NYCRuns Winter Series Riverside Park 5K (2.7.15)

Course: Starts and ends somewhere near 108th in Riverside Park. It’s an out and back course, meaning you get to see the really fast people running towards you like beautiful gazelles, as you sniff and try to contain your snot while silently cursing

Weather: 24F at 9 a.m.

Pace: 8:36/mile

  • I’ve run this many times, and it’s deceptively hard — lots of rolling hills
  • There were ice patches and the trail is narrow to begin with, so there were some traffic jams; people kept it civil, which is appreciated
  • As soon as I was done, I high-tailed it to Absolute Bagels
