4 mile easy run (goose egg for the weekend)

A big goose egg for the weekend (no mileage) for no reason other than laziness.

Easy 4 miles this morning (31:27) before work (almost talked myself out of that one too).

Kara Goucher was third at the New York City Marathon on Sunday with the fastest US female marathon debut time ever (previous best was Deena Kastor). Kara ran a time of 2:25:53 on a windy day in New York City. This was the first US female runner in the top three at this race since 1994. World record holder Paula Radciffe won in a time of 2:23:56. Both, I believe, ran negative splits.

The US had 4 men in the top 10 (that hasn't happened since 1987) with the first US finisher in 6th place, Abdi Abdirahman.
