Blog Roll - Reid Coolsaet

I was hoping to surprise myself this weekend and I did by running 62:42 in the New York City Half Marathon. Luckily the weather was perfect and we had a nice tailwind for the last 3 miles! It should also be noted that this AWESOME course is net downhill by about 30 meters. The first 10km loop in Central Park is rolling and by no means fast, it’s actually quite tough but once you’ve run the first complete loop you have 2.5km of mostly downhill running to finish off the park. After that you run down 7th Avenue through Times Square, which is absolutely amazing as the runners have the whole street to themselves. Then you take W 42nd St to the West Side Highway and run South towards Ground Zero.
