SI Half Preview

The views of the Verrazano were really something

I haven't had the time yet to sit down and write up a race report for the Staten Island half, but here is a preview of the splits from the 1.25mi warmup and the 13.1 that followed. It was a nice, steady marathon pace run with a strong finish despite more knee pain than I'd like to admit. Things feel okay now, but I'm working my ass off to keep the knee from getting any worse. PT again tomorrow... now I remember why people call it Pain&Torture. Surely I'm not that cruel to my patients (ok, I hope not- they're 2-5 years old).

  1. I didn't realize the course ran down Bay St. I used to live in Stapleton, when I had no money, circa 1989. Someone got stabbed outside the bar on the corner, just across the street from the Arby's. If I recall, I was usually running when I was outside in that area then too, although I wouldn't start "running" for another 10 years or so.

    Nice race. I like how you picked the pace up up along the way. This bodes well for NYCM.
