NYC Marathon Lottery & Acupuncture #2

This isn’t my usual kind of post, but because I’m so excited about my day, I had to share!

Woo-hoo #1: At noon, I entered the NYC Marathon Lottery for the first time ever.

You heard me: I threw my hat into the ring for a chance to run 26.2 miles around my favorite city in the world in about 10 months. Having never run more than 13.2 (ish) miles in my life, this is the most terrifying, exciting risk I’ve taken in a long time. I mean, my odds of actually getting in are astronomically low, but what the hell? Gotta be in it to win it.

Me, when I find out they let me in.

Woo-hoo #2: I’ve got my second acupuncture appointment tonight!

Having this to look forward toΒ makes me so indescribably happy, I can’t even put it into words.Β I had an awesome experience my first time around, and 2 weeks later I’m still feeling the positive effects: hello, weight loss, decreased appetite, and finally feeling balance in my life once again!

In addition to continuing to work on my existing issues that we started treating in session 1, we’re also going to be working on my knees todayΒ so I’m excited to see how that works out.

So that’s my Thursday in a nutshell! How about you? Are you entering the NYC Lotto? Have you tried acupuncture? Did you know it was possible to use nothing but Kristen Wiig GIF’s in one post?

  1. Good luck! NYC is my fave city, too… I’ll be running the United Airlines half there in March! but a full?? You go girl! Also, can’t wait to hear how your second session goes… I’ve tried acupuncture several times before and never noticed a difference. Do you go to someone local?

    • Ahh I didn’t get into the Half this year! So bummed. Think of me as you exit the park and hear the rush of people in the streets cheering for everyone! I get chills thinking about it πŸ™‚
      And YES, I go to a guy near me in East Brunswick – he’s phenomenal. Last night was so blissful, he even coached me through some pain management techniques and stretches to do during/after my runs now that I’m running longer, and I can’t wait to try them out.
