It’s official. I am running the New York City Marathon later this year…. November 3rd, 2013. This is the second year in 2 years that I am embarking on an extensive training regiment that will end in Central Park.
Last year, I did not get in through the yearly lottery so I decided to join the Team for Kids organization and raise money to get a chance to run the race. After a summer of training and raising over $3500, the race was ultimately canceled due to Hurricane Sandy.
An emotionally and physically event, I am excited that I will be running this year. After the Boston Marathon bombing and events, this marathon will be very important and I am glad to be part of it. With that, wish me luck with my training and hope I stay healthy.
Stay tuned as I let you know how my training updates go.
