4:30 or Bust: A Quest for Marathon Mediocrity

Looking ahead

with 2 comments

We may be a mere 36 hours from the start of the New York City Marathon, but I’m looking ahead to another big New York City sporting event – namely the New York City Triathlon.  Registration opens in a mere 2 hours and 35 minutes.  Need to stay up to make sure I get in.  Last year I tried to register.  I heard the race filled up quickly, so made sure to sign up on the first day of registration.  By the time I got to it, around 4pm, registration had filled up.  They filled all the spots in about 8 hours.  So, this year I’m not leaving it to chance.

At the end of the day, missing the registration last year was probably a good thing.  I am not a swimmer at all, and barely was able to get myself trained up to Sprint distance, let alone the Olympic distance of the NYC Tri.  With the experience of last years Philadelphia Sprint Triathlon (highly recommended, by the way) behind me, I think I’ll be able to get trained up for the Olympic distance by next summer.

Anyway, lots of time to worry about the training.  For today, just need to worry about getting registered!
