I’m super excited because on Saturday I’ll be lacing up my sneaks for a 4 mile race! When I noticed there were still spots available earlier today, I decided to sign-up. NYRR races are capped and usually fill up before race day.
I love love love four mile races in Central Park. It may be my favorite distance to race. Its much less painful than a 10k and yet longer than a 5k (my least favorite distance to race). I feel like I can push myself to my max, then just when I feel like I can’t push the pace any faster for any longer the race is over. LOVE IT!!!
The race is a part of The Fitness® Mind, Body, Spirit Games. This is always a fun event with lots of cool giveaways.
I just looked at my NYRR history and I haven’t completed a race since last November. All NYRR races use a seeded corral system to ease congestion at the start. Placement in corrals is based on your NYRR race history. My goal for this race is to not blow my current corral placement. It turns out, that I was in pretty good shape for that last 4-mile race and somehow I managed to pull off a 7:38 pace. Clearly there was a tail wind.
What’s your favorite distance to run/race?
