Lately I’ve been hearing about all kinds of exotic locations in NYC for races (exotic meaning not Central Park, where 99.9% of NYRR-sponsored events are held). First it was the Lincoln Tunnel Challenge, and now it’s the JFK Runway Run. I was half-heartedly considering both (remember, I never more than half-heartedly consider a race until the deadline is actually that day, due to my commitophobia), until I saw something interesting:
If the field for the JFK Runway Run is similar to last year’s field, and if I get the same time I got in the Ras na hEireann, I will win my age group! I’ve never done that before, or even placed. Now, I know both of those are big ifs, but runways are flat, right? And this is the same day as the NYRR Race as One, so hopefully all the good runners will be sprinting around Central Park while I huff and puff and breathe in jet fuel.
It is SO on.
