Final Thoughts on Queens Half

  • Those hills starting at mile 9 were brutal. How about a course reversal a la Brooklyn?

  • Enjoyed rooting for runners, especially colleagues, at ~mile 12.25, top of the last and seemingly highest and steepest climb.

  • More sore today than I'm accustomed due to the downhills, especially down hills. Quads mostly.

  • Racing heart rate was 176 getting as high as 189, albeit at the finish! No wonder I needed a walk break. And the hills didn't help.

  • Comparatively, my NJ Marathon race barely broke 170 over 26 miles. Lacking training manifesting.
