New York, New York………….

Cross your fingers for me this morning.  Today’s the day! Back in November, on my birthday to be exact, I got a little crazy on the computer.  I took a gamble and registered for the lottery for the New York City marathon.  They make the announcements this afternoon.  So, if I don’t get into New York City, what will it be?  I’m looking for a good fall marathon.  It’s the perfect time of year to run so why not torture oneself by running a full 26.2 miles …….. without stopping.  Ha!

Anyway, there are a number to choose from.  Will it be the Amica Marathon, the Philadelphia Marathon, or maybe even the old stand by the Mohawk Hudson River Marathon that is here local.

For this morning though, let’s be optimistic and think good NYC race thoughts.  Because not much compares to that race so I’ve got all 10 fingers crossed.  How about you? Are you in the lottery?

Check back to find out if I got in.  Until then we’re just waiting…………………………..

  1. Hi! I hope you get in to the NYC Marathon. If not, the Hartford Marathon is another one in the region that is worth considering. It is October 15 this year. It has the crowd feel of a big city marathon (not as big as NYC, of course!) with long stretches of beautiful scenery. Good luck!

  2. Fingers crossed you get into the NYCM. It’s my favorite marathon, hands-down. My hometown Chicago marathon is a close second, of course. A great spring/summer marathon is the Avenue of the Giants, in northern California. Anyway, good luck with whichever autumn marathon you end up running!

    I too am eagerly awaiting the draw results. Up until now, I’ve only run the Chicago marathon twice, so it’ll be nice to finish the distance in another giant city. Honestly, I’m not too optimistic, as the odds of getting in by lottery get lower every year. But hey, there are tons of other big city races out there to satiate your running appetite. Regrettably, Chicago is sold out already, but there’s always Twin Cities (10/2), Rock ‘n Roll Denver (10/9), Marine Corps (10/30), Philadelphia (11/20), Seattle (11/27), and many others. Good luck!
