My NYC Marathon lottery win!

In March this year I won the lottery for the NYC Marathon November 1 2015. I can’t tell you how excited I was and still am! I lived in NYC for almost 20 years, I was an avid city runner, I earned my entry for the NYC Marathon two times, but each time I had to cancel because I had a bun in the oven. So now that we moved to Florida last year and I wasn’t able to earn my entry through the 9 Roadrunners Club races I thought it would probably make sense to apply for the lottery. The NYRR Club will actually compensate you for the application fee (which I believe was $11) if you do not win, how nice is that! Anyway, I have been excited ever since I have received the email saying “You’re In”. I never won anything in my life and this was one of my biggest wishes. I will post all my weekly training logs on this site every week, along with other tips for running a marathon. This will not be first marathon, but my first since becoming a mom, and I will be training in very hot and humid conditions this summer here in South Florida. So if you’re into running a marathon or maybe running in NYC as well or just love running or need tips on running in the heat feel free to join me on my blog.
