This Sunday monk and I are running the Manhattan half in the greatest city in the world evah! Whoever guesses the winning times will receive prizes!!! Results will be posted on Sunday 8/3.

Setup: NYers are mean b@stards. Not only did they change the course last week to make it counterclockwise, but we go up the biggest hill in the city TWICE. The Grand Prix series, featuring a half in each borough, gets progressively more difficult as the year goes on, so as this is is the 4th of the 5 it will be challenging to say the least. Hot weather and high humidity will make this Central Park race difficult despite the early 730am start.

elkid's stats: coming off a bad few months due to illness and such, as of late The Kid has been showing signs of recovery and comeback. Yesterday she ran 10M in just over 2 hrs despite recent crap training - not as fast as she's been, but definitely faster than she's been lately. Her PR for this distance, 2:18, was at May's Queens half marathon, which began the crash & burn for her. Her determination, never-say-die attitude, and the promise of postrace beer will work in her favor, but her growing fear of this distance will not help her.

monk's stats: this supah fastio keeps improving despite the boiling heat of Da Bronx. Consistent training and speedwork are the cornerstones of his regime, and have no doubt set him up nicely for a PR, which currently stands at 1:35, also set in Queens. Despite harsh conditions at the Bronx half a month ago, he still managed an extremely impressive 1:41. The wife & kids will be at this half to give additional support, which should really work in this family man's favor. Plus, there's the promise of postrace beer!

So let's get to it, kids, and GUESS THE TIME!
