Marathon registration status: Accepted
And just like that, I'm in.
Never been so excited to spend $255.
My lottery acception for the 2012 ING New York City Marathon was accepted, which means I now have plans for November 4. Hooray for me! Those four words -- "Marathon registration status: Accepted" -- means I'll get to run 26.2 miles through the five boroughs of New York City. It means I'll get to experience everything I've so far only read about: the bridges, the people, the crowd on 1st Ave, the finish in Central Park. I can't wait.
