I WON THE LOTTERY!!!!!!

Now I know you are all probably thinking I won money or something but in fact it is something FAR BETTER..........................I get to run the St. George Marathon this October! It is something I have wanted for YEARS, but have been too busy with school to train, too poor from school (you have to pay a rather large chunk of cashola to race), pregnant, or injured. Well, I decided this year was the year so I entered the lottery (there are a lot of us crazies wanting to race and they can only allow so many applicants). This morning when the lottery was announced and I saw my name on the list I could not believe it!!!! It is like a dream of mine is finally coming true and I get to share the experience with one of my very best friends.
Just thought I would share my exciting news with all of you. Most people I have told cannot believe I am excited about running 26.2 miles but I AM!!!!!

You, my dear, are amazing. I like to run and all, but not that much. I'm always impressed with people who have the will-power and commitment to run a marathon.

Congrats! I get it! It's super exciting. Running is the best high ever and checking one off the bucket list is a pretty good high too. I'm cheering for you. Train hard!
