just back from a 4.1 mile group run with scott jurek in central park! anthony and steve swung by my house this morning and we drove into the city together. we got an incredible parking spot just two car lengths away from engineers gate (where the group run kicked off)! at the park we met up with brennan and lucimar, who also ran with scott.
the run was organized by jack rabbit sports, and was the perfect follow-up to scott's in-store slide show presentations on wednesday and thursday. the run went north to the 102nd street transverse and across to west drive. there we moved on to the bridle path for two loops, and finished the run back at engineers gate.
scott was a gracious host - and made every effort to run and chat with the various paced runners of our large group. at the conclusion of the run, he took questions from the runners and posed for pictures. tomorrow he'll host another group run, this one in prospect park, brooklyn. don't miss it!
on deck for tomorrow, along with anthony and steve, is the caumsett park 50k!
