4:30 or Bust: A Quest for Marathon Mediocrity

More splits this year at the marathon

leave a comment »

NYRR had already announced the wave start for the New York City Marathon this year, but now also announced that they will enhance the use of splits this year. Of course, the wonderful NYRR and Marathon websites make absolutely no mention of the news, but I read it in the new Fall 2008 issue of the NYRR magazine, New York Runner.

They will capture splits at each mile starting at mile 16.  Very cool, but, I have to say, these are not the splits I want to share with the world – some of them will be ugly!

Update: Looks like this is old news.  Guess these changes were both announced at the same time, back in August.  I found this article.
