It was cold but shed my outer layers and got into my corral. Had to wait 30 min for the race to start- COLD! We ran around the entire Central Park, then onto 7th Ave on the southern end of the park. We then ran down 7th Ave through Time Square- which was my absolute favorite! Might be my top 10 favorite running memories. So great having everyone cheering you on and seeing all the buildings and lights.
I kept looking at my watch and realized that I was hitting a good pace and was feeling great. I kept trying to pick it up a little bit more each mile. Finally I saw a sign for 800 m left and tried to kick it in. Having all the people around cheering was great motivation! I came in to the Finish at 1:43- PR by 5 minutes!!!! Such a great race, recommend it to anyone!!!
