NYRR Grete’s Great Gallop 10K 2017

This past summer, I decided I needed to throttle back from my long distance running. I ran NYC, Tokyo, and Boston back to back to back, so after the Brooklyn Half Marathon, I took a race hiatus. Now that summer has come to a close, it was time to return to those well worn running paths to continue my 9+1 with Grete’s Great Gallop 10K.

NYRR AirBnB Brooklyn Half Marathon 2017

Over the past few years, the NYRR AirBnB Brooklyn Half Marathon has become the largest half marathon in the world. 27,455 sold out entries were sold out in under a half hour for the privilege of running 13.1 miles in the middle of the borough. Regardless of having to go out to Brooklyn to pick up my bib at the “pre-party,” I was looking forward to running it again.

NYRR Japan Run 4M 2017

After a cold, rainy Saturday, we woke up early Sunday morning to a slightly chilly, cloudy Mother’s Day morning. Andrea and I headed down to Central Park to start our day with a loop around Central Park for the annual Japan Day run for New York Road Runners.

NYRR UAE Healthy Kidney 10k 2017

With a week to go before the Boston Marathon, the last “long” run for my taper was set to be six miles. The same weekend, New York Road Runners had their annual UAE Healthy Kidney 10k, which I decided would be the perfect way to get in that last six mile run – plus an extra .2 miles – in preparation for the marathon.

NYRR Run to Breathe 4M 2017

About a month ago, I ran the Tokyo Marathon, and I am weeks away from the Boston Marathon, but I need to start looking to my future races. Now that it is warming up, I wanted to start doing my 9+1 for the 2018 NYC Marathon, so I ran the Run to Breathe 4M.

NYRR Race to Deliver 4M 2016

Having completed the NYC Marathon on November 6, I was one race away from completing my 9+1 to get automatic entry into the 2017 NYC Marathon. With the number of races to run in dwindling, I chose to run one more race in Central Park to complete my registration requirements with the Race to Deliver 4M.

NYRR Queens 10K 2016

New York Road Runners has two big races every year – the NYC Half Marathon and the NYC Marathon – and the easiest way to enter each is to run a number of qualifying races the prior year to enter each. The NYRR Queens 10K, which has replaced the Queens Half Marathon in recent years, is one of the NYRR’s five borough series and a qualifier for both.

NYRR AirBnB Brooklyn Half Marathon 2016

In my progression towards the 9+1 for the 2017 NYC Marathon, I headed out to Brooklyn, NY for the “largest half marathon” at 27,410 people. Regardless of the enmity everyone seems to have going to the “pre-party” that forced us out to Brooklyn to pick up our bibs, the race itself was something I was looking forward to.

NYRR UAE Healthy Kidney 10k 2016

On the road to the 2017 NYC Marathon, I took to the roads of Central Park for the UAE Healthy Kidney 10k. After running three identical four mile races, I was looking forward to running a different course, even if it was longer and ran up Harlem Hill.

NYRR Japan Run 4M 2016

On a rainy Sunday morning, I headed towards Central Park in NYC for my third New York Road Runners race of the year. My third NYRR race and my third four mile race of the year. As race time approached, we hid under the small tents in the Japan expo area, trying to stay dry before the race started. As 8am approached, we headed to our corrals for the Japan Run 4M.
