It's not very often that I'm pleased to be not running but this evenings NYMAC relays was held on a very warm evening. The relays is a very popular event nowadays with all places sold inside 45 minutes a few weeks ago. Teams of four running a leg each of a mile lap of Stewart park. I ran in the event last year and although a mile doesn't sound too difficult throw in the fact your trying to run your lap as fast as you have ever done, there are many spectators watching and of course the difficult uphill finish, you can see why the event is as popular as it is.
NYMAC were represented by 8 teams this year including 2 ladies teams which is great to see and when one of the men's teams is announced third place overall it's a very popular result with the spectators.
