  • Sunday bRUNch Returns to Duncan's Dairy Bar

    Duncan's Dairy Bar

    Happy Fall, TMIRCE! What better way to warm up and recover after a run than with the comfort food of a Diner! FYI Duncan's is cash only and has the most magical donuts! As always, bRUNch runs are easy jogs at the pace of the slower runners for 3ish miles. If you have any questions or feedback get in touch with [masked] :-)

  • Thursday Triple M Tempo Run with a Twist: Lions Park

    Join us for the Thursday mid-week tempo run. We'll start as a group, running West on the Mohawk Hudson Bikeway. We'll start with a 1 mile warm-up jog and then run for exactly 18 minutes (bring your watch?), turn around and run back to the same point and bring it home with a cool down jog. Go whatever pace you like, but try to keep the same pace on the way out and back so that we all cool down together! Afterward, we'll negotiate post-run food and drinks.

  • Stair Workout at the State Museum

    NEW YORK STATE MUSEUM

    Get your rump in shape with stair repeats! We will meet at the steps behind the New York State Museum in the Empire State Plaza and run up and down the stairs for a total of 30 min, doing body weight exercises at the top. Run at your own pace! Some may wish to explore the ice skating rink at Empire State Plaza right across from our stair workout either before or after.

  • Hike Dix Mountain

    Exit 8 Park & Ride

    ~DATE CHANGED!~ Skip your long run this weekend and head to the Adirondacks for a challenging high peak in beautiful fall foliage! Dix Mountain is the 6th highest peak in NYS. We will be hiking about 14 miles RT to an elevation of 4867'. This will be a great day for experienced hikers, or TMIRCE friends who are in great running shape and are ready to get some mountain experience. If you are a less experienced hiker, please feel free to message me for more info about this hike. Plan to pack everything you'll need for the day, including essentials like lunch, snacks, water, and layers! Some info about the hike: https://www.lakeplacid.com/do/hiking/dix-mountain. We'll be doing just Dix (not the rest of the range), and are aiming for the Round Pond trailhead off of Route 73. More on that below! We will meet at the Exit 8 Park and Ride and carpool to the trailhead. If you're starting from further north and that meeting spot doesn't make sense for you, let me know and we'll see if we can find a better option! PLEASE READ: I know that the meeting time is early. It will be dark. You will be sleepy. The hike won't even take us that long - why are we meeting so early? The answer is the state is cracking down on illegal roadside parking in the high peaks area - that means the shoulder parking that hikers have used for years is no longer an option. Legal trailheads fill up very early, and this is peak hiking season. WE ARE LEAVING FROM THE PARK AND RIDE NO LATER THAN 5 AM. We just have to do it. We're not going to wait for people who are running late. There's no guarantee that we'll get a parking space in the Round Pond trailhead even so, and in that case we'll drive down to the Elk Lake trailhead and try for a spot there. We may get shut out of both trailheads, in which case we'll choose another hike to do. So if you are prone to running late for early morning meetings, do whatever it is you need to do to make sure you're on time or don't expect to see anyone waiting in the parking lot! I will reschedule if the weather looks bad! I like to hike with clear views :)

  • Thursday Triple M Tempo Run with a Tunnel in Cohoes

    Mohawk Hudson Bikeway

    This week: tunnel to tunnel! We'll start as a group at the Mohawk Hudson Bikeway trailhead in Cohoes, do a leisurely warm-up to the first tunnel then take-off! Run for exactly 20 minutes (bring your watch?), turn around and run back, trying to meet back at the tunnel at the same time. Go whatever pace you like, but try to keep the same pace on the way out and back so that we all finish together! After that a nice easy cool down where we will discuss dinner options.

  • Wednesday Humpday Hill Workout, Troy Edition

    Uncle Sam Bikeway

    The days are longer, the weather is warmer, and we're hitting the hills for Wednesday workouts! This week come join us for hills in Troy. The Logistics: We'll meet at the Uncle Sam bike trail parking lot off of Gurly Ave (between 9th Ave and Stoneledge Dr). There is street parking nearby on 9th Ave or 114th if the bike trail parking lot is full. From here, we will walk across the street to the back entrance/exit road (for cars during business houes and the spiritual residents during the off-hours) of Oakwood Cemetery - white pillars here at ~7 Gurley Ave. We will then do repears of this hill. Disclaimer: this hill is more substantial (~2x as long and ~2x as tall) than the Halfmoon hill and the number of repeats will be significantly reduced. Options are to go to top of main hill or to continue to the border of the headstones (where it is a false flat). This hill is almost entirely in the shade which provides nice coverage from a hot sun (or the rain). Everyone tackles this hill at their own pace! We will run this hill for 30 minutes, after which there is an optional cool-down run (downhill) to nearby Snowman for an ice cream recovery (if they're open). Invite List: All abilities/paces welcome. Those new to TMIRCE (and guests) are encouraged and welcome. Pace and number of intervals are up to you!

  • Sunday bRUNch is back at Iron Roost in Ballston Spa!

    We will meet on Front St and head out and back for a ~3 mile run ending with brunch. We'll be running en masse (or in two masses if we have a bunch of people haha) at the pace of the slowest Informal Runner, so don't be shy! If you don't feel like running and want to socialize with us, we'll get to the restaurant around 10:15am. I hope to see you there! Feel free to email [masked] with feedback or bRUNch location suggestions.
