Why would they be expired? Makes no sense! lol

And I think the bib stealers here were all non-qualifiers.    The wife of the FourSquare CEO ran the Nike 13.1 this morning. Entry is only by lottery unless you are Shalane, Joanie or near elite.  Wonder if she got in through the lottery like the rest of us or bought a bib (no transfers are allowed since it is a lottery).
speaking of Joanie, 2:52 this year! Geez
