My wife Kate qualified for, and registered for, Boston this year. However, her much needed shoulder surgery got moved up and she won't be able to run. If there is anybody running this year who would be willing to pick up her packet at the same you pick up yours, she would be extremely grateful. It stinks having to lose the entry fee, but getting the packet (with the shirt and other goodies) would take some of the sting out of not running this year.
We'll be at either of the happy hours this week, or more than happy to bring her card by wherever it is convenient for whomever is willing to help us out. If you'll be at the happy hour, there will definitely be drinks in exchange;)

Tim, make sure you check the website and see what are the requirements for packet pick-up. It's been six years since I've run there and things may have changed.
We double checked and the only thing they need is the entry card with their name and Kate's signature.
The packet is definitely worth it.
I think she may be able to get a medical deferrment. I think she will need to photocopy her id and sign the waiver card.
I can pick up her packet. malissazimmerman at hotmail.com
That is awesome Malissa! I'll have Kate email you tomorrow.
