On waiting for the London Marathon Ballot Results

London Marathon Ballot

WARNING: This is a very silly post. A couple hundred thousand of us are anxiously awaiting the outcomes of the London Marathon Ballot Results.

As I write this, folks on social media are sharing their news – You’re in!… or …. Sorry! For me, it wasn’t in today’s post.

I’m waiting …. impatiently. Whoever said patience is a virtue…well, it’s not one of mine.


[Update 5 October 2017: So the email said no. Now I have the joys of my running club ballot so I’ve got a couple more months of this though I suspect I won’t be so manic about the whole thing.]
