5th Ave Mile 2013 race review

The 5th Ave Mile is one of my favorite races.  Because it is only a mile.  The only race of the year I can finish in under 8 minutes.

New York City 10K 2013 race review


We decided to try a new race, the New York City 10k.  Maria had seen an ad online and asked if we wanted to sign up.  Looking at the website, they had a nice t-shirt and medal so Donna and I  were in.  Rich decided to do it and it would be his last race in NY before he moves back to England at the end of this year.  I had been meaning to sign up for the race but when I got around to it 2 weeks before the race it had reached its capacity of 2000 people and was sold out.  Hema had signed up to do it but could not get off work.  So I offered to buy her bib from her.

Rock 'n' Roll Philadelphia Half Marathon 2013 race...

Donna has made it a tradition to run the Rock 'n' Roll Philadelphia half marathon.  She has been running it since 2010.  Last year she was not able to do the race because her dad was leaving to go back to Australia that day.  I did it for the first time last year with Matt and Sarah.  It is a nice flat course and a fun weekend out of town so Donna, Hema, Lindsay, and I signed up.

Applecrest Half Marathon 2013 race review

In order to check New Hampshire off my list, I chose a small race in the country.  Sept 8, 2013 was the second running of the Applecrest Half Marathon, which started and finished at Applecrest Farm Orchard in Exeter, NH.
