It's official, all the hard work I have put in over the past 2 years to qualify and run Boston will not be paying off in the end. I will be pulling out of the Boston Marathon.
My only question is, how do I do so? Do I just email the BAA telling them I am pulling out of the race and request them to send me my shirt? I know I do not get my bib, but for a $150 registration fee, I think I deserve my shirt! My brother in-law told me to ask them if I can deferre but I already saw under the FAQ's that as of 2011, they no longer deferre registrations to the following year.
I've never had to pull out of a race before, especially one of this caliber, so I am not 100% certian how to go about it.
