Fifth Ave. Mile: 3:52.83

FAST, not record fast, but since the route changed about 10 years back it might never be broken. When they first ran this, running was all out and crazy fast. Today's runner have strategies and try to follow some sort of goal to reach the famous mark. When you have 1 mile being covered in 3:52 I am not sure what type of strategies will work but running all out from wire to wire might be the only strat, that will break the mark.

Newton , Christmas in September

Yes it is true the gifts are coming early this year. We have all been waiting for the Newton Guidance Trainer and they have shipped.

Intelligent control for all foot types on all types of terrain, from groomed bridle paths to technical mountain trails. The Momentum is an off-road trainer designed for runners committed to a more efficient Natural Running style. Whether you follow Chi, Pose, Evolution, barefoot running or just want to run better, the Momentum allows you to run naturally — with greater efficiency and less overuse injuries (like Achilles tendonitis and plantar fasciitis). Recommended for any distance and terrain, as well walking or hiking.

Now I know Newton say hiking, really, who would waste a great shoe just hiking, strap them on and hit the trail, full speed.

With the Tough Mudder coming to Englishtown, NJ in November, what better way to test these puppies out.
Keep you posted on the results of how when the weather changes and the leaves start to fall, what better way to mix it up then to hit the trails. After all those long hours running on the road, in the heat, against traffic, hearing the leaves russell on each step is one of the best sound of tranquility.
