No Whammies…No Whammies…oohhh….whammy
Well for the second year in a row I’ve been denied lottery acceptance to the NYC Marathon. I’m not sure if I should be disappointed or relieved, but one thing I do know is that this has all but assured that my first marathon will be in Carlsbad this coming January.
In reality, this is probably better for my long-term training prospects since it will allow me to restart my training year after the OC Triathlon and start building up to Ironman Arizona. I’ll still have four months until the marathon and just over six months to the Oceanside 70.3.
I’m a big believer in the ideal that everything happens for a reason and things tend to work out for me, so I’m going to keep rolling with it.
