i got to the nyrr building early yesterday, just after 12:30, and the place was packed - with volunteers waiting to get set up and runners to pick up for the queens 10k - and the run to breathe 10k. if the space wasn't cramped enough, there was a table set up right next to the front door for "boomer's team" runners! oh well, thankfully there was air-conditioning :D
the queens 10k will be race number 6 on my 2013 road to 9+1. it will also be race number 3 on the road to running all 5 of borough grand prix races. haven't done that since 2005! i have a shot at it this year, if i can work the staten island half into my schedule for october. but i should get in at least 4 of the 5.
they handed out clear bags along w/the tech shirt (separate sizing for men and women) - so the baggage drill will probably be similar to what they had for the brooklyn half. regardless of logistics, hopefully the heat wave will break before sunday!
if you're at this one - say hello :D
