Sportsfans, here's the latest


I'm feeling much better today, and I wanted to thank everyone who commented on my last post. I truly appreciate all your encouraging words.

The funk started lifting after I got all that garbage off my chest. I spent today giving thanks to our Veterans, including my Dad, who is a Vietnam Vet, my two Grandfather's who are WWII Vets, and my cousin and friends who have served in Iraq. The kids didn't have school, so we spent a few hours at the mall stimulating the economy, then time at the playground, where I had one eye on Luke, and the other on Eliza.....good thing I dressed them in red so I could find them in the crowd. I channeled June Cleaver, and got the grocery shopping done, the house picked up, and now I sit with a glass of vino, getting ready to veg out in front of Top Chef.

Oh, and another thing......I registered for my Thanksgiving Day 10k.....and....I threw my name into the lottery for the 2010 NYC Marathon. Huh?!?! Yup. I did.

The chances are verrrry slim that my name is picked, but I figured, what the heck. My very good friend Jennifer has been really motivating me on the marathon front, and she entered the lottery herself.

I figured that if I don't get in (the names are drawn in March), I have a few other tricks up my sleeve. So, stay tuned.

I didn't know that there was a lottery for the marathon. I guess I never thought about them limiting participation but that makes sense.

I'm glad you're feeling better!

Glad you are feeling better and that you had a busy and fulfilling Veteran's Day!!

The NYC Marathon Gig would be pretty cool but if it is a no go, can't wait to see what else you have cooking!!

I'm so thrilled that you threw your name in! That's way cool.

Can't wait to find out if you get to run NYC. I put in this year but didn't get selected. I am still debating on 2010 because I have another marathon in October.

I am always envious of those who have the discipline to train for such things. Thanks for stopping by my blog today and good luck on both your Thanksgiving run and your chances of doing the New York Marathon!
