Because the other race was too popular...

I am registered to run in the Cherry Blossom 10 Miler on April 1st. However, as this race is pretty popular, and the 10,000 slots fill up in the 12-15 hour range, a lot of people I know didn't get in. None of these people know each other, but they all apparently independently decided to register for the George Washington Parkway 10 Miler, which is 3 weeks after Cherry Blossom.

In the past week, 5 people, none of whom spoke about this amongst themselves, all asked me if I was running the GW Parkway. So now I am feeling almost guilted into running it.

The last day of early registration for the GW Pkwy is the day of Cherry Blossom, so I can always register for the GW Pkwy right after after I've run the other one.

But jeez, so much guilt...

You can give one of them my race number for the Cherry Blossom! Just make sure it is someone fast so that I look good if someone googles me :-)

both races are terrific! especially if the weather cooperates.
