Manhattan Half

Ran the Manhattan half, the first of the five borough grand prix, on Sunday. Fourteen degrees! I ended up pretty comfy actually w/handwarmers to start and a wool layer, despite still not owning any proper running clothes for winter. I got off to a slow start near the back, passed slowly for the whole first lap, running about 10mm. Got lapped by mile six by the winners! Sigh. I did start 6 minutes after the gun, but still ... ah well. Did a much faster second lap and finished in exactly 2:06, a minute better than my only other half, the Brooklyn one last spring. Happy with the time.

Now to get ready for the Bronx on the 5th, not much time to recover!
