I want Bush to win as badly as anybody but I really can't fault Kerry if he can't remember the exact year in which he ran the Boston Marathon. It might be a different story though if had he claimed to have the Boston Marathon but, in fact, had not.
Well, there's no evidence that Kerry ever ran in ANY Boston Marathon. The burden should be on Kerry to prove that he did as he said and isn't just running his mouth again.

Exactly. Anyone who had successfully completed the challenge (and agony) of running 26.2 miles would remember the year and their time. Completing a marathon (especially one as famous as Boston) is a memorable event, verging on life-changing for some. Heck, even runners who have completed multiple marathons over the years can probably tell you the date and their time for any given race.
