Inspiration from the NY Marathon

Tuesday, November 05, 2013

It's my taper week, just 4 days from my second half marathon, T minus 4 and counting!

I'm drawing inspiration from the NYC Maratho. Here's some great signs:



Here's the fastest finisher I know, posing at mile 17. Paul finished in 4:20:59:


And here is Cindy, known as the Celtic Runner. I've never run with her. She's faster than I am. She finished in 5:20:56:


Here's Susan. I've run with her a lot. She runs 7 days a week and has for years. She is in charge of our half marathon on Saturday. She works for Interact Alliance, a drug prevention program, that is sponsoring the half. She is really fun to run with and a great encourager of us newbies. She finished in 5:35:56:


I've confirmed my ride and feeling confident about Saturday! Weather will be warm. Course will be hilly. I'm set to do good anyway!!

    Enjoy your half marathon. I have some links on my blog page to some inspirational New York City marathon news articles with some good photos. One is about a guy with Down's syndrome who completed the race if you're interested.

    emoticon Thanks for posting the pictures of the runners. You have some emoticon running buddies! Guess that's only to be expected 'cause you're awesome, too and the pack runs together.
