So welcome to Friday...i'm pretty excited for it and the weekend! I've got a 12 km run at lunch...10kms of which are at marathon race pace. Ohhhh I forgot to mention my swim last night...I made it to 3000m...yay for me. Realistically I should have made up an actual practice in advance but I figured I'd just wing it and make it up as I went along. Not too shabby for my first night back in the pool!

Well this morning I decided to enter the lottery for the NYC Marathon! Look at this picture...can you imagine being here at the start of the race? Freaking awesome! I'm quite excited even though I don't expect to get in. You know what kinda sucks though...is that you can get guaranteed entry based on your best marathon or half marathon time. So for the half marathon I would need a 1:37:00...and my best is a 1:37:05 gun time (1:36:57 chip time)...i'm pretty sure they're not as lenient as the Boston marathon where apparently they'll accept you if you're 1 or 2 mins over the cut off time I believe. Anyhow, no worries because NYC is only 2 months after the Transrockies nightmare I've got going on at the end of August (I say nightmare but i'm SUPER excited...just terrified is all lol). So if I get into the race then sweet! And if I don't then maybe once i'm finished Transrockies I'll be relieved that I don't have to continue to train for an upcoming marathon!
