For more backstory on my NYC Half experience this year go here.
Back in the fall when I entered the lottery I didn’t think I would get in for a second year in a row. I thought I would have to wait to go run those 13.1 miles again. (Really, I thought I had better odds wining a trip the MLS Cup in Toronto to watch the Sounders.)
Instead, the $145 charge came through on my credit card. I forgot the drawing was yesterday, so I looked on the NYRR website. Sure enough, it wasn’t an error. A few hours later the email showed up in my inbox to officially tell me I’m going back NYC for a rematch.
This time I will not fall in a pothole and I will run a sub 2:05. This is going to be hard, painful and frustrating. But I want this PR more than anything. I will run the NYC Half in 2:05 or faster. I know I have it in me and I will not fail like I did last time.
New York, I am coming for you!
