Here we go again. I entered the ING New York City Marathon 2013 lottery! I entered last year, but did not get in. Second time is a charm?

Roughly a month ago I did not finish (DNF) the LA Marathon. Since then I have taken some time off from running to reflect and heal.
I have decided not to run Rock N Roll Portland Half Marathon in May to focus on rehabbing and strengthening my legs. Every race after that is also up in the air. I don’t want to jump back in too quickly.
However, there is one race that I do plan to run. But luckily that is much later in the year, which gives me plenty of time to train and be 100%. That race is (drum roll please!) the Amica Insurance Seattle Marathon!
In November of 2010 I ran the my 1st half marathon ever at the Seattle Marathon (see full post here). That didn’t go well as planned. Now it’s time for revenge. Back to where it all started. Yes, I will CRUSH the Seattle Marathon. I will be documenting my training up until the big day on December 1st, 2013.
This year I have been very fortunate to be a Seattle Marathon Ambassador! I’m very humbled and honored to be part of the Seattle Marathon Association. Full disclosure: They have provided me with a race entry as part of being a Seattle Marathon Ambassador.
