You Thought I Was Done With the Questions

So if you sign up for a race via the lottery system (that closed a couple of days ago) and they charge the race entrance fees to your account yesterday...does that mean you are in?

I know, you'll tell me to wait for the confirmation e-mail, but when it's your very first full marathon? Anxious doesn't even cover it...

Typically for lottery races, they take your credit card information when you enter your name but don't charge it unless you're chosen (otherwise they'd be giving a lot of people a lot of refunds).

I'd suspect you're in... but you better wait for the e-mail confirmation just to be sure. :-P

JP!!!! I had no idea you were going for the full!!!! Woooohoooooo. I'm so excited for you. I hope you're in.

As for your question, I have no idea. I've never entered a lottery. I would think it means you're in. If you you are not, I'm going to personally go to race headquarters and smack someone for giving you false hope. :)

Good luck, you're awesome!

I'm coming over from Mormon Mommy Blogs, asking for your help. I am in the running for a round trip airfare paid ticket to Connecticut, to meet a friend I became acquainted with through blogging. She is a super fun person and is holding this contest. I entered a funny story titled "Grapejuice Floaties, Now Marry Me." The person whose story receives the most votes will win a trip to meet this generous lady, whom I'm hoping to meet. The voting ends tonight-midnight. I used to be ahead but there is a story coming up from behind out of nowhere, and it's a tight race now. I would so much appreciate your help. Her blog is www.becausemomsaidso.blogspot.com and the voting is on the sidebar on the right. "Grapejuice, Floaties" Just go there and cast a vote for me, please. Thanks so much-you're awesome! ♥♥

Congrats on taking the plunge to the full!!! I am so excited for you and can't wait to follow your journey. It sounds to me like you are in, but I will be waiting anxiously for your confirmation. Happy thoughts going your way...

My husband was in the St. George lottery and his entry wasn't clear either. His name ended on a list but it was neither a confirm or deny list. He had to email and only then did the website make it clear that those listed had "won" the lottery.

So in my opinion, you have "won" the chance to run. Good luck
