One of the reasons we have lingered so long in York is to have the opportunity to watch our daughter, Jessica, participate in the Men’s Health Urbanathlon in Queens, NY. The event consisted of a ten mile run through Flushing Meadows Corona Park, site of the 1964 Worlds Fair (which John attended as a teenager). During the run participants had to maneuver over, under, or around ten obstacles.
Jessica had trained for the event with a group of ladies from her gym, Phases Fitness, for months. They ran as a group, providing support, both emotional and physical, during the race. The group started strong, remained enthusiastic, and finished very strong with a time of just over two hours and ten minutes!
We really enjoyed watching the race and look forward to the group as they participate in their next event, a 100 mile run up and over the Rocky Mountains! Just kidding . . .
