@nyrr #PopularBKHalf. New PR, 1:17:45.
I went into this year’s BK Half way more prepared than last year. Also, after dealing with the weather at the @bostonmarathon this year, I had easily finalized all the tricks I would use the morning of to stay dry and warm. I made it the start corral on time (shoutout to @wilterdink for letting me crash close by) and filed in with almost corral full of friends. Jeremy Klapper, Will Appman, @travisc_k, @jkuehnjr, @williambaber, @jordanodonoghue, and countless others all surrounded one another. A lot fast guys were flanking and it felt nice to be in their company.
I was off to the start I wanted and was able to get in and out of Prospect Park while hitting my desired splits. It was the 5 mile stretch on Ocean Parkway that would prove to be the real test. I lost my pace a little bit on Mile 9 & 10, but was able to recover with help from a second wind from the @streets101nyc cheer squad, powering through the final 3 miles to bring it in to hit my original goal of sub 78. #Latergram #FueledByScience #NoDaysOff
