hot and cold, less and more

another mishmash post!! sorry, just full of em these days πŸ™‚

  • UCLA kinda sorta broke my heart yesterday. And Kansas did give me a tiny but of a scare, but prevailed. If Kansas wins tomorrow nite, then I get 2nd place (and some $$$-actual amount TBD) in my office pool. I will be watching nervously while sipping on a pint of beer.
  • Did my longest run in awhile yesterday, 10.1 miles (full 6, 2.5 mi bridle path, and 1 reservoir loop) and felt just fine-Philly I’m ready for ya (will sneak in one more beforehand though.) Was so nice out yesterday-shorts and short sleeve weather. Which of course crowded the park drives, bridle path-and especially the reservoir. No wonder each half-handing out water to a thirsty half-marathon runnermile of the rez (which was the end of my run) got progressively faster-the last half-mile was at an 8:15 pace!-because I just wanted to get the heck away from the crowds so bad!! (I don’t intend to make a habit of doing that though.)
  • The weather was the flip side today-chilly!! Good for those running the More marathon and half-yet a wee bit nippy for those volunteering, including yours truly. But did the water station thing for a coupla hours-this year got there early enough to see both the full and the half marathon runners!! And got in my volunteer requirement for next year’s NYCM guaranteed entry, yeah!! (now I just need to get in 7 more races this year…)
  • And headed off to Yankee stadium after my volunteering stint (well, after I got some Starbucks to warm my hands up!) to watch my guys kick the crap out of the Devil Rays-I knew they would since I was there :-p Was a fun game, though a bit chilly. And oh man-the crowds were ridiculous when leaving!! Here’s hoping the new stadium will have more room to move…
  • But I stopped by the Yankee clubhouse store yesterday because I didn’t want to wear my ARod shirt. While I was there-I was so glad to see that my team will never lose its sense of humor…

No mets discount

  1. You shoulda done the West Side Highway with me. Totally deserted. Was awesome.

  2. I’m almost positive I saw you on the rez on Sat–like the lower part right by engineers gate–were you with someone at that point? I was on the main loop. Nice run πŸ˜‰

  3. Nice run! Good to bump into you last week.

  4. peter-if only my calves liked that surface a little more and I didn’t have to limit my west side path time!!runner26-i was solo for the whole run…probably would have been on the rez around 3ish? so that might not have been me…i was wearing my NYC half shirt, if that helps :)josh-same here!! i’m actually surprised it didn’t happen sooner πŸ™‚
