NYC Half '13 - PPTC runs Manhattan
The 2013 NYC Half took place in freezing conditions on Sunday. The 38 red PPTC shirts to cross the finish line at South Street Seaport gave great contrast to the sea of green for St. Patrick's Day.
Karen Ziga was PPTC's top finisher at 1:23:40, crushing her previous PR. She was the 37th overall female (out of 7,597) and 15th in her age group. Karen had complained about a nagging hip, but she looked great! Colleen Herbert and Anna Tattan follwed Karen in 54th and 67th.
Bjorn Arntsen and Rahmin Pavlovic came in neck and neck as PPTC's top two males. Vinny Spiteri took third for the team.
From Facebook, I see we had PRs out of Karen Ziga, Nicole Importico, and Kamen Yotov. Surely there were more! Let us know in the comments.
Around ten of us volunteered at the final water station, just past mile 12. We had a blast working with NBR to ensure everyone entered the tunnel hydrated.
If you finished under 1:50 gun time, try to find your finish here. Thanks to Selina Rutovitz for the tip.
And finally, don't forget the post-race meet-up at 61 Local starts now!
