No London in 2011, chance of Los Angeles 80%

Well, I finally received it — the rejection notice from the Race Director of the Virgin London Marathon 2011. After a few odd months of waiting I finally know that I won’t be part of the London Marathon in 2011. I’m really not bothered, though, since I knew it’d be a long-shot to get in, but I wanted to share the short (and generic) email, anyway:

Yours Sincerely

David Bedford
Race Director

Anyway, with that out of the way, sometime in November I’ll be planning my running events for 2011. Since I told myself that last summer’s Rock ‘n’ Roll San Diego would be my final SD race, I’m thinking of doing the Los Angeles Marathon (for the second time evar) next year, and perhaps, make that my yearly “must do” marathon. I just wish the LA Marathon next year would have a better race expo! That’s probably the biggest thing I’ll miss about the SD marathon — the awesome (and I mean awesome) race expo. Mmmm… Freebies… ^_^

Oh, depending on how I do after this weekend’s Hermosa Beach Triathlon (i.e., don’t drown!), I’m hoping that around November, I won’t just be scheduling some running events but triathlon ones, as well. And maybe do a 10k barefoot… We shall see!

    Sorry to hear that. Kinda sucks how they turn people away… they should just make the event even bigger to accomodate more people. On the bright side is that you won’t need to spend money on a plane ticket, hotel or rental. 😛
