meow!

I’m a little late with my race recaps, so I’ll get to it!  A little over 2 weeks ago I completed race 8 of 9 to qualify for the 2015 NYC Marathon.  This race benefited God’s Love We Deliver which is a great cause so check out their website.  This is probably my least favorite Central Park course to run because it is so darn hilly.  If you live in NY and have run Central Park before you know what I mean.  It is the inner loop of Central Park and starts around 72nd street on the east side.  If you see this guy on your left side early on in the race you know your in trouble.  That infamous Cat Hill!  Every time I see him I wish I had some of that silly string spray to spray at him because I know I am in for a doosey of a race.

This course is just hill after hill after hill.  I just kept thinking in my head as my son always says “are we there yet”Image-1 because it felt like the never ending race.  I think the hills made me pick up a little bit of speed because I just wanted to get it over with.

Overall it was a nice fast race, and I was back in bed catching some Z’s by 11am which is always a plus.  A few more pics:
