      It feels a little early to start the thread but since the drawing for the lottery is today, I thought I'd start it.

       

      Who won the lottery today?

        I did! I entered the lottery when it was open as an afterthought to get myself motivated to run again...and of course I won! Guess I better start running Sucks because my fiance didn't get in, but I guess that means I will have an awesome Sherpa!!

         

        I'm excited!! Goal is to BQ!!

              I'm in too!

                Hi folks - I'm in, but not by lottery.  I got in through the lottery in 2016, but suffered a torn meniscus and had to defer to this year.  This will be my 3rd NYC Marathon - 2014 & 2015.  Such a great race!
