RACE: Brooklyn Half (5/21/2016) TIME: 1:28:48 (PR by 6 seconds)
While due to miscellaneous scheduling problems the week leading up to the race itself was a frustrating one, the morning of the start couldn't have gone better. I woke up with plenty of time and remembered to leave the apartment with everything I needed. It wasn't cool, but wasn't hot. I didn't get a seat on the train, but was well rested enough to the point that it didn't bother me (too much). I breezed through security, saw some friends outside the corral, got maybe 800-1000m of warmups in, and had plenty of time to wait on the bathroom lines. I even had five minutes to sit down before getting into position. In contrast to last year's corral debacle, I was feeling pretty good.
