“If you never did you should. These things are fun and fun is good”
Ok so the Nike Women's Marathon (San Francisco) Random Draw opened yesterday. It is pretty exciting since I have been stalking their website since missing the 2008 drawing (2007 & 2009 I was nice and preggo so no marathons for me). Any hoo, I registered, and now I must wait. Wait. Wait. And did I mention W-A-I-T. I am terribly impatient, but I guess I can wait until the end of the month...ahem I have to other choice. While I appreciate the concept of a random draw, I will be so very disappointed if I do not get in. So disappointed in fact that I am not sure I am interested in doing any other marathon's this year. I have only completed one, San Diego Rock n Roll 2006 and I am positive that I can do better. Maybe the California International Marathon in December if I don't get into the NWM, but I have signed up for this one before (see the missed 2008 year), but didn't run because I didn't keep up my training through to December. I think there might be a trail half in October, I'll have to research. A trail half might be a good alternative for me. I have learned as I write this post with controlled excitement that I better not put all my eggs in one basket.
Cross you fingers & toes, I haven't been excited for a marathon since my first one and this time I am close enough to the race location that I could actually get some training runs done on the course. See map above for course outline.
P.S. Bloggy Blog followers my 25 mile ride rocked on Saturday. I was really intimidated to go.
