We did the damn thing! I’ve been saying whatever it takes and that was the rule for the day. When you’ve only had time to train for a half marathon and a full marathon is on your plate, what do you do? You suck it up and eat those miles. That was hard. After the […]
And the winner of the “hills challenge” is Prospect Park. Mind you, Central Park is still a challenging course, but it’s getting second place for now. Chilly morning, but very mild wind today. In mile three I had a bad fall when this “boy” (yes I demoted his stupid butt) crossed in front of me […]
