Off To NYC

I fly out to New York City tonight for the marathon this weekend. I've probably never been less enthusiastic about a race. I don't really want to go to New York alone all that much, i'm not especially fit, and i'm still a little nervous about the fire situation in southern California given that new Santa Ana winds are supposed to blow in this weekend. Plus, i really, really hate air travel.

Hypothetically, i think the race will be the most interesting that i've run. The big marathons i've run have all had their own unique character. Chicago really showcases the city and they have a runner's course. San Francisco has the Golden Gate and the beautiful city. Boston is Boston. But i expect this one will just have a little more of everything. The elite field is also far and away the best of any marathon i've run.
