On a cold, windy, rainy morning in the Republic of Brooklyn, I got some shelter under the BQE to snap this pic of my @dawnbreakersrunningcrew for this Sunday @katflower and @dottinhoward—proud Queens natives and St. Francis Prep survivors building families in BK. You do the math. At 540am @katflower checked in to see if we were bout it: “rain or shine right?.” I responded affirmatively and she soldiered over 2 miles amidst a chilly downpour to make DRC a triad for today’s jaunt thru these city streets, over the WillyB and Manhattan puentes trying to warm cold extremities with warm and boisterous conversation. The If Beale Street Could Talk film review exchange on the WillyB—during its forgiving descent to Manhattan—signaled the body’s coming to terms with its own desired temperature and that of the natural world. As we sipped green tea and cocoa at our post-run meet-up locus, we were glad that we braved the weather to get it in, together. Like a self-fashioned Eternal Return we’ll back at it next Sunday at 615 in the front of Peckish—rain or shine, of course. Can’t wait. Cuz when we out here...we out here. #runningculture#clintonhill#fortgreene#coopschool#artsandlettersbklyn#peckishcafe#nycruns#dawnbreakers#dawnbreakersrunningcrew#runningdads#nycmarathon
Don’t ask me about yoga. I have no clue what I’m doing. I do however, feel pretty darn awesome afterwards 🙃 so there’s that. Also, how do you breathe when you turn your body into a pretzel? 🥨 🧘♀️ I feel like a fish gasping for air when I come out of a twist.
It's been almost a week since I joined the marathon. And the official result... Distance: 26.2 miles Time: 07:07:34 Pace: 16:19 Place: 13,696th out of more than 30K participants Catplace: 695th out of 887 Sexplace: 8,071st out of 10,766 It was indeed the toughest physical activity (speaking of stamina and endurance 😩) I've done to date. As a first-timer without any decent preparation or training, in a sea of Japanese marathoners (seriously like they were born to join marathon), to be part of the 4th largest marathon in the US was truly an unforgettable experience. I've been in pain for 3 straight days (I can barely walk. I have blisters, my legs, and ass really hurt 😭😢). But overall, I'm happy I did it. I can finally cross it out in my bucket list of things I've never done before.📃 I'm not getting any younger so not to procrastenate but doing 'it' now or soon is something that I live by. I don't want to reach the point of regret and want to avoid the ever famous phrase - "I wish I could have done or tried that when I was younger." Anyways, this is Miguel signing off for any new stuff. TGBATG 🙏☝ Photo credit to All Sports Community (g.allsports.jp)
“I’m going to have to say my favorite part of being at Custom in 2018 was during the NYC marathon Chaos. Organized chaos that was so much fun and exhilarating. We put on some amazing events this year including traveling to 3 major cities to help runners #getfresh. Along with @streets101nyc it was one of the most fun and emotional marathon seasons I have had yet. Looking forward to next season!” - @greglaraia
Things can happen to you You can’t control the 70% of what’s happening in your world It’s interesting to know that you just can influence 20% of things around you And you can decide 10% of everything that happens... • Make that 10% count and allow it to be the key to open the doors of success, dreams and happiness! • • Greatness come from the understanding of being aware that happiness is the first step... • Greatness and happiness require the emancipation of ego... • Greatness is about harmony between you and the environment... it’s about care, understanding and “thinking again” everything we do, say and think... • Greatness is “Omtanke” • • Speed Session Striving for Dreams NYC 2019 •
