this morning was a first for me - a race over the brooklyn bridge! i've run (and walked) across the bridge countless times (from the nyc side when i lived at pace and from the bklyn side when we lived in brooklyn heights). i heard of the sgt. keith a. ferguson memorial 5k last summer, but couldn't run it because of a conflict with the trrc biathlon.
this time around i didn't want to miss it. the race was really a fun run for me and the 21:38, 6:58 pace, was good enough for 5th place in my age group. emmy won her age group! i saw my good buddy sal on his outbound leg on the bridge (and when he was finishing) - but didn't see him before or after the race. i saw dorothy as she finished, and after the race.
here are the race results; and here are a few race photos:
