Are we going to do a show this week?  I could round up some Boston people for you. 
Chris,

Sure!  You MC and Joe and or I will be happy to man the controls?  When's good for you and others floating on the post-Boston cloud?

I just wanted to chime in and say that I would love to hear something from people who did Boston.  My wife and I went down and were at Heartbreak Hill in time to see the elites go by, and then for a couple more hours with all of the people running past.  It was my first time in the city for the race.  It was a super cool spot to be in, and the crowd was incredible.  It would be so nice to hear about the rest of the course, and how it was for the runner's.

OK Folks - I put out an APB for Boston Runners on Facebook.  What's a good night for us to calendar this?  Thursday night at 8:00 Eastern works well for me. 
Chris,

Joe - Could you take-on the Timekeeper's role?  I'd do so but have a conflict that day, and as I don't have anything to add to the discussion having been 1300 miles away you're just as well suited as myself.)

Thanks,
Mark

I'm in Vegas this week, but could join in.  Having no warm weather training, this year's Boston was short of my goal.  The excitement and support of the crowds was incredible.  I was very excited to hear Meb won and how the other Americans worked together to help him.

Too soon - I came down with something yesterday (allergies?).  Let's shoot for a night next week.  I'm busy Tuesday night and traveling Wed night. 
What I'm going to do - once we have a time - is ask each participant to write down a 500 word summary of their Boston - then have them read it - then we'll go around for comments.   I think that will be a good show.  I wouldn't even mind going a little long.
