The BERLIN lottery!

I am going to run BERLIN 2014! (I can not believe I just typed those words.)

I received this in my email tonight! I had to read it a couple of times to make sure I read it correctly. I am SO EXCITED! This was my ONLY chance to go run in Berlin while we are stationed overseas, as we leave before the 2015 marathon.

I can’t believe I got in on my first try! I am not usually very lucky when it comes to things like this, so I was not really expecting to get in. I was stalking the Berlin-Marathon Facebook page once they posted that the names had been drawn and emails were being sent out. I kept checking to see how many people were saying that they were in. At this point, I still didn’t have an email telling me if I was in or not. I walked away from my computer for a few minutes, as I was getting a little discouraged, and came back to this email! The best part was I got the email just after Rob got home from work tonight, so he was here when I found out I was in!

I am still in shock! Dreams DO come true!


I really wanted to have the chance to run the Berlin Marathon because it is the fastest course in the world!

Berlin 2014, here I come!

– Anyone else running Berlin 2014?

Thanks for reading!
