Jabra made their bones creating bluetooth headsets for mobile phones. With time, they introduced bluetooth headphones, and their latest are the Halo Smart wireless stereo earphones.
I’ve tried a lot of different headphones for running. I’ve tried different earbuds, but I have never run with bluetooth earbuds before trying the JLab Epic2 Bluetooth Wireless Sport Earbuds, which was a new experience for me.
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.
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.
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.
Last year, I ran the inaugural Star Wars Rebel Challenge (10k and half marathon), which combined my love of running and my love of Star Wars. Since they were going to run it again (and later announce the Kessel Challenge), I had to run it again. The races were run on January 16 and 17 […]
As the year slowly draws closer and closer to its end, so does the 9+1 to gain entry into the 2016 NYC Marathon. With two races left to complete to get my automatic entry, I went out on a brisk November Sunday morning to run four miles in Central Park to run the Race to Deliver 4M.
For the first time since 2011, I was not spending the first Sunday in November running 26.2 miles through the five boroughs in the NYC Marathon. Even though I was forced to take a year off from marathons, I was determined to get healed up and run it again next year. In order to do that, I needed to get my 9+1 in, and ran the NYRR Dash to the Finish Line 5K the day before the marathon in order to get my races in.
One of my favorite races to run is the New York Road Runners 5th Avenue Mile. It’s a fast, hard run – which is the type I race I don’t normally train for – but enjoy the challenge of it.
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.
