New York City Marathon Training Update

My 1st half marathon of the year. 3rd in AG
Start spreading the news, I'm not exactly leaving today, I want to be a part of it, New York, New York! Okay, so this is slightly old news that I finally made my declaration that I was running in the New York City Marathon on November 1st. Saying it and doing it are two entirely different things. The last two weeks have been as volatile as the New York Stock Exchange; yet provided some confidence for the big race.

With that, a summary by the numbers of my New York Marathon training including a detour in Rock Springs, Wyoming.

BY THE NUMBERS

1330: Total training miles year-to-date.
15: Longest long run yet this training period...until last night.
2nd: Overall placement in my Rock Springs, Wyoming triathlon two weekends ago. My highest placement in a race at Race the Rock.

3rd: Place in Masters Division in Half Marathon last weekend.
2400: Physical Therapy minutes (estimated) over last four months on my torn hip labrum.
20: Number of physical therapy, chiropractor, dry needling appointments over the last four months.
16,106: Miles I will fly in the next week around the world for work while trying to maintain my New York City Marathon training.
Three: Dry needle injections yesterday to alleviate some "tension" in my hip from racing on Monday.
16.5:  Simulated marathon pace long run distance last night squeezing it in before I spend 18 hours on a flight.
6, 3 x 3, 1: Warm-up, intervals with two min recovery float, and cooldown miles on long run.
8:00, 7:50, 7:40-7:35: Interval paces for three 3-mile sets.
Zero: Number of BQ's I had in 2015. Yes, there will be no Boston Marathon in 2016 for Seeking Boston Marathon, but I will be seeking Boston in New York.

Off the grid for a couple days...is there internet in Moscow?
