The NYRR Run As One race was today!
The course was exactly the same as the 4 mile Run for the Parks course, and after greatly exceeding my expectations last week by running with a 7:43 min/mi. pace, I was worried I had set myself up for disappointment this time around.
Boy was I wrong.
I beat my previous time by nearly 1:30 and improved my pace a full 20 seconds!
Plus I placed 250+ positions better (1,223 today vs. 1,587), even though the field increased by over 1,000 runners!
All in all, it was another fantastic race in Central Park.
