The week of and the week following what would have been NYC Marathon week, I was obsessed with the “what ifs”. What if they don’t give us a refund? What if they only allow runners to run next year’s marathon? What if? What if? WHAT IF?
My obsessing stopped when the holidays took over and I just decided it will all work out in the end. Well, today 2012 runners received an email from NYRR explaining our options.
Option #1: A refund
Option #2: Guaranteed entry to the ING NYC Marathon in 2013, 2014 OR 2015. Must pay for marathon.
Option #3: Guaranteed entry to the NYC Half Marathon in 2013. Must pay for race.
Which option would you choose? I have two different game plans. I am already in the lottery for the NYC Half Marathon and would love to get into the race that way. If I do then I’ll do the refund. If I don’t get into the NYC Half Marathon then I’m choosing option #3.
Why am I not choosing option #2? The hubs and I hope to be baking baby #2 next Fall and I don’t know what 2014 or 2015 hold for me. I just don’t feel I can commit to the NYC Marathon two to three years away. That’s a long time and I’ll be 38! YOWZERS!
Could you commit to a marathon two to three years from now? Am I crazy for not choosing option #2?December 20, 2012
