|Emerging Runner: “Don’t quit your day job”|
Besides my occasional Central Park runs, my “day job” has nothing at all to do with running. Yesterday these two worlds collided (or at least touched) at an industry lunch event. A small group of us had been invited to discuss digital media and sitting across the room from me was David Willey, the editor of Runner’s World magazine. Despite the temptation I didn’t ask him if I could write a guest column.
My run this morning went fine. The humidity is supposedly lower today, and that may be true, but lower is a relative term. I was already drenched in sweat by the 1.5 mile mark but in certain directions the cooling breeze worked as effectively as an air conditioner. I chose a completely different set of roads to run, yet completed today’s run in exactly the same time as yesterday’s. I am consistent if nothing else. C’mon Runner’s World, give me a shot!
