Sweepstakes rejection from New York City Marathon

A few weeks back, I entered a sweepstakes for a slot on the NYC Marathon. There were thousands of entries for this with only 60 slots available. The odds were against me, but I was still hopeful. Today I got the rejection email. Oh well…Now I have to apply for a lottery on January 15 and wait until the end of February to see if I can secure a spot.

I went for a Vinsaya Yoga Flow class at The Village for an hour today. For the first time ever, I was able to raise both my legs doing a side-crow, although it was only for about a second. A lot of the other students in class have much stronger cores and can do all kinds of fancy balances. I can’t even touch my toes without bending my knees. Someday…I will get there!
