Lessons Learned from the NYC Half

February 3, 2014 by Coach Gail Kislevitz

When you run with TFK, you get seasoned coaches who have learned valuable lessons throughout their careers. We have accumulated knowledge from running our best races and probably more importantly from our worst. And you, my dear TFKers, are the beneficiary of that knowledge.

So here is a lesson I learned from running one of my worst races. It was 2007 and the New York City Half Marathon was run on a hot, stifling day in Read More

TFK Angels

January 28, 2014 by Coach Gail Kislevitz

There is such a thing as angels. I know, because I saw them out on the Fred Lebow Half Marathon this past Sunday shivering in frigid weather with a nasty wind-chill factor. And they weren’t even running – they were standing for more than an hour, cheering! Team for Kids alumni  - a drum roll please for: Bruce Stark, Joe Kalinsky, Ravi Adityan, Jenny Maes, Laura Summerhill, Jerry Schelzo, and Vasque Alvarao - were on Read More

The Journey Begins!

January 25, 2014 by Coach Gail

And we’re off! 

Welcome to our TFK NYC Half team. Today we ran 6-8 miles in freezing cold Central Park. But the enthusiasm and camaraderie of the group warmed us to our soles. So many runners said if it weren’t for the team, they’d be back in bed, toasty and warm, and maybe feeling a little guilty.

I had so much fun meeting some of our new TFKers, like Sebastian from Australia who met two other Aussie Read More

The Coach and the Kid

December 9, 2013 by Gail Kislevitz

The Jingle Bell Jog on Saturday was a day for running in Santa outfits, wearing reindeer antlers, celebrating the joy of the season and raising funds for NYRR’s youth programs. The kids were out in force, and many are a force to be reckoned with. Some of you TFKers may remember Jiovanni, the 12-year old boy who spoke at the beginning of our last practice, the Light up the Night in Central Park. He’s a Read More

Down to The Wire!

November 1, 2013 by Coach Gail Kislevitz

 It’s down to the wire. One day to go! I hope you are chilling, relaxing, and staying off your feet. I know your nerves are frayed. But just focus on the prize and you will be fine.

You have put five months of blood, sweat, and tears into this dream, which is about to become a reality. On Sunday morning don’t think of the marathon as 26.2 miles, but as your victory lap!

Own The Day

October 28, 2013 by Coach Gail Kislevitz

It was a gorgeous day for the pre-marathon Poland Spring 5M in Central Park on Sunday. Our team, some decked out in Halloween costumes, gathered in Cherry Hill for pre-race stretches and words of wisdom and thanks from a Young Runner Ambassador.

Our runners were urged with extreme caution – and a few threats – to not race the run, but to enjoy it as a fun run and everyone seemed to comply. I’m sure Read More
