if if wasn't that i had fallen behind on my goal of nine + one for the 2013 nyc marathon, i would have gone to norwalk and done the summer series 7 miler instead of heading down to central park for the 4 miler. with the run for central park now in the books i have 4 races toward the nine (well off the pace - so to speak - of prior years). since it was a team race, it was great to see so many taconic road runners afterwards!
as for the race itself, i had very conservative 7:30 pace in mind when i started. as it turned out i ran a 29:06, 7:17 pace - a bit faster than i had in mind. my overriding priority was to avoid setting back my recovery from a nagging ankle problem. afterwards, race done and point in hand, i wasn't any worse for the wear - so i'll count that as success :D
here are the race results from nyrr.
