The view of the New York City skyline from Astoria Park is beautiful.

November 5th, 2013, 3pm

It was 12.8°C with overcast.

I run by this view a few times a week. On the long runs, 7, 8, or 9 miles, I let the energy of this wild city fuel me. Fill my core with bright, determined energy.

That same energy can isolate you and aggravate you until you’re speeding everywhere, elbowing people out of your way. It can wear a person down.

New York City is a powerful force.

Adrian, David Wade, ankel and Ben said thanks.
