Shut Down

25 Apr

I spent all day checking my email, my credit card account and the ING New York City Marathon registration page to see if I would be training through a hot, sweltering summer for the ING New York City Marathon this year.

Sadly, I finally got this message:

Shut down for the 2012 New York City Marathon

Well darn. This is like the time I didn’t make the cheerleading squad, without the awful cartwheels.

Since the Flying Pig Marathon is but  days away (11 to be exact), I’m going to wait to decide on my next race until then, but I see lots of half marathons in my future. These poor legs of mine need a rest.

Have you ever put your name in for the New York City Marathon lottery and if so, did you get selected?

On a side note, the marathon lottery tweets that said “May the odds be ever in your favor” had me chuckling today.
