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.
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!

That is SUPER exciting Meg!! I loved reading about Chicago- can’t wait to hear about this one too!
Thanks! I am excited but I guess it means I’ll have to train. Ugg.
