It’s a new year which means I start thinking about races I want train for and run this year. My favorite races are in the fall in big cities. I’ve run the TCS New York Marathon once before, but I loved it so much I HAVE to do it again. It’s the biggest marathon in the world, and it’s one of the World’s Major Marathons.I dare any runner to start running across the bridge in Staten Island to Frank Sinatra’s “New York New York” and NOT get goosebumps… OR … finally make it into Manhattan in Harlem at mile 16 and hear “Empire State of Mind” with crowds 20 people deep on each side and not have to hold back a tear or two. It’s so magical.
Registration for the lottery will be January 15th to February 15th with results posted shortly after that. I put in for this race for four years before I finally was able to run it, but I know several people who have gotten chosen the first time they entered the lottery. Who wants to give it a try with me?
