Marathon Plan B
Like about 40,000 others, I did not "win" the NYC Marathon lottery. What gets me is I think the New York Road Runners still whacks me for $10, I guess for the honor of trying to pay them $120 to run their marathon. I'm OK with not running NY. I've done it twice, and I didn't particularly enjoy it last time because of the crowding. The question now is, What fall marathon do I run? If I'm going to run for a good time, I'd say back to Chicago or Philly. The Mount Desert Island Marathon in Maine looks very interesting. There is of course another try at the Indy Marathon, assuming my flight isn't cancelled. Otherwise, I'm not sure. A trail marathon would be fun (and less painful).
