NYC Marathon photos

On Sunday, I ran the New York City Marathon. I’d been training hard for it with lots of intervals, strength training, and long runs, and was aiming for a PR. The course was pretty tough, and the hills at the end set me back a few minutes – I finished in 3:42. Not what I was hoping for, but I’m proud of my overall effort during the race.

The best part of the weekend wasn’t the actual race – it was seeing my friends on the course, meeting Will at the finish line, and knowing that several of my other friends were also out there pushing hard.

Here are some photos from the race weekend.

I found a really fast runner – look how low her bib number is! My friend Jessie from Wharton, who used to work for NYRR, got to start with the elite athletes

And look who was waiting at the finish line

  1. I was there in a pack of runners not far behind you. Just a few minutes in fact. I finished in 3:45:23. What a great day, and I agree, my favorite part was seeing family along the course. Well done!
