Last year I applied for the Berlin Marathon but was rejected. This year, registration begins on October 19. I will try again! The 2016 race is schedule for September 25, 2016. I will find out in December if I get in. If I do, I will run the London Marathon in April and the Berlin Marathon in September. If I am rejected again from Berlin, I will try my luck in Chicago!
With 16 days to go before the New York Marathon, I feel good. Tomorrow morning I will run 14 taper miles. When one trains for a marathon, 14 miles doesn’t seem long. I’m sure I will feel it in the final couple of miles but I expect to enjoy the overcast conditions forecast for tomorrow. With a bit of luck, it will rain!
Today was rest day!
