Last weekend I ventured to NYC to run the 13.1 half marathon in Flushing Meadows Park. The race went well, we pretty much just looped around the park a few times. Weather would have been perfect if it wasn’t so windy. I have a new Half-Marathon PR!
Here’s the results:
I was 126th out of 2228 overeall
16th female out of 1184
4th in my age group out of 311
Time : 1:38:49 (old PR 1:40:26)
Found some cool places in NYC during this visit. We had pizza and hot chocolate the night before the race at Max Brenner.
That is a pic of the Italian Thick hot chocolate – made with dark chocolate – highly recommend.
Then we found this creative salad place – Chop’t.
Then I was looking up other places on yelp – and found Dig Inn Seasonal Market, turned out to be a tiny place with like 4 chairs. But the food is healthy and good.
On our way home from NYC we took a detour to NJ to check out the Swiss Chalet Bakery in Morristown. They were on cupcake wars a month or so ago, figured they would be worth checking out…. and they were.
Now to end this with some race pictures.
