2014 Battle of BK & Percy Sutton Harlem 5K



Battle of Brooklyn 10 Miler
Net Time: 1:03:13
Pace: 6:19
AG: 70.77%
Rank: 7th


Great low-key event and running three loops of Prospect Park is not fun at all but good for hill training.  I do this race every year and although I was 30 seconds slower than last year,  I think it was a solid and even effort.  Onward!

12 second course PR, but still on the cusp of sub 18.  Ran this race with no rest with long runs and speed workouts.  Overall solid effort and was glad that I was able to hit a fast mile utilizing the downhills on the last one!

Signed up for this race pretty late in the game but was glad that hit a solid time as I wasn't expecting any PRs.  I came into this race with no rest just to see how my legs would handle; good thing it felt fine and especially on the last mile (aided by the downhills).

2014 NYRR Team Championships - 29:56 / 6:00


Net Time: 29:56
Pace: 6:00
AG: 72.44%
Rank: 162/838


It was my 5th Team Championships race w/ Central Park Track Club and fastest course record.  Although I was a few seconds off from my overall PR, it was a 4 second course PR.  I ran the whole race nestling behind my teammate Justin and ensuring I was at least a visible distance with my other teammates.  Given the fact that this a huge race for my team, there’s definitely nerves in the beginning (with unexplainable weak legs at the start), but glad that I was able to race a solid time as I have been racing almost every weekend.  Comparing to my last year’s time (30:00), the splits were a little faster for miles 1 & 3 and lost some steam on the last mile, but still was able to net a faster time.

'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-
