But, I'm determined to be marathon deflowered this year. I'm currently registered for:
Seattle Rock & Roll Marathon (June 2011)
Portland Marathon (October 2011)
And I just did this, because ok seriously, I've lost it...
I'm counting on the fact that a) I'll really like training for and running marathons, and b) I won't get lucky enough to be drawn for 2011. I'm thinking I will keep applying for the next three marathons so that I get an automatic "in" for 2014. A good friend is also applying for the lottery. Wish we could tie our registrations together so we could go out to NYC at the same time (we ran the NYC Half Marathon together in Aug2007). Hopefully we'll both get rejected for 3 years then we'll be an automatic in at the same time!
And in other news, I've been wondering about how to keep up with Tall Mom, SUAR, and others, like heroine Kara Goucher, running Boston on Monday and found out that I can skip my morning workout and do some work-work while keeping up with the race:
And for those interested in the proper way to do an ice bath, check out Elizabeth @ Running for Bling. She kindly posted an "Ice Bath 101" instruction. I will follow her directions next time!
