On Sunday morning, under a nice sun and by 27F (-3C), we had a nice race in Central Park, low key, not counting towards the 9+1, few runners, and to my surprise, no bagels!

I ran with Evelyne, at her pace for her first 10K ever! She broke very seriously her ankle 20 years ago while rock climbing and just started to run last year.

We finished in 1:19:22 and 23 respectively. I sprinted over the last centimeters…

We started up at 102 street East, going down to Harlem, then back up hill on Central Park North Face. We saw rest of ice on the ground and some icicles on the rocks (stalactite of ice?). The hill is tough. It makes the over hills look like nice undulations.

We pace our rhythm on sub 13 minutes per mile and we went faster and faster, with the last mile in 12:22. We finished relaxed and pumped up with this debut race for Evelyne.

Next week, same location but opposite direction with a start on the South side. I’ll try to race it to see if I can sustain 9:00 minutes per mile on 10K, which should give me a 1 hour time goal.

Finished 1790th overall out of 1878 , 842nd among 867 men, 72nd in my age class.

I go running another 10 kilometers this afternoon with my daughter…
