“It’s Official. I’m Hooked On Marathons”

Kerry McEnerney ran the NYC course like a pro in her first marathon. [Official result]

THANK YOU for coaching me to my first marathon finish! When I first saw that the training plan projected my time for my first ever NYC Marathon to be 3:34, I thought y’all were crazy. But it happened, and then some!! I was out in 1:46:16 and back in 1:46:55 for a 3:33:11 finish. I’ve never felt more in control during a race, and even through the challenges (like falling at mile 12 or feeling new quad pain from mile 15 onward), I knew I was strong and I never counted myself out. It was so freeing to trust in the training and feel confident that the hard work would show on race day. This high school 400m hurdler never thought she could be a disciplined, motivated marathoner. Can’t wait to train for next year’s Chicago Marathon with you! It’s official. I’m hooked on marathons. Uh oh.
