Wow It's Hot!

I was in Prospect Park this evening (just running, not racing), and had a firsthand look at the people who braved the weather to race in the initial PPTC Al Gordon Speed Series race.

Folk didn't look happy. And that's an understatement.

Whooh, hate the time of the year when you're transitioning from spring weather and you get an unexpected scorcher. Hope everyone takes precautions and transitions well into the hot weather running. (Thankfully, it gets cooler this weekend).

P.S. Anyone got thoughts on who can fix the water fountain by the GAP entrance to the park? The one on the path that's constantly clogged? My favorite fountain, but the standing water tends to get kind of gnarly.

That is the greatest fountain in the world, when it is not clogged.

We should all dial 311.


Thanks for the shout out about the race. We had 67 runners. That is more then we had in our final race of last summer and each race gets bigger throughout the season.

Poor Al Goldstein.....he keeps turning into Al Gordon.

Thanks for cheering us on, Brad. It was rough out there on that last mile, but was glad to break 19:00 under those conditions!

I was running the bridges at that time (I thought the breeze would feel good) and it was H O T ! We are not ready for this yet.

Hi there. This could be inspirational for all of the Brooklyn runners.
