4:30 or Bust: A Quest for Marathon Mediocrity

NYRR Grand Prix

with one comment

I’m a bit behind with my running news, but a few weeks ago I received a package from NYRR recognizing my completion of the Half Marathon Grand Prix for 2008.  Last year was the first time I completed the full Grand Prix, finishing all five of the NYRR half marathons.  Do I get bonus points for also running the New York City Half Marathon?

Included was a nice letter, a patch, a drawstring backpack (perfect for wet and dirty running clothes after a good workout) and a finishers certificate.  The finishers certificate listed all of the races with my finishing times.  The only problem – some of the times on the certificate are mixed up and don’t quite match with the race they are listed next to, sort of like a homework assignments my 7 year old might bring home from school: Match the race on the left with the finishing time on the right!

Seriously though, I’m proud of the effort, especially since I will not be repeating this year as I already missed Bronx.
