I was extremely happy and proud to help a fellow friend of mine run his first 4 mile race today. The race took place in Central Park, a venue widely used by the New York Road Runners for much of their races. I helped him train and get prepared for this event for the last month or so. He was able to run practically the entire 4 miles with some short walks at aid stations and at a hill close to the finish. Days like these when I’m able to share the fun of running with others is extremely satisfying.
