Episode 24: This Week’s Racing

March 27, 2011

Listen to Episode 24

We — Amy, Brenn, Frank, Steve, and Joe — chatted about the various races done this week-end, from Frank’s adventure at FDR Park at the Mudders and Grunters 5-miler to Amy’s 15K PR at the Colon Cancer race in Central Park. With a shout-out by Steve for the inaugural Sleepy Hollow Half-Marathon.

Brenn brought up the misadventures of Charlie Engle, a participant in the Running the Sahara movie, who is now in federal prison. Joe Nocera wrote about it in yesterday’s Times. (Engle’s blog.)

Some other stuff came up as well. And a reminder, we plan a meet-up after the Scotland 10K on April 10.

Joe mentioned a movie he saw on Facebook. It is “They Came To Play.” Delightful. And interesting.

    Regarding the 15k’s in Central Park — I agree with Amy! It’s a GREAT distance. The only 15k I ran was as a standard-setter at the beginning of my London Marathon training. When I ran it (2009), it was called the Ted Corbitt, and it was so wicked cold that day that I have to agree with Amy–Ted Corbitt and every other person on the course would have appreciated some hot chocolate.

    I must correct myself. I ran the Hot Chocolate 15k in 2007, too. It’s even one of my favorite race tee’s but for some reason I had it in my head that it was a 5-miler.
