New Year's First Run & It's Irene's Birthday! 1/1/11

2011 New Year's First Run!

OK, That's A Little Insane!

Much Better!

It's Also Irene's Birthday!

* New Year = New You *

Get Motivated Stay Fit!

The Holiday Season through New Year's, is when people gain the most weight and get out of shape.

You joined The New York City Runners Group for motivation to run, and to keep running. Now that the weather has gotten colder, you'll

stay motivated when you run with our group!

After we run, we'll go for drinks

and reward ourselves for our efforts

and welcome in the New Year

and toast Irene on her Birthday!

The Tough Get Going ...

2011 New Year's First Run!

Try to arrive around 3:00 PM. Keep

in mind that on weekends, the trains

aren't always on time. We'll have about

30 minutes to meet & greet, and we'll

start running at about 3:30. If You Arrive late:

In case you arrive late, after 3:30, just walk right into the

park at the West 86th street entrance and walk straight ahead onto the path surrounding the reservoir.

I'll be wearing a black DGA (Directors Guild of

America) baseball hat and I have blond hair.

That's me in the center:

As always, I'll have a car where

you can put any of your stuff in

if you like, while we run.

For New Members And

First Time Runners:

Once again, it's cool if you're just starting as a runner. You won't be the only one. I'll give you running tips to help ease the process. So don't let your inexperience cause you to flake

and not show up. We're a cool and friendly bunch.

You'll get inspired and have fun and soon you'll be in great shape.

We'll be running together based on similar speeds.

You can Run, Jog or Jog/Walk.

You can run at your own pace and do as much,

or as little as you can, if you're just beginning. After we run and our endorphins have kicked in for a turbo-blast otherwise known as a runner's high,

we'll go have drinks, socialize & settle the world.

We'll be going to a nearby cool Bar/Lounge

where we can sit, stand (secretly stretch), and socialize.

All Drinks Will Be

1/2 Price Until 10

For those who want to grab a bite to eat,

there will be a wide selection of affordable tasty food to choose from.


Joining us will be select members from Run Meetup Run!

The New York City Filmmakers Group

The New York City Actors Group

    It was a great run, thanks for all the great tips.
    I felt challenged, and today I woke up feeling refreshed instead of exhausted!

    Another 5 Star Meetup thanks to a cool mix of easy-going and friendly runners. A great start to the New Year's by running and spending time with the fun members of our group. The bar gave us free shots for Irene Birthday. :-) At first, we socialized for a bit and then we warmed up for 10 minutes. After that, I showed the group a few tips on how to improve their individual form and their running skills as we ran on some easy rolling hills. The run was a good workout & lots of fun. From there, we went to a cool bar on Amsterdam Avenue & had some drinks & food & some spirited conversation, as we hung out in the fun ambiance of the Bar and celebrated Irene's Birthday and the New Year. It was lots of fun meeting all the new & interesting members. Thanks to everyone who came, & for those who couldn't make it, hopefully you'll be able to join us and add to the fun at our next run. I look forward to seeing everyone again at our next Meetup. Until then, all the best. :-)

    Just what I need. Every year a run on New Year's day gets me right back on track after the craziness of Christmas and the night before. Happy New Years!

    Btw.... I'm at 30 East 30th Street... Are there any real running stores close to me to get running shoes and clothes at? Left all of mine at home.
