Well its springtime again and some of you who have donated in the past have been asking me, when is the next big run? Quite frankly, I have been asking myself the same question. Before I get to that, I should provide some context. Since the 50K race last May in Bear Mountain, I have completely revamped my running style and have only been running in the Vibram 5 fingers- essentially barefoot. As a few of you can attest, this has not been an easy transition. I switched because some day I would like to run a 50-mile (not K) trail race, and I felt that my old running style was too hard on my knees and lower back- at least over the long term.
With that in mind, and 6 miles being my longest “barefoot” run so far, I have decided to support my good friend and 50K race partner, Todd Jennings, in his historic run down the entire length of the Hudson river. Todd’s run will benefit the Hudson River Sloop Clearwater, a non-profit organization founded by folk music legend Pete Seeger in 1966 that seeks to preserve and protect the Hudson River. Since there is no way I could or would ever want to run the full 315 miles, as Todd will do in 8 days, I have decided to run part of the final leg with him to provide support. On Saturday, May 19th, I will join him and run from the George Washington Bridge near the top of Manhattan to Battery Park- roughly 12 miles. While I agree this is nothing epic, I feel that this will be quite a challenge for me and let’s face it, Todd’s run is epic, as is his cause!
