the road to new york
Decided not to go to the track meet for the mile race this evening, time constraints, had to go into work tonight, and was tired from a couple of hectic workdays and just not motivated to run a track mile race today. Moreover with the nyc marathon training officially having begun yesterday, the urge for miles over The Mile clinched the decision.
The running gods, however, intervened – in a helpful manner – when I went out for a typical 10 miler. When nearing the park, ran into my friend Joe, a 60 year old super masters runner, who had me join in for a few miles of tempo run in the park. So ended with the best of all worlds – some distance with a workout of a 3 mile tempo run. Thanks Joe, thanks to the running gods…
