Boston Athletic AssociationI knew that the Boston Marathon was going to close early this year. In fact, I expected it to close between Christmas and the New Year and no longer allow entrants in the same year as the race for the first time in race history.

I was only partially right, however. Registration for the marathon closed yesterday, November 13th. It is the first time I have ever seen it close earlier than late January.

So, if you are registered for the race, congratulations! If you delayed registering, then what race are you going to run?
