I keep the group running.

In which neighborhood do you live?


How much running experience do you have (distance, time, focus, etc)?

I am an experienced distance runner, having completed 6* marathons and a few dozen half-marathons, and have a passion for trail running. I'm also a certified running coach and professional communicator with an entrepreneurial streak.

Where do you like to run?

Hudson River Park is one of my favorite places in the world to run. I love running on beaches and mountainous trails. In our hood(s), I mostly run around the Sunnyside Rail Yards, along Skillman Ave to LIC (and beyond) and under the trees of Sunnyside Gardens.

    Hi Jay! You're invited to try a Scottish Country Dancing Meet-up Group! The patterns made by the dancers working together are beautiful, we use great music, no previous experience doing Scottish country dancing is needed to join us, & you'll meet your partners on the dance floor. Our teachers will teach you what you need to know to enjoy this dance form & to make new friends! Check us out: Scotia Scottish Country Dancers Meetup Group & The New York Scottish Country Dancing Meetup Group!

    Hi Jay, thanks for joining! As the group starts rolling out, it will great to have your input and the input of your group members to help continue improvement in Lodati Park as a neighborhood asset.

    Hey Jay, I might be leaving work tomorrow a little too late which is why I can't make it back to Woodside in time for the Tuesday late run. However, if you (or anyone reading this) would like to run on the Hudson at 7 pm tomorrow instead, let me know. It's closest to my job and I still would love a run. Otherwise, definitely will be there next time.

    Jay, due to your kindness, I might give up the running last Tuesday. I've decided to run on a regular basis and lose a weight, anyway. Once I get there, I will be glad I went !!!

    Hi Jay thanks for your post - I only just saw it so I'm sorry for the late reply. Wasn't feeling crash hot last week so didn't make it but will be there this Saturday. Cheers

    Hi Jay,
    I'm looking forward to my first meetup this Saturday. I'm a little nervous.
    Cheers, Sam

    Hi Jay. That sounds awesome! I'm actually not interested in running with a group at this time (maybe in the future), and I'll likely be moving to Brooklyn this summer. The reasonable running group was a suggestion made by one of our volunteers. Where in Sunny/Woodside does the group run? It must be on concrete 'cause there are no grassy parks in the area.
