RE: Wired's Nicholas Thompson on Boston: "It’s a terrible course if you want a personal best." Agree or Disagree
Boston Best - 2:44:16
Personal Best - 2:25:17
So, Boston is 19 minutes slow.
(Nevermind that the times were run 5.5 years apart and the Boston performance was a 4 minute PR)
In all seriousness, this doesn’t need to be a discussion. Boston is not a PR course. Plain and simple. If you get a strong tailwind, a PR is possible. Maybe even likely with a 2011 like typhoon. That would be true on most point-to-point courses with reasonable elevation changes though.
