I'm In.

I made a deal with myself a few months ago.

I decided to enter the lotteries for MCM, NYCM and the Chicago marathon.
I made a promise to myself that if I didn't get into any of them I would not run a fall marathon and instead give my body a rest.

I didn't get into MCM or NYCM so my last shot was Chicago.

Around 3:20pm on Monday I received my congratulations email.
Woot woot!!

It came at the perfect time.
Monday was a bit rough.
Someone trying to hack into my FB account. (this has happened three times this week)
Changing passwords.
Good times.

Getting that email was the highlight of my day.
Actually that email has been the highlight of my week.

This week has been horrific and it's only Wednesday.
I am hoping that Thursday and Friday will be kinder to me.
Keeping my fingers crossed.

Are you running a fall marathon?
Which one?


  1. Doing a half in September...I better start running again!

  2. Congrats! Chicago is a great race. I'll be there cheering you on. NYCM for me this fall.

  3. Yey!!! Congrats!! I was so tempted to enter Chicago but had already gotten in to MCM via the military entry. Then I read if I had to defer Chicago you had to pay DOUBLE! It didn't even occur to me to defer MCM, lol. Oh well, I'll try next year! Congrats! Can't wait to hear what you think!!

  4. Congratulations my friend, you will rock at Chicago. I sent you a picture on twitter.

  5. Congratulations! One of these days I'll have to try to get in to Chicago; I've heard such good things about it!

  6. Congrats - that's so exciting! I am thinking 2015 will be my year for another marathon, this year I'm focusing on a fall Half Ironman.

  7. Awesome!!!! I am doing Richmond!

  8. I'm super happy for you. Congrats and good luck. :-)

  9. HUGS Natalie!!!! I am so glad you got in - you deserve it!!!

  10. Congratulations!! I'm running the Chicago marathons well! :)

  11. That's awesome! I hear Chicago is a great marathon. You will have a blast!!
