March Madness-Marine Corps Marathon-Lottery #2

March 25, 2015

A couple of weeks ago the Marine Corps opened their lottery for the 40th running of the marathon (it is going to be special, for sure), and I submitted my name.  I’ve already entered the Chicago Marathon lottery (selection status will be emailed on April 28, 2015). 

Today the MCM announced our selection status and I was sent this email:

Womp womp.  While I wait for Chicago, I’ll start looking into other fall marathons, just in case (or explore the bib transfer process).

Did you get into Marine Corps this year?

If not, what are you looking to run?

        Thanks Salt – I am hoping that is a sign as well πŸ™‚ If anything it will be fun to spectate the MCM or even run the 10K πŸ™‚

        Very good point! I wonder if MCM will release their numbers soon, would be curious to see a spike in lottery entrants. Thanks for thinking about me, I am even thinking volunteering may be just as fun, I remember your recap from last year.

        I am glad you got into MCM! Hoping for Chicago as well..just want to know now haha πŸ™‚

    1. Well, this can only mean one thing…you’re going to Chicago!! That’s what I’ll be hoping for, anyway. This would be a little disappointing for me but, like you, I’m sure I’d just keep on looking for other races; there are so many! Keep us posted, Jenny! Hope you have a great day!

        Thanks Abby! Lucky for me plenty of marathons to choose from πŸ™‚

    1. Bummer about the MCM! I’m keeping my fingers crossed for you about Chicago. πŸ™‚

      I said I would never attempt a marathon, but I did throw my name into the MCM hat. Not sure if I should be happy or sad, but I received the same email as you.
