Nilesh (India), Min (Japan), Sharmila (India), Sachin (New Jersey) and Doreen (Germany) also had completed Full Marathon early and also during WhatsApp discussion we came to know that Sachin and Sharmila already done New York City Marathon early and this will be 2nd time for them.

Also started Discussing about visa and how to process further, training plan for New York City Marathon, Hotel stay accommodation, flight tickets and started dreaming about New York City Marathon.

During the start of my NYRR training I completed my 3rd HM (GAVS DHRM 2019) which was held on 21/July/2019 for which I registered in June/2019 before my New York City Marathon selection news. I completed my 3rd HM in 02:27:01 Hrs which was not good timing for me as I completed my 2nd HM in 2:20:22 Hrs. I had planned to complete my 3rd HM within 2:15 Hrs, but it was my bad not able to do that. It was going good till 15 km and I completed 15 km in 1:40 hrs. But after 15 km I was tired, feeling like vomiting, so I slowed down my pace and it took 47 minutes for me to complete the last 6 km of my HM. 

Finally, I was able to complete my 3rd HM in 02:27:01 Hrs. It was very hot and humid in the morning on that day. After completing my run, I was not feeling well and vomited due to dehydration. Then my running group friend Rahul who went with me in the morning, drove my car and dropped home to me and my family. After reaching home I took a rest.
From Next week I started practice for my New York City Marathon 2019.  

Coming Soon...
