3rd Strike

In just three short years, I've earned (paid?) my way into NYC. 3 strikes, I'm out. They don't call it a "lottery" for nothing.

NYC 2009, here I come! Who's with me?

Maybe '09 will be my year, too. I got shut out again, but this is only my second strike. Sigh.

There's a lot to be said for certainty. Now you can plan for a wonderful day in NYC in the fall of 2009 (all except the wait in Fort Wadsworth part). Bridges, five boroughs, all the ethnic crowds, the start on Staten Island over the world's longest suspension span bridge (or it used to be--I watched the Verazzano Bridge being built when I was a child), the run down Fifth Avenue, the finish in Central Park, wow!

Anne said...

NYC '09 has a better ring to it anyway. Now you have all the time you need to train, right?

Hi Rich! If I can get into shape, I'll try to run NYC next year. But I gotta qualify for Boston first! You in for that?!

DawnB said...

Rae said...

I actually don't know anyone who got in....crazy!! I don't guess I'll be reading NYC race reports this year!

Black Knight said...

Only a dream for me. Will I be able to run again a marathon?

Sunshine said...

Appreciated you thoughtful comments. Good luck to the little Girl Scouts.

Too bad you didn't get in to NYC, but everything happens for a reason, right?!

I hope you guys have an awesome trip to Mexico...you are going next month, is that right? It is going to be HOT....I Love Hot!!!

Yvonne said...

aaw, sorry, but 2009 sounds like a plan. unfortunately that means i'll have to squeeze in 9 NYRR races and 1 volunteer day in the next 6 months to get in. but if nothing else, i'll definitely be there to cheer you on.

I thought it was automatic the third time. No? Fourth time is the make-good? Okay.

Well good luck with plan B.
