Wow, today's Front Runner's Pride Run could easily have been renamed a swim! It rained (sometimes poured) on and off until minutes into the race! I was wet from the minute I walked out of my house, drove to MetroNorth station, walked (1 block) from MetroNorth to subway, and continued to be soaked from the 102nd street station to the start! I went straight to the corral (not checking a bag) and ran the race with my mini knapsack, squeaking all the way :D
At 40:29, it was one of my slowest non-trail 5 milers (2+ minutes slower than the "dry" Retro 5 Miler that kicked off June)! But getting it done under those wet conditions was fun, if a bit exasperating - and I was more than happy with my time. It was NYRR race #5 of 2017.
Here are the official race results from NYRR.
