Random Thoughts Before the Super Bowl

-- Here's a look at the Armory schedule for the indoor track in Prospect Park. Right now, while there's a discount if you're a Park Slope Y member, it doesn't look there are any other deals. From the folk I've spoken to, the track looks pretty sweet. Anyone been there? What are your thoughts?

-- New York Times has an article on one of the finishers at last Tuesday's Empire State Building Stair Climb. It's definitely one of those events runners have to do once.

-- Here's a great link for those considering trail races in the coming year. Greater New York, New England and some Pennsylvania events are covered, and, based on the races I'm aware of, it's fairly comprehensive. Thanks Chris!

-- Internet registration for the Prospect Park Track Club's Cherry Tree 10 Mile Run/3-Person Relay ends Feb. 17. (And, of course you can do race-day stuff, though note it's capped at 900). I've done the 10-mile race in year's past (not a fan of racing three loops in the park, but so be it), this year I'm doing the relay, with a bunch of friends from past running experiences. It's a lot of fun, racers have received technical, long-sleeve T-shirt in past years, and is a great way to judge your winter training in a low-key, fun experience. Oh yeah, and then there's this: "Enjoy a post-race massage courtesy of the Swedish Institute massage therapist interns!"
