I Am A Victim Of My Circumstances (or) How I Survived My First Half Marathon

This blog will be long, self-serving and all about running in New York City.  If you have issues with any of those, just move along to the next post….  Oh, you’re still reading?  Well, ok then, continue at your own risk. On March 15th, I was able to say that the longest run I had ever taken in my life was seven miles.  March 16th, surrounded by friends (both old and new), I participated in the 2014 NYC Half Marathon.  I never []
