1. That sucks donkey ass!

On the bright side there are several other Boston qualifiers this year. If they ran one and would have gotten a qualifying time then they should enter another one. For most runners running a marathon isn't a "one and done" type thing. Once you've finished one marathon you keep training for the next one. They won't be eligible for Boston this year anyway, and it may take a couple of years after they qualify to be invited.

I finally qualified two years ago and I'm running it for the first time this year. I obviously don't stand a snowballs chance of winning so I'm just gonna take my time, be thankful for the opportunity, and make it a leisurely 26.2 mile run.
