I've never won more than a bottle of ketchup in a grocery store contest when I was a kid, so here's hoping (???) I win the lottery for entry in the 2011 Chevron Houston Marathon. Now I wait until August 17th to see if I made it in.
I was kind of torn as to whether or not I'd do the event. I am somewhat annoyed at the whole implementation of the lottery system, but it is local and I need something to keep me going through the Winter.
I'm also thinking about combining a trip to NJ in 2011 to do the half-marathon at "Run The Shore" New Jersey Marathon Festival -- it's down the boardwalk from Long Branch and South... seems like it would be fun!
