in all my years as a nyrr, this was my first time running the achilles 5 miler! and, had i know it wasn't a marathon qualifier it's unlikely i would have registered for it since i generally only run those that add a point to the 9+1 requirement. but it was a honor to run this race - and join the achilles runners on the course. point or not, it's a race i'll continue to run in the years ahead.
as for my performance, it wasn't one of my faster 5 mile races. at 39:26, 7:54 pace, it's actually one of my slowest 5 mile road race finishes. still, i enjoyed myself and, given the high mileage week, i was more than happy with to get it done.
next up is the putnam county classic on the 4th of july - and maybe a trip to van cortandt park the night before for the relay :D
here are the race results from nyrr.
the rest of my photos are up on facebook.
