Broadway/59th St-Columbus Circle
... Flash Weather Note... Event hosts have invoked the "Single Digit Rule"... under which team practices are reconsidered when the temperature is forecast to be 9 or below. Tomorrow's 9 am run is cancelled, but athletes are encouraged to do 60 minutes of core and strength indoors, and to run outdoors if you are warm enough.
We'll meet at the TimeWarner entrance, because it's warm. Then, a *slow* warmup run to Bethesda Terrace for some dynamic stretching, 5-10 minutes of stair climbs, and then break into pace and distance groups.
The park looks beautiful this time of year, and our groups set a variety of goal distances, so there will be a run pace and distance for everyone. Usually, run groups go from 6 to 18 miles. If you are in the mood for 26.2, one of our ultrarunners will no doubt be on hand to keep you company.
Note that water fountains are turned off this time of year, but if you bring some cash, there will be probably be a vendor somewhere with Gatorade or water. There is a also a nice cafe opposite Engineers Gate (East 90th Street) with water, hot tea or coffee.
Reminder: Please post your pace and goal distance when RSVPing.
