Interview with B.A.A.'s Morse A Must See

Hey, Illinois runners, if you haven't seen it yet, the interview with B.A.A. Boston Marathon executive director Guy Morse on the B.A.A. web site regarding what has transpired this week is very good and worth viewing. It is 7 minutes 56 seconds in length and really presents the picture of what is going on very well. Look for a larger field and tighter standards next year. Morse is a man of great integrity and wants what is best for running and runners. Take a look. It is a lengthy link address, but here it is if you don't go directly to the B.A.A. site.

Watched the video. Thanks for posting. Mr. Morse mentions one big difference that contributed to the speed that qualifiers signed up for Boston: The fact that they moved the first day of registration from September (last year) to October (this year). This moved it until after the Chicago Marathon and a few others, so there were more "fresh" qualifiers in the mix this year than last.
