nyack hospital 10k: photos and results

just got back from the nyack hospital 10k. with the tempature 20 degrees below normal and winds at 15+ miles per hour, i almost slept in and skipped the racde. but i got my running tights out of the closet (first time this year), drove over the tappan zee bridge, and found myself lined up for the race. my 43:16 finish was just sliver under a 7 minute pace (with each mile increasingly slower than the last one).

i couldn't stick around for the awards ceremony afterwards, but did get to say a quick hello to my friends bob and frank before the drive home.

here is my race report.

here are the official results.

pre-race: everyone staying warm inside.

pre-race: still inside!

pre-race: no one wanted to wait for the start outside!

post-race: bob and me.


the final turn to the finish line.

the finish line.

post-race: me and frank.

A little cold out there today, no ?

Nice job. Last year's Nyack was also quite cold. Bet Tony would have welcomed some of that cold last weekend in the middle of the day!

IT looked cold!!!! I loved your photo showing that no one wanted to go outside!! How much fun to see the other Frank C. (did he beat you or did you beat him?) and Bob...

Like Just_because_today, I too noticed that there are TWO Frank Collella's in the results. Does Frank have a doppleganger?

Frank beat Frank. Maybe not a doppleganger but possibly a vard√łger.

I'd like to give a shout out to Janet Meyer for running a great 10k Saturday -- she hasn't run in over a year, but still managed to go under a 10 minute pace. Go Janet. See you at Vanny on Sunday for the Pete McArdle 15 K.
