I am determined to end this year better than it started. I am also determined to start the year off exactly how I want to. Not at some overcrowded party drinking weak drinks, not sitting inside my apartment just waiting for the countdown, this year I wanted to do something that would truly make me happy, something I always thought would be fun doing.

So this year I'm spending New Years Eve with New York Road Runners. As my final 9 + 1 race requirement to qualify for the 2018 New York City Marathon, I am running the Midnight Run in Central Park. It's a 4 mile loop at the stroke of midnight and I couldn't be more thrilled to participate. 

I'm well aware the last thing most people want to do at midnight on NYE is go for a run. A run through a dark Central Park, in the freezing cold, but I'm not most people. I'm pumped to ring in the new year exactly how I plan to spend the rest of it, happy.
