Last year Chicago moved their lottery from March / April to November. This year was the same. Last year I was absolutely certain eleven months ahead of time that I wanted to do it. This year I was similarly positive that I didn't want to even try the lottery game. The lottery window opened, a week later they sent another reminder email, the next week one more reminder, then finally a last day last chance to enter email. I deleted every email and let it go.

Chicago didn't go well this year and I've been saying since July that I'm not doing a fall 2018 marathon. It's super expensive between the race entry and a hotel. Even more than the financial cost, I don't want to invest the time or wear and tear.

Detroit opened early registration today and they have a new challenge for 2018 - 1 mile, 5k and full. It's the sort of thing that's right up my alley, but too much time and money. Nothing fall 2018. That's my story and I'm sticking to it!
