In little less than 1 hour, the lottery for entry into the 2008 Ironman World Championships will close. And I will have declined my chance of entering once again. I am a dreamer but not yet. Since I really have no chance of qualifying via my age group, the lottery is the only way to go. I dream of being in Kona one day and finishing the crown jewel of all IM races but the timing isn't right this year so I'll wait another year. The wait could be painful but I'll be alright. I'm in no rush.
