5 series includes:
manhattan half marathon
brooklyn half marathon
staten island half marathon
bronx 10 mile
last year i did 3 of the 5, and this year i am planning on running 4 of the 5 (i missed the manhattan one at the beginning of the year.) the NYRR association has a new policy this year that if you run 4 of the 5 races in the series, you get automatic entry into the new york half marathon. sweet deal because it's hard to get into.
i haven't been running my best these past few weeks, and i'm a little nervous about this race. if you're a runner, then you know what i mean when i say that you really don't know how you are going to run until the first step. i pray that the first step in brooklyn on saturday feels good. real good.
my fastest pace for a half marathon is 8:06 minute mile on a hilly course. i'm still not sure how i did that, but i'd love to do it again.
maybe not this race, but someday.
this race i run for fun.
i don't have a lot of running breakdowns anymore, but i used to when i ran with my sister. she is WAY faster and all around...
a great runner.
she nicknamed my breakdowns "fat camp." i won't go into where that name came from.
now i just have a lot of moments like this.
happy running, folks.
