Finding out I'm in!

It's 3:50 am getting ready to head out the door for my workout before INSANITY BC Training, the first thing I do is look into my e-mail see if there's anything from Alcatraz........"No Way" I see there's an e-mail I open it right away and this is what I read

Hi Danniela
Congratulations on being selected in the first round of the 2014 Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon lottery.  The names of those selected have been posted. Please read this email CAREFULLY before looking for your name on the list...
OMG, I can't believe it I tear up, I get out the door as fast as I can (I didn't want to wake up everyone with my excitement), get in my car turn on 9.57 The Rock and jam out all the way to my Studio where I jump out of my car get inside and dance around and whoooohooooooooing as loud as I can (there's no one there). Then jump on the dreadmill for a 5 mile run. I can't believe it. Now to talk to my hubby about this when I get home.
 A little history I've been trying to get into this for 5 years and of course last year being prego wasn't going to fly.  
Persistence is probably the single most common quality of high achievers. They simply refuse to give up. They longer you hang in there, the greater the chance that something will happen in your favor. No matter how hard it seems, the longer you persist the more likely your success.

I'm so "Excited"!!
