According to McMillan's Running Calculator, my shorter race distance times should reflect what is shown in the chart above to sync with my current marathon time. I need to be one minute faster in my 5k, two minutes faster in my 10k, and four minutes in my half. I guess this proves my endurance versus speed theory (My theory: I am slow). To qualify for New York City with a 3:25 marathon, my shorter distance times need to be lightning speed, apparently. I have my work cut out for me in the next year. Good thing I took the day off today to think about all the training that I could be doing instead of typing and eating chocolate chip cookies. In my defense, I didn't really enjoy the cookies. I had to buy the Pepperidge Farm Soft Baked Montauks because the local commissary doesn't sell my usual yummy Nature's Promise cookies. I will accept your pity if it's genuine.
