Last year’s Ted Corbitt 15K was not my first NYRR race, but it was my first NYRR race in 18 years. I still have trouble believing that, but it’s true. The last NYRR race I had done was a 5K on Halloween 1999 called “Not Quite the NYC Marathon.” I finished in 27:21. Not bad, but a few minutes slower than what I’d be capable of in my 40s. But of course I didn’t know that yet.
The results are officially in from the Ted Corbitt 15K I ran only three days ago. (How does it seem like two weeks ago? Why does time do that?)
While my Garmin has my race pace as 8:35 min/mile, the official results say 8:45 min/mile. So that’s what I’ll go with. FINE.
This morning’s Ted Corbitt 15K in Central Park could not have gone any better. With the exception of a couple very minor hiccups in my METICULOUSLY PLANNED PLANS, everything went well.
Heads up: this will be a long post and I took a LOT of pictures. Settle in. Grab a snack. Hell, grab dinner. We’re gonna be here a while.
Today was an eeeeasy day. Look at this pace. A year ago this pace would have made me proud and amazed. Now it just looks slow. (For me. You, dear runner, have your own fast and slow pace, as you should.)
Hello! This is just a midday post to share my excitement of having picked up my bib for this weekend’s Ted Corbitt 15K in Central Park! Something like this – basically an errand – is normally not worthy of an entire post, but I got a couple pictures out of it and I wanted to write about it and it’s my blog and I can do what I want!
