Disappointment and Decisions

I found out last month that I wasn't selected to run the St. George marathon. I found out today I wasn't selected to run the New York marathon. Darn lotteries!! My fall-back plan was to run the Top of Utah marathon if the lottery failed me for New York, but I found a conflict when I pulled up the registration and looked at my calendar. If New York in November wasn't happening for the marathon, my husband and I were planning a trip there in September for the U2 concert. (I heart Bono!!!!)

(This is our own picture from the concert. We were that close at the last concert!)

The problem: Top of Utah is Saturday, September 19 and the U2 concert is Friday, September 25. With my husband's work schedule the way it is that time of year, it might be hard for him to take off a few days for the marathon and then a week for New York that close together. It might be time to call in reinforcements. I'll keep you posted. No matter what, I am not letting my lack of lottery luck get me down or slow me down.


  1. Sigh... Bono... I'm jealous you got to be so close.

    Can you get some friends to join you for the marathon and do NY/ U2 with the hubby?

    Or, hey- better yet... have you your hubby go to the marathon and have a blogger friend (wink, wink) go with you to NY and U2! ha ha

    Thanks for leaving the nice comment on my blog. I look forward to reading how your running and training go for you!

  2. I am with Running through life...go to the marathon with a friend. I would do it if I wasn't so far away....I did both TOU and STG last year. Good luck with the decisions.

  3. There must be a better marathon in your future and hopefully you can fit Bono in there too. Yep, make it a girl's weekend.

  4. thanks for stopping by :)

    you will find the marathon that will fit in perfectly with the rest of life, especially in the fall. one tends to just jump out and work. good luck finding it and cant wait to follow along to see which one it is :)

  5. Run the Hartford (CT) marathon in October. I'll come and cheer for you. Thanks for the comment on my blog.
