Today, TCS New York City Marathon will grant race entry to 16,211 runners through the lottery drawing. That is only 17% of all applicants. Put another way, that’s the same acceptance rate as getting into tough school like Williams College and even harder than getting into Georgetown University (18% acceptance rate) and Johns Hopkins University (18% acceptance rate).

Were you one of the lucky ones?

I feel very lucky to call Central Park my running home. Running around the Great Lawn in the early morning is so serene, if not for the view of skyscrapers, you can almost forget you’re in New York. Over the past 5 years, I’ve learned quite a few things about running in the CP and the park’s history, so I wanted to share them. Where’s your favorite place to run?

Happy Monday! Did you have a long weekend? Did you do anything fun? I spent the weekend in Great Barrington, Massachusetts (I had a hair and make up trial for my wedding!!!). Here’s how I spent the last week in workouts.

Monday: Nothing
Tuesday: Lyon’s Den Power Yoga hour-long class with Matt (Hey, it was Valentine’s Day!) They played power ballads and it was taught by John Murray who was an awesome instructor. Sign me up for more.
