I wish I could say that it has been easy to get back to working out and running since having a baby. It has been so hard to figure out a good time on works days. But ready or not, I have a few races to run.
When we decided to make the move to NYC one of the first things that I added to the list of things we have to do is the NYRR 9+1 program to get into the NYC marathon. The program is to run 9 races and volunteer once all within one year and then you are able to get into the marathon. There is little chance that I would be able to get into this marathon otherwise so I am super excited to have the opportunity to do this program.
Saturday we went out in the mist/rain to run the first of nine races. It was my first race post-baby. And my longest post-baby run.
We then mapped out our strategy for finishing the program and timing our next eight races. Sunday is our second race. Spring is going to be busy as I don't want to chance being able to get into the 2014 marathon! Goals are good.
