manhattan half marathon: race photos and results

what a cold morning to line up for a race! and 4,500 other runners decided to do the same thing. the manhattan half reached it's cap of 5,000 last week, and 90% of the registered field crossed the finish - awesome.

don, emmy and i drove in together. here is the short version: finished up in 1:37:43, 7:27 pace. a small improvement from my result last year, but well off my pr for this course. emmy took second in her age group with a 1:32:20 - awesome! don came in just under 2 hours with 1:59:22.

here is my race report (with links to a couple more).

here are the official results at nyrr.

here are some race photos:

Great pix!! Actually I think NYRR said they planned to overbook (I read the number 6,500 bandied about) because there are always registrants who don't show up, but to have 90% of the expected number finish the race under those conditions was still an achievement for all of you.

(A time conflict, not the weather, made me one of the no-shows. I ran locally but couldn't spare the travel time today.)

Great job Frank. To keep up that speed in cold temps like today was awesome. I was happy just to cross the finish still on my feet.

See you in the Bronx in 2 weeks?

Great Pictures Frankie. Always a blast with you and Emmy in the car. Glad you helped her keep it on the road. Another successful road trip. Lightfootman

Frank - good to "see" you guys again, even though it is through pictures. Now I am jealous for not running it. Congrats on a great time and Special congrats to Emmy on a PR and second place. You guys are fast. Thanks for the pics.
