Waiting, Hardest Part

To borrow from my junior high era musical icon, Tom Petty, the waiting truly is the hardest part about the NYC Marathon Lottery. From January to late April is long time to find out whether November will bring NY City streets or just hometown sleet.

Well all good things are worth the wait, right? Marathon training is all about preparation and one can’t rush the training for an event that will take 3 or more hours to complete. Skip a step in training and pay the price on race day.

If I am lucky enough to make the cut, there will be plenty of time for a full marathon training schedule. I can be patience for a few more weeks.

I will have to correct my earlier statement, the hardest part is running a marathon with less than ample preparation. The waiting is just part of the grand scheme of it all.

  1. Good luck with the waiting… Hope you get the result you want- I’ve been trying for 6years to get into London through their ballot…
