5 things from the NYC Pride 5 miler

The Front Runners Pride 5 Miler is always my favorite race of the year.  It kicks off Pride Week in NYC. Last year the mood was incredibly celebratory because the run took place just days after the Supreme Court’s marriage equality ruling. This year, the tenor was a bit different. The horrible atrocities from the Orlando’s Pulse night club were top of mind, and the race started with a moment of silence.

Running a race isn’t going to change anything as far as lunatics committing disgusting acts of terror, I know that. But it felt good to stand with a whole lot of people who believe in equality. Or maybe some of the participants just like running near a bunch of people wearing rainbows and tutus, which is not something I could hold against anyone.

Spring/Summer 2016 Race Calendar

Hello there. I’m taking full advantage of the nice weather, my proximity to Central Park and that my ankle (knock on all of the wood) is still in good shape and I’ve signed up for a bunch of races.

Will you be running any of these? Any other ones I should add to my list?

Here is my spring/summer race list:
