stopped by the nyrr club after work yesterday to pick up bib, d-tag, and shirt for the nyrr 8000 tomorrow. given the weather forecast, it should be reclassified as an 8k swim around the park. heavy rain is expected to arrive late this afternoon and continue straight through the weekend - the bulk of the rain storm to hit us tomorrow :(
as for the race, given the weather forecast, it's going to be a slog. last year i ran this 8k in 33:36, a 6:46 pace. this time around it's just a training run (and race number 4 on the road to 9, for the 2011 nyc marathon). i'll be happy to finish it in under 40 minutes.
the race shirt once again echoes a retro flavor - just like the manhattan half logo from january's race. katie wants me to switch (or trade) mine for an adult small, so she can wear it! i'll give that a waterlogged try at the race tomorrow.
as always, if you're at this one - say hi!
