Well, it's official, I am entered into the lottery for the 2015 NYC Marathon on November 1st, 2015. The
lottery application window is open until February 15th and afterwards, there will be 3 separate drawings done. There will be a drawing that is done for NY Metro and surrounding area applicants. There will be a drawing done for the rest of the United States applicants. Finally, there will be a drawing done for the international pool.
Based on what I saw online the other day, I have roughly a 1 in 8 chance of being picked. I guess it could be worse! Keep your fingers crossed for me and good luck to any of you that are planning to enter as well. I hope we all get in!
