Believe it or not, my longest run since racing the 2014 NYC Marathon in November only took place this past weekend.
On Saturday I ran 5 miles (to and over the Brooklyn Bridge then back) and even though it was super windy ( almost just as windy as it had been on the day of the marathon), I was instantly reminded of everything I love about both distance running and running in NYC.

So, that’s what I did, and here I am.
I’m not sick of it all. In fact, I’m only just getting started. But I have come to find that there are certain things that do tend to get on my nerves. … Read More
