2 Fun Things

Yes, that is the Boathouse in Central Park. In honor of the beginning of the summer season, I am proposing a Team Drink there this coming Friday after work, 5:30-7:30.

For me, The Boathouse is one of the great pleasures of New York - nay, of life itself (yes, I've already started tippling for the evening)!
There, we can drink, watch the aria-singing Gondolier fake an Italian accent, talk about running, not running, David Lynch, Star Trek, or whatever else is on your minds.

Secondly, Saturday we have a special treat. Jae Gruenke, GCFP - of The Balanced Runner(tm) - wants to try out a new running lesson with us. It will take just 15 minutes and is done standing. It's meant to be done outside right before a run, to make the ensuing run feel more fluid.

More about Jae's methods:

Developed by Jae Gruenke, GCFP, the Balanced Runner is a sophisticated, truly individualized approach to improving running form using the Feldenkrais Method of Movement Education®. Each session consists of a careful observation of how you are currently running, then a learning process structured to help you feel, step-by-step, how to reduce excessive tension and impact, use your joints properly, and find support, elasticity, and power. The learning format is low-stress, making it safe even for runners dealing with injury. Yet it is potent enough to impact runners performing at high levels.

If you are a competitive runner, Balanced Runner sessions and workshops will help you reduce imbalances, increase your economy, and improve your technical control. If you’re a beginning runner, you’ll get a solid grasp of the fundamentals. Whatever your current level, you’ll improve your performance.

See you Friday, Saturday, and that too much togetherness?
