I got excellent news from New York today. I was selected for a lottery slot to run the 2015 TCS New York City Marathon on November 1. I’m stoked. Some say that running the New York marathon is even better than running the Boston marathon. Of course, for now my focus remains on Boston; but come this summer and fall, it will definitely shift to New York! By the end of 2015, I will have done 2 of the 6 marathon majors; Boston and New York. I’d love to do 2 more in 2016 (London, Berlin, Tokyo or Chicago).
Last year, I was rejected from the Berlin Marathon lottery. I was disappointed then, but this makes up for it.
I found out about the New York lottery just as I was about to enter The Village this evening. Needless to say, I had an really good treadmill run for an hour (about 7.4 miles) after that piece of good news!
