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.
