A Running Life With Friends

Rain clouds drift away. Light finds it way through the breaks. A glow on the horizon’s edge brings about the serene. A day is ending and night softly settling. #nikenyc #nikerunning #keepitmoving #justdoit #makeitcount

A time to clear the mind when past opportunity was abruptly interrupted. A chance glance. Brushing of fingers on metal. Water cascading. Time etched forever.

A very humble runner surrounded by friends, Tracey @inmyrunningshoes @destineerevealed @hartsiepics @appleshinenyc, did something special today; so proud of @hopeful_1 winning her age group today and placing 7th women’s overall @newyorkroadrunners #nyrr5avenuemile in a time of 05:07 repping @teamrunnyc proudly! Kudos to her and everyone who laid it out there on 5th Avenue today. #nikenyc #nikerunning #teamrunnyc #werunnyc #justdoit #keepitmoving #makeitcount #nyrr

The old walkway is now an underground tunnel. Ever changing landscapes cannot dim the familiar. The open space a place of solitude and prayer for those who will never forget. A run of hope and memory. Thank you Tracey and @jeffreyb76 for just being there. #neverforget #nikenyc #nikerunning #werunnyc

A new skyline has filled the empty space. Chapters have been written and closed since that day. Memories remain. Thanks for hosting @bridgerunners. #tributeinlight #neverforget

They stay with me from beginning to end. Through the easy, into the buildup, culminating into the power sweat down the lamp lit walk, navigating the park while the autumn cool settles in. Their smiles a reflection of understanding. #nikenyc #nikerunning #nikeplusnyc #justdoit #makeitcount

Sun descends leaving behind a dance of colors. Cool breezes say hello. The last of days of summer passing. Night comes early. Thanks for letting me use your phone for the pic @msalimin. Nice surprise with @hendrix.10 joining us on the inclines. #nikenyc #nikerunning #bridgerunners #justdoit #makeitcount

August 2009 I put on the Nike Sportsband for the 1st time. Today, 9,000 miles later surrounded by friends @datrippeleffect @inmyrunningshoes @hilarmy @msalimin @hartsiepics @appleshinenyc @destineerevealed @tdev and an 18 miler in the muggy soup of a morning in New York. I didn’t know what kind of runner I could be back in the day, still figuring it out now. A race here and there through the years and all I do know is that I run. These years and miles have been spent in the warm embrace of family and community. None of the miles would be as special without them. Thanks @teamrunnyc and @bridgerunners for opening a world to me. The aforementioned folks as well as present and past pacers such as @runningdude @lucyledezma @eltigre1167 @jucica17 @kw3rdna @lono3 @biznezninja @linnaf @jeslynnyc @highsnobbery Tracey, Jen, Lesley, Justin, Angela, Joe, Francis, Val, Taegin, Josh S, Jen T, Manny, Libby, Bayly, Sean, and even @abhifornow for a brief time, thank you for the gifts of family love and unconditional friendship. And to @jmznyc and Kenley, what can I say? All of these miles came about because of Run Club. Ever grateful for the chance and opportunity. I hope I validated your faith in me. #nikenyc #nikerunning #nikefamily #nikecommunity #teamrunnyc #keepitmoving #justdoit #makeitcount

7 miles in morning humidity. The pores of sweat greeting the sun as she climbs past the skyscrapers. Tugboats mirroring my sluggish steps. Way to #nikeplusnyc folks! You guys look great from up above Verizon Field on #Trunday. #nikenyc #nikerunning #keepitmoving #justdoit

@bridgerunners A very large turnout for a little tour of the sights for our #btg friends @harbourrunners. I lost track of folks but it was all good after running into Amanda and @highsnobbery and we got some free socks to boot. #bridgerunners #btg #harbourrunners
