2 Things Thursday

Good morning folks!!

Another day, another doll-hair here.

Yesterday was selection day for those who entered the NYC marathon lottery. They offered a $5 entry fee special last fall on Cyber Monday. In a moment of temporary insanity, I decided to take advantage of that offer and threw my name in the pot for the drawing. I had almost forgotten about that until Tuesday night when I saw a tweet about it. I felt a little bit sick. I really didn't think that I would be selected, but what if.....  Stranger things have happened. I watched my email box anxiously all day yesterday. I even called my bank to see if there were any pending charges on my account. Well, as I was arriving home last night, I got the email


I'm really not disappointed at all. Actually, I'm relieved! I may tackle a marathon some day, I don't really think I'm ready to right now.


And some exciting news! Last week, I found this email in my inbox:

 
That's right, I'm a I'm Fit Possible Ambassador! I'm really excited to work with this group to empower people/women to be the best that they can be. So, be sure to check out the website!

Ok, that's all for now. Until next time--get up, get out, get moving and be awesome today!!

Your friend,

Theresa

Have you ever entered a marathon lottery?

    1. Thanks! It's ok. I'm recovering from an injury so this may not be the best time to train for a marathon

  3. Sorry about the rejection. A lot of people have been posting their rejections on Twitter. So many people enter...

    1. It's ok, really. I never really thought that I had a chance but then again, you never know if you don't try. :-)

  4. Welcome to the team!
    I thought about entering the lottery this year, but I wasn't sure if I'd be able to travel to NYC. I'm seriously considering 2015 now :)

    1. Hi! Thanks!! Maybe I'll try again next year. For now, I'm going to focus on recovering from this injury and my goal of 50 half marathons.

  5. I entered the lottery too and was bummed about not getting it for about 5 seconds. Then I realized that I don't think I'm ready for a marathon just yet.

    1. I was training for a marathon earlier this year but I got injured. Plus, it wore me down emotionally as well as physically. I'm just not sure it's something I really want to do.

  8. Sorry about NYC but congrats on Fit Possible! It always helps when bad news is followed by good news!

    1. Exactly!! I'm really not too terribly sad about NYC. I've been injured and I'm not sure this is the best time to try to train for a marathon. :-)
