Please oh please select me in your lottery drawing next year. You have rejected me the last two years and I am starting to develop a complex. I understand that if I am not selected for 2010, that I am in by default for 2011. Please, please do not make it come to this. I will make you so proud and promise to wear a super cute outfit.
I am sure that you have been waiting to select me in 2010, since the marathon will be around my birthday that year. I understand this and am willing to forgive you if you do select me for 2010. I know that you understand that I have been holding off on a trip to NYC until I can run the marathon. Please oh please do not make me wait any longer.
