It's only one week to go until the Brooklyn half-marathon. The course map has finally been posted; you can see it here on the New York Road Runner's Club website if you are interested.
I had a great run today: 11.7 miles on the challenging hills of Candlewood Isle. In contrast to my last two long runs here, each of which was over a 10 minute/mile pace, I managed 9:42 per mile today. I think between that and the fact that my knees continue to feel good - in spite of almost 27 miles in the last 4 days - is a very good sign.
