The Chicago marathon lottery window closed yesterday. With the kind of year I've had, they would pick me, then I would be in this same situation all summer - too injured to train, stressed about the race, the entry fee, the lack of training. The smart thing (and I'm not always smart when it comes to running) was to just not enter. I had trouble falling asleep last night, told my bestie I felt unsettled, but I couldn't identify the source. It was the marathon, duh! I still had 3 hours to enter, then 2 hours, then I finally fell asleep and the lottery went on without me :(
Of course I could still enter on a charity spot.... :D Not this year!
