With the 9+1 program, 9 races, 1 volunteering activity, I just qualified for 2016 NYC Marathon.

So, I have already two races for 2016, with the 2016 Brooklyn Half Marathon !
I qualified for the latter by volunteering at this year race !

My last race for qualifying was the UAE Healthy Kidney 10K Race in Central Park.

It was hot and sunny, 25 C at 9:00, a late departure time !

I started in the last corral with Evelyne and Elisabeth. I navigated a lot till miles 3 among slower runners. I should have started in my corral. Anyway, today was not a day for PB as it was a bit too hot.

I finished in 1:07:12, a pace of 10:50 minutes per miles.

I ran 1:03:21 in January by -5 C.

So, cold weather is better for performance !

I finished 5,687th overall out of 7,947 runners, 3,521st men out of 4,252 and 375th in my age class.

The course had a start near Columbus circle and ran clock wise around Central Park.

I noticed very few volunteers. I would advise NYRR to change its NYC marathon qualifier program to 9+3, to get more people to help, with -1 for a no-show not notified in advance.
