Today is the 114th running of the Boston Marathon. I am reminded of this because I've started receiving race alerts via text message for a runner named Jen Stronge. So has Laura.
I wish Jen Stronge all the luck in the world in finishing strong in the marathon this morning. But I never signed up to get her alerts, and I wish they would stop. My guess is that she has the same chip number that Laura had last year, and the fine IT staff of the Boston Marathon never cleared out the alert requests from last year's race. Which makes them, for today anyway, some of the dumbest fucks in the tech industry.
To repeat, Boston Marathon IT crewyou suck.
UPDATE: It's the bib number that's the same as Laura's from last year18649. A dumb, dumb programming mistake, friends. And who's paying for all those bad text messages?
