run + brunch (bRUNch)


Meetup/Hangout – 10:00 am lululemon - Hub Seventeen -- Enter lululemon on 17th St & 5th Ave. Go down the stairs located on the left side of the store. That's where you'll find us. The store opens at 10am. Show up, say hi, chat, and drop off anything you don’t want to run with: jackets, bags, phones, etc. Somebody will always stay to watch the stuff. Run – A little after 10:00 am Run any distance you want (1 mile, 3 miles, 5 miles, whatever). We'll head to the West Side Highway together. No pressure and no limits. Totally informal. Lots of different paces for lots of different people. Even walking speed is encouraged! Brunch – 10:45 am - 12:00 pm **WE'VE PUT THE BRUNCH BACK IN bRUNch!!!** Pot Luck style brunch at the lululemon store. Contribute a little something to share with the group (a small package of fruit, some cookies, muffins, juice, etc.) That easy, that informal. Don't worry if you can't or if you forget, it's a shared food party! What to expect: A seriously fun group of runners who definitely do not take running too seriously . We will meet, chat, RUN, stretch, chat, eat and then leave. It’s that easy. First we run, then we eat!

East River Track Workout

East River Park Track

There's only one trick to getting faster... and that is to run fast! Come join TMIRCE at the East River Track on the Lower East Side for free, creative, speed workouts guaranteed to make you faster one step at a time. What's in store?! Left turns, circles, intervals, sprints, relays, glow sticks, high fives, EVERYTHING! The fun is snow, sleet, rain or shine, year round! Lace up, show up! All paces welcome! You are not too slow! Run fast, take chances! NOTE: there is NO secure place to store bags, valuables, etc. We'll be nearby for most of the workout, but can't make any promises. Please use caution and do not bring anything you cannot afford to lose. We pile all our stuff together and are (relatively) nearby for the duration of the workout. We have never had a problem with theft, but that doesn't mean it won't happen. After the workout join us for beers at ABC Beer Co. on Ave C between 6th and 7th St. WORKOUT DETAILS: Workouts vary week-to-week but include 400s, 800s, Ladders, Timed Intervals, Deck of Cards, etc.
