For Three-Time Winner Huddle, NYC Half Is Now Part Of Road Back To Fitness
The United Airlines NYC Half came into Molly Huddle's life in 2014 and it was one of the key turning points in the now 38 year-old's storied career. Never a fan of cross country or indoor track, the 28-time national champion liked to de-camp from her Providence, R.I., home in the winter to put in her pre-season base miles in the warmth of Arizona. The NYC Half, with its mid-March date, was the perfect race to close-out her winter training block. Her long-time coach Ray Treacy, whom Huddle affectionately calls "The Guru," gave his blessing and she signed-up for the 2014 race. It would be her first-ever half-marathon.
