    NYC Half yesterday - 1:21:42

    Wow, that is excellent. And congratulations on qualifying for the full and half. I entered the lottery to run the full NYC marathon last night.

    Jeez. I'm hoping to get there in a month or two: up to now I'd been hovering in the 25-35 miles/week range. Nice going!

    Where can I enter a lottery for the 2012 half-marathon?

    Lottery for it will open in the Fall, nyrr.org for relevant info, but probably nothing is up just yet.

    Did the Atlanta half yesterday - a course that can modestly be characterized as 'challenging' and was reminded that my glory days as a marathoner were 30 years and 30 pounds ago. One thing that I did find especially annoying though - and maybe some of you who have done races with large numbers of participants have observed - was this. When you submit your entry, you're asked about your prospective finish time so that all of the x thousands of runners can generally be assigned to sequential starting corrals by speediness and - since folks are wearing timing chips on their bibs and your chip time doesn't start until you actually cross the start line, a reasonable person would expect that folks would generally be relatively honest. Now I'm no mathematician, but - given the number of groups (3- to 4-persons strong, usually wearing some sort of coordinated 'team' t-shirt) that I had to weave around in the first 3-4 miles of the race trying to get up to my usual pace, I despair the quality of math education in this country. "Umm.. if a person walking quickly can cover about 4 miles in an hour, and if my friends and I will all be walking and talking over the whole 13-mile course, what should I put on my entry form as my likely finish time?..... Gee, maybe an hour and a half?"

    Oh, hell - I hate that. Last couple of races I spent miles weaving around the traffic just to start hitting my pace. That said, the most recent race I ran I started near the front and bombed, badly.

    mylesmyles: great race sir - I am looking to run as close to 1:20 as possible at the OC half marathon next month. That is damn impressive. whats next?

    pitaronin - I started in the second to last wave of the long beach half marathon and ended up not getting passed by a runner the entire way - it was all traffic the whole way. I feel your pain. Still great you got out there and passed a bunch of people.

    I just put in a 10 in the rain. I am dealing with severe guilt issues after skipping my long run yesterday . . . ugh. Still got around 55 miles for the week but it should have easily been an 80 miler if I had planned better, but Oh Well. Live and learn.

    Thanks to all for the kind words, it was my best race since an MCL injury in October/ November, and I'm quite pleased with where I am coming into the spring and summer running season.

    As for what's next: Running TNFEC 50 miler at Bear Mountain in May and TNFEC 50 miler in DC in June. Then will try and find a marathon to BQ in July/ August. Will likely run the Hamptons marthon in September and finish up the year running NYC in November.

    I know I have said it before, but some of you guys are really, really fast.

    Today was my last long run before this weekend's National 1/2 in DC. 13.1 miles in 1:36:40. Hoping to break 1:35 this weekend.

    7 today in 53 minutes, it was nature day, lots of deer, hawks, sand hill cranes....my pace is picking up, the PF is getting better.
    It was in the mid 50's and the trails were very wet from the crazy storms we had.

    Did another 5 yesterday. Now that the weather is getting warmer (so they say), I'll be less at the gym, and adding more miles. I'd like to average 50 per week by this summer again like I did 2 years ago. How do you guys incorporate lifting with running into your schedules?

    On a really bright note, going to start up a running class for local middle schoolers two times a week with my local running shop here in Bay Ridge...very stoked about this.

    Hit my trails today....I have some pretty stunning pics of wild life.
    Anyhow, 7.5 in 55 minutes.
    I bonked hard at about 5, not doubt due to the diet. Prior, I would bonk at mile 13. This was a full on, nothing left moment. Pulled out of it, focused on form and cadence and made it out the other side.
    Im so happy it was 68 degrees out!!!!!


    What type of diet?

    NYR,
    Awesome idea--I've thought about trying to partner with my local library to get something similar going, but as I am still studying to acquire professional expertise and not an accredited education professional yet, I've held back--its kind of a crazy idea anyway [​IMG] Still, best of luck getting that off the ground.
    6 miles early this morning, a Williamsburg bridge concept.
