or more like Friday morning at the races. This goes down in the books as a memorable meet, not exactly in the best sense either. These Thursday night at the Races are sponsered by NYRR and there are about 5 that occur about every other Thursday night during the indoor sesaon. They are mostly distance races with the shortest being an 800. On the last meet they host a 10x1000m relay, with 10 runners alternating running 5 200's. The Armory is shut down for the night, meaning no practice for the evening. 5x200 with about 5min rest is equivalent to a typical workout so we gathered 10 teammates to make this a simulated workout. Little did we know that it was going to go into the wee hours of the morning. Of the 3 heats my team was in the very last heat. The relays themselves didn't go off until much later than expected, needless to say my team didn't end up starting until 12a, technically the next day. In the end we rocked it with our 9 ladies, 1 gentleman team taking 2nd place overall after an all men's team. Impressive I might say. Do it next year...eh ask me next year.
