I was so excited when I woke up on March 26 and knew that this was the day to receive notification if I would be running the NYC Marathon on November 2. I know it’s silly, but these are the kinds of things that help make the long cold days a little more exciting. So I checked my emails throughout the day, checked in with Facebook and logged into my NYRR.org account, and even checked my bank account for a pending charge. But it wasn’t looking like anything was happening for me.
Then after my run I saw that many of my friends and fellow runners were getting their notification and most of them were going. I checked my NYRR.org account to see this sad news:
After a few minutes of disappointment I decided oh well! I guess I have to pick a different marathon to do that month. I knew that Philadelphia had some good reviews and that lined up better with my training plan for the 2015 Dopey races that I want to participate in. So I put the word out there to my Facebook account and several other runner friends of mine are going to Philadelphia so I’ll have friends to hook up with there! Here’s Jennifer Tara’s thoughts on Philadelphia!
Registration opens up on April 1 so I will make my decision soon and then plan a new marathon for November! NYC is not over for me, I am considering going down there to see my friends and cheer them on for marathon morning. That way I can still experience the excitement of the NYC marathon and get my bearings for when my day does come!
