Would Robert Cheruiyot of Kenya be able to get his 4th crown (2003, 2006, 2007 and 2008??)?
Would he be able to beat the all time Boston marathon course record (2:07:14) set by him back in 2006?
What about Lance Armstrong (7-time Tour de France Champion) running his first Boston?

Monday 21st April, 2008
Mobility Impaired Division start time: 9:00 a.m.
Wheelchair Division start time: 9:25 a.m.
Elite Women’s start time: 9:35 a.m.
Elite Men’s and Wave 1 start time: 10:00 a.m.
Wave 2 start time: 10:30 a.m.
Note: all time in Eastern Time Zone (Boston Time)

I don’t know about you.
But I will glue my a$$ to the chair from 10am to noon that day.
You can also watch it on webcast for free from 9:30am to 12:30am (Boston Time) which is Hong Kong time Monday night 9:30pm to 12:30am.


I have 3 friends running Boston this year.  I checked the entrants list, there are 4 Hong Kong runners qualified for this year’s event.

期待這場盛事。此乃是跑手們夢寐以求的馬拉松。
希望各參加者都可以創佳績。
我相信岩士唐可以做到2:40  (他的PB是2:46)

I think Armstrong can do it too.  I wonder who is pacing him this time?  Joan Samuelson paced with him at NYC last year.  I wonder if they allow that at Boston?

Armstrong said he won't be running faster than a 2:46 pace.  He will be averaging a 6.50 mile pace.  He only put in a 14 miler long run to prepare for this BM.

The men are doing a sub 2:06 pace!!!  They are all flying!!!!!!!  Wonder how they will do when climb up the notorious Heartbreak Hill.  Robert C is gaining speed and finally pulling away from the pack.  Hope his heart won't get broken later.

Yes, Robert Cheruiyot bib #1, the Keyan that won 03, 06 and 07.  He might set another BM record again.  I wonder how Armstrong is doing?  I forgot to track him on my cellphone.  The two women looking very storng, less than 2 miles for them.

Something rather interesting about the leading white woman.  She won last year's Honolulu marathon and I got an autograph from her and took a few pictures with her in Honolulu.  If she wins, I better frame the picture.
