it was chilly for the scotland run this morning - the wool caps handed out at packet pick-up came in handy! a lot of the runners wore them. but, on the positive side, it was sunny and a great day to be outside. there was a pretty big field - over 7,700 finishers!
time wise, all i wanted was to run a solid 8 minute pace and finish under 50 minutes. i was pleasantly surprised with my 48:48, 7:53 pace (but well off last year's 46:34, 7:30 pace). i was even happier with the run itself because i managed cut down the pace of each successive mile: from just over 8 minutes for the first to just under 7:30 for the last one!
this was my 4th nyrr race of 2013. tomorrow, hopefully, i'll line up for the vctc urban environmental challenge 10k in van cortlandt park :D
here are the race results from nyrr/
