At first, I was really disappointed not to be running in 2013. After a tough year in the running community with the cancellation of the NYCM and the bombing at the Boston Marathon, I was looking forward to experiencing running NYC with the amazing energy of runners coming together from all over the world to run a great course. Plus, I got a taste of what it might feel like at the finish line last year, I can't wait to experience it for real.
|It's going to be magical.|
So this is going to be my year to really buckle down and improve myself as a runner. Rather than waiting for New Year's, what better way to end a year of training than at the finish line of the New York City Marathon? I'm not sure how many times I will be able to run the NYCM. If I only get one shot, I want to make sure I'm actually at my best and really soak in every minute of it.

crossing the finish line.
On another note, I also scored my highest official score ever this last weekend with my horse. Seems like a great way to kick off my year of transformation, right?

Congratulations to everyone that crossed the finish line in NYC yesterday!
