I opted to go the 4/5 route since qualifying is really not in the cards for me anytime in the
Well the first race in Brooklyn didn't go so hot, when I unexpectedly got a bit sick on the course. The second race in Queens wasn't a blast either when I was fighting the tail end of a nasty cold in 80+ degree weather...and later discovered I was battling iron-deficiency as well. And the third race in the Bronx didn't even happen thanks to a brush with some tropical weather.
Here's hoping tomorrow's race goes much better! While weather.com is calling for highs of 84, the actual hourly doesn't look too scary for the am at least.
And at least I do have one factor on my side...

New shoes! These suckers only have about 30 miles on them from this week's workouts, so they should be nice and fresh for tomorrow.
This race will also be NYRR race #8 for me - so after this, I just have to run 1 more and I'm IN for the 2012 New York Marathon as well...
Fortunately, or maybe unfortunately, that does involve running the 2011 New York Marathon. But sshhh, we don't need to talk about that right now.
