Remember how I said I was impulsive?
…well, that impulsivity inspired me to put my name into the lottery for the NYC Marathon again. I was in the lottery last year and had I been selected, I would have ran. At the time the lottery selections were announced (June every year), I was still in fairly decent shape (i.e. I could run about 10 miles at a 9 min/mile pace) and I’d only been off the proverbial wagon about a month or so.
The NYC marathon is one of those things I’ve always wanted to do and it will force me to get into top-notch running shape about five months prior to the 70.3.
I have the feeling this might turn into one of those “if it doesn’t kill you, it will make you stronger” moments. However, right now, I have a feeling I may come out on the losing end of that cliché.
