For some reason, I feel like I haven't ran that many races this year. I will have to look at my chart when I get back to determine how many I've done this year compared to previous years. I have my eye on running the Disneyland Half next year and I will be throwing my name in the NYC Marathon lottery to see if I can get in. Watching the NYC Marathon this past weekend on TV really made me want to be there. I will likely write another post solely talking about the process for getting into NYCM. For sure, I want to sign up for more halves. I would like to run a faster half which may help me run a faster full. Overall, I want to get closer to a Boston Qualifying time even if it takes me a while to accomplish. Be back soon!
|I leave you with this beautiful photo of the pool at the hotel where I recently stayed. There is a running trial on the other side of that fence parallel to those palm trees.|
|Some really good food can be had here. Sorry, no photo because I was at a business dinner and didn't want to be a weirdo who takes photos of my food. Maybe when I get to know these people better...LOL.|
|Some unexpected but beautiful fireworks from aboard the naval ship that was parked next to the Top of the Market restaurant.|
|Finally, I "won" these Heart Thrive bars in Date and Chocolate Chip (flavors I picked out) from Skinnyrunner. I put parenthesis around won because I wasn't actually the initial winner that she selected randomly but that person didn't claim these. And after some begging and groveling, she gave these to me. I will give my options on these in another post.|
