Well, yesterday I completed my volunteering obligation to NYRR. Though it was fun, it was HOT (70 degrees at the start of the race). Thank God I didn't run this race. I ended up being stationed at the finish line, which was cool, but so glad it is over. I met some nice people and got to see the elite runners cross the finish line. Even got to meet the top three finishers:) Hilda Kibet (finish time was 32:43), Madai Perez (32:49) and Deena Kastor (33:14) Wish I had my camera with me. The winner, Hilda, actually was brought to the medic tent immediately after. That was scary to watch, but hey, she finished in 32:43, I think I'd pass out too:(
The main crowd had 2 people pass out after they crossed the finish line. That was scary too. Made me rethink running races on HOT days. My next race is next Sunday, Father's Day 5Miler in Central Park, I am praying the weather is not hot.
