last night's nfl back to football 4 miler in central park was an inaugural event - with the expectation that it's going to be an annual fixture on the nyrr race calendar. boomer (easiason) and (craig) carton did some pre-race announcing - and pointed out the amani toomer was running the race for charity (he was a handful of feet away from me in my corral)!
as for the race itself, it was fantastic to start in daylight and finish under the lights! but even with the "cooler" temperature after the sun went down, it was still 79 degrees. i came in well under my relatively soft target of 30 minutes. the 29:35 was good enough to crack the top ten in my new 5 year age group :D
here are the race results from nyrr.
