The results of the lottery for a spot in the marathon were posted this afternoon... and I was accepted. I think they accept around 35,000 runners; well over 70,000 runners applied (my entry number was just over 71,000). I've never run a marathon before. In fact, I've never run more than a mile. But I started training last month using The Non-Runner's Marathon Trainer, bought myself a pair of Saucony Hurricanes, and I'm determined to run and finish. Any other marathon runners here? Post your experiences. Or just wish me luck... I'm sure I'll need a bit of it. Edit -- The marathon is on Sunday, November 7th.
