Yes, I am done with marathons!

B&A Trail Marathon Audrey Blanda 3:53:45 Yes, I am done with marathons, because it is inconceivable to me that I will ever, ever run as well as I did on Sunday, March 4 at the B&A Trail Marathon in Severna Park, MD, a suburb about 10 minutes from downtown Annapolis.  The short story is that more »

President’s Corner – March

My three-year old son discovered a new track and field event on TV: the Puddle Jump. It’s kind of like the opposite of the steeplechase.  Instead of trying to jump over puddles, you jump in them, and as in the long jump, athletes are scored based upon distance.  However, the distance in the Puddle Jump more »

President’s Corner: February 2012

By Mark Frankel I tried a new pre-run meal last week: sushi…… .. Ok, I didn’t plan it intentionally.  It just worked out that way.  I took the day off from work to drive my wife to a class.  I didn’t have time to do my usual morning run, so I decided I’d run in more »

Definitely Not a PR Kind of Day

By Greg van Inwegen:  The Manhattan Half Marathon was not timed, but rather a fun run and it was definitely not a PR kind of day. I didn’t come across any ice (except a little in the water cups) but up hills were slow due to snow. My bone head mistake was not wearing my more »

I too braved the Manhattan Half Marathon

By Aubrey Blanda:  I too am so happy I braved the elements to run with NYRR in yesterday’s Manhattan Half. After finding the most awesome free parking spot ever right off Central Park West near the finish (something some people also dream their whole lives about!), I was pumped! I met my NYC running buddy more »

A Snowy Manhattan Half Marathon

By Paul Kartanowicz I decided after the first mile that I wanted to save my legs and that a PR was just unattainable, but I turned it into a nice high Aerobic longish run. That way I still got in a quality workout despite the circumstances and I didn’t beat up my legs too much. more »
