…and yet I still smashed my previous 4 mile PR at the NYRR NFL Back to Football Run!
My previous best, from back in mid-July, was 29:22 / 7:20 min/mile.
Tonight? 27:25 / 6:54 min/mile!
I shaved nearly two full minutes off my time, and 26 sec/mile off my pace! (According to my Garmin, it was 33 sec/mile, which I like even more.)
When my co-workers asked what pace I was going for, I said 7:30. Turns out I lied.
Note to self: Don’t ever wear the race shirt during the race again. This was my first, and hopefully last encounter (at least for a long while) with nipple chafing. Oh wow, that was painful.
