A few weeks back, I wanted to win the lottery. Not the kind of lottery where you hope to win money. That would be too easy! You know the kind I'm talking about....the kind of lottery where YOU do the paying. My wallet is ready and I'm going to do just that because.....
I'M ALL IN FOR THE CHICAGO MARATHON!! Can you hear me screaming it from the rooftops? I'm SO excited!!
Today I knew the emails were going out. I was obsessively checking email early this morning and then I stopped. I went from totally obsessed to practically depressed. I didn't want to know, but yet I did.
After lunch, Twitter started to show some #ChiMarathon excitement. People were getting emails. As for me, nothing. After awhile, I couldn't take it any longer. I logged into the Athlete Center and my status changed to "approved."
I was excited to see the change, but yet I wanted the email. Certainly this was a good thing, but to me the email was the official word. And this afternoon, I finally received it!
It's such an exciting time in the running community. So many familiar faces will be there. And we all have a common purpose...to run the streets of Chicago! This will be my 2nd marathon. I'll be traveling there with the hubs and making one heck of a racecation out of this trip.
Bye bye summer, hello marathon training! Will I see you there? Have you ever entered a race lottery before and got in?
