I wear the shorts in spite of the perceived cold. Bundled strangers watch, confused by the reflective running through. Biting winds where none dare to admire the view. We pause. We resume. We run the night. Thanks again to @bridgerunners for hosting on a 28 degree night. #nikeplus #winterwarz #bridgerunners (at Empire Fulton Ferry Park)
A picture perfect backdrop for the @bridgerunners on a great night to run. #bridgerunners #winterwarz (at Empire Fulton Ferry Park)
Who says its cold? A group of @bridgerunners on a warm 28 degree December night. #bridgerunners #winterwarz (at Municipal Plaza)
With the inspiration from @lucyledezma and @theshiba at the beginning of the year, I began this long road to 2013 miles. I will never be able to articulate the depth of what this running year has meant to me with so many of my friends @teamrunnyc and @bridgerunners who shared the thousands of miles. I know people have used many adjectives in connection with me, but really, all that I am and ever will be, is just a runner.
I get to be in the picture this time! A fun run to the tree with @teamrunnyc #werunnyc to celebrate the holidays! (at Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree)
Clouds creep in. Waves lap onto shore. City lights ablaze. A carousel sits in silence. Thanks again for the company @msalimin and we missed you @inmyrunningshoes #nikeplus
So much to see so much to experience. The sounds of the city change with each passing street and bridge. The cacophony of Midtown, coffee shops astir on 3rd, sunshine on Delancey, morning genteel on Franklin, the whipping winds of 57th, who cannot help but love this city?
Study Backs Rotating Shoes to Lower Injury Risk -
You’ve probably been told that running in two or more pairs of shoes throughout the week can lower your risk of injury. According to a first-of-its-kind study, you’ve probably been told correctly, as runners who rotated among multiple models during the 22-week study had a 39% lower risk of running injury than those who almost always ran in the same shoes.
“The researchers wrote that this could well be because different shoes distribute the impact forces of running differently, thereby lessening the strain on any given tissue. Previous research has shown, and runners have long intuitively felt, that factors such as midsole height and midsole firmness create differences in gait components such as stride length and ground reaction time.”
A beautiful night for a back to back. I couldn’t be there to enjoy the @bridgerunners outing, but this made up for it.
A warmer night; a night where seasonal decorations line the avenue. More than a few come to shed the holiday excess. Across again and again, gravy and pie but a savory dream.
