So, I’m back home. I don’t have much time, but I wanted to pop in just to say that I made it through the New York City Marathon in 5:28:01. Sadly, that means I won’t be able to change the banner, as City of Oaks is still my marathon PR. I’ve already decided that I’m going to run New York City again, but probably not next year.
The Race Report is going to take some time. I’m feeling better about the race than I thought I would, considering I missed all 3 of my goals. I’m still slightly disappointed in my time, especially since I know this one was my fault. On the plus side, I know exactly what I did wrong. I’ll go into more details in the full Race Report.
One thing that I have to say, the crowd support was absolutely amazing. It was so much fun running through the city, even on the miles when I wasn’t feeling so great. I shouldn’t really be surprised, but I’m proud of how New York City showed up on Sunday, and I’m proud to say that I was born there.
That’s why I’m determined to run NYC again. I know I can fix what I did wrong, and the spectators were the best.
