Running to work

So I ran to work this morning  - a little over 10 miles. It was a beautiful morning and since I missed out on my long weekend run (I volunteered at the NYC Half-Marathon instead), I thought it was a good idea to get a longish run in this Monday morning. I always track my runs using Nike+GPS app on my iPhone, so here is a short little video of the whole experience.

Manhattan Half Marathon In The Snow

 

The year has started with more and more running. I am hoping to qualify for the New York Marathon in 2013 by running the New York Road Runner’s 9+1 series (nine races + volunteer at one race).

So far I have raced the Joe Kleinerman 10K at 44:20 minutes and last weekend I ran the snowy and slushy Manhattan Half Marathon in 1:42:20. Both times were PR’s, but I had hoped for a faster time in the half – still plenty of time till the Brooklyn Half on May 19th.

I have started reading Hal Higdon’s book on Marathon training like half-a-million people before me, which gives good advice on tempo runs, long-runs and rest days. Hopefully I can remain injury free this year after last years knee problems.

And hopefully I’ll post some new music soon too

Peace
