A loser again.

So didn't get in to the Berlin marathon.  That's three times a failure for New York, (getting automatically on the fourth), and one failure each for Berlin, London and Tokyo.  Maybe I should buy a lottery ticket.  My luck's got to change eventually.  Now, the question is whether to try and go for a tour for either.

Bummer Frank- I am glad I completed Berlin in 2009 when the demand was not what it is now. I gave up on London after three tries (they allocate so few bibs for overseas runners... booo). Apparently I should not even bother with Tokyo as well. Sigh.

Hey- It just occurred to me... Why not try the Barcelona marathon in March? Or the Prague one in May? They're not majors but the have bibs available... ;)

Tokyo isn't so bad to get into, I hear. A guy here in Toronto and his wife both got into the race next year on their first try. I'll have to take a looksy at those races. Thanks.
