Race Report: 2016 TCS New York City Marathon

Alas, blogging has gotten a way from me a bit over the last month. With the last round of long runs on top of an otherwise crazy schedule, I fell behind in blogging but luckily not in training.

Race Report: 2016 Queens 10K

So I'm just back from today's Front Runners New York Pride Run, but still catching up on a race report from last Saturday's Queens 10K.

Race Report: 2016 New York Mini 10K

I was so excited to participate in this year's Mini 10K. This was the 45th running of this race that was started in 1972 when then president of NYRR and founder of the NYC Marathon Fred Lebow convinced a sponsor to start a "mini" marathon (or 10K) just for women. The confusing name is actually a reference to miniskirts and not the distance. All throughout the course, there were many women with bibs pinned to their backs showing that this was the 15th, 20th, 25th, etc. time that they had run this particular race and it was so inspiring to see these amazing women who have been running consistently for such a long period of time.
