127 NYRR Team Championships – 32:33

The NYRR Team Championships is a really fun day in the Park. All the teams come out and cheer in massive crowds. In order to race you need to be part of a NYRR sanctioned team. A lot of the team went up to Inwood after work on Friday to a free event The Met was putting on. Dinner was held at Indian Road Cafe, a very cute and unique neighborhood hangout. I opted for the linguine as the server said it was... read more

126 NYC TRI – 2:27:37

The NYC Triathlon is my favorite race hands down. Home field advantage, great course, all my friends race or spectate and we have a fun after party (of course).  This year was my fifth attempt. RACE DAY I was up at 5:30-6ish as Abbe had a long run she needed to hit and she wanted to beat the heat. We had some coffee and then we each set out on our way. My heat was set to roughly go off at 7:30 so my plan... read more

NYRR Mini 10k – Spectator Report

The NYRR Mini 10K is a women’s only race that has been held since 1972. It is of significant importance in women’s running history. Just three weeks after its inaugural running Title IX was signed. The Battalion had 8 females racing, so the men were going to go cheer! I crashed at Dougie’s as a lot of the gals were having a sleepover at my place. We ended up leaving at 6:30AM to report... read more

125 Brooklyn Half Marathon – 1:23:41

Why do I like the Brooklyn Half? Because I break the course up into three distinct sections. Section 1 (Miles 1-3): Straightaways with acute angle turns. Section 2 (Miles 4-7): The rolling hills of Prospect Park. Section 3 (Miles 8-13.1): The flat, straight shot, direct injection into the beach. Dougie, Danika and Maddie met Abbe and I at our place and the 5 of us jumped a cab to Brooklyn. Once there we... read more

124 The Boston Marathon – 3:18:17

After running Boston in the historically horrible heat of 2012 I was very reluctant to come back. A few years later though, I was enticed. I had forgotten how hard the course was and was excited by the buzz and possibility to run again in the most noble of running races. I trained my face off and BQ’d in Paris last year, which gained me entry. Abbe and I, along with Dougie and Danika, arrived... read more
