I'm a runner from the USA, but living in Shanghai. I run for fun and for health and to see how fast I can be.
Beautiful day for running and not too many serious runners showed up. Top 4 of us went out at 5:20 pace and one of them stepped off the course at 2m. Up the hill the eventual winner pulled away. I got in a groove after that and passed #2 and hauled it in. Good support along the way from Ali, Jon, Ben, Rio and Noah. Felt really good out there, comfortable at the 530 pace. Not a PR but best I've ever felt in Prospect Park. Finished strong! Happy Thanksgiving!

On the positive side, I improved 2+ minutes over last year and was 166th place. I executed my race plan. I had great support in all the perfect spots from Jim B. Hedda B. Ben S. Yukiko B. Rio, Mom, Jon, Ali, Mike, Elisa, Grayson and Steven (M). On the not so positive side, I wasn't ready for 26 miles of racing. After 30k, I could feel it slipping and after 35k, I was cramping and hanging on for dear life. In summary, I had a wonderful day in the spotlight and I'm looking forward to resting a bit and then giving 239 another shot in April in Boston. ...もっと見る

Very cool race but not happy with my result. First km 3:13, but all about 3:20 after that. The event was amazing though. After running race was men's and women's track bicycle (fixed gear no brakes) race 'criterium'. So fast, really fun to watch.
Best estimate of km splits

Really tough race. Ben S. gamely setting the pace and then a Canadian guy pulled even with a km to go and pushed it home. I thought I was dropping him a couple times, but he had a kick over the last 200m and I did not. Pleased with the time considering how flat I felt before and during. Definitely need a lot of rest this coming week leading up to Red Hook 5k. I'll try to go sub-16. ...もっと見る

10x400m on 200m jogging rest (80,79,78,74,74,74,74,74,73,70). Felt good, but felt like a pro with Steve B. pacing me for the first 200 and Ben S. to chase for the second 200. Perfect weather, cool and still and even a little sun shine. What winter?
