Last night, with several Gothamist staff members running in the Nike Run Hit Wonder race in Central Park, we decided to go along for moral support. Nevermind the fact that we arrived after the start of the race, didn't have contact information, or that nearly 10,000 runners all look the same when wearing red DRI-Fit t-shirts. We'll ignore those details and say that we did run into Neil, but there was no sighting of Kevin or Doug. Congratulations to all those that ran and finished, for we were struggling just standing around in the heat.

Unfortunately, we were unable to see any of the musical acts that lined the 5-mile course, but we did watch the post-race concert with Joan Jett and the Blackhearts. For those that ran, how did you do? Did you enjoy the music and did it help you run through the heat?
