NYRR Japan Run (05.08.16)

Course: 4 mile counterclockwise loop around central park

Weather: 51F degrees, rain

Pace: 9:02/mile

  • Oh, miserable rain… waiting for the race to start was pure torture. Once it started, it wasn’t so bad
  • This is the first time I experienced staggered starts at an NYRR race that wasn’t a half — instead of one horn, they blew the horn a couple of times. We went when the third horn went off… not sure if it made a difference
  • The Japan Festival is also at the same time; rather than hanging out afterward, we ran home and took long hot showers (but not before grabbing some free Ito-en tea first!)
