Friday Fitness News: A Smörgåsbord

It has been bitter cold in NYC this week. I’m one of the crazy runners who hit the pavement for a few cold runs and pretty immediately regretted it. What an idiot.

Frrrrrrozzzzzen Abby.

Frrrrrrozzzzzen Abby.

Thank goodness for the sunshine that kept my exposed face warm. By the way, I’ve been sporting my Run: Bundle Up Jacket all week and I am loving it for the sub-30° runs.

So what’s happening in the fitness world this week? Well, the fallout from the ING New York City Marathon 2012 comes to a relative close, as today is THE LAST DAY TO CHOOSE YOUR RACE CANCELLATION RESOLUTION or you lose everything. Mind you, runners only get entry into one of the races offered, they still have to pay the fees associated with the race itself. Wah-wah.

These are the options. Choose wisely, friends.

These are the options. Choose wisely, friends.

(I say get your money back. Who wants to pay $500+ for a marathon?)

Good morning, Vermont!

Good morning, Vermont!

Run with me!

Run with me!

PSA: If you’ve ever benefitted from physical therapy, consider running the NYU DPT 5K this March. Portions of race entry goes to raising money for research and I’ll be there running with my classmates. Join me! It’s in Prospect Park. Details here.

Don’t forget our lululemon Long Run Team meets tomorrow at 9am at the E. 66th St. store (temporary location during renovation: 1142 3rd ave, between 66th and 67th Sts.

Now go out and run!

  1. If you’re looking for a warm-weather race this weekend, take Carlsbad off your list. It’s normally 55-60 and sunny on race morning; we’re looking at 45 and rainy on Sunday. 😦 Sad.

    Also: I tried the “new BMI” calculator and what what WHAAAAT???? It says I’m overweight (I’m a 6.). BOO new BMI calculator. It also says my “healthy weight” range starts at 105 — at which point I’m pretty sure I’d be dead. I’m sure the new BMI formula is more accurate than the old calculation for people who are shorter or taller than average, but it makes us average-height people feel fat now. On that note, I’m off to the gym. 😀

    • Yes! Read the accompanying article because they found exactly that: the old BMI calculator WAS biased toward short people. Worked for you guys, but not the rest of us.
