Race of the Weekend: Queens Half

Unlike Brooklyn, which closed in record time, Queens has plenty of spots open - in fact you can sign up on race day for the 7 a.m. start. I suspect its less to do with the fact our Queens brethren are less committed to a local half than the timing - July 24, on what may turn out to be one of the hottest weekends of the year.

Temps will hit the mid-80s by 9 a.m., as many of you are finishing up, and the day promises to one of the humid-blech days better spent soaking yourself in the waters off Coney Island or the Jersey Shore (I think I'm going to search for a nice mountain stream). It's not a day for a PR, most likely - so make sure you're listening to your body and staying hydrated.

Other options this weekend? Nothing really local, though it you have wheels, a short trip to CT, NJ or upstate gives you some choices.
