October 19, 2017: UPDATE the below code has expired. If you’d like to run the Big Apple Half Marathon or the Queens Half Marathon, use NH10 as your discount code!
Hi all! Just popping in briefly to share some news. I was selected to be a NYCRuns ambassador. What does this mean for you? Race discounts on a ton of races in NYC! The team at NYCRuns gave me a handy promo code and I am excited to share the goods with you.
Use the code BC17NH at checkout and you’ll save $5 or $10. You can use the code as many times as you like.
NYCRuns produces races on behalf of organizations (usually charities) and also runs their own races. The discount code only works on NYCRuns races.
Here are some of the races coming up where the code applies:
Today, TCS New York City Marathon will grant race entry to 16,211 runners through the lottery drawing. That is only 17% of all applicants. Put another way, that’s the same acceptance rate as getting into tough school like Williams College and even harder than getting into Georgetown University (18% acceptance rate) and Johns Hopkins University (18% acceptance rate).
Were you one of the lucky ones?
I feel very lucky to call Central Park my running home. Running around the Great Lawn in the early morning is so serene, if not for the view of skyscrapers, you can almost forget you’re in New York. Over the past 5 years, I’ve learned quite a few things about running in the CP and the park’s history, so I wanted to share them. Where’s your favorite place to run?

Happy Monday! Did you have a long weekend? Did you do anything fun? I spent the weekend in Great Barrington, Massachusetts (I had a hair and make up trial for my wedding!!!). Here’s how I spent the last week in workouts.
Tuesday: Lyon’s Den Power Yoga hour-long class with Matt (Hey, it was Valentine’s Day!) They played power ballads and it was taught by John Murray who was an awesome instructor. Sign me up for more.
Happy Thursday! How was your week? Just looking at last week’s recap make me tired. There was so much I wanted to do and I wore myself out doing it.
Here’s what I got into:
Monday: Barry’s Bootcamp (arms and abs day with Patrick Frost)
Wednesday: 4-mile morning run in Central Park
