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.
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
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?
Congrats on getting in! I’ll be a first time MCM runner this year too – and had already scheduled a half the weekend before! Good luck and see you out there! DC is amazing, so it should be a great time!!
I think it is going to be so cool to run through DC. Excited, nervous, and just can’t believe I got in.
Somebody finally put it into words! Good luck
Thanks. It definitely was a shock. The shock is starting to wear off and now I’m thinking about what needs to be done.
