Yes, this may sound crazy. As much as I am dying to run, there is one race I actually don’t want to run…yet. I had to apply to get into the NYC Marathon this year. I was grandfathered in the “3 times denied and it’s an automatic entry on your 4th” and this is my 3rd year. I’m really hoping I get in next year.
I honestly don’t know where I will be physically in November. I have no idea if my body will be capable of running 26.2 then. BUT, if I get in, I will find a way to make a fall marathon happen. I will also find out if this is happening on Wednesday. I hate to say I’m crossing my fingers that it doesn’t happen…until 2014!
Instead of marathons, I am ready to start thinking about 1/2 marathons in the fall. I’m hoping to do one race with Allison again and relive our sisters race weekend from RNR Las Vegas in 2010. Other than that, I’d love to find some travel partners!!
I’ve thought about:
The Detroit Free Press 1/2 Marathon (10/20)
RNR Denver 1/2 Marathon (10/20). Don’t really do want to do a RNR race, but I have too many friends in Denver to race anywhere else.
The Baltimore 1/2 and ING Hartford 1/2 are both my birthday weekend…not sure about that yet (10/12).
Obviously I’m pretty open to anything, as long as it’s a new state!
Where are you racing this fall?? Did you apply to get into the NYC Marathon?
Do you have any fall 1/2 marathons planned? Want to join me?
