I didn't get in.
Yesterday was super weird, I checked my email obsessively and then saw that people were checking their statuses on NYRR, so I did that and it said I wasn't in. Bummer. And THEN I saw that some people who had saw their statuses as "not accepted" later got their credit cards charged and flip over to "accepted." So I held out hope! Then my not accepted status changed! YIPPEE!
And then when I got home I found out it had changed BACK to not accepted, and then I got the official email. Such a bummer. I'm really not that mad that I don't get to do that particular race, but I REALLY REALLY wanted to be in NYC over St. Patty's day with my two race options falling in the middle-ish of March. I tried to swing my flight STILL to make it work to be there over the day o' green, but the flight is $130 more. Gross.
I'm really glad I had a backup plan of the All State half, or I think yesterday would've left me SUPER BUMMED.
NYC (+Susan!) I'm still comin' for ya!
