10 Registration for the Cherry Blossom 10-Miler: Total Madness!
Whoah. I think a new record was set for this year's Cherry Blossom online race entry registration. It didn't even take the usual 4 hours for the online registration to fill up & close this time around.
I won't bore you with the mundane details (especially since I already tweeted & FB'd about it earlier & don't really feel like repeating myself here), but the bottom line is that I've got a spot in the race. Yay!
The only thing I'll say about the above is that registration was total & utter madness. The flurry of people (probably from all across the nation & world!) trying to register was unbelievable. I won't even tell you the number of times I encountered web server errors trying to submit my application online. Needless to say, the webservers were being brought to their knees.
If I run this race next year, you better believe that I'm going to be standing by in the "ready" position (sitting in front of the computer with website up & mouse in hand - Click, click, click! ;-) ) at 7:50 am on race registration day.
Looks like pals @Coach_Jenn, Bryan F., & Lisa R., will also be running the 10-Miler as well. Congrats everybody on getting in!
