This Thursday, we're switching it up. It's race week in NYC, which means all the crews are coming together for runs, events, parties, and of course the Brooklyn Half Marathon. To kick things off, we've got the New York City Run Crews SHAKEOUT Run hosted by Jessie Zapo & Power Malu.
Meet at the Under Armour Brand House (583 Broadway b/t Houston & Prince) this Thursday at 6:30pm as usual. We'll leave at 7pm to walk over to OVERTHROW New York in time to check bags and hit the 5k shakeout run with everyone. Don't feel like meeting at UA first? All good, just meet us at 9 Bleecker at 7:30pm!

As of now, our favorite race. Not only did New Balance kick-off the Brooklyn Half Marathon with a 3-day pre-party in DUMBO (fully stocked with beer), but the actual race day conditions for a Grand Army Plaza / Prospect Park to Coney Island ass-hauling couldn't have been better.
With "Summer" officially here, and saying hello with a 90 degree bitch slap in our face, the comfortable 50-60 degree fall training weather is a temporary thing of the past. After a Crown Heights (it's not Prospect Heights… or "Crow Hill," whatever the fuck that is) sleepover featuring vegetarian spaghetti, coconut water, and a pit bull named Ceelo, on May 18, 2013 we hit the BK Half corrals in our freshly-printed singlets ready to run. A little misty drizzle was more than welcome, and the 60 degree, overcast morning set the stage for an awesome run on a great course.
With plans to rock-out around 8 min per mile, things felt too good and we ended up comfortably pushing it at around 7:45 per mile instead. The first 2-3 miles on Flatbush Avenue and around the Grand Army Plaza loop were nothing but fun, and a crazy crowd of feet. Even the first mile or so of the Prospect Park loop was packed, but kicking-it on the .5 mile hill gave us some room. Out of the park at roughly 7 miles and onto Ocean Avenue was the start of 5+ miles of what many call a flat and straight shot to Coney Island. While the straight part is dead-on, we couldn't help but notice the slight incline for a good mile or more.
As Mile 10, 11, and 12 passed by, we were ready to hit some wood. The narrow ramp up to the boardwalk was a beautiful site as we hit near-sprint speeds (a good sign we paced things pretty well, or a representation of how badly we wanted to grab a huge $5 beer after the race - which we did, twice) and crossed the line right at 1 hour 42 minutes, or 7:48 per mile.
We saw faces from the Bridge Runners, Undo-Ordinary, and even bumped into a friend not seen in over 2 years. Friends and family were classically an hour late arriving at the finish, but who can blame 'em, traveling in those slow traffic-ridden vehicles for 13.1 miles.
Can't wait for next year's Brooklyn Half.
