I’m In

Registrations opened today for the New York Marathon, to which I have guaranteed entry for 2013. So I registered, and have my entry approved – I’m in.

I’d love to be able to say this is due to my super-fast times set in previous marathons, or because I’ve run 15 NY marathons before, but it’s not – it’s because I took advantage of the rule whereby you enter the lottery 3 years in a row and don’t get chosen, therefore are guaranteed entry in the 4th year. That rule is due to expire next year, so I managed to get in just in time.

So, I have 6 months to get from not being able to run 5km to being able to run 42km.

  1. Hi. I’m very envious, you’re about to set off on a fantastic journey. Chris Brasher, who founded the London Marathon, called it the suburban Everest. The training is arduous but pays results on the day. I ran Paris in 2005 and would love to have done London and NY. Crossing the finish line is a memory I’ll never forget. Enjoy it.
