Cherry Blossom 10 Mile Run: The Lottery

I’m not sure if I had mentioned it before or not, but a few weeks ago some friends and I entered the lottery for the Cherry Blossom 10 Mile Run and this morning we found out WE GOT IN!

Cherry BlossomI’ve heard great things about this race and had been looking for another race in DC since I loved running through that area during the Marine Corp Marathon and can’t wait to do it again!

Time to book a hotel and make some dinner reservations!  And I’m hoping I’ll have more time to do some DC touristy stuff since I won’t be as concerned about “saving my legs” for a 10 mile run versus a full marathon!

Anyone else running Cherry Blossom this year or run it in the past??

  1. So cool, congrats! I hope to enter the Nike’s & Cherry Blossom lottery next year since we are moving to Maryland! I was told that if you enter the Cherry Blossom 3 times you automatically get in the following year so hopefully I will get in before we move again:-)

  2. this must be amazing! I love DC in general, but DC this time of year is perfect. Also, I’m convinced everyone in DC is a runner. Everytime I’m there it appears to be a very active city, but I would probably run more often if I lived in a place that offered that much to look at 🙂 You’re going to do great! congrats!

  3. Fear not, I will be on Cherry Blossom watch and will give you regular updates about their status. I haven’t entered the lottery before, but I might volunteer this year.
