I understand it's a long shot to get in thru the lottery but for some reason I really, really believed it was gonna happen.
I went in to celebrate the opening day today in Central Park.
It was a beautiful day and I was surrounded by 300 other running nerds / NYC marathon hopefuls:
|pick me! Or not :'(|
|116 - not a winner|
|No I'm not. Took this picture full of hope|
I went to the gym and pounded a speedy 3 miles to get out the post-no-good marathon news depression. It helped.
Last year was the last year you can get denied 3 years in a row and gain automatic entry. This was my first year - so I have no future net.
Did you get in?
What's your dream race?
Have you ever been crushed by not getting into a dream race?
