Running in Central Park

Back from a conference in NYC and what a blast! One of the best ways to start off an agenda-packed day was by joining other conference attendees for a fun 5 mile run through Central Park. How cool is that? Hosted by City Running Tours, these two affable fellas took us through Central Park, chatting about its history, its quirks and even gave us (hurrah!) a little gossip! Who knew, for instance,  the Dakotas turned down Madonna? Bet they wouldn't do that to Oprah! My little fun run has sparked another thought - maybe do a half marathon this fall? Tell me what you think....is it too ambitious? 


  1. Would you please remove The Oxygen Abs Special hits newsstands on July 7th, 2009! It appears at the bottom of every post! Muchos Gracias

  2. If you can run 5 miles you can definitely run a half marathon. I'd never run more than ONE mile in my entire life before I signed up to run a half with Team in Training. Six months later, I crossed the finish line, and it is still one of the biggest accomplishments of my life. I'd totally recommend a half - you can do it!! :)

  3. Thanks for the encouraging words Kristin! I'm totally stoked!
