Foiled Again!

Once again, I fell short. Luckily, not by nearly the mileage of last week. Maybe I should just forego the West Side Highway, since it is giving me such problems. It's just such a straight shot....

Here's the route. 19.18 miles--so nearly the twenty I intended. When I need 22, I'll have to overshoot the estimation by two miles just to get in the proper amount! On the positive side, I finished in a reasonable amount of time: 2:42:00. That puts me at about an 8.5 min/mile pace, which is better than I was originally hoping to run on race day. I felt like I was about to die by mile 19, but hey, what's willpower for, right?

Onwards....
