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.]
On how I might respond
And I’m lucky, if I don’t get a place, I then have the fun of awaiting the outcomes of my running club ballot so get to go through all of this again.
On a more serious note, for those that are in, a huge congratulations. It is such an amazing day – I get goosebumps just thinking about it. And if I don’t get a place, I’ll still be there, marshaling and cheering you all on.
Happy running folks!
