I (or rather my entry into the 2012 Tokyo Marathon) have been officially rejected by the Tokyo Marathon committee. I missed out on the lottery. Only 35,000 runners allowed, and they had over 284,000 wanna-be participants. I will not be one of them. Boo. Got the official rejection email today. There is an ever slight possibility that I could get a spot on the second round of offers released in November….but I don’t like my chances.
Need a new goal for 2012. Any suggestions? Maybe a sprint Olympic triathlon (would be my first triathlon) or perhaps a marathon in a different city around the world, or even train for a Sydney marathon
