So far, my plan is working out. Denied by NYC marathon lottery in 2011 and again in 2012. Now, I just need to get denied in 2013. Then, I will get my automatic "buy" in 2014! By then, I should be done with baby #2 (not pregnant yet) and my BFF in NYC will be ready to run it with me too by 2014. I'm hoping Becca and Elizabeth will be on the same schedule.
Now that I know for sure about NYC, I'm contemplating joining Kim for a crazy east coast double-header. She is registered & ticket bought for a Saturday half in NJ and Sunday half in DE in late October. It would be a blast of a girl's weekend. The only thing holding me back is...yes...the fact that I'm not running right now due to this damned plantar fasciitis. Should I do it anyway? What deadline should I set to decide, knowing that airfare is affordable right now and race registration could fill up...?
Nuun Hood to Coast teams. Of course, it's a let-down to not get accepted for something that you've applied for, and I swear I'm not just saying this because I wasn't selected, but I really am a bit relieved. Primarily because...I CAN'T RUN right now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It would have really stressed me out to have people counting on me when I'm totally uncertain about myself.
As for the whole Nuun Hood to Coast thing, I was surprised they picked so many of last year's runners but shocked, and frankly pissed, about three people (2 locals & 1 Midwesterner) who didn't get picked. I have no right to be angry since it's all just a game but it just didn't make sense considering the other repeats. It would be interesting to know what the inside scoop was.
On the flip side, I'm incredibly excited about the new peeps who got selected, particularly Elizabeth (because I'll get to see her again when she comes to Seattle for HTC and I hope she comes early) and the Seattle ladies: Ricole & Zoe.
I'm hoping to be running "soon," whatever that means. I've been going nuts, almost literally, for not running. The weather has gotten nice and it's time to RUN SEATTLE. Cycling is great but I miss my running.
I have yet to hear about my entry into the 2Toms Third Annual Worst Blister Contest. There are some nasty looking feet up there but hoping I "get" to be the poster child for nastiness.
A girl's gotta have dreams, que no?
Ok, way behind on work and even further behind on reading race reports from this past weekend. Isn't it my Friday (Thursday) yet?
