Hey folks, I did a personal worst 4:00:16 at NYC today. I WAS planning on taking it easy and enjoying the atmosphere. Tried not to check my watch too much and ran to 'feel'. Saw that with 4 miles to go I could scrape under 4, but then got snarled up in traffic. With hindsight, I think I overcooked it in the first half. You're right, Northender - a tad miffed but I really had not prepared enough - lost my enthusiasm for running over the summer.
NYC was great, but nothing beats London in so far as race organisation and being a beautiful city. Saying that, I would still recommend it - overall, I had a blast!
