Just a quickie today!
On March 1st I decided to enter the very unique selection process for the Great Cranberry Island Ultra (yes, I said Ultra. Yes, I have claimed on SEVERAL occasions to have zero plans to run even a step over 26.2. WHOOPS.)
The process was right up my alley. You put in all the normal info and then answer, in 250 words or less a creative variety of questions. Having no idea what they were actually looking for, I plugged in the first things to pop into my head. And if you know me, you know that could have been a risky move! In the end it paid off, as I made the final cut.
I keep telling myself that this is a GOOD THING, hahaha...
I'm not gonna lie, I am very excited about this race and think it's going to be a pretty awesome mid summer adventure. Also, they claim it is the Best Race Ever- since we ALL know MDI holds that title I very much look forward to having GCI prove me wrong! Can't wait...
At 7:00 AM sharp Eric, Kate (my sister) and I were sitting at our computers hitting "refresh" and knowing that my BFF Angie and Eric's sister (and 6,000 others) were doing the same. Total system overload! With the exception of poor Kate we all had luck- and we are confident that she will get in via lottery. The plan is to wear cute matching outfits (you hear that Eric?) and to make it a social event not a sprint to the finish. It should be a lot of fun!
