NYC Marathon Sunday – 2008
Today is the day folks. It’s Marathon Sunday. It’s an exciting and special day here in NYC! As a runner, living in the city, i always feel a special bond with every single person running. Yes, even those elite runners who can run a 5 min mile. That can be me. Well, it can. In my own mind. Only in my own mind.
The weather is stellar today. The sun is shining and it is 38 degrees. Yikes, i thought it was in the 80’s. Again, only in my mind.
The entire city comes out today. To watch, cheer and trip a runner. Yikes. Only in my mind folks. There will be no tripping of runners today. No falling and having to stop the garmin. Just pure amazing crazy ass running. All shapes and sizes too. How wonderful is that?
I love this day. I always have and always will. I feel encouraged and proud that i can call myself a runner. So, lets all root for the runners and bring them to the finish line healthy and proud. Laura over at Absolutey Fit included this amazing quote on her blog!
“Run the first 10 miles with your head, the next 10 with your legs, and the last 6.2 with your heart.”
I will go on my run now. A 6 miler perhaps? Today, i am running my marathon!!
Here are my splits from yesterdays run: I think its my fastest 5 miler so far!
GO RUNNERS GO!!!
