I have been looking forward to today for months. Registration for the Chicago Marathon opened at noon. Yes, I have a few weeks before it's full, yes I can register when I get home, but, I logged on right at noon. I got out my credit card, ready to pay an outrageous amount of money to run through neighborhoods in the city that I normally wouldn't drive through. I am ready to train my body to take over for itself, to dig deep within itself to do something that only 1% of people ever even try to do. I am so ready.
CLICK HERE TO REGISTER!
I do. I click, fill in, click, fill in. It's all good.
I do. I fill in, I click. I fill in, I click.
CLICK SUBMIT -----> Next - print receipt
...this may take up to 3 minutes...
So I exit, and I try again.
finally give up and call my credit card, for which I submitted a large
payment today and have more than enough room on it
to fulfill this payment.
Are you kidding me?? I want to strangle the stupid voice on the other end of the line.
I'll have to wait 'til I get home. This bums me out to no end.
