Yep, that's right... Golden Showers.
I just found out what my BIB number, wave and corral for the New York City Marathon are.
I will spare you the BIB number. Unless you want to stalk me and my splits during the marathon. If that's the case, please do let me know. I'll gladly provide you with my BIB number. ;)
I'm in Wave 2. Or as I'd like to call it: the wave just behind the elite wave. Yeah, not really, but that's okay. At least I'm not in the back of Wave 3. The start time for Wave 2 is 10:10 AM. Ofcourse it will take me at least 45 minutes to get across that start line, but that's okay. At that point I'll be running (fingers crossed!) the New York City Marathon. That makes up for all of it! ;)
I'm in corral 40, with the 'front' corral being 36 and the 'last' corral 42. So, not great, but not too bad either. I could have been in the last corral. That would have been worse. Weird thing, though, that with a sub-4 projected finish time they place you in the same corral as 4:15-4:30 goal times. Well, I'll probably never understand the brilliant mind of the NYRR. ;)
And, last but not least, I'm in the Green Wave. Yep, the Verrazano Narrows Bridge Lower Deck Wave. Let's just say that I have my hopes set on the 'Golden Showers' stories being an urban legend. ;)
So, guess what's the best part about being in Wave 2, Green Start, Corral 40? I'm in the exact same corral as Tracy (http://www.gotracygo.com/)! What are the odds? Yay! That will make the waiting so much less boring! :) Looking forward to meet you in New York, Tracy! :)
