Look away, ethical non-meat eaters!

I tend to go back and forth on whether I prefer to run before or after work – before work means I can go out after work while after work means I get to sleep in. But when I do run after work, I always make sure it gets me to sunset while looking across the East River. Look at the photo and you’ll know what I mean.

If you know me, you’ll know that I’m a huge transit nerd. If you really know me, you’ll know I LOVE subway maps. The colors, the schema, the data – what’s not to love? Here, you can see the remnants of several maps which, when stitched together, are comically mismatched. I mean, there’s lines that don’t exist anymore (V, W) and the Williamsburg Bridge crossing is all Nassau Ave in one and Nassau/Sixth in the other. It’s kinda beautiful, really.

Leaving the office after another October Cardinals postseason run-induced long day, I encountered this disturbingly purple sky. Quite honestly, if I didn’t have photographic evidence of this, I’d have thought I imagined this all while in a sleep-deprived daze.

Meb Keflezighi won today’s emotionally charged Boston Marathon in a blazing 2 hours, 8 minutes, 37 seconds. He’s the first U.S. man to win it since 1983. A little over four years ago, he won the 2009 New York City Marathon, setting a then personal best of 2:09:15. Like in Boston today, Meb’s victory in NYC ended a long drought for American men in the race – an American male last won it in 1982. Here, he’s in the lead pack in Long Island City and wearing the white USA top.

On this day, the 50th anniversary of the first game ever at Shea Stadium, I present the only photo I could find in my archives where I captured the entirety of the field. Not my best photo of the place but it’s nice to have a look at the place the Mets have called home the longest.

I don’t remember where he came from but this inflatable dinosaur, Rex, became the unofficial mascot for Club MPs in 2012. He made the arduous journey from 5 to 3R with us and many a can of air was spent keeping him alive. Alas, his current status? Deflated.

The best thing about running a NYRR race in Central Park? Being able to walk through Central Park at a nice leisurely pace after busting it for a couple of miles. And while snow can be a burden at times (okay, most times), it looks really awesome in this setting.
