Getting ready for New York City Marathon
Sunday I will be running the NYC Marathon for the first time. I gotta admit I am pretty excited about it. Since training and running the GORE-TEX TransRockies Run, I have been feeling great and have gained some speed too. I have high hopes for a great race in NYC. On my last run before NYC I had a good one. I just relaxed and went for a 7 mile loop. Everything is feeling good. I have my weapon of choice picked out the Nike Lunar Eclipse. After my knee gave me a little trouble on Monday in the Nike Pre, it was virtually gone in the Eclipse. The shoes feel great. I am focusing on staying relaxed for NYC and trying to enjoy the event without clouding it with expectations. I want to continue to run faster and would love to beat my Baltimore marathon time of 3:45:32 two weeks ago but, more than that I want to enjoy running an event as big and celebrated as the NYC Marathon. I can always focus on the Phoenix Marathon in January for a new PR.
Speaking of the TransRockies run Juda and I got some coverage in the Washington Running Report, check it out…
Believe in the run.

Have a great race, and hope the Eclipse work out well. You’ve had a massive year and this will cap it off in style. Well done!
Thanks Ian, it has been a great year. I look forward to a nice 2011 too. Do you have any of you 2011 races picked out yet?
I’m in for Paris in the springtime – 3.15 goal!
That sounds great. Last year Dan Norton got stuck over there after the marathon for a month because of the the volcano ash. If you want to pick his brain on the Paris marathon and you don’t already have his twitter handle it’s @dnorton
