NYC Half Rejection
Just when I thought I could have a chance to run the NYC Half for the 5th consecutive year, the journey has come to an end. Well, I didn't get accepted to the NYC Half Marathon Lottery. Initially, I was hoping to use this race as a tune-up for the Eastern States 20M and Boston. But damn, sometimes I wish I had the ability to hit a 1:23. Yup, so much for wishful thinking Moz!
Some runners state that for a half marathon, this race does cost an arm and a leg. Personally, regardless of price, I genuinely love racing this course. The bad news has certainly freed up my BB race calendar. Perhaps another local race or scoring some tickets to the Knicks/Rockets game.
