Very brief recap of tonight's opening TNTR
Washington Heights, NYC - Hot racing going on at the Armory tonight in the first nyrr 'Thursday Night at The Races' of the season. The opening women's mile was won by NYAC's Megan Guiney in just over 5 minutes. NYAC's Lesley Higgins, made the race by taking it out hard and holding it until just about the last lap when Megan took over. The men's opening mile was won by CPTC's Chris Spooner, who went through the 800 meter mark in a pedestrian 2:14, before turning it on in a blistering last quarter for the win in 4:22, leaving his competitors nowhere in sight. Next up, the women's 800, was won by NYAC's Abbi Gleeson in 2:22, and as for the men's race, I was too distracted with my own warm up for the men's second heat of the 8, that I'm really not sure who or what time won. Ian Brooks, event organizer and announcer, reprimanded some competitor's in the first heat for intentionally dropping out of the race, so make sure you don't do that. Then, finally, there were some 3k's raced, but it became to late to stick around, so those, and all of the results, will be posted here www.nyrr.org by next Wednesday.
