ING NEW YORK MARATHON
Why I'm Running the ING New York City Marathon
I didn't want to run a marathon again. I had already run the New York City Marathon three times, and I felt like I had gotten what I needed from it. I'd had an amazing experience each year I'd run, and my times had gotten better with each race. I was happy with that.
