NYRR Japan Run 4M 2016

On a rainy Sunday morning, I headed towards Central Park in NYC for my third New York Road Runners race of the year. My third NYRR race and my third four mile race of the year. As race time approached, we hid under the small tents in the Japan expo area, trying to stay dry before the race started. As 8am approached, we headed to our corrals for the Japan Run 4M.

NYRR Run As One 4M 2016

In my quest to get entry to the 2017 NYC Marathon, I ran my second race with New York Road Runners on April 24. Like the Run for the Parks 4M, The Run As One was another four mile loop around Central Park, but this time to raise money and awareness for lung cancer.

NYRR Run for the Parks 4M 2016

On a chilly April morning, a week before traveling to Florida for back to back races, I ran my first New York Road Runners race of the year. For a four mile race, we ran Central Park and I started the road to the 2017 NYC Marathon.

Percy Sutton Harlem 5K 2015

As I continue to rehab my foot from the tendonitis, I am continuing to run smaller races to get back on the horse and prepare for my return to marathons next year. On Saturday, I entered the relatively north Harlem from my usual racing grounds of Central Park in order to run the Percy Sutton Harlem 5K.

NYRR R-U-N 5K

In May, I ran the Brooklyn Half Marathon, and afterwards my foot began to hurt. A week later, the pain reoccurred after the UAE Healthy Kidney 5K, so I went to the doctor and after a a bit of an ordeal, I was diagnosed with tendonitis. After a month of not running, a physical therapist recommended I start running again slowly and slowly build up distance again. I worked my way back up to three miles and decided I wanted to get out and race again, so I went out for the NYRR R-U-N 5K.

Recap: Achilles Hope & Possibility 5M 2014

The Achilles organization makes it possible for injured and handicapped runners to race every year. They can be seen along the New York Marathon, as well as other races, and make it possible for those who normally cannot race to have a guide run with them to help them along the course. Each year, the New York Road Runners have a five mile race dedicated to this organization and the impaired runners it assists.

Recap: Boomer’s Cystic Fibrosis Run to Breathe 10K

As a heatwave overtook New York for over a week, the temperatures made running a problem and required much preparation and hydration to take to the roads. The last day of the heatwave fell on the Saturday the race was scheduled and it was downgraded from a 10k race to a four mile fun run in New York City’s Central Park.

Recap: Achilles Hope & Possibility 5M

On a cloudy, humid, 80 degree morning, we gathered in Central Park for a five mile loop to honor Achilles and the handicapped runners they support to run races like the NYC Marathon. Although the sun wasn’t out, it was quite hot as we ran the Achilles Hope & Possibility 5M.
