It’s Official!

I am a registered entrant in the 112th Boston Marathon.  The e-mail arrived on Sunday.

Coincidentally, I had been wondering about my application and was searching the Boston Athletic Association web site for my name earlier in the day. Once in a while we do get those answers we seek serendipitously.

Here’s my invitation to this year’s Patriot’s Day Party:
