My Running Journey from 21 KM to New York City Marathon Part - 1

My Running Journey from Half Marathon (21 KM) to New York City Full Marathon (42 km)




        Journey started from Jan, 2019 when I completed my first HM. After completing my first HF I got confidence and planned to do another HM which was in Feb 2019 with some better timing. I registered for my 2nd Half Marathon 'Unis Running Inner Strength Half Marathon' on 2/Feb/2019, which was on 17/Feb/2019. Now for this HM I had only 2 weeks for practice.


       

         I had collected my bib no 21154 and t-shirt on 16/Feb/2019 one day before the marathon. On 17/Feb/2019 marathon day, I woke up around 3:30 am in the morning and did my morning routine activity. For this marathon one good thing is that the start and end point of the event are the same, So I planned to take my car and park at the event place and this time my son and wife also wanted to join to cheers-up. We started around 4:00 am from home and reached the starting point around 4:30 am as it was near to my home so it took less time.


        In this event we had HM, 10 km and 5 km run. First started our Half Marathon at sharp 5:00 am in the morning. As it was my second Half Marathon so now, I had some idea how to manage. It was very humid and hot in the morning so I started running slowly. At the starting of the race till 5 km, I was running slowly and completed 5 km in 40 minutes. Then slowly I increased the pace and completed my next 5 km in 30 minutes, then drank some water and continued my run and completed another 8 km in around 50 minutes. Till now I had completed 18 km and everything was good and I was enjoying my run. But after 18 km I was feeling a little tired and now it was tough for me to run fast, so I slowed down my pace and started running slowly and completed my last 3 km in 20 minutes.

        Finally, I completed my 2nd Half Marathon (21 km) in 2:20:22 Hrs which was better than my previous timing. At the end point I met my son and wife who were waiting to finish and they were happy to see me, then collected my marathon medal. After some rest, we moved to the breakfast counter which was arranged by the organizer, had breakfast. After breakfast I took some photos with my 2nd HM medal and came back home. After reaching home I took a rest.






The Main Journey of New York City Marathon 2019 started from here after completing my 2 HM's.
