If you haven’t enjoyed Summer Streets thus far this month – get out there and “Just Do It”. My marathon training group ran summer streets last weekend. I was slightly shocked by how busy Lafayette was at 7:30am! I can’t imagine how busy it was once all of the families came out for a day of play.
This year NYC GOV brought out the big guns to really draw a crowd to the 6 hour window of closed off streets up and down the east side. My run only went as high as 14th street so I wasn’t able to check out the “Voice Tunnel” but I did however risk losing my running buddies to check out the Zip Line and the Shape Up NYC activities at the Foley Square Rest Stop. The Zip Line queue was already 20 people deep at 8:15am while the Shape Up NYC yoga, spinning and hula hooping were already in full effect.
If you haven’t already, you have one more day, this Saturday the 17th, to enjoy Summer Streets and the weather looks perfect for it!
