A Little Weekend 60k

While many folks are running the 47th JFK 50 Mile in Maryland this weekend, I have decided to add one more event to my 2009 adventure, the NYRR Knickerbocker 60k in Central Park.  This event does have some sentimental value.  It was my first ever ultra event and will be my 28th ultra in the last 4 years.

Unfortunately, the course leaves a lot to be desired.  A 1.46 mile out and back is followed by 9 laps of a 4-mile loop in Central Park (basically transverse-to-transverse).  Yikes.  Round and round we go.  Well, it will at least be a nice 37.2 mile training run, as well as an opportunity to catch up with some friends.

Best of luck to everyone running JFK (and anything else) this weekend.

  1. It has certainly been a hell of year for you. See you tomorrow. Looking forward to it as it will be my last long run for a few weeks. Surgery on the schedule 12/3 !@#$%!@#$

  2. I sometimes like running multiple short loops...you can "get lost" and forget how much it's starting to hurt. Have fun running 'round the park over and over.
