NY Marathon 2014 baby!

NYC-Marathon(1)The NYRR finally came to a decision a few weeks ago about what to do for the people who were signed up to do the cancelled 2012 NY marathon.  They offered 5 different options:

  • $255 Refund
  • Guaranteed Entry into 2013 NY Marathon payment required
  • Guaranteed Entry into 2014 NY Marathon payment required
  • Guaranteed Entry into 2015 NY Marathon payment required
  • Guaranteed Entry in this years NY 1/2 marathon payment required

Since I will be a little busy in November with IM Arizona. Here is my choice…. drum roll please!!!! Who’s joining me?

nyrr choice

It was pretty good of them to offer a full discount considering they are not required to.  I just wasn’t sure if I would ever qualify again and didn’t want to give up the chance to finally run it!  I believe my new qualifying time (including moving to the next old age group 🙂 ) would be 1:34 for a half , that would mean shaving 4 minutes off my previous time or 18 seconds per mile….perhaps doable but why risk it.  The qualifying times are in the link below.
