Every year in New York City, the marathon is a major event that runs 26.2 miles through all five boroughs. The second biggest race for the New York Road Runners is the NYC Half Marathon, a 13.1 race around Manhattan that 14,500 runners had to run four out of five of the previous year’s five borough races or enter via lottery. In 2012, I ran four of the races (Brooklyn, Bronx, Staten Island, and Queens) in order to run this year.
Every year, the New York Road Runners has their traditional football toss and four mile run through Central Park on Superbowl Sunday. For the first time, I chose to run the Gridiron Classic 4M on the morning of the big game to do my first NYRR race of the year.

Although the NYC Marathon was canceled this year, I wanted to continue to run. I trained for months for that race, but it’s not the only race and after a month I wanted to get back out on the courses, which I did for the Jingle Bell Jog.
Last year, I came back from the Disneyland Half Marathon to run the Staten Island Half Marathon. After doing well in Disneyland, I was able to come back to New York to run in the fifth and final of the Five Borough Series and set a personal record (PR). Just like last year, I came back from Disneyland, where I had set a new PR of 2:05:11, to run the Staten Island once more.
Having run quite a few races over the last couple years, people often ask me what my favorite race is. Having run quite a few 5ks, half marathons and marathons, I have a good perspective on different races, especially in New York, but I often say that my favorite race is the Fifth Avenue Mile.
One week after achieving a PR (personal record) at the Disneyland Half Marathon, I returned to New York to run my next race. To gain automatic entry into the 2012 ING NYC Marathon, I ran the next race in the Five Borough Series, the Bronx 10-Mile.
In order to get an automatic entry into the coveted New York Marathon, a runner can complete 9 races and volunteer for one, to complete what is called the 9+1. This guarantees a place in the following year’s marathon. For the NYC Half Marathon, there is a similar program, where a runner can run four out of five of the borough races and gain entry. This past weekend, the Queens 10K was one of these races.
On Sunday, The New York Road Runners and the New York Giants held their inaugural 5K at the Meadowlands Sports complex. A hot, sunny June day to take to the New Jersey parking lots, roads, and astroturf.
A year ago, I ran around Prospect Park and down Ocean Parkway to a finish line on Coney Island. 13.1 miles through Brooklyn on a quest to complete my second half marathon, and my first in New York. A year later, I returned to run it again in my quest to run in the 2013 New York marathon.
