Well it is not everyday you meet the New York Marathon Champ.
While doing my training tonight I met Todd Philpott the reining New York Marathon Handcycle champion. He is hoping to do Boston, Chicago and New York this year and Beijing in 2008.
The program tonight was 30 minutes and I was greeted with a very warm and humid night with a 20-30k North Easterly wind. Crap conditions to run in.
I managed to get through 6.74 klms in the 30 minutes scheduled. Average pace of 4:27 per klm.
Felt pretty comfortable even with the bad conditions.
Edit: Forgot to mention. I had just stopped for a drink while running around the road track in Centennial Park and Todd had just finished his session I think. So I just walked over and said Hello. Nice bloke. I have seen him a lot in the last couple of years but he was always rolling around the road when I saw him.
