Yes, I do feel sorry for those runners who had been training and traveled from far away for the NY Marathon this year. Obviously you can't stop Mother Nature, but I do wonder if the decision to cancel could have been made earlier. Anyways, that's a discussion for another day...
I think NY is such a famous event that it's probably on most people's lists who have even thought about running a marathon. Plus I've always wanted to visit NY, so it would be ticking off 2 things in one go!
So the marathon distance isn't enough of a challenge anymore? How did your first Ultra go? I have to say I'm not tempted at all to go those extra miles!
Wow! Those are some great photos and amazing experiences you've had. I don't know what else could possibly be on your list, but is there anything you still dream to do? (Besides win this competition and run a sub 3:30 marathon of course! )
I would love to do NY marathon and I know you've said before you've done that. Any tips on that race in particular?
I like the last two pictures, they really made me laugh. They're almost like before and after pictures. Boston photo - "Before I ran 2 marathons in a week." London photo - "After I got a PB and ran another marathon 6 days later."
Can't say the look on your face in the London photo is really inspiring me to run a marathon though...
Sorry if you've said this already and I missed it, but out of curiosity, what was your time at London?
You've got my vote and I definitely hope you get through as I have a feeling you might have a few more interesting experiences to share!
I was wondering as well if you run with a Garmin or something similar and find this helpful. I'm rubbish at judging distances so when I have ran outside I've tried to use an app on my phone to record my distance but have had problems with it freezing mid-run. Although of course I didn't notice until I got back home and it can be very frustrating to look forward to seeing your time/distance and realise the app stopped after the first 10 minutes! Can you suggest any apps or do you think a Garmin is worth the expense for a beginner?
