I'm a New York City Marathon finisher!

Medal on. Beer in hand.
AND I PR'ed -- 4:06:31!!! (A 7-minute PR! Which is also how much I PR'ed by in the Staten Island Half Marathon! Lucky number 7 indeed!)

More to come in an official recap, but suffice it to say that this was a race of a lifetime. I had an absolutely amazing time (even when I was hurting!) and wouldn't change anything about this race.

Fittingly, this is also my 100th post here on Have A Good Run -- and the NYC Marathon is a perfect way to celebrate it!

Thanks to all for your supportive tweets, comments, texts and cheers along the course! I appreciate every single one :)


  1. Congrats! I forgot to ask you your bib number yesterday so I could track you, thank goodness for blogs! Recover well!

  2. CONGRATULATIONS! I totally saw you and screamed HAVE A GOOD RUN but you didn't see me. Sad! You looked great on First Ave, and obviously you continued to look and feel great as evidenced by the fantastic PR. Enjoy the post-marathon soreness and happiness. So well deserved!

  3. Thank you Rebecca!

    And thank you Ali!!! I am so glad you saw me, and I'm sad I didn't see you! I didn't see a BUNCH of people (including my roommate!), which I think is due to a marathon-induced blackout (the best kind!). Thanks for your sweet message and for coming out!!!

  4. Woo hoo! Congratulations! You are awesome!

  5. Thanks Jen and Jess! You guys are so sweet -- thanks so much for your encouraging words!!!
