how do you like them apples?

Go BIG or go home in the BIG APPLE!

If all goes well for the next 242 days, I will be one of 50,000 running all 5 boroughs of the Big Apple on November 6, 2016 at the New York City Marathon.Screen Shot 2016-03-09 at 10.24.43 AM

I’m relieved to say, it was actually Mike who convinced me to register… After the excitement of Chicago, I thought I’d chill-out this year but the NYC marathon has been on my running bucket list so Mike said what’s the harm in trying? (Like Chicago and other big races, it’s a lottery which I tried and failed at three times before so I think he assumed it was not going to happen). Hah! I’m in.

Convo with Mike:
Me: I got in! This will make 2 out of 6 for the World Marathon Majors
M: Awesome, what are the 6?
Me: Chicago, New York, London, Berlin, Tokyo and Boston … (Boston you qualify based on time, it’s not a lottery)
M: Well, you can at least try for the first 5…

No plans have been set in place but I am pretty excited! Marathon five + five boroughs = dreamy.

What about you – have you singed up for anything lately?

psst. Sadly, the NYC marathon lottery closed so I can not invite you to run with me however it is not too late for Chicago. Best.Race.Ever. I found this video yesterday of last year’s race and it gave me goosebumps… I was there!
