A quick tidbit today as I’ve got some good news.
I WON THE LOTTERY!
Yup, time to quit working forever and buy that tropical island where I can drink massive margaritas, lounge on the beach “au natural” and hunt humans for my general amusement. Woo hoo! Suck it civilization.
Oh, wait a second. I won “a” lottery. Not “the” lottery.
Um, forget what I said about hunting humans.
As it turns out, the lottery I won was for entry into the 2015 Peachtree Road Race in Atlanta on July 4th.
Each year 60,000 people celebrate Independence Day by braving the humidity and running the 10 kilometers from Lenox Square Mall through the suburbs of Atlanta and finishing downtown near Piedmont Park.
The Peachtree Road Race is the largest 10K in the world and an Atlanta tradition for over 30 years. And so many people want to run the race that a few years ago they instituted a lottery system in order to minimize the mayhem for registration.
Happily, I was one of the lucky few who was selected this year.
Okay, 59,999 other people were just as lucky as I, but cut me some slack… I just found out that my dreams for a personal tropical paradise where I can stalk “the most dangerous game” have to once again be put on hold.
Anyway, I am looking forward to visiting my family (with Lindy) in Atlanta this summer and lacing up my shoes to participate (for the 11th time) in this really fun event.
Happy hunting… and Run on!
