Rejected

I am not "officially" rejected because I haven't received the "official" email but my name is listed as NOT SELECTED. Boo. Sarge's name was drawn and shows that she got into the race. I am excited for her and I will be a spectator or a volunteer but I am majorly disappointed. Logically I KNOW that this is the outcome you need to deal with when there is a lottery for a race, but it still sucks when you get your hopes up. I won't piss and moan, I will just find a new race to do right around the same time to stay on training task.

Bummer. Have you ever done the Heart of the City half in Burnsville? I think it is a couple of weeks earlier than Grandma's. I did that one year and it was a pretty good race.

Races with lottos are such heartbreakers. The road is wide and I'll bring my own water! Why do you tell me no!?!

I may have to find a different half to do myself. I'm already a few weeks out of training, and I don't know if I can pull of the Cleveland one. Boo...

OOOh.. You can come run Towpath with me in the fall!
