Phew! What a relief! I'm already registered for two marathons this year (and I have not run even one yet!). My plan is to get denied for the next two years (during which time I'll have a little brother for Baby F) then I'll get the "gimme" entry in 2014.
Unless, of course, the Gods come down and make me really freaking fast and I qualify with a 3:23 full or 1:37 half. Yeah, not likely.
I found out today, along with Elizabeth, TMB, Becca, Endorphin Dude, Carla, The Studly Runner, The Running Mama, others that I didn't get a lottery ticket into the NYC Marathon. But part of my plan DIDN'T work.
My friend, KC, applied with the same idea that we'd get denied, denied, denied for three years then we'd run it together in 2014 (we ran the NYC Half in 2007 together). But of all the luck,
SHE GOT IN!
If the stars align, I'd love to go out and cheer her on.
