Hey what's up guys. It's about time I updated this. My name is Elias, 44 from NYC. Born and raised in Brooklyn, living in Staten Island. I have two sons, 18 and 15, two great dogs, and a wonderful supportive girlfriend. I started running March 2012. A lifelong urban athlete, I could no longer play basketball, or baseball. I ran my first 5k race and I was immediately hooked and I had something to keep my competitive juices flowing. I've been steady running ever since. I like to run, crossfit and do yoga.
I will run my first NYC Marathon. I will also run a spring marathon (Buffalo). I will be doing the Hanson Marathon Method. My first marathon was a disaster. I learned a lot of lessons that day and I plan on putting them to use during these two marathons. This year my goal is to Boston Qualify.This means I would have to do the Buffalo Marathon in 3:15 to BQ for 2015. For NYC since I will be 45, i would need a 3:25 to BQ for 2016. All I can do is try.
I enjoy following real bloggers, who talk about their challenges, achievements and failures. I'm here to support and bring the positive vibes.
PM is definitely a finalist.
I did research it and I agree that it is a very pretty and scenic marathon. The crossing of those bridges is very tempting..and the timing would be just right.
