Summer weather has officially hit NYC which means hot and steamy running conditions. That didn’t stop us and tons of other runners from getting out there and hitting the pavement on global running day. The 4 miles weren’t exactly refreshing but they did feel like a great workout. Feeling lucky to be able to have access to so many incredible running routes in NYC and grateful for fantastic running partners. Happy Global Running Day everyone! Hope you find some time to lace up and get out there 😊

Fred Lebow was a runner, race director and the founder of the New York City Marathon. His statue is in a beautiful spot in Central Park. For those of us that faithfully run loops and train in the park, he is reminder of strength, determination and good will. I like to think that he is standing by still coaching and encouraging each and every runner that passes by. 

Apparently it is good luck to touch the toes of the Fred Lebow statue before the marathon. Today was an absolute beautiful day for a run in the park. It also seemed like a fitting day to ask for little luck from Fred. I will be doing the NYC Marathon in just 10 days. My first marathon. I will take any luck I can get. Thank you Fred, for giving me and 50,000 of my closest friends the opportunity to go for a little run through the city! I will definitely be thinking of you and saluting your statute when I near the finish line. 

Happy Wednesday my friends!! Keep on running. 😀👊🏼
