Dark in the park, again

Great Tuesday run last night! There were probably 10 of us, and it was a pretty speedy group. We got off to a quick start and I felt good. I didn’t want to go slower. But then I had to pee! Of course. So I used the restroom at the Boathouse and quickly got back on track. I thought I might catch up with the team, but I ended up only being able to see them from afar for the rest of the time. It was fine, though – a good, meditative solo run. My splits were mostly sub 10, and I finished in 59.34, so I’m happy.

There was one weird thing though – on the west side, in the 70s and 80s, all of the street lights were out and it was absolutely pitch black on the loop! I was caught in the dark in the park once again. But this time there were tons of other people around and I wasn’t worried at all. It was just a little bizarre. Also, I saw a raccoon! What a night.

Here are a few pictures from the NYRR long training run a few weeks back that I never got around to posting.
