Almost Lottery Day

If you have ever talked to me about marathons then you know it’s no secret that one of my bucket list goals is to run a marathon in each of the 50 states. But not just any marathon, the best marathons! There are many great races around the country but there are a few races that are a “must do”. I know that for the state of New York there is only one race that justifies the trip. The New York City Marathon. The race was difficult to get into in years past & has only been made more difficult since the cancellation of the race in 2012.

For 2014 the lottery opened the day after Thanksgiving with a Black Friday special of $5 entry as opposed to the normal $11. Since then I have been anxiously awaiting lottery day to see if I’m selected to run in November. I have been watching the New York Road Runners countdown all week and tomorrow is the day that names are drawn.

Best of luck to everyone waiting for that email!


QOTD: Did you enter the lottery? Have you made it in before?
