Here is the e-mail confirming I am entered into the NYC Marathon Lottery. This is my 2nd attempt at the lottery and if I do not get in this year or next I am guaranteed entry into 2010. I think I would like to try this year. Don't think I woudl have been ready last year but wanted to start the lottery process. Of course I would have got the chance to run with Katie Holmes - Loved her on Dawsons Creek (I didn't just say that out loud did I)?
