So maybe 2012 will be a lucky year for me and I'll get selected? I really abhor this lottery system, but I know if I'm on the sidelines just cheering, I'll be even more bummed (like in 2011!). So I'm in. I registered this morning.
I've already registered for the Texas Marathon which is on New Year's Day. I actually signed up for the full, but with the intention of switching to the half if I got in to Houston. The thought of doing a full crosses my mind... but then I think, why? I just need to stay focused and work on my running. I don't want my first full to be a more miserable experience than it needs to be.
Anyway, if I get selected I'll be doing the Texas Half Marathon on New Year's day and then the Aramco Half on January 15th.
If I don't get selected for 2012, there is a rule in place that ensures I will get to participate the 3rd time I enter the lottery. So I will definitely have an entry for 2013, if I don't make 2012.
Maybe that's when I should go for my full? Hmmmm. :)
