2017 TCS NYC Marathon Recap – Getting to the Starting Line

I had tons of fun in the NYC leading up to the big day However, I came to New York to run a marathon. There are so many reasons to run the NYC Marathon. One of them is that it happens on the day we turn our clocks back an hour. So, you get an extra hour of sleep! Second, the race starts late for a marathon. So, you get to sleep in even without the time change. I don’t think I’ve ever had as much sleep on the night before a race than I had for the NYC Marathon. On the night before the race, I thought about sleeping an extra half hour from my original plan. But, I woke up at 5am without the alarm. I laid in bed for about 15 minutes before deciding to just get up and get ready. Before I knew it, I was ready to head out to the buses. Read more ›

Hoping I Didn’t Do Too Much the Day Before the NYC Marathon

So, after the Abbott Dash to the Finish Line 5K, I realized that I had plenty of time to head back to my hotel, shower, change and make it to Madison Square Garden for the All Access Tour. I was feeling great after the 5K. So, I thought….why not? Read more ›

Abbott Dash to the Finish Line 5K was Too Much Fun for Words!

So, on the day before the NYC Marathon, I was up a little early to run in the Abbott Dash to the Finish Line 5K. I was pretty excited for this race from the moment I first heard about it. This run would serve as my final run before the big marathon. I took it light and easy. I planned on using my marathon run/walk intervals with occasional stops for pics. There was no need to burn up all my energy on the 5K. The whole reason I signed up for this race was to get to the finish line feeling good. Since both this 5K and the NYC Marathon finish at the same place, I thought this race would be good because I’d get to that finish line at least once with a huge smile on my face and feeling good.

From Top of the Rock to the NYC Marathon Expo – NYC Marathon Trip Report

There’s so much to cover on this trip because I really did cram all I could of NYC into this trip. So, I’m going to have to divide a few of the days into parts. For Day 2, this is totally necessary and you’ll see why.

I deliberated a lot before heading to New York about whether or not to hit up both the Top of the Rock AND the Empire State Building. Once I found out that the New York Pass did not cover the Tour of NBC Studios, it made things really easy. I should start my trip at the Top of the Rock (so I can actually see Central Park in the daylight) and end my trip at the Empire State Building. Read more ›
