I had a good little 4 mile run outside today. Which is a good thing because this morning I entered the New York Marathon lottery.
I’ve won a lot of things in my day. These include a board game, a pig race, a bike, a giant black dildo, the Cherry Blossom lottery, and more than 50% of the bingo games I’ve ever played. That’s right, I’m pretty lucky.
So I’m afraid my odds are pretty good. I’ve already complained about getting up and taking shuttles to the start of a race. And I hate crowds. But hey, this is New York. Everyone has to do it once, and this might be my brother’s last year in the city (ok, probably not, but still).
Now we wait. They’ve moved the drawing up from June to March this year, which is good if I was thinking about doing a back up race like Chicago, which sells out in April–and I was. (Registration for my other fall race contenders, Marine Corps and Steamtown, opens in April.)
