Oh my word, i can barely contain my excitement!
I received confirmation that i have an automatic qualification place for the New York City marathon this November!?!?!?
It’s something that has not quite sunk in yet and probably won’t till i’m at the start line in New York.
It will be 12 months to the day after when i posted about my amazing Frankfurt marathon run, that i will be running New York. Such an amazing feeling i have right now and something that i feel so proud about.
Qualifying for a marathon major after just my second marathon race is an amazing achievement and to think i didn’t even know what a marathon major was till a short while ago. Now i want to run all six! Tokyo, Boston, London, Berlin, Chicago and New York.
So if i’m going to start running marathon majors, why not start with the biggest one?
It just goes to show that neither age or ability need be a barrier. All i want to do, is go for a run.
Good luck to all those who have entered the ballot and maybe i will see you in New York and we can sing some Frank Sinatra together whilst eating some pizza?
No doubt you will hear more about this and right now i have a couple of half marathons and marathon to complete before New York.
