Well, I didn't get into the NYC Marathon, which I am pretty bummed about, but neither did my dad, or Jill, so it's ok, we can all just run it another year. So, I have been looking for another marathon to do and am thinking about the Dunkin' Donuts Cape Cod Marathon (I know, how ironic that Dunkin' Donuts is the title sponsor for an event where people run 26.2 miles), on October 26th, so only a week earlier than NYC. Then, on November 9th, the perfect reward for running a marathon... an awesome Mexican cruise with the Olson fam, and NO KIDS (at least not mine!!).
If anyone else knows of a cool marathon back east around the same time, let me know, my options are still wide open!
