April 7th, 2012.
Ran my first 100K (60M) on the best (and yet mostly unknown) course in the whole NY area. It was an unsupported fun run with backpacks. 6,500ft combined elevation.
Two great runners - Michael Arnstein and Michael Oliva - mapped out this route, which takes you from the heart of Manhattan to the top of gorgeous Bear Mountain, all almost entirely on trails! Couldn't have wished for a better course for my first 100K. Overall it took us 13 hrs.
This is LIFE.
