the nyrr were taking care of two races at once at their offices. downstairs were tee-shirts and bibs for the achilles hope and possibility 5 miler on sunday and, upstairs, was the front runners pride run packet pick-up. in a twist, no tee shirts for the pride run - hats instead. not just hats, but hats that were distributed in a drawstring tote bag :D
the pride run sold out late last week, but there wasn't too much of a crowd. there was probably an equal split in runners picking up for both races. the course change for the pride run (now to use the north end of the park) means we'll run the hillier 5 mile loop - via the harlem hills.
this will be race #6 on the road to 9 for the 2012 nyc marathon. as always, if you're at this one, say hello!
