:30 in this year's SCM FM...but hoping to go sub4 next week with more consistent training!)

Anyway, still interested to know.

Hi Left3 hing ~

You can run Boston too if you sign up with a charity.  Boston Marathon has a charity program (see the link).  Not only 5 hours, I have seen runners cross the line just under 6 hrs.  And there are also runners that train hard to BQ but once they get in, they want to take their time throughout the course and treat it as a fun run and enjoy it.  Afterall the BQ time is only good for two years.
