I've appreciated the response to my post about the NYC Half Marathon. Some people disagree with me and I expected that. My feelings about the course are based only on my limited experience with NYRR races - I've simply come to expect better organization from them. Had this been anywhere else, I'm sure I wouldn't have thought twice about it. I DID remember one more gripe about the music: where was the New York, New York theme?? They crank that tune at the start of at least half their races but didn't play at THE NYC Half-Marathon? Or did I just miss it?
I've added a couple new blogs to my Bloglines. (I'll eventually get around to adding my subscribed blogs in my sidebar, but that's not high-priority.) Lia's blog, From Mile to Marathon, currently chronicles her efforts toward her first half-marathon, being run this September 3rd. Go Lia! Everybody drop by her blog and give her a shout out for luck. Looking forward to her race report.
Incessant Ramblings is a more general-life blog from a new runner, but has plenty of entries about her climb toward her first -yes VERY FIRST - road race, a 5K this upcoming weekend. Then, next weekend, she'll be tackling a 4-miler in Central Park. I'll be out there cheering you on!
The weather here has been grey and rainy, drizzly crap and does not feed into any motivation to run. We're supposed to get a one-day break from the crap tonight and tomorrow, so I hope to get out for that five-miler I didn't run yesterday.
