I didn't make it into the NYC Marathon this year. Bummer. My friend Jennifer didn't make it either, double bummer. Going home to do my first marathon would have been fantastic, but like they say, better luck next year.
So that means the MVP Rochester Marathon is going on the calendar! I ran the half marathon last year, and it's a fairly flat course, and since I lived there for five years, I would love to run through my old stomping grounds in a marathon.
Barefoot Angie Bee has a Nuun giveaway going on, and she gives you five extra entries if you write a poem, so this is what I came up with:
I love how running makes me fly,
Although at times it makes me cry.
In sun or snow, and sometimes rain,
I always look for a chance to get out there again.
