5th Avenue, Manhattan
22 September 2012
This was my third running of the New York Road Runners 5th Avenue Mile. The course runs straight down 5th Avenue, from the Metropolitan Museum of Art at 80th Street to Grand Army Plaza at 60th.
My PR for this race is 7:34, which I did not expect to beat since I don’t speed train. My race strategy for this race is literally “run like hell” and hope not to fall down. I did add a long warm-up this year and tried to relax, finishing six seconds slower than my best time.
Me at the 3/4 mile mark.
