The Best Moments In Life

March 25, 2014 by Christine Peddy

They say when one door closes, another one opens.  I was disappointed when I learned I did not get into the 2014 NYC Half, and then Coach John suggested I run with Team for Kids.  I quickly secured a spot, and was excited I would now be running the NYC Half after all.  In doing so, I also learned about the NYRR youth services running programs, which help kids get fit and feel good about Read More

Hail the Under Dog

March 9, 2014 by Coach Gail

As you head into your last week before the NYC Half, do yourself a favor and watch the You Tube of Olympian Billy Mills winning the 1964 Olympic Games 10K.  (billy mills 10000 meter gold medal final). It will have you up on your feet cheering for this underdog.

Mills, an Oglala Lakota Sioux, was born in 1938 and grew up on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota. His father had a vision Read More

Fastest Kid on the Block?

February 27, 2014 by Coach Gail

The Millrose Games are notably one of the most prestigous track and field events in the nation. For a seven-year-old to run in this event is like being in the junior Olympics. One of our NYRR youth runners worked really hard to get there and placed third in his event, which is called The Fastest Kid on the Block. Meet Walter Hillbarrows, whose training is due in part  the fundraising you do for Team for Read More

She passed away last week at the age of 84 from a brain tumor.

A Team Within a Team

February 11, 2014 by Coach Gail Kislevitz

At Saturday’s TFK long run practice, I had the pleasure of running with TFK member Nicole McNamara and her husband Hayden, expats from Australia.  Hayden ran the NYC Marathon with TFK last November and now it is Nicole’s turn to run the NYC Half. They are the perfect team within a team, giving each other the support and encouragement needed to train for distance events while working and raising three children ages 10,7, and 5.  Read More

Your Olympic Moment

February 7, 2014 by Coach Gail Kislevitz

I am a sucker for the Olympics. How could you not want to watch athletes who trained their entire lives for this one moment? Who dedicated every waking hour to achieve the perfect triple axle, or for Shaun White to go for his third Olympic medal? Their dedication, the struggles and sacrifices of their families, and their striving for perfection to their craft is mindboggling. 

At NYRR, we are fortunate to have Derrick Adkins, 1996 Read More
