Anyone who signed up with my group got in! Yea!
I just got the email. I got in :) Cya there
I got in.
I got it... now what did I do with my running shoes?
I am in as well. My credit union reimburses my entry fee when I finish. However, I still prefer the GW Parkway 10 Miler. Hope to see you all at GWP 10 as well!
I'm in too.
I guess I should add "learning how to run" to my christmas list.
Katie and I are IN.
I sort of had my fingers crossed that I wouldn't so that I could do the spring backyard burn but still looking forward to this race. Every year I've done it it's been amazing weather. Hopeful that will continue.
I got in.
I didn't get in!! :-( Probably all the better since the race is only one week before Boston, but I still feel a little "rejected"! Heck, I won an Age Group Award (5th) just two years ago.
For those that didn't get in, there is the Annapolis Striders Cherry Pit 10-miler which is on the same day. A little bit of a drive, but the race has that small town feel.
Their slogan is that we don't have the blossums, but we do have the pits. Seriously, check it out. It's one of my favorites of their club races.
Out. Backyard Burn it is.
i didnt get in. but i'm running anyway; the cherry blossoms belong to the people!
nope. locked out.
Didn't even bother wasting my time this year. I decided last year as we lined up that it would be my last. I'm over it. It's too crowded and while the cherry blossoms are nice, I can walk over and look at them while they are in bloom.
Doesnt' sound like anyone is too heartbroken.
I got in, but have a guilty conscience about it. I have never run farther than 5 miles at one time, and talking to some of the real runners that I am displacing, I feel a bit bad. Guess I'll have to run all winter so I feel like I belong!
don't feel bad, Cherry Blossom is meant to be a fun race, it's a great goal and you deserve the opportunity to experience it as much as anyone else. Unless they are running with the elite, it is not ideal for a person to enter this race to try to get a personal best 10 mile time because it's so crowded, at least that has been my experience. Not to mention, you have plenty of time to get your distance up by April.
In...along with four other DC Tri peeps who are all training together this next year for an IM. This bodes well!!
I'm in - comped entry from my credit union. :-D
In, great race! I thought the lottery system wasn't all that bad this year. I say that with a grain of salt seeing how I was lucky enough to get a spot.
GW Parkway 10 miler is a great alternative to this race for those that didn't get in...
