    Be more positive. I can imagine worse outcomes. For example, you enter the ballot, you'll get a yes. Then you'll train all year because you really want to beat your last year's time. You think of nothing else and on the day of the event, after a few months of glorious weather, it suddenly starts raining cats and dogs with strong headwinds and you get cramp along the way. You get to the finishing line really pissed off...


    ... but then you cool down and put things into perspective and apply for the next year's ballot.

    Just entered the ballot as well...it's the third time I've entered and I wasn't successful in the previous two, so I won't hold my breath. If it doesn't work out, I'll jump on with Boxie at Kingston.

    ^This, then you don't have all the hassle of getting to the start and following the whole route. Also you feel like a boss, because you are fresh as a daisy and they have all done 50 miles.
