Here I come New York……

17 Nov

Well, I put my name down for the New York City marathon in…2013!! errr…that’s the earliest I could get in with a ‘marathon travel’ agent here in little ol’ NZ. He said he only has 60 places for New Zealander’s per year and they are ALL booked up till 2013.
There must be an easier way?

    Far out! Yeah, there MUST be an easier way!! Perhaps I need to get in now for the Great Wall Marathon – I might not get to do it until I’m 50!

    Hey Catherine – I will bet you by 2 years with my entry in 2011. Also had entered the London one in 2012 but Marathon Tours have since had their numbers cut. Oh well at least I can give you a heads up on the excitment!

    man that’s far off! do you have to do it through the travel guy? or can you try to enter the lottery? (not sure if the lottery is US only?) i know you can also qualify with a half-marathon or full-marathon time.

    definitely a fantastic race though!
