good Most humid 22 miles 22 mi 03:37 09:50 pace

What a day to have the longest run. 90% humidity when I started at 7:15, and by the time I finished my first 5 and it was time to start my marathon pace miles I was totally drenched.

We started the group run by running the Queensboro Bridge. Hills! Then back, up first (more hill), up 90th (steep hill) and into the park.

I managed to do 6 miles at MP (was supposed to be 12) before I had to admit defeat and slow down.

And the miles after those 12 were supposed to be even faster, but obviously I had to abandon that plan in favor of just getting it done. I did the first 5 alone, the next 7 with my charity team, the next 2 alone, and I was REALLY struggling alone. I took a water break where I tweeted that I was dying and cutting my run at 20.

But then I saw two charity teammates coming my way, and I joined them and I instantly felt SO MUCH BETTER! I stuck with them until mile 21 (even did a second Harlem hill round, much better than my first time around alone), left the park and ran one very difficult final mile toward my train, and I was done!

I had the foresight to email myself the splits from my watch on the train because my (RELATIVELY NEW) Garmin FR 220 started automatically deleting all my workouts and it is really frustrating. And they won't replace it. ANYWAY.

I have never sweat so much in my life.
