So it seems like people are excited for fall. I’m not one of them. I like hot. I like sun dresses. I don’t like sweaters and jeans and bulky jackets.
But I am willing to make the best of it. Plus, right now it’s cool and brisk, which I can deal with.
So what’s on my radar this month so far? Sorry for the lack of photos!
Jack Rabbit Sports Marathon Lecture Series. Can’t believe the ‘thon is just 6 weeks away. Kind of wish I was running it. I went to this series last year, and recommend it.
Week of 9/20 – Only 6 Weeks ’til NYC Marathon! – We’ll cover marathon specific training tips including the importance of rest & recovery and advice for your long runs. Week of 9/27 – Injury Prevention w/Certified Physical Therapists – Local PT’s will discuss how to identify and prevent the most common long training run injuries and answer your specific questions. Week of 10/25 – Last Minute Questions – With less than two weeks to go this is a great chance to rid yourself of those last minute butterflies by getting all of your questions answered.
Overview: Race to the Finish participants will run or walk a circuit through Hudson River Park highlighting the sections of the Park both completed and yet to be developed. The Race begins and ends in the Park’s Clinton section on the popular renovated plaza on Pier 84 in sight of the aircraft carrier, Intrepid, Circle Line Sightseeing and P.D. O’Hurley’s. The route takes runners down past the City tow pound which will eventually be converted to parkland; past the newly opened Chelsea Cove section above Chelsea Piers; by Pier 54, where the survivors of the Titanic disaster arrived in New York City; the Gansevoort Peninsula – where the Department of Sanitation is currently making plans to vacate, and through the Greenwich Village section to the Pier 40 complex at Houston Street just above the Park’s Tribeca section.
Free Technical Running Shirt and Powergel!!!!!!!
JackRabbit will give free PowerGel to any runner wearing a JackRabbit shirt or hat as they pass by. If you don’t have one, they can stamp your hand and you can come by the Brooklyn or Union Square stores and get one of their $10 technical running T-shirts FREE on that day only. If they are out of your size, you get you a raincheck so you can get it for free when it becomes available. Look out for them in Prospect and Hudson River Park on weekends, check their website for locations and days.
14 Hour trek around the island!
Walk from the Cloisters Across the Brooklyn Bridge! CRAZY!
CULINARY CLASSES AT BOWERY WHOLE FOODS
The Bowery Whole Foods offers very affordable, sometimes free, cooking classes. This one catches my eye, but all look delicious.
These six films offer unique perspectives and arguments on food, agriculture and eating more healthfully. Through these filmmakers’ efforts, the public has access to fascinating, real-life documents about this pivotal era in the “food movement.” Combined, the screenings reveal visions of hope and a shared mission to improve our food system and provide a perfect segue for further discussion.
Wine, beer and hors d’oeuvres will be served in the lobby after the program. Our sponsors include: Jimmy’s No. 43, Lagunitas Beer, NY State Wine & Grape Association, Red Jacket Orchards, My Friend’s Mustard and Utz.
