AT WHAT POINT IN A RUN DO YOU GET A RUNNER'S HIGH?

AT WHAT POINT IN A RUN DO YOU GET A RUNNER'S HIGH?

I don’t.

 

It’s the post-run runner’s high that I personally experience. I could have just completed 4+ hours running on the trails in the middle of a steamy NYC summer debating my life choices every step of the way, but that runner’s high kicks in after the run and magically I can only remember the good bits of the run and I’m already planning the next one.

WHAT KEEPS YOU RUNNING IN NYC?

WHAT KEEPS YOU RUNNING IN NYC?

At the expense of sounding full of feelings, it’s the athletes showing up to the runs or classes that uplift me every. single. day. in NYC. At my previous job, I used to dread trekking into work by 7AM, I hated it. I now have 30-50 athletes WANTING to run before dawn, and consequently making me WANT to coach them to run at that hour. Being surrounded by runners who want to learn and grow and better themselves regardless of early mornings, sleet, snow, demanding workouts, and competing commitments is what keeps me running in NYC.

WHAT IS YOUR MOST MEMORABLE RUNNING EXPERIENCE IN NYC?

WHAT IS YOUR MOST MEMORABLE RUNNING EXPERIENCE IN NYC?

Without hesitation, my most memorable and pivotal running experience in NYC was in the Summer of 2012 when I volunteered for The Great New York 100 Mile Running Exposition, an unsanctioned running adventure through Manhattan, the Bronx, Queens, Brooklyn and back to Manhattan again.

I had just finished reading Born To Run and wanted to see what this ultra running scene was all about. If you want to see dogged persistence seeking achievement at the outer edges, pace or crew someone the last 20 miles of their 100 miler. Things get dark and twisty from 80 miles onward, but watching someone defy all logic and common sense and personal limitations excited something deep within me.
