Bitter sweet - London

I got rejected for the Flora London Marathon. It is a bittersweet feeling because I thought it would be a wonderful way to see London and was in a way hoping to qualify for the ballot. However on another note, it would be a rather expensive marathon as I have to travel all the way to London. Now that I have been rejected, I can come up with different plans for the beginning part of next year. Moreover, up till now, I only think that I can finish a marathon but have never ran above 30k before. In a way, the rejection might have save me some pain. Below is the rejection letter...
