Let's Try This Again for 2012

So maybe 2012 will be a lucky year for me and I'll get selected? I really abhor this lottery system, but I know if I'm on the sidelines just cheering, I'll be even more bummed (like in 2011!).  So I'm in.  I registered this morning.

I've already registered for the Texas Marathon which is on New Year's Day.  I actually signed up for the full, but with the intention of switching to the half if I got in to Houston.  The thought of doing a full crosses my mind... but then I think, why?  I just need to stay focused and work on my running.  I don't want my first full to be a more miserable experience than it needs to be.

Anyway, if I get selected I'll be doing the Texas Half Marathon on New Year's day and then the Aramco Half on January 15th.

If I don't get selected for 2012, there is a rule in place that ensures I will get to participate the 3rd time I enter the lottery.  So I will definitely have an entry for 2013, if I don't make 2012.

Maybe that's when I should go for my full?  Hmmmm. :)


  1. I've been trying to comment on all your post and haven't been until this one! Sorry!!
