yesterday i picked up my bib and tee shirt for the autism speaks 4 miler at the nyrr club. the big surprise - in the confirmatory email - was the extra 15 minutes the men get on saturday morning! instead of the 8 am start, the nyrr pushed back the start to 8:15 to accommodate a bike race in the park that morning. the women's start is still 9 am.
the 4 miler will be my 8th nyrr race on the road to 9+1 for the 2014 nyc marathon. i registered for it earlier this week, together with the bronx 10 miler at the end of the month (which will complete my 9+1 for 2014!).
along with the tee shirts, clear plastic bags were handed out for baggage check. it seems that the days of bringing stuff in your own bag - any bag - have been replaced by this new baggage check system. given that, make sure to pack light!
as always, if you're running this one - say hello :D
