To recap, I got in through the 9+1 program for guaranteed entry. My NYRR races last year were (in no particular order other than long to short)...:
Wall Street 3m
Fifth Avenue Mile (I don't think this was a qualifier)
I'll probably do a few of these races again this year, just because they're close and because I can. (I'm already registered for the Brooklyn Half, for instance.) But seeing these races come up on the NYRR calendar and not entering is one of the simple pleasures of life.
