Did a Half Marathon in Brooklyn NYC this past Sat. Was a nice run. I ran it just to run it was nice to set a new PR for a Half Marathon. The weather was nice got a little warm towards the end of the race.

As for other numbers I ran over 200 miles for the month, 55 for the week.

This week will be some lower miles as I use this as a recovery week. Doing a 5k on Saturday Morning.

What has been going on

It has been awhile since my last post. I ran 52 miles last week. I broke 1100 for the year. Up next a half marathon in Brooklyn, NYC this week. Should be a good race and it is cheap to enter. All else is quiet on the western front just putting some mileage in for good old sake. Enjoy your week. GO PHILS

Philly Tri

Well I have decided to defer the Philly Tri until next year. I have done this races 3 times and it is fun but after Boston I have no desire to train hard for something and I have not been in a pool so that is a problem also. I am going to do some road racing since I have the time now. There are some local races that I want to do and not have to train for. I will keep all posted on my running races as we enter the summer months.

Enjoy the weekend.

So what is next on the racing circuit.

I am may defer my Philly tri to next year. I have not been in a pool and I don't have the will to train for something like a tri right now. Boston was a hell of a race and it took alot out of me. Speaking of Boston I was reading Running Times from April which I just got in the mail. There is an article in there on Boston. It reads almost like my race report. Not to get too drawn into the crowds and such if you want to read the article in full pick up a copy or I can scan it.

So what is next?

5K June 6th.
5 miler June 19th

Maybe some other shorts races not 100% sure yet. Got a nice 40 plus miles in this week. Enjoy your week more to come.

Broad Street Run The Final Verdict

They corrected my time. Next year they need to use a better timing system and limit the umber of people.

Here was their response.

Sometimes folks end up in the no name file (not sure why). Our scoring company is currently matching up those folks (name on registration file to bib number) and posting them as he finds a match. Sorry your results weren't posted yesterday.

Broad Street the saga.....

Well my chip did not record. So I am an unofficial finisher. I will post more when I have more info.

My stats from what I put together

1:00:15 159 overall out of 23075 149 males out of 11369 26 males 30-34 out of 1924.

All I know is the disposal chip people who I will not name until I have an answer should be held responsibility and they should go back to the old chip system. I had a good race but I heard many negative things about the size and the way they started the race. I know the city is in a budget crisis but if you cannot run a race properly cancel it. More to come when I have more answers.
