many apologies

I feel like I dropped off the face of the earth this week. Not a whit of workout all week long. Feeling slow and pokey, too. Long hours at the office, combined with COLD weather this week (OK, not maybe for some of you, but for me? FRIGID!) made me very hibernatish. And there's all kinds of other things going on too that it's too early to talk about but that are taking all kinds of energy. But mostly, I'm sluggish and sad and frustrated that I haven't been making the right choices and have pretty basically stayed EXACTLY the same weight as I was about six weeks ago. Lost a few, found a few, and I end up in the same spot. Sigh.

And my wireless card is flaking out on me here at the terminal in New Jersey, so I'm kinda hacked about that right now. The good news is that I should finish my book tonight, so I can start a new one on my list on Monday's flight. Not sure what I'll read next, though, so I've got to review my lists.

Oh, and I just remembered other thing that I did that is fun and running related -- I signed up for the NYC marathon lottery! Wahoo! We'll see if I get picked this year. I hope so -- it will certainly give me a lot of motivation to train over the summer, especially if I end up here past June. So that's all I got. I'm about to reboot so I can fix my wireless card and spend the next hour or so ('cause our flight is SOOO going to be on time -- they promise! No, really!!) surfing and catching up on everyone since I've spent ZERO time reading blogs this week.

Good luck on your NYCM entry. It's the greatest M. in the world. All those bridges are fun, the Verrazano Narrows bridge in s a bgger and better version of the one posted on your blog (although you can't walk over it so you have to do the marathon if you want to perambulate it). Nice half marathon you ran, congrats.

Blogging means never having to say you're sorry...

Um ... I think you're in automatically in the 4th year, after 3 rejections. You don't get in on the 3rd year counting the 3rd rejection.

Here's what the NYC website says for this year:

Those who have applied but been denied entry for the last three years in a row (2005, 2006, and 2007), and who haven't secured entry through alternative methods.
