It was a soggy morning out there for the France Run 8K. Midway through the national anthem it began to drizzle - and rain it did for almost the entire race! For most of the miles it wasn't much more than a drizzle (and felt pretty good, actually) - but there a couple of minutes of heavy rain laced in there. Regardless, 2016 NYRR # 6 is in the books :D
At 37:43, the 7:36 pace for the 8K was almost an entire minute faster than my shuffle at the 5 Mile Team Championships last month (42:08, 8:36 pace). But at that 5 Miler I took it more as an easy jog because the Escarpment Trail Run was the next morning ;O
Next up, NYRR race #7 will be the Fifth Avenue Mile in two weeks. As always, if you're at that one - say hello!
Here are the official results from NYRR.
