9.3 miles in 27 degree weather in the water wonderland that is Central Park. The Ted Corbit 15K was Saturday morning and I was unsure if I was going to actually run it Friday night. I haven’t been training like I should be, knowing that my next half marathon is a month away. When I signed up for the race three months ago I figured that I would be ready. Well, I wasn’t convinced that I was ready but running in Central Park during a snow storm seemed like a good idea. No really it did. I love snow and living in the city all I see is melted streets and puddles of water.
I thought I would just take it easy and run 10 minute miles just to cover the distance. I did much better than that. A solid 9:10 pace and only pushed it the last mile. My first mile was pretty slow at 9:45. It takes me a long time to get warmed up. I’m so glad I did the race and now I’m pretty confident that I’ll be ok during the Tinker bell Half next month.
It snowed the entire run and I loved it… until it was over and I was freezing! I love Christmas time
