27 Jan NYC Women's 1/2 Marathon
I haven’t done this race in a few years, but it’s a really fun evening and day in NYC with the girls. It’s a 2 loop course in Central Park, sort of hilly, but well supported and fun. It fits in perfectly with training for the Eagleman 70.3 on June 9th and will make sure I start doing the necessary milage. You might be able to do a 5k without too much training, even a 10k, but for a 1/2 marathon it’s important to get in those higher milage days so you don’t hurt yourself. Beyond 6-7 miles it’s important to build slowly and get your body used to going longer, increasing 1 mile per week. Lucky for me I still have a few more weeks of unstructured training especially because with the snow on the ground I’m forced to make friends with the treadmill! So if there are any of you that are interested in this race, let’s join up and have a blast!
