2011 Race Schedule
Manhattan Half Marathon (January 22nd, 2011): “Runners are drawn to the challenging hills of Manhattan’s Central Park for the first half-marathon of 2011. This race of the series makes for a bracing start to the new year.” cited from website. Report.
Brooklyn Half Marathon (May 21st, 2011): One of my favorite Half Marathons. 2 loops Prospect Park and onto Coney Island via Ocean Parkway. This year’s registration sold out pretty quickly. A few days. Report
Flat As A Pancake (June 5th, 2011): (Triathlon) This was my first open water swim triathlon. I did this race last year and loved it. Joe, the race organizer does an awesome job. The course is fast minus the swim which was a bit choppy last year. Did I mention the post-race pancakes? Highly recommended sprint race to kick start the tri season. Report
Stars & Strips Aquathlon (July 9th, 2011): “This fun and challenging multi-sport event combines a 1.5-km swim in the Hudson River and a flat, fast, scenic 5-km run in Hudson River Park and Riverside Park.” cited from website. Report
IRONMAN Lake Placid (July 24th, 2011): (Triathlon) “Centered amidst the northern beauty of the Adirondack region, Lake Placid is a solid choice as host for the Ironman Lake Placid Triathlon. The Lake Placid course presents challenging sections on both the bike and run courses that gave last year’s nearly 2,000 competitors a workout to remember. Famous champions include Thomas Hellriegel, Heather Fuhr, Melissa Spooner, Steve Larsen, and Cameron Widoff. The course is nothing short of spectacular. The swim takes place in the pristine Mirror Lake.
The challenging bike course winds through the Adirondack Mountains, and is both scenic and tough – what more could a triathlete want?
The run is no picnic, either, and offers up some more great scenery, along with some more challenging hills.
Put it all together and you have the essence of Ironman … a race that captures both the beauty and the challenges of the area, and the sport.” cited from website. Report
Queens Half Marathon (July 30th, 2011): This will be one week after my Ironman. I haven’t got any clue as to how long of a recovery I will need, but this will just be a fun race. I registered because I need to complete four NYRR half marathons in order to be guaranteed registration for the 2012 NYC half. Report.
Bronx Half Marathon (August 28th, 2011): awarded race credit due to Hurricane Irene cancellation.
2010 Race Schedule
2009 was my inaugural year in racing. Completed my first triathlon (NYRR Sprint) in August, qualified for guaranteed entry into the 2010 NYC Marathon, by completing 9 races. The 9 races included NYC Half Marathon and the Brooklyn Half. Concluded the year with a sub 4 Marathon in Philadelphia (finish time: 3:54:00).
This is my tentative race schedule for 2010. With good health and proper training I am hoping to complete at least 3 triathlons and 2 marathons in 2010.
NYRR Fred Lebow Classic 5M (January 9th, 2010): First and one of the most honorable races of 2010. Looking forward to running this race in honor of Fred Lebow. Co-Founder of the New York Road Runners and founder of the New York City Marathon. Fred Lebow is a true legend to the sport of running. Report
NYRR Run for Haiti (February 20th, 2010): This run was organized by New York Road Runners and the NYC Parks and Recreation. The funds raised will help the people of Haiti.

The race will be a 4 mile run/walk event and also a double qualifying race credit towards the 2011 NYC marathon. Report.
NYRR Al Gordon Snowflake (February 28th, 2010) : This will mark the second time that we’ll be running the Al Gordon Snowflake. In 2009 it was a 5K race, but has been upgraded to a 4M in 2010. We’ll be running in honor of Al Gordon, who passed away in summer 2009. He was 107. Report.
