    1. there is no mention of a guaranteed entry for veterans; is there still a guaranteed entry for veterans, and what are the dates for that,

    2. how many marathon entrants ACTUALLY STARTED the 2013 marathon

    Where can I find out of how many Houston marathons that my husband, Peter Bennett, had ran so I know to register for him via early registration or by lottery?. Thanks.
