'14 NY Giants 5K - 18:15/5:54


Net Time - 18:15
Pace - 5:54
AG - 71.85%
Rank - 48

First time setting foot at the MetLife Stadium.  The course was similar to the defunct Shea 5K Chase to the home plate.  I found it hard to justify a $50 for a 5K but to experience something new will gain precedence. Overall the course was flat with the exception of the ramp leading towards the stadium.  With all the logistics, I probably won't be competing this race next year.  Although I did get a feel of dirty jersey from my run from Secaucus to Hoboken!  Still haven't broke the 18 min barrier yet, will try again-

2014 NYCRuns Shore Road Park 5K- 18:20/5:55 & Boomer's Run to Breathe- 23:46/5:57

Two races in a weekend and went better than expected:

Boomer's Run to Breathe
Net Time - 23:46
Pace - 5:57
AG - 72.07%
Rank - 29/5522

One of the few races after getting back into the swing of things from sickness.  I had some respiratory issues for the past few weeks and felt a bit of a dry heave and was breathing laboriously around mile 3.  Luckily after the westside hills, my constant coughing subsided and I was ready to hit another sub 24.

Rank - 1st Overall

Definitely was happy to defend this title and racing with a bit of a hangover.  After racing Boomers and hitting sub 6's the day before I had a feeling what to shoot for at a consistent pace.  This was a very low-key and fun race and glad to bring back some hardware.  It was definitely a great feeling to run with the course biker and a great experience since this type of experience happens once or now twice in a lifetime.  Very happy from a former un-athletic self like me!  Onward!

2014 Putnam 8 Mile - 50:03 / 6:15 & Post July 4th in BK & LI


Net Time: 50:03
Pace: 6:15
Rank: 9th
AG: 70.81

2 years later, another 8 mile PR on a tough course and 5th of the year.  After two subpar races due to illness, I think I'm getting back into the groove.  Although I have to say it was a tough one as by mile 3-4 there were feelings of dropping out.  I was happy to keep it together, readjust my goals and patiently worked my to a PR.  Onward!  A bit off tangent, but after the race, it was probably the best 4th I've ever had-
