I wasn’t selected for the New York City Marathon! They held the lottery today. I threw in my name, figuring my chances were slim. Their rules say if you are not selected for 3 years in a row, that on the 4th year you would automatically be in. So I figured I would start putting my name in to get the rejections rolling and run it in 2014.
I was a little nervous this morning that I would actually get selected. Which would have required some major rethinking of the stuff I already have on the agenda for October and November.
Getting rejected was a huge relief. The marathon gods are with me so far this year!
