i went to the nyrr club this afternoon and picked up my bib, d-tag, and shirt for the queens half marathon on saturday. the red shirt was the same style as the brooklyn and manhattan half marathons, but it was cotton like the manhattan long-sleeve instead of a tech shirt like brooklyn (and it was a heavy weight cotton at that). i miss the days when nyrr gave out cotton singlets at summer races!
on the heels of 70 miles in vermont last weekend, this race will be a recovery run. if it wasn't the third of five in the grand prix series, i would probably have skipped it in favor of the norwalk summer series (9 miles) or westport (4.1 miles). but i'm actually looking forward to checking out the new course! running around the unisphere seems nicer (and faster) than the old course. weather conditions aside, looks like a great course for a pr!
as always, if you're there, say hi!
