September 24, 2006

This was one of my more interesting runs. Dropped Jake off for his guitar lesson in Forest Hills, parked the car and ran north into Flushing Meadow Park, crossed the Expressway, passed the Unisphere and headed over to Shea. Asked a person who was leaving the Mets game for his ticket and attempted to get in. Since these tickets are now scanned, you can not reuse them so I told the attendant that I forgot something. He let me in and I went down to my regular seats, watched the 8th inning then ran back on the return to Forest Hills. Total miles: 7.3. Good stuff.

TOCALO - I'm in a band again!

It's been over 10 years since I have played professionally in a band. I have been thinking about ending the drought for the past year and finally had enough nerve to audition for this band, TOCALO. The band is comprised of three outstanding musicians, Bill, Joe and Adrian and a fabulous singer, Brenda. They recently recorded a CD (prior to my joining) and it is for sale on CD Baby and on I-Tunes (just search TOCALO). The band is a hybrid of light jazz, latin and pop. I highly recommend their CD. I have learned all the songs on the recording and the band does play them live. TOCALO has appeared in many venues in the metropolitan area. For more information on TOCALO

NYC 1/2 Marathon 8/27/06

This was fun. Besides the fact that I had to catch a 5 AM train and run in the morning (which I dislike), I ran my best time ever for a half. 13.1 miles in 1:53:46 at an 8:41 per mile pace. I came in 3,480 in a field of 10,294. In my age group I placed 120 out of 542. Central Park was the toughest part, extremely hilly (the course spent about 7 miles in the park) before we busted out on to 7th Avenue when it started pouring. I made my way down 7th to 42nd Street, turned west to 12th Avenue and straight down to Battery Park. The thrill of running in the city can only be topped by the Full NYC Marathon in which I could not get in this year (lottery).

Sunday, May 7, 2006 It was a beautiful day and my best run yet. Ran the half in 1:58:45 with a pace of 9:04 per mile. My actual chip time was even better - 1:57. Nice course. Enjoyed the scenery. I was actually thinking of going all the way and doing the full marathon at the split before I decided against it.

Frey on the Run

Summer of 2006

I ran a total of 178 miles (as of 8/29) . Most memorable runs were the NYC Half Marathon and Wantagh to Jones Beach (and I mean the beach). Other runs were local: East Rockaway, Rockville Centre, Lynbrook and Hempstead Lake State Park.

4/19/06 RVC to Long Beach Run.

Ran 16.2 miles today in preparation for the LI Marathon (1/2). Beautiful day but lots of traffic to dodge running down Long Beach Road. Crossed Reynolds Channel and had a great view of the city. Made it to the Boardwalk and then ran back through Island Park.
