Hoping the 3rd time is NOT the charm

It's NYC Marathon lottery time!

I'm banking on all those who deferred their 2012 entry due to Hurricane Sandy and legit qualifiers to fill up most all the spots for 2013. If I can get just one more denial, my third, then I will be an automatic "in" for 2014!

It would be great to time-qualify (1:37 half, 3:25 full) in 2014 as well, but in the words of Billy Crystal, "It'll be a miracle!"

Think: 2014, 2014, 2014...

Please, NOT 2013, 2 months post-baby!


  1. But if you got in for 2013, couldn't you defer it to 2014?

    I wish we had the same system for the London marathon. You used to get in after 5 rejections, but now you just have to keep on entering the lottery... I'll put my name in the hat again for that next week!

  2. I hope you get your denial. Funny thing to wish for!

  3. OMG isn't this funny? I'm up for a third denial too. Really doubt we'll get in this year....

    1. At this rate, I feel like I will know everyone who is getting an automatic in for 2014. It will be quite a party!

  4. I keep thinking I WANT to get in this year... but I know so many who this is their third year (like me) and maybe it would be most fun if we all went next year??

    Why American men should not marry American women

    I am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don't know how to cook or clean, don't want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women?

    American women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least.

    This blog is my attempt to explain why I feel American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women), and why American men should boycott American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women.

    I encourage ALL American men to NEVER MARRY American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women.

    A few more reasons to stay away from American women?

    -30 percent of American women take psychiatric drugs.
    -25 percent of women under the age of 30 have at least one STD.
    -85 percent of divorces in America are INITIATED by women, thus women are responsible for the vast majority of divorces.
    -70 percent of criminals in America were raised by single mothers, thus feminism is responsible for most crime in America.

    If you want to get married, find a nice foreign girl from Asia, or South America, or Russia/Eastern Europe. DO NOT MARRY AN AMERICAN WOMAN UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES!

    Give American women the husband they deserve- NONE!


  6. I thought they announced last year that they are getting rid of the rule of 3 for guaranteed entry- those that had entered at a certain time might have been grandfathered, but it was no longer a sure thing anymore. Were you part of the grandfather?

  7. An impressive share! I've just forwarded this onto a friend who had been doing a little research on this. And he in fact ordered me lunch because I discovered it for him... lol. So let me reword this.... Thank YOU for the meal!! But yeah, thanx for spending time to discuss this matter here on your web page.

    my blog post

  8. I hope you get in! Good luck!

  9. So funny... cause I just talked with hubs about the same thing last week. Wanted to "put in" but didn't want to be picked. LOL!

  10. fingers crossed for both of us :)
