A random comment about today’s Queens Half:
82 people broke 1:30 for the half.

In comparison, 351 people ran faster than 1:30 in the Brooklyn Half back in May, when it was 48 degrees and 93% humidity.
Ahh, but how do these compare to the Bronx Half’s, when they were run in the summer (and I confess, I miss the death march down the Grand Concourse):
Running sub-1:30 in any conditions is great. Running it in today’s humid morass (what happened to fall?) is awesome.
