Woot! Just signed up for my guaranteed entry to the NYC Marathon for 2008.
I got in for 2007 but deferred since my buds didn’t. I am very excited; the last time I ran a road marathon for time was back in ’04 I believe. (Note: I don’t consider pacing the same. Yes, I was running those marathons for a time, but it wasn’t my time per se. In other words, I haven’t chosen a time goal for myself and made it a training focus since a string of three bad marathons in a row knocked me off that horse.)
The variation in training –trails, triathlon– has made this something to look forward to again.
Don’t you love that?
