Early in the morning

It's pretty rare I have a nap at 7am. It's also pretty rare NYRR turns 50. To celebrate, there was a 5:30 am midweek race. 5 miles. Thing is, NYers are crazy. Runners are crazy. NY runners are really crazy. While 5000 signed up for a 5 mile 5:30 am race, just under 2000 showed up. In the pouring rain. Luckily it wasn't too cold. I hadn't run since Sat. and with my triathlon coming up, I didn't run it hard. I ran with a team mate and just took it easy. It was actually pretty nice in the rain.
