There have already been others who said it better than me, so I’m not going to try to wax poetic about this event, but I participated in this tonight in Central Park with what seemed like almost every runner in NYC that I know.
Thanks to Pavement Runner for starting the movement; thanks to Abby for organizing the NYC one. (Sidenote: I talked to Abby the other day at Lululemon run club, and she is a truly wonderful person with a ginormous heart.)
Abby said a few words, asked us to observe a moment of silence and then sent us off.
I ran with Emily and Kathleen and we did the bottom part of the loop, part of the Reservoir and back around the West Side.
Wonderful idea, wonderful night for a run.
