it's hard to believe over 25,000 runners finished the brooklyn half marathon this morning - that's 5,000 more than last year! it was my 4th nyrr race of the year toward 9+1 for the 2015 nyc marathon. i didn't have a particular time goal in mind - but did want to finish ahead of 2013's result (1:45).
my 1:43:23 was well under 2013 -- but the real surprise was that it was and entire 1 second faster than my 2014 nyc half finish (1:43:24) - haha. performance wise, event though i haven't gotten in any speed work, i managed to run negative splits!
here's my race report.
here are the race results from nyrr.
here are my photos from the pre-race party/packet pick-up.
