Well, against all odds, this lucky little devil was chosen in the lottery to run the ING New York City Marathon.
When I registered, I had no intention of running the race. Like many, I'm sure, I just wanted to get my first ticket punched in case I wanted to do it 4 years from now since after being refused 3 years in a row, you're automatically in. But you know, that's all fine and good until you're actually chosen and then you just get excited and then you just decide, I'M GONNA DO IT!!!
Funny thing, the actual e-mail must have just gone to my trash because I had no idea. It really hasn't been on my mind. I was chatting with Bill over Yahoo and he said, "Congratulatons!" I was like, what? He told me I was chosen. I think at first, he was more excited than I was but that didn't last long. Once I entertained the thought even slightly, it was a done deal. What clinched it for me was the prospect of making it a family vacation. So, if we can afford it, I think that's what we're going to do.
So, let me go work on my training plan. Later!
