I got into the New York Marathon this year and I told myself I would get serious after the Fourth of July. I joined the New York Flyers which is a reasonably priced running club (membership dues are $25/year). The only problem is, all the runs are based out of Central Park – and as ambitious as I am, I’m not THAT ambitious. The most important day of training, the “Long Run,” is at 9am on Saturday mornings in the park! Thinking that I will make all of those runs is delusional.
So. I was wondering about Greenpoint. Is there a running group in Greenpoint? If so, is the group training for the marathon? And if there isn’t a running group in Greenpoint, are there any Greenpointers out there that are running the marathon that want to start a training group?
