It just occurred to me, what if Kip has been registered for Boston 2012 only as a ruse, so some folks on LetsRun get preoccupied with trying to find him there (to monitor him) only to come up empty handed?
There's a good chance that might happen. It happened at CowTown Marathon in Fort Worth, TX.[/quote]
Wrong. I couldn't line anybody up to monitor him & the Cowtown officials were unwilling to do anything either. They said they'd rely on their enroute timing mats as a 'monitor'. That's their prerogative.
Interestingly, I received an email from Kip only minutes before the start of the Cowtown race, telling me he'd suffered an injury 2 days before and wouldn't be running in Ft Worth. I thought timing of his note to be yet another behaviorial stunt. And, of course, was happy nobody was wasting their time looking for him race day!
