    Déjà Vu All Over Again with the NEW 2019 NYC Half Marathon Course Strategy

    Déjà Vu All Over Again with the NEW 2019 NYC Half Marathon Course Strategy
    Bakline's Official 2019 NYC Half Marathon course strategy post. For newbies, the headline is: some early hills and sharp turns, a generally flat middle, and a steady uphill final 5K. For those who ran last year, the headline is: more Brooklyn at the start, less Central Park at the end, a hairpin turn, and a basically unchanged middle stretch. Read the full post for elevation analysis and advice on how to tackle the course.

    Don't Just Take the Bridge. Build It.

    Don't Just Take the Bridge. Build It.

    One of the beauties of running is how malleable it is to your needs. Some, for example, use it as a means of escape, while others as a means to connect. Last night’s Take the Bridge race was a prime example of the latter, and I was lucky enough to witness it in action.

    Just another relay with Mile High Run Club at Tracktown USA

    Just another relay with Mile High Run Club at Tracktown USA

    We're not entirely sure the New York running community is aware of how comprehensively awesome it is - simply because there's so much to know about. At the very least, it's worth the occasional pause to consider major assets to the community with the presence of organisations like the Mile High Run Club, inspiring coaches like Vinnie MilianoStephanie Creaturo and Chris Forti, and running clubs of all skill sets, speeds and sizes like the Lost Boys Track Club, the Dashing Whippets and MRHC's own team, to name a few. The list of resources is endless and makes the city an oasis of opportunity for any type of runner who finds their way here either as a permanent abode or a temporary guest.
