I had a great time today! Thanks Scott, Mike Oliva, and others.
Such a friendly bunch of people!
Mike was especially helpful in letting me know where the group was when I ran across the GWB from NJ.
Since I didn't do the entire 50K+ with the group, I ran a loop up in Central Park after the talk at Bryant Park.
I really enjoyed the talk too. I'll be buying Scott's book on Kindle.

Wow, so happy to run with the group through Dyckman Fields! Thrilled to keep up for that 3-minute portion of the run -- my daughter stayed with you to 181st Street -- just amazed at everyone running all the way around the island, never thought that was humanly possible -- you are my heroes!! See you all tonight at the book launch. What a great way to start and end the day!! : )

Denise; I will be entering the run on the Greenway just under the GWB if my timing works out. I am running over the GWB from NJ. If I'm early, I will run north on the Greenway to meet up. Mike Oliva was kind enough to provide his cell phone # so we can find out where they are. Just check his message above.

So... the group is not running through Inwood Hill Park, but down Broadway to Dyckman, and then over to the Greenway? That looks like about 10 miles from the start (depending on the route), so the group will probably arrive at the Dyckman Greenway entrance around 6:40-7am? As a new runner, I can't (yet) even achieve a 10-min. pace... but I'll try to keep the group in my sight until my exit at 181st street! : )

I would bet on a stop at Twin Donut up at 10th ave and B'way, or one of the produce stands along B'way between there and Dykman.. Once on the Hudson River Greenway, there won't be much opportunity for stops. Battery Park City would be the next, and there should be plenty of places to get replenished at the finish in Bryant Park.
There may be ice cream and hotdog vendors on the Greenway around 86th st, but I don't think any fruit stands there.
There is a cafe of some sort on the piers south of 42

People have been asking me if they can meet us mid run. Timing these meet up points is often impossible so I suggest giving me a call during the run if you are joining us and I will do my best to answer and let you know where we are. [masked]. The pace will be no faster than 9:30 miles but not slower then 10:00 minute miles because Scott has an event to be at in Bryant Park early in the afternoon. See everyone Tuesday!
