Day 3: Yorkville

Until they start 2nd Ave subway, this part of city is not that accessible. I guess I will be on my feet mostly ;)

Day 2: Upper West Side

Oh west side! you never cease to amaze me. When it was time to decide on today's run, all I could think of was you and beloved M86. Maybe it's the spirit of the west or maybe audacity of hope, I was there with you.

Day 1: Roosevelt Island

Small island with absolutely nothing to offer, except living space and great Manhattan view. Nevertheless, one trip along the shore is just more than 5k, which makes it my first target. F train takes you there, and this was my first visit to the island.

1. New neighborhood everyday and no repeating of routes.

2. I will forfeit the challenge if I miss a single day in week 1.

3. I will post a pic from each day, and a short blog entry.

The only goal is to improve the speed. Currently my best is 7:30 mins per mile. I hoping that by the end of the month, I can reach 6:30 mins per mile as best, and 8 mins per miles on average for a 5k.

Inspiration can be found here, and here, and here.

Let it begin.
