my spring will be less pink than normal

My worries from last year came true this year: the Cherry Blossom 10-Miler's lottery system didn't select Brad and me.

Does it matter that we've run this race for five consecutive years?
Can we qualify for it and skip the lottery?
Doesn't anyone care that it was the first race we ever ran and therefore it is dear to our hearts?
Shouldn't being the race's biggest fans count for something?

No, no, no, and NO.

I'm so bummed.

i think you can check the race message board for people who got in but aren't able to run for whatever reason... and there's ALWAYS Craigslist! The lottery system is a bummer- I'm not really sure why they do it that way instead of first come first serve.
