New York City Marathon
I found out yesterday that my name was drawn in the New York City Marathon lottery. I couldn't be more excited! With more than 100,000 applicants and "only" 40,000 runners accepted, some people try for years to get in.
If you have any interest in running at all, I'd really encourage you to take a shot at running a marathon. It's not as hard as it sounds, I promise. You'll be in the best shape of your life, you'll meet great people (like the folks at Capital Striders), and you'll have a lot of fun.
