NYC Half + Fresh Air Fund = Doing Good

Sure, the insanely popular* NYC Half Marathon is sold out, but you can still run in the footsteps of Catherine the Great and other fast ladies (and gentlemen) by signing up to run with the Fresh Air Fund. FAF is just one of a boatload of charities you can run for. Just think how good it will feel to run through the streets of NYC…in order to help a kid get a little break from the streets of NYC.

*And I do mean insanely popular. A race of over 10,000 run in the high heat and humidity of NYC in August? That fills up in a couple of hours? Along the West Side Highway? Yeah. Um. Insane.

  1. Kastor v Catherine and Kiplagat will be a good race. I’d be putting my money on Kiplagat (if I didn’t come from Scottish stock).

    • Kastor doesn’t run that well in heat/humidity, I’ve noticed. I’m going for Ndereba on this one. I think she’d have won in Beijing if she had noticed that she was in second.

      Maybe you can wager a steak and kidney pie.

  2. Not to mention that you have to be in your corral at 6:30. But it is a downhill course.

  3. Make it a six-pack of your best beers and you’re on.
