New York City Marathon

…I have a love hate relationship with this marathon.

This was about 3 weeks after Chicago. I wasn’t sore anymore but I wasn’t expecting to do as well as I did. Considering the course of the marathon, hills and bridges, I thought I was going to do worse than I did in Chicago. However, I’m impressed with how well I did, not to far off my Chicago time but definitely not my best marathon time.

I will say this, The New York City Marathon is the first marathon I have run in where I had great running weather and great crowds! I loved the energy of the crowds especially when we got off the bridges and as soon as we made our way into the last mile. The energy was spectacular and makes you keep running. Seriously one of my favorite parts of the race experience.
