What a great night (late afternoon) to run a mile! The Peekskill Brewery Mile went off just after 5 PM and the best part of it (aside from the net downhill) was getting to run it with Katie. We haven't run an official race together in years - since she was in middle school. Instead of road races, she spent her middle and high school years playing field hockey and lacrosse :D
And what better way to finish a mile (or any race/run for that matter) than to rehydrate with some excellent beer! In fact, I'd venture to say it was the prospect of a cold beer that got me to the finish in 6:44 - haha. I was a little dubious of running fast after the Westport Summer Series 8.4 Miler yesterday, the post-run miles after that race, and the trail miles I ran this morning. But where there is cold beer, there is always a way :D
Here are the official results from the Taconic Road Runners.

Thanks Bette for the great photos of me in action (during the race and post-race with Hiroshi)!
