I am the tortoise

I just entered the lottery for the NYC marathon this year. Which way to the asylum?
I signed up for running classes which I will be attending every Thursday evening for the next 9 weeks. I need to learn how to stretch and how to train with sorness and... more running stuff.

Should I actually get picked to race this year, this will be the sign that will be held up for me. In no way shape or form am I physically ready to run a marathon BUT I am very enthused. That counts for something, right?! I've heard from friends that the sheer energy of this race is what ultimately gets you through it. Even if you've had minimal training. I'm counting on it.

  1. Good luck! What an amazing experience - I didn't realize they had to have a lottery for people to run!
