The NYRR Fifth Avenue Mile is this weekend and by coincidence, I was cleaning up my office this morning and came across last year’s bib. Now I don’t have as many of these hanging around as my friend Bart Yasso. So this one stood out.
When I took a closer look I found two incredible little details that thrilled my inner archaelogist. Can you spot what I mean?
The obvious thing that popped was my projected time, which I presume was based on my age, 7:55. So yeah, I did a little better than that.
But how can you make this up? Since I wasn’t running with any affiliation, my team was listed as “Unattached,” an ironic team name for a guy on the brink of a marriage break-up. So yeah, they got that one right.
But much has changed since last year and we will find out just how much on Sunday at around 10:35 am. See you there.
