NYC Marathon Scavenger Hunt

So, there was a contest today on the New York City Marathon Website.  Today is "Marathon Monday Mania" and they are having a contest where you can get early entry into the 2011 New York City Marathon.  I decided to try.

First, I had to enter the lottery for the 2011 Marathon, which I did.

Second step, go through this list of "Scavenger Hunt" items and pick one.  Get your photo taken doing it and then upload it to the Marathon Monday Mania Facebook page.

You could get your photo taken at Subway or Dunkin Donuts, for example.  I didn't really want to leave work All of this has to be done by 3:00pm, btw.  I checked the list of objects you could get your photo with - Emerald Nuts, Gatorade, Powerbars, a box from Tiffany & Co....  I scoured our office and what do WE have here?  Coors Light.  Of all of the possibilities, mine was, of course, booze.

So, here I am, with my beer in the middle of the afternoon at work (yes, that is my office).

... and here's hoping I get in to the NYC Marathon!!  The results of this little escapade will be available tomorrow, but if I don't get in tomorrow, I won't know until April.

If they had gotten me tomorrow, I'd have had my watch with me. But, today's not a running day, so my Timex watch is at home :(

How fun! You should have sat in a more officey looking area to really top it off. This could pass for kitchen or bar to me ;) fingers crossed for you!!
