About a months ago, I posted about my experience running my first NYC Half Marathon. To sum it up, the most I’d ever run prior to that day was 4 miles (and I can count on three fingers how many times that was). Yet somehow despite all of this I managed to run the 13.1 miles in 2 hours and 11 minutes. The strange part being I did it without stopping and quite easily. Or rather the crazy part considering I’m not a runner.
