|Bart Yasso reading from My Life On The Run.|
For the run itself we had the option to run either 3 or 5 miles in Central Park with group leaders. I ran 2 miles to the store and was planning on walking home so I went with the shorter option and am so glad I did. I ran with Bart for most of the run and got to hear more of his stories and general running advice. He spoke about races he's attended, how he fuels, and how he loves running at a slower pace since he ends up running with the ladies! I had to laugh when we were talking about fueling during a marathon. He said he always tells people "nothing new on race day" but that its generally harmless to have a piece of candy or two from the little kids along the course. Then after a few seconds he added "if someone is offering you a warm philly cheesesteak at mile 24 and it looks good, go for it. At that point in the run its not going to ruin you and if it tastes good you'll be so happy the rest of the race!" I know he was just joking around but it was funny to hear a guy like him suggesting a cheesesteak!
|Saw this on my walk home.|
|They've already started putting up fences and bleachers!|
I'm so glad I was able to attend the event and have my eyes open of other great marathon related events coming up in the next week.
