On Saturday afternoon Jon and I headed out to McCarren Park to cheer on our friend who took part in the first North Brooklyn Runners Track Meet. It was sunny but freezing on Saturday and I felt bad for the folks who were wearing those short ass running shorts. However, the cold didn't seem to affect their speed. It was pretty amazing to watch the participants zoom around the track.
I've been thinking about joining the North Brooklyn Runners since I moved here but their speed and seriousness about running always intimidated me. I'm still intimidated but if I can muster up one or two friends to come with me maybe I'll join them on one of their beginner group runs. We shall see.
