I just this morning realized that not only did I not use my entry for the NYC Marathon, but I also forgot to officially CANCEL the entry. I missed out on my t-shirt at the expo and automatic entry into next year's race.
Considering this, I could get my 9+1 done still this year. I'd have to attend a couple of races and do my volunteer stint, still. I wouldn't mind doing the Midnight Run as a volunteer thing again. That was OK.
I don't know why I'm concerned. I'm not going to race again until next year's Staten Island, and even training for that will not have me in shape for NYC Marathon a few weeks later. And if my work schedule continues the way it has this year (and I hope it does), I'll have no time for the marathon. A spring marathon in 2011 is really my best bet. So why bother earning the qualifier for a race I won't run, right?
On the other hand, if my summer and fall go really well and I do want to run NYC, I suppose I could raise the money for Team Boomer and run with one of their bibs. That would be good, too.
