We will not be running in the Japan Day race this Sunday. Unfortunately due to a nasty cold that has taken root in my apartment both my sister and I have gotten sick.
Its always interesting to run in a new area, makes the distance not seem so daunting and it also can drive you absolutely bonkers. I know it was for a great cause but I don’t think that I want to be doing the Wall Street Run again, I have one word for you all – FRUSTRATING – why? TOURISTS. The course had us running along the street infront of the World Trade Center, there were tourist everywhere and I do mean everywhere ( yup the street – where we were trying to run). The most frustrating part was we became a toursit attraction – ugh! Yeah I know running in CP there are tons of tourist but its different because the runners rule!!!
Yes that is right WE are going to be running a minimum of 9 NYRR races this year and volunteering for one. Why you ask yourself for the simple reason Megan has got it in her head that we should qualify ourselves for the NYC 2010 Marathon, you know just in case we want to run it – keep the option open she said!
As such we have strategically planned our 2009 running schedule in NYC, our first race is tomorrow – May 19 – American Heart Association Start! Wall Street Run. This is an official run but I am not expecting a stellar time due in part to Megan and I running/walking – you see Leo (MegsMan) is participating with us and he isn’t a runner yet and we promised to do this race with him. We have decided to run a minute and walk a minute – we are anticipating a large crowd and tons of corporate walkers!
I will be posting a list of all the races sometime in the next couple of days.
Yes… we are still alive. New post with all the details to come in the next week or so. Meg and I are putting together a list of races for 2009 ( she has the insane idea that we need to run 9 qualifing runs so we can get an automatic entry in the 2010 NYC Marathon – certifiable she is) once we have it complete I will post the deets!!!!! I will tell you we have our first official race on May 19th — American Heart Association Run – Wall Street.
Okay talk to you all later.
