New Year's Eve & New Year's day

Eve: Ran 4 miles in Central Park with Pam. At midnight. She is a member of the Ny Road Runners and they sponsor this event every year. There were a lot of people there. I hate running but I'm glad I did it. Ran the whole thing (no walking) and finished in 43:08. Our splits were 11 minutes for the first mile, 10, 11, and 11. There was this dastardly hill right after we passed mile 2 that just sucked the life out of me.

Day: Went to LI and raced Persuasion in the Annual Ed Brooks Memorial Regatta. There were six boats and we came in second! It was the highest placed finish the boat has ever had, in any race. I had a crackerjack crew: Pam, Marty, Larry, and Uncle Jack. Every boat put up a spinnaker, making the traditionally non-spinnaker race a spinnaker event. Not too cold and not too windy, it was a great day. Ill post pics to the boat blog soon. This week.

Happy New Year!
