The facebook fan page messages have been taunting me for 2 weeks. "Seattle Rock-n-Roll Marathon almost sold out!" and most recently, "Only 900 spots left, better hurry." That last one, I knew, was the funeral bell. Just now, I found out it's official. Sold out. I didn't get in. Caught between paychecks.
But where do they get off charging $115 for a race? And why don't I ever have any money? And wasn't Obama supposed to fix all this, anyway? I want my blanky.
Time to formulate a plan B.
Portland, maybe? That's just when I wanted to be peaking for cyclocross season, though. Hmmm... anyone know of another good marathon in the Northwest (WA, OR, ID, MT, UT) taking place in late June or early July?
