What Was I Thinking?

So I had a little shock this morning!   I wasn’t expecting it in the very least.   Everyone said it was so hard to get into and as my marathon lottery luck in the past left me high and dry, I had no expectations this time around.   I wasn’t even paying attention to the lottery.   I, actually, forgot about the lottery!   Then  a funny thing happened when I was checking my email this morning.   I found out that I got in.  I looked at the email.   I put the phone down and walked away because I knew I wasn’t seeing right.   I had some coffee.   I looked again and found out I was still in it.


Holly Smokes!!!!

I was not planning on running a marathon this year.



But This says differently


Now this is not to say that I haven’t thought about it, but I really, really, really wasn’t planning to run one.   I never imagined that I would get to this race.   To say I was shocked is a bit of an understatement.   For those who saw my first post today, you will know this to be true,   I didn’t even finish it!!!

So maybe my luck is changing.   Either way, I guess I’m running a marathon.   Good thing I front loaded my NYRR races and will only have to do two in the fall.   Although, when I looked ahead to October this is the schedule that I have:

October 4th – Paine to Pain HM

October 11th – NYRR Staten Island HM

October 18th – Superhero HM

October 25th – Marine Corps 40th Marathon

Holly Smokes!

Breathe,  Breathe, and Breathe some more.

It will all work out.   I’ve always wanted to go to DC and this will be a lovely way to see it.

Now all I need to do is tell Dear Hubby tonight:)

Time to go inhale some calming lavender!

Has this happened to you?
