Times Square is shutdown twice a year…for New Years Eve and the NYC Half Marathon!

Times Square is shutdown twice a year…for New Years Eve and the NYC Half Marathon!

This winter I have been gearing up for my first race of the season, the NYC Half Marathon on March 17th, 2019 (St. Patrick’s Day!).  I did my best to recover after Ironman Kona and take some time off to avoid burnout and injuries but I always dread trying to get back into the swing of training! I feel like the rust is finally coming off.

No one starts doing triathlons because they want to compete in the Ironman World Championships in Kona, Hawaii. I started racing triathlons more than a decade ago and was in it for the fun, exercise, meeting new friends, etc. It wasn’t until about 5 years ago when I learned what Kona was all about…that it wasn’t just for the Pros.
