The Power Of Negative Thinking

Posted by:

Last year we bragged and took an inappropriate amount of credit when Dan Hopard finally broke 4:00 for the marathon, and ran a negative split in the process.  This year, Dan returned the Niagara Falls Marathon and brought his PR from 3:51:29 down to 3:29:08, while running another negative split.  Congratulations Dan.

Shhh
Things are a little quiet as lots of folks taper for the NYC Marathon and others recover from a long triathlon season.  Still, we had a couple of strong results this weekend among our golbal contingent.  Ohio based City Coacher Kevin Motsch set a marathon PR of 3:22:09 despite a quick "transition" from tri season to the marathon, while ...

Our first prize is awarded to Roberta Scheinmann for "I was afraid my dentures would ...

Oh – Is That Not Allowed?

Cheater83cdcoverwebFirst there was the story of the Mexican politician Roberto Madrazo, who apparently didn’t realize that if you plan to come across the line of the Berlin Marathon with your hands triumphantly raised, that you should actually cover the entire course, and that if your split for the last 15k is far faster than the world record and you ...

Race Reports

Posted by:

Another quiet weekend as the season winds down, but there were a few noteworthy performances.  Tom Buffolano made his City Coach debut at the Central Park Biathlon, finishing in the top 50 in a field of 250+ athletes.  Look for Tom again next month at the Prospect Park Du, and then making lots of noise next season.

City Coach triathlete/CPTC runner/Nike pacer Lauren Esposito won Grete’s Great Gallop in 1:22 despite the heat.  We also had a great turnout ...

Last night, our Nike RUNNYC workout had a special guest – Lance Armstrong.  He was in NY to commemorate 10/2 – the date of his cancer diagnosis in 1996, to promote his new clothing line with Nike (with 100% of the proceeds going to the Foundation), and to confirm that he is running the NY Marathon again this year.  ...
