underwhelming

I think I can use that word to describe all of NYRR’s races these days.

Ran the Marathon Kickoff 5-miler yesterday. Honestly-was quite uneventful and underwhelming. 42:16, 8:27 pace, splits 8:23/8:13/8:41/8:24/8:35 Just wasn’t feeling it after mile 1, and pretty much ran the whole thing as a tempo effort.

I wish I could get excited about races again, but it’s been hard these days…
