Brenn gave his prediction for the marathon and we were joined for the first time from Sam, who goes by the handle Starvin Sammy. We had some technical difficulties at the end so the show kind of kept going like Ol’ Man River, but we get that sorted out.
Mostly we spoke of the NYC Marathon and some advice/suggestions on the race.
The topic du jour: NYCRuns discussions about a revitalized club-series for 2013. Are there enough clubs interested? From an initial meeting, things sound promising.
Gregg is recovering nicely from the Hamptons Race, enough to challenge Ritz to a race, and looking forward to doing it again.
Brenn is moving from the undecided column into the leaning-to-race column for New York, and promised to commit to a target time one week before New York. We intend to hold him to it.
And Joe was very charitable in giving his advice on how to race a marathon, based on his extensive experience at that distance. He’s done two.
Gregg detailed his adventures in the Hamptons Marathon. And a good showing indeed.
Amy returned with a bit of Paris and a bit of a Little Red Lighthouse swim.
And a bit of inside info on running Paine-to-Paine from Joe.
There was no show on September 16, which was when Yonkers was held. So Steve spoke about it, and the upcoming Narrows HM. We were joined for the first time by Mark Thompson, a good runner who’s getting ready for next week-end’s Hamptons Marathon (as is Gregg). Good luck to those guys.
Brenn and Joe ran the Tuckahoe Challenge, so they yacked about that. Gregg is preparing to run the Hamptons Marathon, so we yacked about that. Bonus trivia: Although the “Tuckahoe Challenge” took place in the Tuckahoe in Westchester County, there is another Tuckahoe in the Hamptons. Go figure.
