The NYC Half Marathon is this week!
I’m ready to feel the excitement of yet another big city race. This race literally runs The City. It is the second best thing to the full NYC Marathon, which I will be running in 2014. Just like its (bigger) counterpart, the half has thousands and thousands of runners, live broadcast, and a whole bunch of happy-go-lucky runners from all over the world 🙂 I can’t wait to run through Times Square! I’m particularly excited for this race since my last “bigger” city race, the MCM, was just so awful. I mean it was just the most boring course (other than the .25 miles in Georgetown) and definitely put me off running any more races in D.C. Well that and living there this past summer. Blech.
So it’s only appropriate that I put together a high energy playlist for my run on Sunday. I’m gonna need to be pumped up, since I won’t be sleeping much this week. I am finishing my dissertation to send to my committee by Friday and then we are going out Friday night in the City. Oh yeah, and I’m going wedding dress shopping at Kleinfelds and Monique Lhuillier on Saturday. So I’m not expecting to run the best race since I won’t be preparing per se. More like running on absolutely no sleep. But I’m just excited to have a bib for this coveted race! Here are some of the jams I’m adding to my ipod:
