i don't know what possessed me to imagine we'd have a nice sunny spring day to run 4 miles in the park this morning?! instead, some bit of lunacy overtook me and i took the metronorth in to run 4 rain soaked miles in the park - all for another point on the road to nine (plus one)! despite the soggy conditions, i ran 29 minutes even, a 7:15 pace.
i wasn't the only looney one out there - well over 5,000 runners crossed the finish line today (5,144 to be exact). after i dropped my bag off, i ran into my fellow trrc teammates, bob and tom. but aside from that quick hello, because of the rain there wasn't much socializing, before or after the race.
here are the race results from nyrr.
