I am excited to say the least!!! This is the year of the marathon and I always wanted my first marathon to be the NYC marathon so when I found out that my “guaranteed entry” was not guaranteed because NYRR couldn’t find my 2008 entry I was upset 🙁 I always said my firs would be NYC but I also said 2012 would be the year I would run my first marathon, I mean if the world is going to end in December I at least want to run one marathon before it does so I resigned myself to the fact the NYC may not be my first.
I entered the lottery with the hopes of getting in but I ket my expectations low because I have entered this lottery 7 times over the last 12 years and have never gotten in so I just expected the worst until I saw this:
I was out to dinner with Chris when I found out and I was so excited and he was excited for me but our conversation actually went something like this:
- Chris: You know you have to run 26.2 miles?
- Me: Yes, I can do it!!! I have run 13.1 so I just double that!!!
- Chris: It is 26.2 miles, I am not sure you should be this excited.
- Me: I can do it!!!!
I can do this!!! My goal time has always been 4 hours but at this point I just want to finish!!! Let the training begin!!!!!!!!
What race are you excited about doing his year??
