IMAXShift is a hip new spin studio in Dumbo. They have a unique take on the traditional 45-minute cycling class. The bikes are set up stadium-style, facing a giant, Imax screen.
Archery is a sport. I googled it.
And for the more precise purpose of this blog, if you live in NYC, archery is a fun, active way to spend a Saturday night with friends. Which is exactly what I did a few weeks ago.
Gotham Archery (who did not pay me to write this post, but should recruit me to become an instructor) is located in a warehouse on Baltic Street in Gowanus, Brooklyn. For my non-NYC readers, what this means is that I’m really cool for knowing about it.
Now, I’m no expert archer. Trust me, I’d have mentioned any sort of kitshy Paleolithic Era-talent upfront. The last time I shot a bow and arrow was in sleep away camp 15 years ago and also in a dream I had where I was Katniss Everdeen (reoccurring nocturnal theme).
Bibs for Brooklyn Half Marathon sold out in 45 minutes. It’s the largest half marathon in the country with over 27,000 participants. In the weeks leading up to there race I was excited to be a part of the party, but I was hurting running wise. If you read any of my weekly recaps, you’ll see my long runs were either terrible or nonexistent. So I started to lower my expectations. Instead of putting pressure on myself to meet a goal, I was just happy not to have a sprained ankle and to get to run a race with a huge running community.
Hi guys. This week was rough. My whole body started to hurt. I couldn’t get into any of my runs. Momma said there’d be days like this. I’m powering through. Here’s what went down.
