at the start of the scotland run this morning, they announced a record field of more than 11,000 runners! i barely made it there in time to join the fun. i ran from the 77th street station to baggage, then down to my corral, with about 2 minutes left to spare. it took over a minute and a half to cross the mat once it got underway.
but even with the slow start (an 8+ minute first mile), eventually the road thinned out a bit and i managed to finish in 46:34, a 7:30 pace. while i didn't have a time goal in mind, i was more than pleased with the result. even with mile one, this was my fastest 10k in a while :D
here are the race results from nyrr.
