My mom helped me to stay focused on the bright side of things...
On another bright side, deferring my dream of being a jury foreman gave me the opportunity to enjoy a beautiful "Summer" afternoon...
I'm still in "Summer" mode since the temps are still in the 90s...
Today the lottery for the 2016 NYC Marathon opened up so I entered...
(I entered last year too but didn't get in)
I'm not getting my hopes up about NY. After all if I can't even get selected to be a juror what are the chances I'll get selected for this? But a fall marathon wasn't necessarily on the agenda for 2016 anyway so I have nothing to lose.
As I try to figure out what IS on the agenda for 2016 I can't help but feel a little sad about Miami. I still kind of wish I felt strong enough to do the full marathon. I'm trying not to dwell on it but the feelings come up
daily occasionally daily :( Sadly this probably won't be the last time I mention that I'm bummed about not doing the full (so you've been warned)...
(I keep myself motivated by reading posts like these)
I went to Party City today in a last ditch effort to try and find the things I needed to complete my costume for the Disney Wine and Dine (I figured they would have some left over Halloween merchandise that could work). But I didn't find what I was looking for, so I've officially scrapped the costume idea and am sticking with my compression pants and the other usual running attire. It's supposed to rain and be really humid and hot so a costume wouldn't have been ideal anyway.
Disney is in 1 day!!!!!!
What are you running this weekend? Anyone heading to the Wine& Dine 1/2?
Is NY on your Bucket List? Don't forget to sign up for the lottery!!!
What "Runner Commandment(s)" do you live by?
