Last November, on 'Marathon Monday Mania', the day after the New York City marathon, I applied for my lottery ticket for the 2012 marathon. To apply you had to complete a type of scavenger hunt- I had to send in a photo holding my flag. My friend and I were about to go for a run, so it was not taken in the most picturesque location (the supermarket car park!)- but hey - it worked!
Now- the reality of flying for over 20 hours to be in a city for 48 hours and to run a marathon...my FIRST marathon...is pretty daunting and totally intimidating...if possible at all.
I'm hoping I can postpone my entry. Or should I just go for it?
