|Happy belated birthday Dr. Seuss!|
I had a fabulous race day today! Today was my first New York Road Runners race of 2014. NYRR offers automatic entry into the New York City marathon through a program known as 9 + 1. Runners that compete in 9 scored runs and volunteer for 1 race receive automatic entry into the next years NYC Marathon. So today I started out my journey towards the 2015 NYC Marathon with a relatively easy and super fun St. Patty's Day themed 5K in Washington Heights.

It's always fun to repeat races to see how much you've improved. This time last year I was training for my very first half marathon, and looked at the runners that continued to run after the race like they were slightly insane. This year I ran down the West Side Highway back to CeCe's apartment, about 4 miles, after the race. It was a little cold since I was no longer running at a racing pace, but it was beautiful.
