The lottery for the ING NYC Marathon was this morning and I was NOT one of the lucky to get in this year. Oh well! I am now one year closer to my guaranteed entry. Josh didn't get in either (if one of us had and not the other, the one who didn't get in through the lottery would have signed up to run for charity so we could do it together). Anyone out there get "in" today?? :)
And here is a funny for you... We had the Nordictrack guy here yesterday fixing my treadmill. (It was making a noise but still running really well. I guess someone at some point had tightened something too tightly when it was put together and after over 500 miles the too-tight-thingy wore something else out... obviously I am very technical here). The customer service was great and my treadmill is all fixed and ready to go again.
The funny part is that the guy checked the calibration on it before he fixed it and said that I had been running FASTER than I thought I was. He said when he had it set to 12 miles an hour it was actually going 12.9. Sheesh!! So my 22:23 5K time for the Jelly Bean virtual 5K should be even faster than it was. I thought I was running about 7:13 miles... wonder how fast I was really going?
I guess that is better than knowing I was actually running SLOWER than I thought though, right??
Hope you all have a happy Wednesday. I am off in a little bit to go watch my hubby coach and my two eldest compete in our local high school track meet. Then I am going to an orchestra concert for my fifth graders and maybe a baby shower for a friend if there is time. Whew!
Running is going well... we did five miles this morning and have nine miles planned for the morning. I am getting more and more excited for Ragnar.
