As usual the race was a FANTASTIC race. If you read this space you've heard (or read) me talk about how much I love this race and course, it's a virtual tour of my running haunts, Central Park, West Side, Downtown and um, Times Square (which is actually where I work so there's a connection there).
You've heard me say it before, they close the Cross Roads of the World two times per year, for New Year's Eve and for the NYC Half.
The weather in March in NYC can be unpredictable and this year didn't disappoint. After a super mild winter and warm week leading up the race, temps dropped to the teens with snow predicted for race day. And not just snow, but a blizzard! Long story short, the snow missed NYC and while it was cold at the start and the finish, it was a great day to run in NYC.
My run was not PR-worthy but I was able to run my best 13.1 time in a year and I'm fixing to do some damage at the Brooklyn Half this year.
