NEW YORK — The USA’s Jenny Simpson raced to her record-extending sixth win – matching the event-record time of 4:16.6 in the process – and New Zealand’s Nick Willis took the tape in 3:51.3, tying the men’s record with his fourth event title, at the New Balance 5th Avenue Mile on Sunday.

In the world’s largest and longest running road mile race, 31-year-old Simpson won for the sixth time – the fifth time consecutively – with her time of 4:16.6 matching PattiSue Plummer’s event record from 1990. It was also a new personal-best time for Simpson, who ended her 2017 season on the top of the podium after having already won silver over 1500 meters at August’s IAAF World Championships in London.

IMG-1422.JPG Rather than a detailed race report, which I am actually quite excited to share, I decided to keep it brief and tackle another side of my experience at my very first sprint duathlon.

I have never been interested in multi-sport events, mostly because I am a terrible swimmer and have not owned a bike for over 13 years. But this summer I discovered a first year sprint duathlon on Siesta Key and thought I would give it a try. I have been running for 33 years and I guess I just needed to try something new.
