It's bullshit what the BAA has decided.
So It appears that because dr kip litton used charlotte Thunderroad as a BQ and he wasn't DQ there,, that performance is treated as legit by the BAA...despite other racers at charlotte emailing the RD saying kip cut the course..Kippy waited 5mins to cross the starting line, disappears off the course but still hit all the mats at Charlotte, walks across the finish Line in 2:55 net time, good time for a 50 yr old like Dr Littonhttp://kiplitton.blogspot.com/2010/12/kip-litton-at-charlotte-marathon-dec.html
So who's to blame for KIP being admitted to the Boston Marathon?
Disappointment #1 - race director at CHarlotte ThunderRoad marathon, should have DQ kip
Disappointment #2 - BAA's lack of common sense. This guy is a serial Marathon cheater. Failure to realize he cheated in prior BAA races as well e.g. Baa 5k 2010
