This photo was taken after I finished my first half marathon in April 2008. In one week I am running the NYC Half Marathon!! The last time I ran a half was in 2009...eeek! I am actually really excited for the race! It's a great course-through Central Park, Times Square, and down the West Side Highway. I did an 8 mile run yesterday with my Alaska Marathon Training Group (longest training run I've done...oops. Haven't been the most diligent at training) and it felt good. We did 4 miles up the West Side Highway and 4 miles back. The 4 miles back were BRUTAL because we were running against the wind but nonetheless we finished strong and I am not sore today! Can't wait to run those 13.1 miles on Sunday!!
