Emerald Nuts Midnight Run 2009/2010

In order to ring in the New Year I decided to do the Emerald Nuts Midnight run in Central Park.  It is a 4 mile fun run held in every year at the turn of midnight on December 31st.  There are fireworks in the park as well.

NYRR Grand Prix half marathon series 2009 race rev...

I decided to set a goal of running a half marathon.  I had run a few short NYRR races in 2008 and decided 2009 would be the year I start training for a serious race.  The saw that they had a 5 boro series with a half marathon in each of the 5 boros at the time.  I decided why run 1 half marathon, why not do the whole series.  I later decided to try run all the half marathons in NYC that year, which included the 5 boro series, NYC half marathon, More/Fitness half marathon, and Grete's Great Gallop half marathon.  I ended up running 7 of the 8 of them.  These races ended up being a part my 9 + 1 qualifiers for the 2010 New York City Marathon.
