BRM and others running NYC

not sure if any have already ran this one before and or familiar with the long process of getting to the start and WAITING. its all worth it in the end but it makes for a long day. I was in the first wave after the Pro start and had to catch bus at 5ish AM and the race didn't start until 10am. They had some food (bagels, banana,clif bar type) coffee, water but beyond that you are on your own so if you like certain items before a race and if its cold /rainy be prepared. It was cold my year so I bought $5 sweatpants at wally world to wear and then just donated at start. I only say this because if you are use to a local race that you show up 30 minutes before the start you don't worry about it but this one you will be out there for 3-4 hrs before starting.


cheap rain/wind jacket is a plastic trash bag.

Been on vacation all week so just now reading all the replies about my BQ question.

I already have a good fitness base, but damn y’all got me inspired to try to get BQ within the next 3 years.

re: Official Running Log/Marathon Training Thread
Great advice here. I probably spent more time getting to the start line and waiting than I did on the course. My experience from 2019:

I was wave 3 so a 10:30 start if I recall. I was up and headed to the library around 6. Took the bus from the library. Ride was much shorter than expected and got to SI in like 35 mins. It was cold, low 40’s maybe. Used wal-mart sweats to keep warm. Walked around a little bit but mostly just sat around and did nothing for 3 long hours. No service on my phone either. Enjoyed a bagel and coffee, used the bathroom multiple times. Got in my corral to wait some more and finally got going.

Next year I will take the ferry and depending on my start time leave a little later. I’ll also pack a second breakfast. I was hungry by 9 and a stinger waffle and bagel wasn’t enough.

16 miles this morning.

Better weather than I have had but still a sweat fest. I think I just sweat more than most, it’s so bad that my socks and shoes are even soaked by the time I finish.

Anywho, Chicago is only 5 weeks away. I kinda just want to get it over with at this point and put this training block behind me. I’ve had so few runs I felt good about.

I did 10 this morning and the last few were with soaking wet socks. I hate that, it’s like I can feel the blisters forming.

Starting to feel the same way. I did 14 this morning with 30/15/15 of GMP and faster. I just felt drained after. I even changed my route to allow me to stop back at home, change clothes, and get more water. Still felt like crap after the last rep. It’s just hot and I’m not enjoying some runs right now.

Y'all ready to de-acclimate? Lol. I always thought the worst part about running in the south was the summer, but it's not. It that time from Sep. through the end of October that's brutal because of those pockets of 90-100 degree weather that persist throughout "fall".

Once I'm acclimated, I'm set... Takes 2 weeks plus to acclimate to hot weather and two days to de-acclimate. This morning was gorgeous in the low 60s. This is de-acclimation week then next week is 90 plus, FML.

did a trail run with some of my boys this morning and it was completely still with 90+% humidity. meeting at 6:30 AM and fighting spiderwebs and stagnant water smells while you're dripping sweat is just a few of the perks. i literally kicked an armadillo that crossed the trail right as i ran by this weekend.

Sept till the true cooldown in late October is the worst time for running. i'll take 5PM runs in July over it.

fortunately, my schedule allowing me to start picking up my mileage again has lined up perfectly to where my comeback has been the last few weeks. going to be a brutal month and half, but at least it will be all downhill.

Fake fall has arrived in TX. It's 90 outside but humidity at 38%. Lunch run felt fantastic and when I got out of the shower, I didn't continue to sweat.

Fake fall


Fake fall screwed me up.

I was all acclimated to summer, had no issues with the heat. Fake fall always de-acclimates me and second summer hits me hard.

man i ran at lunch today and it was brutally hot and humid. i had planned on 5 but gave up at 3 miles.

my neighborhood is actually great because it runs perfectly parallel north to south so there's bookooz of shade in the afternoon, but a lunch when it's right on top of you there's just no mercy.

but i'm in that weird spot around Austin where the temps are high 90s and feels like 100 with a good smidgen of humidity.

I don’t think the barometer (if that’s what measures humidity) has ever gotten below 50 or 60% where I live

Temp was 10 degrees warmer than forecasted as is tradition. Sure would be nice if we weren't using the 4th most accurate weather model in the world, sigh.

Anyhow 10x1K 90 sec rest. Average interval pace @ 5:15 per mile so a little slower than 5k except the last rep which was 4:55 pace.

15 miles total with warm up and cool down @ 1:35 total time.

Edit for clarity.

Getting some really nice dry air in Houston thanks to a weak front that moved through Monday morning.

8 this morning with 3x2 mi @ GMP or faster. Felt really good outside.

re: Official Running Log/Marathon Training Thread
New hill route last night. Skipped the fartleks this time and glad that I did due to the elevation increase. 5.25 miles at a 9:30 min/mile pace with 570’ of climb. Happy with that pace as there were more road crossings and traffic to contend with. Getting cooler out there as the HR stayed down despite the hills and pace.
