Happy New Year!
It's been a rough couple of post-marathon months thanks to a bout of patellar tendonitis on my right knee, but it looks like my running is finally on back on track. I've been able to handle running 25-30 miles/week, which puts me in a good spot to start training for the New York City Half Marathon in March. I'm pretty pumped for this one since I qualified for guaranteed entry and was able to skip out on the lotto. Plus, I haven't attempted to run a half marathon at an all-out race pace since my ill-fated attempt at the Brooklyn Half Marathon last May. Watch out, sub-2 hour half marathon, I am coming for you!
|Marathon training might be time consuming, but it's so worth it.|
Except for spinning once or twice a week, the biking is going to have to be put on hold until spring. It's hard enough to run in the cold, but getting on the bike? Forget it! I guess I'm just not that hardcore.
Since I have all of these big plans for 2012, I thought there was only one fitting way to kick off my New Years celebration - a midnight run!

2012 is going to be a fabulous - I just know it!
