I’m pretty happy about these 2 races. The weather was perfect and I was able to avoid hitting the wall. I improved my half-marathon time about 30 minutes since May. I’m just guessing here, but I probably won’t be able to keep this up. The other good news is that this was my ninth NYRR race of the calendar year, so I automatically qualify for next year’s NY Marathon (2005).
