Totally Official (Update) Totally!

I will be running the 2009 New York City Marathon.

I also plan on running all the rest of the New York City Marathons, but that is another story.

No lottery, no 9 races + 1 volunteering.... I am in.

All I need to do now is apply for a second mortgage (Just kidding)!

  1. I got the same email today. To run or not to run in '09, that is my question? (Most likely not...I'll have to blog about it.)
