Heading to the More/Fitness Magazine Womens Half Marathon in NYC

My bags are packed.  My family is prepared for 2 days without me.  It will be a whirlwind of a trip.  Due to last minute changes I’m flying in on the Friday redeye and will get in Saturday morning.  I will head to the expo to pick up race packet and of course check out what the expo has to offer.  Hopefully my hotel room will be ready and I will check in followed by pasta dinner at one of my fav NYC restaurants.  Than possibly get some sleep that night and wake up for an 8am start and have a great run in Central Park.  After that I will quickly head back to hotel for a shower and pack and leave for the airport to fly home.  So basically I will be in NYC for 30 hours, but I’m very excited!  My heart always hurts a little though when I leave my family behind, especially since I rarely due it.  We normally always travel together.  It will be fun for my daughter to have daddy time though…especially since she has him wrapped around her tiny little pinky.   I have a feeling there is a visit to a toy store in their near future.

Are you running any fun race this weekend?
