Easy recovery race in Central Park, with Evelyne and Elisabeth.
We left at 7:50, took a taxi to 72th and Central Park west. Arrived at 8:05. We walk along the corrals up to the departure line, then back to the last corral and we lined up in the not so hot morning weather, maybe 3-4 C with the wind.
Departure at 8:30 sharp after a great American hymn, first down to the Boat House, before tackling Cat Hill. We then passed the Louxor Obelix on the left and the Met on the right, past The Guggenhein museum, the reservoir and more sports places before turning above Harlem.
The hills on the third mile went well with the sun, and then it was all downhill till the finish line.
We ran 13’05” per mile with Evelyne and finished in 52′. A very good recovery run, no pain, a lot of fun. Eli finished well ahead of us.
I enjoyed the cinnamon raisin bagel at the arrival !
