On Sunday, March 19, 2017, I took a bite out of the Big Apple. Exactly 365 days ago, I broke my half marathon PR when I ran through the New York Streets on March 20, 2016, finishing with a then PR of 1:38:44. After Sunday though, the new PR stands at 1:37:43.
So how did I get that PR? Four things contributed to it: November Project NYC, NYRR Group Training, mental toughness, and, Cheer Squads! Especially the last one.
