great weather for 3 loops of central park this morning. the marathon tune-up 18 miler had almost 5,000 finishers - that's a lot of runners going long! my 2:23:03, came in just under my targeted 8 minute pace (7:57). i was pleased (despite the drop off from my sub 2:20 finish last year) because i had only decided to enter the tune-up on friday. emmy took first place in her age group! anthony, wayne, herb, and eric all ran varying distances before the start!
here is my race report; and here are the race results from nyrr.
