I did not hit the Lottery

For the 2nd year in a row I did not get into the New York City Marathon. But I'm hopefull that next year will be my lucky year. Well its of to Philly in November for me again. I ran in the rain not once but twice today. Should I be proud, no not really because the 2nd time out my two week old running shoes is ruin.

I did the XC series on Tuesday in Waveny park. I felt good although I'd ran 8 miles that morning. Before the race we were told that the course is about 2.5-2.6miles. My garmin measured 2.55 so I was really happy with my results. That is until I actually saw the posted results. The distance was changed to 2.2. My point of view if you tell a crowd of people one thing stick to it, if only to make them feel good about themselves . Deep down I do want the truth though. I guess for the first race of the series I should not be too beat up about it. Last year I did not do any of the races because of family obligations so this is kind of feeling like my first time running trails again. Well for almost 24 hours I thought I ran a great race. And that is all I will remember.( I have my garmin to prove it :)

Sorry you didn't make it in. After two or three tries you get a gaurenteed entry though, don't you?
